About Regina

I hold certification in both Special and General Education. My licence is in Special Education (grades 1-6), being that I have been teaching Students with Disabilities for 8 years now. I teach in Queens at an elementary school. I have taught children between the ages of 6-10. I enjoy teaching and helping children to learn and grow to their fullest potential.
I tutored for about 2 years and find it very rewarding. I find that nothing beats one to one, direct attention. I love to witness that light bulb moment when a student finally gets something he or she has been struggling with or even when they feel good that they are finally getting something they had difficulty with. My experience with special needs children has allowed me to differentiate my instruction and tailor each lesson to meet the needs of each individual child.

I am very strong with literacy and grammar. I am a firm believer in consulting the dictionary when I don't know a word, the exact meaning of it, or how to spell it. I am the one people go to when they need something read to be corrected for grammatical errors. If I don't know something, in addition to using the dictionary, I tend to look things up on Google.

I am very good at helping students with phonics in order to become better readers. I reinforce letter sounds and help them to put those sounds together to make words. I find repetition is key.

I am an excellent speller. I won the school spelling bee when I was in the 6th grade and won 2nd place in the district. If I feel that I am unsure of the correct spelling of a word, I always consult the dictionary and instruct students to do so as well.

I am willing to tutor children of all ages, especially in the literacy area. I can tutor math as well. I can also provide students with useful tips on how to succeed on the state exams. Please feel free to contact me to learn more and schedule lessons. I look forward to working with each child to help them succeed along their educational journey.

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.

Handwriting

I have very neat handwriting. I teach Fundations, which is a program that helps students to read and write. I have been teaching for 8 years.

Phonics

I teach children how to read daily by having them connect letter sounds to make words. I currently teach Special Education (grades 1-6). I am a licensed teacher with 8 years of experience, as well as 2 years experience as a teacher's assistant. I teach Fundations, which is a program that helps students to read and write.

Special Needs

I have been teaching students with disabilities for 8 years. I hold my teaching license in Special Education. I have taught students with a range of disabilities and create IEP's annually.

Study Skills

I feel as thought I am very proficient in teaching students how to take tests. I can offer specific tips and strategies so they can improve their study skills and habits. I also know how to utilize study guides quite well.
