Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra 1 is the first stage of learning in the complicate course path of High School Math. I have 9-plus years of experience tutoring in high school mathematics. I utilize all resources available to help a student understand the complexities of Algebra.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2/Trig is one of the most complex subjects facing high school sophomores and juniors today. Having a tutor that can help a student navigate through the course is essential especially when a student starts to struggle. My experience over the last 9+ years has helped many students successfully navigate through their course and the regents.

Business

My qualifications for tutoring in business is that my undergrad was a degree in Business Administration. I also spent 30 years in the non education world working in different business ventures. My experience spans retail to employment which included marketing, financial management and employment practices. Add my 11 years as a teacher and professional tutor makes me more than qualified to tutor in the business arena.

Career Development

I spent 20 years in the employment industry where I assisted professional people secure better opportunities. My undergraduate degree is in business and my qualifications from helping people secure career opportunities makes me eminently qualified to tutor in career development.

Chemistry

Chemistry can be one of the more difficult courses to master in high school. The concepts are easy to understand when following a progression. I have been tutoring in Chemistry for over 9 years and have never had a student not succeed. The study skills program I developed enables students to easily learn and comprehend the content. Working one on one with a tutor also enables the student to get the help necessary to master the content of the course.

Geometry

I am a tutor in all the math areas including Geometry. I have been tutoring in Geometry for 9 years and never have I had one student fail.

Marketing

My undergraduate education is a Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing and marketing management. Along with that I have 36 years of experience in various industries where marketing was a major part of the job. I also ran my own business for many years which required hands on marketing experience. As a tutor I am always looking for ways to market my expertise and ability to help students improve. I continuous look at materials that come up that keeps me fresh in marketing ideas and concepts.

Regents

I tutor in all math and Science subjects for NYS Regents courses including Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra 2 in the Math area. In sciences I tutor in Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics. I have over 12 years of tutoring experience in all regents exams.

SAT Math

My SAT preparation experience is 9 years in both reading and math. I use both repetition of problem solving and test taking strategies to help students prepare for the SAT.

SAT Reading

I have been tutoring in SAT prep for the last 9 years and have had success in preparing my students to take the exam. SAT preparation requires practice and reviewing test taking strategies which is what I do with all my students.

Social Studies

Even though my major concentration was business my minor is in History. Social Studies is a major part of History including understanding cultures, historical events, and the impact it plays on our societies today. At the middle school level social studies concentrates on the American experience but at the High school level the course curriculum covers more the World History arena. My knowledge in all areas of History comes from both my minor and my desire to read about History and its effects on who we are as a people.

Study Skills

I have been an educator for 10 years and have developed a study program that has seen remarkable success. The students who follow this program have seen an average of 10 - 15% increase in grade point average.

TEAS

I have been tutoring in standardized testing over the last 9 years which includes the TEAS exams. The Teas exam is a combination of English (reading comprehension), Math (Algebra and geometry) and basic sciences which includes biology and chemistry.

Trigonometry

I have been tutoring in Trigonometry for the last nine years. Not one of my students tutored has ever failed the Regents.
