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 taught elementary school for the last 12 years before I became a stay at home mom. I taught a range of grades, for example, kindergarten, 1, 2, 4, and 6. While in most grades, I did teach all subjects, we did departmentalize in 4th grade and I taught math along with other subjects. While teaching 6th grade we departmentalized also and I taught computers.

ESL/ESOL

My last 5 years of teaching were done in an inner city school in the Bronx. This particular school had many students who were ESL students. I am also going to school currently to receive my 2nd masters in TESOL. I will be graduating in February of 2012.

Phonics

I taught kindergarten for 6 of the 12 years that I taught. I believe that Phonics was the basis for all other subjects that the students learned. I taught my students how to read, write, and sound out difficult words.

Study Skills

I have taught for 12 years. The last year teaching I taught 4th grade. While teaching 4th grade in NYS, we had to prepare our students for the NYS Exams in ELA, Math, Science, and in the beginning of 5th grade they had Social Studies. We had intense study skills lessons daily all year round.
