About Scott

I have taught for ten years and tutored many subjects for middle and high school students, from honors students to students with special needs. I enjoy working one on one and helping students discover their potential.
Working one on one and in small groups are the best ways to learn and teach! Communication and feedback between the teacher and student occurs more frequently and efficiently.

I have tutored algebra for ten years. Most of my experience has been helping students who previously failed the old Regents exam and now Common Core exam pass.

My first three years of college centered on a mix of science, math, and history because I was unsure of a major. This has allowed me to be extremely versatile.

I became an Instructional Coach a couple years ago because teachers needed tutoring for transitioning to Common Core.

My undergraduate major eventually turned into social studies education. My first tutoring experiences were helping students achieve higher scores on the Global Regents & US History exams. I created my own study skill strategy for both curriculums.

My Master's Degree is in special education. Prior to becoming an Instructional Coach, I was a special education teacher for eight years.

Math, Biology, Earth Science, Life Science, any history, and Common Core makes me able to help in any subject. My daughter is a seventh grade student taking Eighth Grade science and math! She has scored ratings of Four on her CC state tests. This was no accident!

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.

American History

I was trained in "History Alive," a differential learning approach to teaching history.

Common Core

The last two years I have served as an Instructional Coach helping teachers implement Common Core standards, lessons, close reading strategies, and learning strategies. I have tutored middle school and high school students in Common Core math and English.

Social Studies

I developed a review and memorization strategy for Global History and US History. This strategy is based on learning analogies in history and geography. This has helped both students with special needs and high achieving students get the grades they should achieve.
I have a Bachelor of Science in social studies education and have taught Global History & Geography (grades 9 & 10) as well as US History (grade 11). I have also taught Participation in Government and Economics.

Special Needs

I have a Master's Degree in Science and majored in Adolescent Special Education. I am a certified special education teacher in New York State. I have taught a diverse range of students with special needs. From 6:1:1, 8:1:1, and 15:1 to co-teaching; the range of classes and students with special needs is extensive.
