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 18 years of teaching experience in Reading, Math, Language and Writing at both the elementary, high school and college level. I taught 6th, 7th and 8th grade Math and Writing in New Jersey and taught in the Adult Literacy Program for Northampton Community College in both Monroe, Pike and Northampton Counties. I work individually with each student at their level and use different approaches for different students since all students have different learning styles. I especially enjoy teaching elementary Math and Reading and have positive feedback from all of my students. I enjoy teaching this age level and feel that through my many years of experience, I can offer a student individualized instruction, patience in working at their own rate and the ability to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities.

Elementary Math

I have many years of experience teaching elementary Math in both public and private schools. I enjoy teaching math to elementary students and think that I have a good rapport with them. I am very patient and work within each student's individualized learning style. I try to help students with their anxiety about math and help them to develop confidence in their ability to solve math problems.

Study Skills

I hope to help students develop good study habits and overcome test taking anxiety. I have taught problem solving and Overcoming Test Anxiety at Northampton Community College for 12 years as part of my GED classes. I have had and excellent success rate with my students in taking and passing their exam.

Writing

I have 12 years of experience in teaching writing at Northampton Community College for the Adult Basic Literacy program. I have worked with students of all ages to help them improve their essay and letter writing skills.
