About Adam

I am a tutor who is well versed in English. I also teach theater, drama and comedy. It is my desire to empower uplift and teach those with a need to learn English everything I have learned. The fact that I am bilingual is very helpful to the Latino young students here in New York city. Sports is something else I am good at, and since I am 6 feet 5 inches, tall I play basketball very well.

I am a performing arts teacher. Acting, Drama, comedy and stand up comedy are my specialties. I have been in the Screen Actor's Guild for 8 years. I happen to be very knowledgeable of American history and Biology as well. I can teach students to be comfortable reading aloud. Indeed
it will be my pleasure to help fellow New York students overcome confidence issues with speaking, reading, and writing English. I also want to educate those students who want to pursue a career in acting and theater. I have always been a tutor, or at least since I became a father in 1990. I taught my children how to read classic books such as Goodnight Moon, Caps for Sale, and Where the Wild Things Are. My approach is to be patient and I make learning fun. I smile a lot when I teach and I always make sure the students understand completely before moving on.


I have tutored/ taught in community centers in Queens after school, for a couple of hours in the evening for the past 7 years. I taught chess, speaking in front of a group, English, spelling and phonics. I usually taught elementary school children ages 6 to 11. I also tutored children in my church for about a year, helping the students who struggled with the English language (I spoke in Spanish and English to them). I do not have any certifications or awards, but I love empowering students. I am open to online tutoring as well.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I am 6 feet 5 inches tall and have played basketball all my life. I played college basketball as well for Long Island University in the 1990s. I am very good at defense.

Chess

I have been playing chess since 1976. I have taught 3 of my 4 children how to play. I enjoy playing and always look for new strategies to incorporate. Life is like a game of chess...you must THINK before you move. I play chess every week sometimes outdoors as well in New York city parks. I am always searching for those who love the game as much as I do. I also play online chess as well.

I do a lot of events that involve heavy audience participation and am regularly called upon to generate conversation at public events.
