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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor in this specific subject area because of both my education and my tutoring experience. I have a M.S. in reading, have tutored K-6 grade students for more than 20 years and operated a New York state certified K-6 school for several years in Uniondale, New York.

Phonics

I am qualified to tutor in this specific subject because I am a reading specialist with about 40 years of teaching reading, of which phonics is a part . I have a master's degree in this subject and have tutored many students in this area for many years.

Public Speaking

I am a retired Communication Skills lecturer with SUNY, which involved teaching reading, writing and speaking. I am currently a Barton reading, writing and spelling tutor who does public speaking for small groups locally.

Study Skills

when teaching study skills, I like a technique called SQ3R, where by I teach students to learn to become independent and self confident readers. Each letter stands for a skill:

S = Study

Q = Question

R = Read

R = Write (Rite)

R = Recite

Academic Generalist, Reading Specialist

I hired Mary as Learning Coach for my homeschooling son. She provides a balance of supervision and tutoring on 12th grade English and Social Studies. She immerses herself in the material by receiving copies of his books, and keeps him on track. At the same time, she teaches reading skills as foundation for success.
