About Rory

Get results and feel good about yourself in the process. With encouragement and a steady approach to achieving goals, you'll make progress and enjoy the lessons.

My students love the way I teach with fun injected into the time we spend together. I taught all subjects in 6th grade for ten years and have continued to tutor and teach in one-on-one sessions and classroom settings. Getting the parents involved in the learning motivates us to do our best and feel proud of ourselves.

From language arts, math, science and social studies to study skills, you'll be happy with the results!

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 have a Masters degree in Elementary Education. I taught all subjects: math, reading, social studies, science, music and physical education. I was a tenured teacher in the South Euclid-Lyndhurst school system and taught for ten years on the sixth grade level.

I continue to tutor students.

General Music

I studied classical piano for 27 years. I am a professional singer who was a cantor for 20 years in temples. I teach students piano and voice. I have been the music director of 16 productions since 2008 with Beachwood Theater. I play all styles of music, can lead choirs and direct shows.

Hebrew

I studied Hebrew in daily classes since I was 10 years old and graduated with honors from elementary and Hebrew high school. I studied the Bible in Hebrew and spoke only Hebrew in class.

I have taught B'nai Mitzvah lessons for 20 years and served as a cantorial soloist for that same time period. I am well versed in Biblical Hebrew and modern Hebrew.

Piano

I studied classical piano for 27 years. I continued to play the piano as music director of the Beachwood Community Theater. I play all styles and am a master teacher with a masters in elementary education. I have studied music history, theory, harmony and can arrange music.

Study Skills

I was a tenured sixth grade teacher, and now tutor students individually. Keeping a binder with a list of assignments leads to completion of work. Students practice reading with phonics usage. They review math facts in different ways to become assured. They make columns of names and dates to learn history. To improve study skills, sit in a designated place, arrange the materials in front of you and work methodically to achieve mastery.
