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 work in a 1:1 self contained classroom for autistic, LD, and ADD/ADHD children. I am currently tutoring a child with severe ADHD. I have been working with this population for 5 years.

Common Core

I am a Second grade teacher. I have been in the district for 3 years. We follow Common Core everyday. I am currently tutoring a student in high school in reading and social studies following the Common Core standards given by his district.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NYS certified teacher. I have been teaching very young children for 9 years. I am proficient in teaching literacy skills to children. I have experience teaching Pre-K through 12 grade.

Phonics

As a teacher of very young bilingual children, teaching phonics is part of the curriculum for ensuring academic success. I have been teaching phonics to young children for 9 years in a Head Start program. Both my undergraduate and master's degrees include teaching literacy and phonics. My undergraduate degree is in Speech Pathology, which entitles me to teach phonics accurately to young children.

Study Skills

I am an elementary teacher in a Westchester school district. I am currently helping students study for SAT's and for tests administered by classroom teachers in the following areas: history, science, biology, ELA, and geography. Study skills include memorization, test taking strategies, organization, and practice tests.
