As an experienced educator at the middle / high school level, I have successful engagements with the emphasis placed on goal setting, prioritizing and event management. These are skills I use personally and professionally. I am equally comfortable teaching one-on-one as well as in the group setting. Tutoring location is flexible.

I have worked as a substitute teacher in the Wantagh School District for over five years teaching the following subjects: physical science, living environment, Italian, and pre-algebra. Privately, I have been tutoring SAT/ACT/GMAT students, middle and high school students in chemistry, algebra, living environment and elementary school students in math.

The parents of the students that I have worked with have been pleased with the one to one attention that I have given their children and with the results. I personalize my instruction to the students' interests to make the subject matter more relevant to their point of reference.

I am passionate about learning and enjoy when the individuals pick up on this enthusiasm and revisit the subject matter we are studying with a new perspective.

GMAT

GMAT

Having a strong background in math and verbal skills as well as understanding the format of the GMAT exam, I can help the student identify the strategy that works best for them to answer the questions. I review the basics of math for the problem set and data sufficiency sections as well as the key points for reading comprehension and critical reasoning. I review grammar and rhetoric for the sentence completion section of the exam.

ESL/ESOL

I have been tutoring the Critical Reading and Writing sections of the SAT for several years. This standardized test emphasizes sentence structure, mechanics and punctuation as well as reading comprehension. I also have been tutoring the ACT which has the same type of emphasis on mechanics and reading. Additionally, having lived in Europe and learned two languages, I also know the importance of speaking and auditory comprehension. I have personal experience in tutoring Italian and what methods work or don't work while trying to become fluent in another language. I feel that I have both the personal and professional experience in being able to help a student learn English as a second language.

I learned Italian while I was going to school in Italy. It was a total immersion course. Even though, there were those who spoke English, I tried to speak only Italian by going to the movies, watching television, sitting in the park and listening to the Italians speaking. I practiced doing crossword puzzles in Italian, reading children's books in Italian and later on more advanced literature as well as medical books in Italian. I did grammar exercises and took Italian lessons. I still read Italian newspapers, listen to Italian programs and still speak Italian.

Study Skills

In the course of my academic studies, I have learned how to take a subject and break it down into its smaller components. I have found that it is easier to learn a more complex topic when the fundamentals are more secure. I am a firm believer in the use of a calendar to prioritize events which then helps in time management. I also work on goal setting and categorizing them according to short term, medium term and long term goals and then what has to be done to achieve these goals. Therefore, I use a calendar for mapping out academic work in order of due date, the work involved and goal settings to help the individual focus on what they want to do and how they can go about achieving their goals.

Great ACT math prep tutor

My daughter needed help with prepping for her ACT in the math section, this was the first lesson but my daughter felt it was real productive and seems to have a better grasp on the material they covered. She’s looking forward to her next lesson with Mona.

Mona is simply a wonderful, caring Tutor

Mona had greatly helped my daughter to prepare for the SAT. Mona is a caring, no nonsense teacher that connected instantly with my Angelina. Mona gave my little girl confidence in herself. Mona is a very respectable, sincere woman who is a blessing to our family. Mona gave Angie assignments for the next lesson with the insistence to text her if Angie had any problems before the next lesson. Highly recommended!!!

Great tutor

Mona is a wonderful tutor who is very knowledgeable about history and is helping me prepare for my US SAT II. She has also helped me with my Math 2 SAT II preparation, and is always willing to explain a concept and make sure you understand it. She always asks for feedback on the lesson and teaching method to make sure the time is used efficiently and the teaching is adapted to you. I would highly recommend her.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Mona is a wonderful tutor. She is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging and my daughter enjoyed working with her. I appreciated how professional she is. Mona was open to speaking with me to get grounded on our needs before we set up our first session. I was also pleased that she accepted feedback from that session and adjusted accordingly. My daughter's sessions with Mona were definitely beneficial.

Margaret, 5 lessons with Mona
