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.

ADHD

I have a Master's Degree in special education from Touro College. I have taught in an integrated co-teaching classroom for several years. I have had a great deal of success helping my students who have ADD/ADHD.

Dyslexia

I was trained at Bank Street College in the Orton-Gillingham reading approach and have successfully used it with many students. Orton-Gillingham is a systematic and structured approach to teaching decoding, spelling and handwriting. It is highly recommended for use with students with dyslexia. I have the training and materials to successfully implement this program to benefit your child.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a bachelor's degree in child study. In addition, I am permanently certified in NYS to teach kindergarten to sixth grade. I have been teaching for the past 16 years. I now teach 6th grade, but I have had experience in every elementary grade.

Grammar

I am a NYS certified elementary and special education teacher. I have many innovative ways and materials to teach your child grammar. I can help your child master grammar skills and improve his or her writing.

Reading

I am a permanently certified elementary and special education teacher. I have been teaching reading and writing for more than 16 years. I can help your child improve his or her reading skills and help your child become a proficient reader.

Spelling

I am a NYS certified elementary and special education teacher. I have many innovative ways to teach your child spelling. I have tutored many students who struggle with spelling. Besides memorization techniques, I've utilized games and crafts to help students learn basic spelling skills.
