I have been working with the Department of Education for the past nine (9) years, and have been in my current teaching position for the past four (4) years. I am a Special Education Teacher at PS347 in Manhattan, and have taught in grades one, four, five, six and eight. I have worked in Integrated Classroom Teaching (ICT) and Special Education Teacher Support Service (SETSS) settings, where I have assisted students in both whole and small groups. I am interested in becoming a tutor because I believe that my prior background working as a teacher's assistant, tutor, general and special education teacher have prepared me with experiences that will provide to be helpful when engaging students in the learning process.
I attended Boricua College and Teachers College, Columbia University, where I received a BSc in Childhood Education, EdM in Reading Specialist and Deaf and Hard of Hearing and MA in Reading Specialist, respectively. While attending classes at Teachers College, I was exposed to tutoring within the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Reading Specialist dual Masters Program. Additionally, I tutored students in English Language Arts (ELA) who were preparing for the state test at the school where I worked. These experiences has afforded me the opportunity to learn first hand what it entails to support students in their area(s) of weakness, as well as hone in on students strength(s) to assist in developing programs that will cater to the needs of the students that will ensure their success. I was so intrigued with this aspect of learning support, as I have witnessed how effective this type of support can be to students in any academic area.
After becoming a classroom teacher, I realized the importance of tutoring students who need that added assistance, especially in the elementary grades where the fundamentals of learning continue to be an integral part of their learning process. Tutoring reinforces concepts/skills being taught in the classroom, as well as allows students to build their confidence while engaged in the learning process. I have seen how difficult it can be for teachers to provide all the additional support necessary for students to succeed in areas they need enrichment or continue to struggle in. Therefore, tutoring provides the extra support needed that will allow students to perform at their optimum level.

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.
