Have a child in danger of falling through the cracks? In need of someone to put your child first? I can guarantee 100% of my time and attention and have a track record for success. I am two time city council award recipient for Excellence in Education. Don't wait until it is too late. None of my students are left behind. I have eight years of public classroom experience with grades 7-12. I served four years as an administrator where I oversaw the day to day performance of more than 500 children and 30 staff members. I currently am the Director for the largest private SES provider in the state.

Your son or daughter will learn and will learn to enjoy learning. I was responsible for bringing several new curricula to my building. One was the creation and development of a literature theatre program to Junior High with a culminating project funded through city council and performed at Queens Theatre in the Park.

My expertise is in literature. I have a degree in English with a focus in literature and poetry. I specialize in reading comprehension and vocabulary apprehension. I am also a very experienced and skilled writing instructor. Need help preparing for your SAT or GED, does your child need help in developing study skills, look no further. I am flexible and would start right away. I can be contacted any time.

AMAZING TUTOR!!!

After searching the tutor profiles, I sent out e-mails to several tutors that I thought would be good matches for my son. Well, I hit the jackpot. Joe responded promptly to my e-mail and was able to start immediately. My son was struggling with English Literature, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Joe was able to help him understand and comprehend the material. His grades improved immediately, right after the first session. What a confidence booster! Joe not only works with him on his schoolwork, but is also showing him how to study and how to enjoy the literature as well. He's made learning fun and uses wonderful analogies that my son can relate too. Joe is a caring and sincere tutor/teacher; he wants to see my son succeed and works with him until he gets it. He is extremely patient, reliable, accommodating, and one of the BEST TUTORS I have ever encountered!
