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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 26 years of classroom experience.

I have taught reading, writing, enrichment, health, gifted, social studies, computer and library effectively and creatively to many children.

I am well educated and very good with young children. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia with a Masters in Curriculum and Teaching. I am a passionate and creative teacher.

Photography

I graduated from Regent Street Polytechnic School of Photography as AIBP (Associate of the Institute of British Photographers).

I have had a life long Career in London, Amsterdam, Sao Paulo and New York in Advertising and Editorial Photography with own studios in Sao Paulo and New York.

Public Speaking

I have taught for 28 years and helped many students present in ways that amazed and interested their audience.

I believe that the speaker must have poise, eye contact, a great opening and a memorable closing.

They must speak with the heart but use the mind. They must also smile and use note cards as this helps.

Reading

I trained in reading and writing workshops at Teachers College, Columbia. I have experience in all grades. I worked here for many years and I worked in Brazil.

Social Studies

I have certification to teach Social Studies in NY to grades 6-9.

When I did my undergraduate work at the New School in NYC, I minored in political science, and history.

I have also traveled internationally and learned a lot about many cultures. I lived in other countries.

Writing

I studied at Teachers College, Columbia and was trained at the nationally respected writing institute.
I have taught writing skills in elementary school and also interviewed well known writers on how they create their work.

Yoga

I have been a student of yoga for 15 years. I taught children a form of yoga in NJ. This is a type of yoga, play and meditation that helps the student relax and be his or her best. It removes stress and improves health.
