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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I am not a certified special ed teacher, but have an autistic son with moderate MR. Having dealt with therapists and professionals in the field for thirty years, I have a good understanding of Spectrum individuals. I network regularly and attend seminars on latest practices and medications. I have served as a parent advocate on CSE committees, and am actively involved in dealing with problem behaviors at my son's residence.

Bible Studies

I am a licensed Hebrew teacher with Yeshiva studies through high school. I taught Bible studies for 35 years at an accredited Hebrew Day School. I taught and tutored Regents Hebrew and Bible Studies. I currently learn Tanach at the Drisha Institute for Women in NYC.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a New York State Teaching License in K-6. I taught 4th, 5th and 6th grades in Long Island and 1st 4th in Sheepshead Bay, B'klyn.

English

I am certified in English, French, and Hebrew and hold Masters and Administrative certifications from New York State. I taught English abroad and prepared students for Matriculation exams.

ESL/ESOL

I love working with people who are truly interested in furthering their language skills. I lived abroad for three years and taught English to speakers of other languages there with great success. I am also a French major.

Grammar

I was fortunate to study linguistic with Dr. Noam Chomsky, while I lived abroad. I have taught grammar and reading to many different kinds of students.

Hebrew

I am fluent in Hebrew and have taught the subject at the middle school and college level for over thirty years. I am New York State certified in Hebrew at the high school level.

Phonics

As a licensed English teacher, I have always appreciated the structure of sentences. I speak several languages and have taught students to decode and comprehend a language by understanding how that language uses letter sounds, blends and syntax in its construction. I am certified to teach phonics as part of a Common Branches curriculum.

Regents

I have prepared students for the Hebrew Regents for over ten years. Since Regents is subject-specific, I am qualified to teach for all Regents subjects in which I am certified.

Study Skills

I am a certified K-12th grade teacher with over 35 years' experience teaching reading, language and linguistic skills in several languages. I ran an advisory program for Middle School study skills to teach students to organize, pace, and check their work. i have also mentored student teachers in teaching methodology and practice.
I hold a CAS license from New Paltz certifying me as an administrator.

Tennis

I have been playing tennis for over 40 years. I originally learned from a tennis pro who taught at a resort hotel. I currently play in regular games twice a week.
