Hi, I’m Nechama! I graduated with a Dual Master’s degree from Mercy College. I am certified to teach children from birth through grade six, as well as children with disabilities from birth through grade six. In order to teach my students more effectively, I furthered my areas of certification to learn how to teach bilingual students, as well as students with visual impairments.
My education has taught me to provide my students with a well-rounded approach. Currently I am a Math teacher and Teacher of the Visually Impaired at the Lavelle School for the Blind. I believe in teaching a child everything they need to know in order to be successful. I collaborate with my colleagues on a consistent basis to determine what my students need to know, and what the best practices are in order to teach them.
In the past, I taught in a bilingual Yiddish school, and was also a teacher in a Hebrew school on Sundays. Those experiences help me teach my current students, most of whom are also bilingual. Visuals for those who can see, Google translate for those who can’t, and lots of other best practices help me teach those students as well.
In particular, I love teaching Braille and Nemeth to my students, and take great pride in their successes. I enjoy teaching them how to write; another one of my interests. Back in my senior year of high school, I won an award for an essay that I wrote. This inspires me to keep on writing, and to help my students learn to write as well.
I am looking forward to tutoring children through this online platform so that they can reach their academic goals. I am easy to reach and will always do my best to respond to messages as quickly as I can. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you!
