I have been tutoring since 2004 and I have worked for the a local school district and several tutoring services. I have worked with students needing supplemental tutoring, with students having special needs, and students who have emotional issues. I have tutored grades 3-12 and children who were cognitively challenged. I have excellent computer skills, writing skills and specialize in Math and Science. I feel equally comfortable tutoring English and Social Studies and am licensed as an assistant teacher in the state of New York.

I hold a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Miami (BSIE) and have worked in both the private and public sectors. I worked for a Fortune 500 company and a metropolitan transportation authority. I also have completed 24 credits towards an MBA.

I like to think of myself as a jack of all trades, very organized and methodical and work well with students of all nationalities, races, religions. I can easily relate to people since I have lived in several locations, here and abroad and have worked at different types of jobs. I also have personal life experience which has trained me to be very empathetic and patient.

I am also very resourceful and advise students where to locate information, especially on the Internet. I encourage students to find the best method of learning that suits them best and above all, I train them to think on their own. I will lead them to a correct answer and a clearer understanding of subject matter by asking them questions which test their knowledge. In this manner they see what needs to be learned and practiced.

I have tutored Geometry on a steady basis and this school year most of my tutoring assignments have been for Geometry. I understand the problems students have with Geometry. When I was in high school many years ago I asked others for help. For that reason I know how to simplify it and make it much less intimidating and understandable!
