About Helen

Hello!

I am a 30-year-old Columbia University trained social worker seeking tutoring opportunities on the Upper East Side. I have extensive experience working with students with disabilities, specifically students with ADD/ADHD.

I know that many students who receive special education services or who are struggling in school are bright and capable of learning, but lack the skills of executive functioning (the ability to prioritize activities, plan for homework, manage time, stay organized, identify multiple steps needed to complete a project, etc.) needed to excel in the classroom. These are my favorite kinds of kids!

I have a Master of Social work from Columbia University, and extensive experience helping kids develop the skills of executive functioning needed to excel in school. I have several years' experience working with students with a broad array of disabilities.

I know your child is smart! And capable! And sometimes disorganized/unfocused/etc. I can help your child develop the skillset he or she needs to reach his/her academic potential.

I can also help your child understand his or her learning difference and why some areas of school are tough for him or her, and re-instill confidence.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have an MSW from Columbia and my focus is working with students with IEPs. I have experience working with students with ADD/ADHD in both public and private settings. I am trained to work with students and families to understand ADD/ADHD and how it affects their ability to learn and to develop and hone the skills of executive functioning (organization, time management, planning, prioritizing, focus) that often affect the performance of students with ADD/ADHD.

Special Needs

I have a MSW from Columbia University and over 6 years of professional experience working with students with a wide array of special needs, including students with learning and attention issues and students with developmental or intellectual disabilities. I have worked with students with special needs in both public and private schools. I approach tutoring students with special needs using differentiated instruction and addressing both the content at hand and evaluating for gaps in executive functioning skills that might be hindering homework or test achievement.
