About Helen

One of the best things about tutoring is seeing a student's face light up with understanding. It means I have done my job well and that is a very rewarding feeling.

I have many years of tutoring experience. In college, I was a peer tutor. During my career, I was always the go-to person for training in new procedures, as well as, training new associates.

Recently, I have tutored children and adults.

I am conversationally fluent in everyday Hungarian. I would be able to assist you in conversational English if you need a Hungarian speaking person.

You will not regret hiring me. I am good at what I do.

Special Needs:

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.


I hold a BBA in Accounting and have many years of experience in the field. In college I tutored my peers in Accounting. If tutoring in basic Accounting I am your person.

American History

I always got an A in History. I find the stories of the past engaging and very interesting. History can teach us a lot if one bothers to listen.

I will help you understand the History of this nation. It is not boring.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutoring experience with the No Child Left Behind program. My students were K-6th grade.

Elementary Science

I loved science as a child. The world around us is fascinating. All children are curious.
Science helps answer their boundless questions of why.

Science is not just dry facts. It is important in day to day life.

For instance, cooking involves chemical changes. The human body can be studied in endless detail. I can go on and on but there is limited space.


I was born and educated in this country. I have always done well in English and have experience in tutoring in English.


My first language was Hungarian. I did not learn how to speak English until I was in kindergarten. I am trilingual now: Hungarian, English and ASL.

I understand the unique challenges of an individual learning English as a second language. I was young, when I learned English. I observed my parents and extended family learn English as adults. Often, I would be asked to help. I learned ASL as an adult. Hence,I also understand what it is to learn an additional language as an adult.

General Computer

I have used the computer for many many years. If you need general knowledge on how to use a computer I can tutor.


I am proficient in grammar and have tutored children in the past.


I love to read anything from Shakespeare to Science Fiction.

I always loved to analyze the meaning of a story. The motive of the characters, the words used or the setting.

It is deeply satisfying to fully comprehend the richness of a story.

Microsoft Excel

I am certified as a 2007 Microsoft Excel Office Specialist.

Microsoft Outlook

I am Certified as a Microsoft Outlook 2007 Office Specialist.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I am certified in Microsoft 2007 PowerPoint.

PowerPoint is the most creative of all the Microsoft Office Suite products.

Your creativity can be unleashed and your presentation will be can come alive.

I can show you how.

Microsoft Word

I hold a 2007 Certification in Microsoft word.

Microsoft word is one of the most popular and powerful word processing programs.

Let me show you how to use it.


I am a college graduate and speak three languages, English, Hungarian and American Sign Language. Further, I have knowledge of Spanish and Hebrew but I am not fluent.


Today, word processors help a great deal with proofreading. However, it does not replace the human mind.

For instance, made and maid are both valid words. A word processor program will not pick up the misuse in a sentence, since they are both spelled correctly.

The above is just one example of the importance to know how to proofread.


I am an Accountant and have used QuickBooks.


I read 3 to for books a week. I love reading

SAT Reading

I love to read. I read 3 to four books a week.

I have tutored children in English Language Arts. It is interconnected with reading.

Sign Language

I have taken four semesters of ASL at the Seymour Joseph Institute of American Sign Language located in Staten Island. I took the classes within the last five years. My lowest grade was a B+.

I am not fluent, but have a working knowledge of the language. I can tutor basic to intermediate ASL.

Study Skills

I have a college degree and have recently taken several classes to upgrade my skills. I know how to study and am able to aid others to acquire this valuable skill.

Tax Preparation

I am an Accountant by trade and have taken tax courses to keep my skills current. I
took a refresher course in 2010 at Liberty Tax to keep abreast of changes to the tax code.

In addition, I have prepared taxes.


I love to do the Reader's Digest questions on vocabulary.

Words help you express yourself. They also open doors to understanding.

Let me help you.

World History

Someone once said, "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Another person once said, "History offers valuable lessons of how we are now and can help predict what we will be in the future.

History is alive. It is a powerful tool to allows us to learn and grow.

Viewed in this light, history can be easy to learn.


What can I say about writing as I write this?

Writing is one of the fundamental ways people communicate.

If people did not know how to write clearly, blogs, novels, articles and a host of other things could not be read.

It is hard to imagine a world without knowing how to write well.

Very knowledgeable!

Helen is an excellent tutor, I plan to continue lessons with her. She was very knowledgeable and not only was able to answer all the questions I had but offered additional information in a very thorough and concise manner. She broke the subject matter down making Quickbooks less intimidating and easy to understand. After my first lesson, my confidence has grown and feel as though I too can soon
