About Alicia

Hello! Thanks for reading my tutoring profile. For the past ten years I have taught Elementary English and Math. Currently, I have a Special Education degree, ESL certification, and Reading and Language Arts certification. I have taken post graduate classes at Kings College and St.Joseph's University. My experience also includes working part time in mobile therapy and teaching the summer ESY (Extended School Year Program). I have also done homebound instruction, after school tutoring, and many other clubs.

I favor an interactive approach to teaching and learning! In our tutoring sessions we will work with manipulatives and other educational tools. As a parent or caretaker you can be sure that I will go above and beyond to meet your students needs.

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.
