About Sonya

I have a BA degree in English Language and Literature from Bloomfield College. I also have an Ma degree from Teachers College in New York City. I have been a classroom teacher for several years and have taught several different grades and ability levels. I am patient and creative.

What I love the most about tutoring is not only helping students get ahead but the relationships you build. I enjoy getting to know the whole student. In my philosophy, the better you know the student as a person the more capable you are of establishing what they need academically. There is nothing more important to me than seeing students succeed in their studies and in life.

In high school and in college I maintained a steady 3.7-4.0 gpa and above in all of my studies. I have taken numerous English courses including Shakespeare and Modern Literature. I also have done freelance writing and have had a book self-published.

Please contact me if you are in search of a top notch, kind, patient and dedicated tutor.

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 am a certified teacher with certification in Elementary Education. I have worked with elementary school students for several years in the classroom and in before and after school programs. I work very well with elementary school students as I have tutored that age group and have provided homework help as well.

Handwriting

With the decline in handwriting instruction in schools, there is a need to receive this instruction outside of the educational system. I have several years of experience in elementary school and have taught handwriting in my position as an English teacher. I have culled various resources to help students work on this skill.
