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.

Common Core

I tutor all ages in the common core way. Working in an NYC public high school along with tutoring students of all ages, I am very comfortable and confident in the Common Core and, contrary to what many believe, I am a strong believer in the methods. It also does not hurt that I am in grad school learning the specifics of applying each standard to a lesson.

Phonics

My BA is in English and I am completing my Masters in adolescent education. I have tutored for over four years and have had students who are drastically below grade level reach grade level after I work with them, focusing on the phonetics of letters instead of a whole word so the student can actually develop their reading skills in all academic subjects.

Special Needs

I currently work in an alternate assessment classroom as a paraprofessional. The students suffer from both emotional disturbance and severe intellectual disabilities. I am confident in scaffolding and differentiation methods to assure learners of all abilities and styles have an equal chance at processing new material in any subject. I know how to create my own graphic organizers and also find videos, songs, or images to create multiple entry points to each and every lesson.
