N.Y./Touro College (EdD)
I am currently certified to teach grades 1 - 6 and Special Ed Grades 1 - 6. I received my undergraduate at Syracuse University with my Masters in Ed. from Touro College. I have been teaching for over 2 years and spend many hours tutoring all age groups in both ELA and Math.
I believe parents can be a great asset in the classroom. I have found that including them is beneficial for the students and for me. One example of this is having the parents come in and help the students with editing and revising. One-on-one help is great for the students and the parents really like to be a part of what is going on in their child’s class. I believe in making my lessons authentic. For example, when teaching a lesson about addition with money, use a menu from one of the local restaurants and have the students “order” food and add up what their bill would be. I believe in using a variety of teaching techniques. There are many different ways of learning and every child learns things differently. One example of how I have done this in my classroom was how I taught the students the process of a bill becoming a law. The students were introduced to the process through reading and discussion. During the next lesson the students role-played the Michigan government. The members of the house and the senate worked to pass a bill that was then signed by the governor. I believe in using a variety of assessment techniques. The four main types of assessment that I use are: individual projects or exhibition, one-on-one oral tests or interviews (i.e. for reading), portfolios, and the occasional quiz. A student, who does not do well on one type of assessment, may excel at another. A variety of types better show me what knowledge the students have. Using a variety of assessments is important because they showcase different levels of understanding.
I believe it is very important to create a supportive learning environment. One way I create that support is by making sure that the students have a variety of ways for getting help. These include, asking the teacher, asking other students, and using the many resources that are available in the classroom. I am currently certified to teach grades 1 - 6 and Special Ed Grades 1 - 6.

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.
I am qualified to tutor any subject from birth to grade 6. I am certified in Early Education Birth-6th and Special Education Birth-12 (Generalist). I have over 3 years' experience teaching at the elementary level as well as providing tutoring services.
