Are you seeking an individual to work with your child who is caring, sensitive, and patient? Then read on. My name is Mindy. I have 16 years of experience assisting Elementary, Middle School and High School students, including working with a diverse spectrum of special need students. My main emphasis is working with the Common Core Math programs. I also have experience tutoring for the algebra regents, COOP/HSPT, International 9th and 10th grade Exam, and the GED. In the past I assisted with statistical analysis for doctorate level candidates. There is nothing more satisfying then to see a child not only master a skill, but to see the smile of accomplishment on their face. I look forward to meeting your child, and working closely with you and your child to aid in their success!

In Kindergarten, I instruct students through two of the four literacy centers used daily to achieve letter and sound recognition and to increase writing proficiency. In first grade I read daily with each student working on strategies to help them achieve independence. I assist in the writing component of utilizing and organizing thoughts and sentences. For second grade, I assist with math and writing workshops. I help students to produce effective writing, revising and editing techniques. With third graders, I assist with reading, writing and occasionally math. Twice a week, I meet with two book club groups, which emphasize and incorporate reading strategies and techniques.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Mindy is helping my daughter get ahead of her work in middle school accelerated mathematics. She and my daughter seemto work well together.

Jeff, 31 lessons with Mindy

Outstanding math tutor

I was looking for a math tutor for my daughter who has always struggled with math. She maintained my daughter's focus. She tailored the session to her needs. My daughter loved her. She has patience and such an incredible demeanor. She taught my daughter so well that she received an A on her first test after an hour session. My daughter loved working with her. She is outstanding in every respect!

Lisa, 1 lesson with Mindy

Extremely competent tutor - helped identify, focus and correct problem areas.

Mindy helped me with Algebra 1 for my Common Core Algebra Regents. Mindy really helped me understand the areas I had trouble with, and I feel so much more confident about the test! She is really nice and very patient, I really enjoyed our session - THANK YOU !!

Great tutor!

Mindy has tutored my 7 year old son for nearly a year now and the progress is evident. She is extremely patient with him and always has methods to keep him engaged. He looks forward to her weekly tutoring sessions. She is even tutoring him during the summer to make sure he keeps his skill-set and learnings from 2nd grade, while slowly introducing 3rd grade concepts. In the areas where he struggles (reading comprehension, some math and telling time), Mindy always finds a way to incorporate each of those areas in her lessons. Mindy has helped us by sharing her concepts so we can utilize during homework sessions when she is not there, but most importantly, so we keep consistency in how our son is learning and studying.

Knowledgeable tutor

Mindy is working with my daughter on Algebra to prep for the Regents exam. She was very helpful and was able to adapt her approach to the new Common Core Algebra Regents. We will continue to work with Mindy.

Very patient and willing to do extra

My son has excelled with Mindy. She is patient and seems to understand his learning style. She always prepares for his lesson and presents things in many different ways so that he will learn the topic. I really appreciate her willingness to give daily practice examples. Strongly recommended.

Marie, 20 lessons with Mindy

Amazing

Mindy takes her time and finds ways to get our son, who has a short attention span, to learn. We continually see the improvement in his math. He adores her and so do we!

Very Patient: Our Daughters Love Working With Mindy!

Mindy has helped our daughters significantly, helping them gain a deeper understanding by teaching them techniques on how to approach each math problem, so they can advance on their own. They have both started to improve their grades and confidence.

Julio, 9 lessons with Mindy

Tuned-In

Tuned-in to the student's needs. Calibrates accordingly. Responsive to the student's difficulties as the student wends her way through Algebra's various challenges. Her availability lends to the student's growing self-confidence. Yet she is gently demanding.
