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.

English

I am a native speaker of English with a Master's degree in teaching. I have always excelled in English Language Arts and languages in general. I am an experienced translator (Italian-English)and have done editing, proofreading, and copy writing work as well. I spent 11 years in Italy teaching English as a foreign language, during which time I was also trained in various teaching methods, and held the position of Director of Studies at a language school. I am also a qualified examiner for UCLES exams and BEST Plus. While substitute teaching here in New York, I have often covered English classes and I have also co-taught with other teachers in English classes, or was otherwise able to observe English lessons and materials.

ESL/ESOL

I have NY State certification in TESOL and over 10 years' experience teaching English in Italy to students of all ages. I have a Master's in Teaching, and while in Italy I received training in teaching English as a Foreign Language, as well as serving as an official examiner for Cambridge English Exams. I was Director of Studies at British Institutes Language School, where I oversaw curriculum development, teacher training and exam administration and grading, among other duties. I taught all levels, from beginning to advanced, and to all age groups- elementary to adults.

Grammar

I have extensive experience in teaching English grammar, due to my many years teaching English as a Foreign Language in Italy.

Italian

I obtained a diploma of Master of Arts in Teaching:Italian from SUNY Stony Brook, and I hold New York State permanent certification in Italian: 7-12. I also taught Italian to American college students studying abroad in Rome for several semesters. In addition, I taught Italian to Elementary school students for three years- all grades K-5.
I lived in Italy for over 11 years and my Italian is very native-like.

Reading

I have co-taught in Elementary classrooms as well as taught Italian language and culture in Elementary schools. While substitute teaching in New York, I have often covered Reading English Language Arts classes. I have also proctored standardized ELA exams and assisted Special Education students taking these exams. I am familiar with the New York State Common Core requirements for English Language Arts.
