About Russ

I am very personable, patient, reliable, and flexible. I have many satisfied clients from private tutoring and college classrooms. I also have written two books and was featured in the media. I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) and have tutored students of all ages. Now, I am semi-retired so my schedule is very flexible for days and times to tutor online.

I believe that a tutoring session should be a two-way street, enabling the tutor to make the best use of the allotted time to maximize learning. I also taught American and world history for over ten years to middle school and high school students. I am very skilled with algebra, mathematics, English, and general study skills. In addition, I have taught SAT preparation courses in the past, both in a group and privately.

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.

Hard Of Hearing

I am profoundly deaf and have been since birth. I am fluent in ASL and also speak and lipread fluently. I have a master's in deaf education from Gallaudet University. I am very well-read in teaching deaf and hard of hearing people. I also have written two novels that were published. Both novels revolve around deafness. I taught deaf students for over fifteen years.

Sign Language

I am profoundly deaf and have been since birth. I am fluent in ASL and I work as a full-time ASL professor at a Community College. I use the Signing Naturally curriculum, and I am very familiar with all aspects of ASL including parameters, classifiers, grammar/syntax, and many other features. I have tutored ASL privately and also have taught at other schools.

Social Studies

I was a social studies teacher in New York State for ten years, focusing on Regents courses with deaf students. I am professonally certified as both a social studies teacher for grades 7-12 and as a teacher of the deaf for K-12. I have had many students excel on all social studies Regents exams over the years. I am very well-read, and always am learning more about history on my own.
