About Eileen

I am a retired teacher of social studies and special education. I've worked with many different styles of learners. It's my job to discover how you learn best. I was instrumental in helping students pass the U.S. History and Government Regents, one of the requirements for graduation. I've also worked with a home bound student with Lyme Disease. Currently, I am tutoring a highly motivated ESL student, who wants to become an RN, through the Literacy Suffolk program.

Now is the time to set yourself up for a good year! There are benchmarks that you must meet before you move on. More will be expected of you than ever before! I understand the pressure students may be under not only to pass but to excel. I have chosen to spend my time helping students meet the benchmarks, have more confidence in themselves, and surpass expectations.

I am a Certified Social Studies teacher 7-12 with experience teaching children with Asperger's.

Let's start the new school year off right by planning on three hours of studying every night and getting a tutor to make this the best year!

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.

Aspergers

I am qualified to tutor students with Aspergers because I have direct experience. One of the students in my class was diagnosed with Aspergers. I recall that she never wore her prescription glasses. She was unique in so many ways. I welcome the opportunity to work with you. I just may have the activity you will enjoy doing.

Social Studies

I am qualified to tutor social studies because I was a certified social studies teacher. Even though I am retired, I am still interested in history. I volunteer for a historical society in my community. Also, I still may have materials that will help clarify a subject for you. Social Studies covers a lot of ground. If you could see that it doesn't exist alone but in tandem with other subjects, you will be ahead of the game.

Special Needs

As a Certified Special Education teacher qualified to tutor special needs students K-12, I aim to provide direct instruction to students. I graduated from SUNY Stony Brook majoring in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences and C.W. Post majoring in special education. I welcome working with you or your child to improve performance, build confidence, and increase critical thinking skills.
I am a retired teacher with recent experience working with adult literacy, the traumatic brain injury population, and educational services to a local school district in afterschool care. I chose to keep active and help everyone be the best they can be!
