Hi! Thank you for your consideration. I'm an elementary school teacher and have 7 years teaching experience under the Common Core Standards. I have experience with all ages from K - Grade 7 but have spent most of my time with 3rd and 4th graders. I'm professionally certified in Childhood Education (Grade 1 - Grade 6), Students with Disabilities (Birth - Grade 6), and Literacy (Birth - Grade 6) and have experience working in General Education and Special Education. Most of my experience is in an Integrated Co-Teaching environment with 19-31 total students, with at most 12 students with IEPs. As a Special Education teacher, I have written IEPs and conducted annual reviews.
On a more personal level, my interests include pets, travel, theater, reading, watching movies, dance, listen to music and drawing. My favorite series is Harry Potter, book is Matilda, subject is math, sport is baseball, color is teal, animal is dog, food is pizza, ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip, and some day I would like to publish a book. I find that the best way to get to know a student is to find out his/her interests. I can then use those interests to engage in academics and personalize every lesson.
Summer 2014, I was trained in the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Approach to Reading. I have used this reading intervention approach with my class for the past two years and find it very successful.
I am very familiar with the Common Core State Standards and have helped design curriculum around them at my school. State testing can be stressful, but I have used several testing strategies with my students and I am happy to share them through test prep tutoring.
I've worked with young people all of my life through teaching, camp and mentoring. I love their energy!
Having been trained in Orton-Gillingham, experience with Fundations and Wilson, along with a certification in Literacy, I am confident that I can help your child with phonemic awareness.
I'm looking forward to meeting you and your child. Together, we can help your child succeed. Hi! Thank you for your consideration.

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.
I have taught in the classroom under the Common Core State Standards since 2009. I am a NYC public school teacher. I have been trained to design curriculum in ELA and Math that covers the Common Core State Standards. I have administered NYS ELA and Mathematics Tests on grades 3, 4, 6 and 7.
I have the following years of teaching experience at each grade level: 1 year with 6th grade, 1 year with 2nd grade, 4 years with 4th grade, and (most recently) 1 year with 3rd grade. I had administered NYS ELA and Math Tests in grades 3, 4, 6, and 7. I have substitute taught in grades Pre-K to grade 8. I have had leadership roles at camp with 1st grade and several years with 5th grade. I was a medical director at a camp for 2 years with grades 1 through 5. Under the new Charlotte Danielson teacher evaluation system, I have been rated "Highly Effective" for the last 2 years.
In 2014, I was trained in the Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Approach to Reading. This program is based on the Wilson Reading System. The program focuses on phonemic awareness and the rules of phonemes and graphemes. I have worked with my students by having them pound syllables and tap sounds to help with spelling. We, also, used sand and cards to help remember the different ways to spell a sound. Students also apply what they have learned to give their own examples of when a rule is used.
