About Clare

I am currently a Pre-Kindergarten teacher at St. Ann School. My teaching certifications are for Special Education ages 0-8 and Early Childhood Education ages 0-8. Although I specialize in young children I am more than capable (and enthusiastic!) about tutoring older students up to middle school math and elementary-high school ELA.

Regarding special education, I've worked with students with a wide variety of abilities. Most of my experiences is with students with ASD and/or language delays.

All students need to develop the foundational skills necessary to succeed in higher level math courses and I am prepared to help students in elementary through middle school build those skills

I have always loved learning and teaching ELA and my own writing skills are of a high quality

3+ years in early childhood education

Certified in Special Education and received a Master's in Special Education from Hunter College

Please contact me for help in any elementary subject and any level ELA tutoring. I hold all students to the highest standards of education and my goal for each student is to thrive in school and beyond.

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.

Autism

Over the past five years, I have taught students with varying degrees of Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am currently working in a Pre-K through 8th grade school. My Master's in Special Education specializes in Early Childhood Education (children ages zero-eight years old) but I have much experience in and out of the classroom with older students.

Common Core

This is my fourth year teaching. In New York City, the common core has been implemented since I started earning my M.S.Ed and teaching in the classroom. I refer to the Common Core every day and are comfortable with working with and teaching common core strategies and concepts.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently working in a Pre-K through 8th grade school. My Master's in Education specializes in Early Childhood Education (children ages zero-eight years old) but I have much experience in and out of the classroom with older students. I am comfortable teaching all K-6 subjects.

Handwriting

Developing the foundational skills for good handwriting is emphasized in pre-kindergarten. I work with my students' handwriting skills every day by strengthening their fine motor muscles and writing, painting, and drawing with a variety of utensils every day. If older students are having a difficult time with handwriting, I will refer back to the skills I teach young students because those initial skills are the most important for handwriting success.

Phonics

While earning my M.S.Ed, I took multiple courses where phonics was extensively studied. I have experience in teaching phonics especially in early childhood education and elementary education. I am very passionate about teaching language and communication skills and phonics is a building block of reading.

Special Needs

I am currently working in a Pre-K through 8th grade school. My Master's in Special Education specializes in Early Childhood Education (children ages zero-eight years old) but I have much experience in and out of the classroom with older students. I am comfortable teaching with language delays, motor delays, ASD, Down Syndrome, and speech delays among others.

Study Skills

I am a teacher and am very good at communicating relevant and practical information to students in an easily digestible manner. I have always received good grades in school and have developed study skills that yield consistently positive results. I would love to share my strategies with students struggling or needing more support in a variety of subjects.
