About Sandra

I am an experienced teacher/tutor for over 28 years, licensed by the states of NY and MD. I have worked in a diversity of settings, servicing students with different levels of academic maturity. This experience has allowed me to amassed a variety of strategies to support learners wherever they are.

Most of my teaching has been on the elementary level, including special education & gifted programs, but I have also tutored high school and adult level students with much success.

My career as an excellent teacher has been documented by my consistent above average success, measured by state test results and by the affirmation of parents and school administrators. My most applauded attribute is the ability to change students' attitudes about learning. Attitudes and belief in one's ability is the heart of where learning occurs. The teacher's most important role is not just to teach content and skills but to shape a scholarly character where students become motivated and empowered to achieve and direct their own academic success.

My education background includes a master's degree in both Elementary Education and School Administration focusing also on advanced courses in school psychology. I love tutoring because it's my passion and when my passion arouses passion in my student, we both walk away feeling purposeful and successful.

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.

Elementary Math

Math is a tool to help master relatedness among all aspects of life. It combines, it distinguishes, it measures. As such, when math is taught within the circumstances of life, it becomes easier to master, whatever the age level… When students understand the purpose of math in the real world… they more easily grasp and retain math methods, skills and operations.
I am experienced in engaging students in mathematical situations for 25 years and I have achieved excellent results.

Reading

I am an outstanding reading tutor because I recognize and rely heavily on a two-directional approach: 1. motivating the student to desire to read is crucial, and 2. engaging that student in a carefully diagnosed, and individualized plan to meet his/her reading needs. Motivating strategies could include connecting student to materials in their interest, reviewing text features to gauge writer's intent. Developing a relationship with text prior to reading it, greatly reduces comprehension challenges.
