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.

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
