Elementary Math Tutoring is now available K-6.

I'm a graduate of Adelphi University. I have a BA in English/Communications and hold a Masters Degree in English. I am an Effective English Tutor Specializing in Reading K-12, Comprehension, Spelling, Literature, Study Skills, Reading Skills, Homework Help, ACT Prep and SAT in the reading and writing portions. I am also able to help with papers, essays and anything else one might have to do in class. This also includes College Entrance Essays.

I have been tutoring for over 22 years. I taught creative writing classes for Hofstra University Continuing Education Program. I've helped young students improve their reading and comprehension skills.

Ideally I'd meet with students either in their place of residence or in a nearby library; we could figure out what works best.

I have been quite successful at what I do.

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.

Ballet

I am a experienced dance teacher who has been studying dance for 35 years. I have taught tap, ballet, jazz and hip hop to students from ages 2 all the way to Adult. Some of my students have gone on to College and have continued their dance education there. I have been lucky enough to study with the who's who in the dance world. My teachers have danced on Broadway, won Emmy Awards as well as Tony Awards.

Ballroom Dancing

I have been dancing for 35 years. I have been lucky enough to dance with the biggest names in the dance industry. My teachers have been judges on So You Think You Can Dance, Ballroom Professionals, Ballet Dancers in Companies and Tony Award Winning Choreographers.

Common Core

I have been working with a student for the past few months on Common Core ELA. The teacher gave my student a packet of materials for us to work on. In the few months that I have been working with her, she has improved. The student has more confidence and sees a big difference in her work.

Cosmetology

I have been a dancer for 35 years. During that time I learned how to apply all my make-up myself. I even had the opportunity to apply make-up to my sisters bridal party.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working with Elementary K-6 for the past year. I have had students who could not understand what they were reading. I have had students who couldn't even do the basic math skills. After spending sometime with me the students basic math skills improved as well as their reading comprehension.

English

I am a experienced English tutor who would love to help. I have a BA and MA in English from Adelphi University. We could meet right away in the local library.

Film

At Adelphi University I majored in English, but minored in Communications. My end of the year project was to create a Video Production. That video production was submitted into the Adelphi University film festival. There were two students who had this honor and I was one of them.

Handwriting

I have been teaching K-3 graders how to read and write for the past 10 years. Their handwriting improved greatly. I worked with them one hour a week and they were prepared to work at school.

Hebrew

I have been speaking Hebrew for 30 years. My family was brought up Orthodox. I attended Hebrew School and my Uncle made sure we were Bat Mitzvah.

Marketing

I have been working in the marketing field for over 20 years. I own my own business and I create my own marketing materials. I have used Microsoft Publisher as the main source. I made business cards and flyers.

Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for over 12 years. I have been sending company e-mails as well as sending them to clients. We most recently update our system to a newer one.

Microsoft Publisher

I have been working with Microsoft Publisher for about 12 years. I was summoned to work and create newsletters for different companies.

Microsoft Windows

I have been working with all forms of Microsoft Windows for years. I had to submit papers for my undergraduate degree as well as my masters degree. I have been working in a company for the past twelve years and all we work with Microsoft Windows.

Needlework

I have been working in a Summer Camp program teaching students from age 5 to 15 needlework. We have made needlepoint designs as well as pillows.

Phonics

I was on the staff of Hofstra University's Continuing Education Program called Saturday Morning Classes for Young People. For the past four summers I taught K-3 how to read which included how to pronounce their letters. These students were not reading on grade level and certainly not ready for the upcoming school year. These students progressed so much during the summer. It was so nice to see and the parents were very pleased.

Photography

I have been doing photography since sophomore year of high school. I took photos for the school newspaper. Since then, I have taken two photography courses at Adelphi University and continued to expand my knowledge and abilities in this art form. I gained my passion for film through my love of photography. I am never without my camera in hand.

Public Speaking

I have been standing up in front of an audience for over 20 years. I have made speeches and have done presentations as projects for school.

Regents

As a student at Oceanside High School I took Regents exams from 9-12 grade. I was lucky enough to have some of the greatest teachers. I wanted to pass this on to my own students. So this year I started tutoring students to prepare them for the Regents exam. These were students who were failing. Well they past their Regents exams with flying colors. I am currently working with a student who will be taking the exam this upcoming school year. It is so rewarding to watch a student work toward better grades.

Salsa Dancing

I am a experienced dance teacher who has been studying dance for 35 years. I have taught tap, ballet, jazz and hip hop as well as Salsa Dancing to students from ages 2 all the way to Adult. Some of my students have gone on to College and have continued their dance education there. I have been lucky enough to study with the who's who in the dance world.

I've been playing tennis for almost twenty years. I even taught private lessons for a while at Hofstra University's Continuing Education Program. Admittedly I am only qualified to teach beginners or intermediate level players.

Theatre

I have been performing or working at the theatre for over 25 years. I have been in the audience, behind the scenes or on the stage before.
