About Eileen

I have worked in education for a number of years with students at all grade levels (K-12), as well as adults as both a substitute teacher and private tutor in all subject areas. I am in a unique position to identify and focus on a student's strengths and weaknesses to empower them to fulfill their educational goals and requirements. I have tutored many students in anticipation of state mandated testing and exams to achieve their goals, and adults looking to take GED and ESL exams, as well as students with ADD/ADHD in accordance with IEP requirements. I bring a global teaching methodology that embraces and enhances the learning experience for all students.

As a certified teacher in Business and Distributive Education, History, and Social Studies for New York and Massachusetts with South Carolina certifications pending, my background lends itself to the demands and requirements placed on both students and educators.

I look forward to your response, thank you.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have tutored many students of all ages and grade levels with ADD/ADHD, and have worked with teachers, parents and guardians to obtain the student's personal goals and those goals set by IEP requirements. I have also worked with students who are on medication, and have addressed their specific needs to achieve academic goals. I have tutored students privately with ADD/ADHD, and am familiar with the special focuses that are required to assist students with goals as outlined in IEP specifications required by school districts. I have a Master's degree in Reading, and I live in Mount Pleasant and am available afternoons, evenings and weekends. Thank you.

Aspergers

I have privately tutored students with Asperger's Syndrome, and have a M.S. in Reading where focus was spent on particular attention to this learning disability. I have worked with students at all grade levels whose IEP's have indicated Asperger's both as a tutor and a substitute teacher. Thank you.

Autism

I have worked with autism students at all grade levels and ages as both a substitute teacher and private tutor, as most students are mainstreamed into general classrooms, it is imperative to address the individual needs of each autistic student in accordance wit IEP specifications, as well as the distinct needs of the student (and parents/guardians).

A focused plan that is adhered to by all will only benefit the learning needs (and requirements) of each student. I have a Masters in Reading and have utilized numerous teaching methods to engage autistic students to achieve goals. I have a Master's degree in Reading, and live in Mount Pleasant. I am available afternoons, evenings and weekends.

Business

I have a B.S. degree in Business Education, and over 35 years' experience in the business world from law to journalism, and in both the private and public sectors.

Career Development

Over 35 years experience in various business careers. Managed and mentored contributing writers, reporters, photographer, and administrative personnel and others in both business and journalism. Have worked in Guidance Department on the high school level, and have mentored numerous interns in the business world in different professions.

Common Core

I have a Master's degree in Reading, and a B.S. in Business Education. I have five teaching certifications and work as a Substitute Teacher for all grades and subjects. I am familiar with the requirements for Common Core, and feel confident in my ability to tutor in this area.

Dyslexia

I have a M.S. in Education/Reading and have worked with dyslexia students as both a substitute teacher and private tutor. I have experience tutoring to IEP's maintained by both public and private schools for students at all grade levels with particular emphasis on reading and writing skills for success.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have privately tutored many students at the K-6 grade level, as well as worked as a substitute teacher for these grades for many years. I believe my certifications in both Reading (K-12) and Business (K-12) would benefit any and all students. Thank you.

Phonics

I have a M.S. in Education/Reading which required emphasis on phonics (as well as whole language) methods for reading and writing success. I have used phonics methodology as both a substitute teacher and a private tutor. Thank you.

Regents

As a resident of New York state for 35 years, I have tutored numerous students and grade levels in preparation of the Regents exams, particularly the writing and English portions. NYS advocates teaching to state exams, and as a former substitute teacher I have worked with many students in after school preparatory programs for standardized testing.

Social Studies

I am a certified teacher in Social Studies for grades 5-9.

Special Needs

I have a Master's degree in Reading, and a B.S. in Business Education. I have five teaching certifications and work as a Substitute Teacher for all grades and subjects. I have worked with many Special Needs students of all ages.

Study Skills

As both a substitute teacher and a private tutor, as well as a certified teacher in multiple subjects, I have always initiated the implementation of study skills to be utilized by students to achieve their goals. Mandated study skills designed to assist students to achieve their goals is a practice I have encouraged and endorsed in all subjects and grade levels. Thank you.

Swimming

I was a competitive swimmer for more than 20 years, and competed state-wide (Massachusetts) for those years. I have coached swimming on a private basis, and look forward to encouraging and empowering those who hope to increase their desire to learn and/or compete in this sport. Thank you.
