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 special education training and a specialty within my BA in elementary education. I taught in the NY public schools for 12 years. I also have a daughter with ADHD. I use a behavior modification program.

Aspergers

I taught special education for 12 years. I taught children with Aspergers, autism, L.D. ADHD, etc. I think kids with Aspergers are very unique.

I have a degree in n-6. I also have New York Certification in n-6. I can teach all subjects. I will motivate children and make learning fun.

English

I taught reading for 12 years in the N.Y. public schools. Reading includes writing and language arts as well. I am an avid reader and would be helpful to students who need help in English

Phonics

I have N.Y. certification in reading and have taught phonics to many. It is fun to see when that first understanding clicks for children.

Reading

I have a master's in reading. I make reading fun and challenging.
I taught in the Bronx for ten years. I have an abundance of materials and will teach your child to read.

Special Needs

I have been a special education teacher for many years. I love to see that spark when a special child accomplishes something. I am New York State certified in special ed.

I have a BA in elementary education. To teach study skills I would teach skimming, title and headline predictions, organization and context clues. There are many more study skills such as time management.
