About Dina

Hi! I would be more than happy to help your bright child improve in school and get on track for this year. I love teaching students and it is one of my passions. I love when students understand what they are learning and have that "light bulb moment." I will accommodate each and every student's learning style to my lessons and will help him/her with positive, patient enforcement through encouragement and rewards/prizes to make sure my students are happy at all times and I will try to make sure that he/she begins to like school and cherish the subjects he's/she's learned if he/she hasn't already! I am capable of working with different learning styles and bring enthusiasm and fun to every lesson. I am a patient and organized tutor as well. Over the last five years, I have taught school subjects for kindergarten-college. I have experience in science, reading, writing, social, studies, math, etc. No matter the subject I teach or tutor, I believe it's important to understand each students' learning style and use that to enhance learning. As a tutor, I will do the same. I would want to make this tutoring experience a valuable experience for both myself and the student. By understanding how the student learns, it allows this to happen. I would also be prepared to help the student with homework and study for tests, as well. Hi! I would be more than happy to help your bright child improve in school and get on track for this 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.

Algebra 1

I tutored many students in math from kindergarten-8th grade, received high grades on my math state exams, and am currently taking Precalculus so I have a great extent of knowledge about common core standards and math in general.

American History

Scored a 98 on the US History Regents Exam
Scored a 90 or higher on every exam in US History
Garnered a 100 as a semester grade for the final semester of 11th grade
Never got lower than a 95 for the class on my report card

Biology

Tutored many students in science from kindergarten-9th grade
Received high grades on my science state exams
Took chemistry last year so I have a great extent of knowledge about science Common Core standards and science in general

Common Core

I have tutored students in Common Core for many years. I incorporate the Common Core standards into each of my lessons. State examinations are based on the Common Core standards so my students learn skills on academic topics and get test prep for the state test at the same time.

Elementary (K-6th)

I use innovative methods and techniques in my elementary (k-6th) curriculum because I believe in the philosophy of every student being different and unique. Although elementary education may be the easiest part of a student's academic career, I don't treat it that way. I spend a lot of time creating my lessons to ensure understanding and comprehension in all of my younger students-using their strengths and weaknesses. I also try to make lessons as a fun as possible so that students aren't begging to go home by the end of the lesson. I try to create a love of learning that will last a lifetime through my curriculum/lesson plans.

Elementary Math

Tutored many students in math from kindergarten-7th grade
Received high grades on my math state exams
Am currently taking Precalculus so I have a great extent of knowledge about common core standards and math in general
Am also tutoring another 6th grader in math at the moment so tutoring your daughter would be fun

English

I got a 91 on my English Regents two years ago. I am now a student at Wagner College.

Phonics

I feel that I am qualified to tutor in phonics because I have 2 years of experience in tutoring Kindergarten through Grade 5. Furthermore, a good percentage of my tutoring was in Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2. I have assisted many children specifically with phonics and reading.

Prealgebra

I tutored many students in math from kindergarten-8th grade, received high grades on my math state exams, and am currently taking Precalculus so I have a great extent of knowledge about common core standards and math in general.

Study Skills

I am a 2+ year veteran of grades 4-12- teaching, including extensive work in study skills instruction. I am continuing to create innovative methods of helping students employ their newly learned study skills/note-taking skills to engage in critical reading and writing in responses to literature and to be able to use their new study skills in other subjects. I have a lot to offer in the areas of study skills!

World History

I scored 87 on my Global History Regents.
