I have Fifteen years of experience in classroom education as a Science Teacher, Remedial Math and Language Arts Teacher, and Substitute Teacher. I have experience with all demographic groups and economic groups, and have worked with age groups ranging from K to 12th grade through adult. I have over twenty years of experience as a Private Tutor in Math and Science, Business Math, and Language Arts.
One on one and small group tutoring is a rare opportunity to make a connection with the student that is not possible in the classroom. Everyone is different in their ability to learn and process information. As a tutor I have a chance to learn the best approach to each individual student. Often the time spent with a tutor is all the student needs to turn things around in their problem subject area.
I'm looking forward to working with each and everyone of you, because everyone should have the opportunity to succeed in education.

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.
Most of my educational experience has been with struggling and at risk students. I taught remedial math and reading at an elementary school to many students who were diagnosed ADD and ADHD. I am currently substitute teaching in the Greene County schools and I work with ADD and ADHD almost every day.
I have a lifetime Elementary Education Certification with Highly Qualified Status from New Jersey. I have three years experience teaching remedial English and Math at Vance Elementary School in Asheville, N.C. I have several years experience as a private tutor with Elementary age students.
I have a lifetime certification in Biology/General Science from New Jersey. As a full time High School Biology/General Science teacher, I spent a significant portion of the curriculum on Genetics. This was important for my students because I wanted them to have an understanding of anatomy and health.
I have over 20 years of experience as a math tutor at all levels, from K-12 and adults.
Much of my experience as a classroom teacher and a tutor has been with grades K-6. I taught remedial reading at an elementary school, and have done private tutoring with countless K-6 students. The majority of my substitute assignments in the Greene County schools have been at the elementary schools, where I teach phonics almost every day.
I am a certified Elementary Education Teacher, and have three years experience as a remedial English Teacher at an Elementary school.
I was introduced to study skills in grade school, and have been developing, as well as teaching them ever since. I have been teaching study skills since I was a peer tutor at Middlesex County College, and have continued to teach them as a private tutor and a teacher. I find that I must keep these skills sharp at my current job, which is an environment that is constantly changing.
I received an Associated Degree in Liberal Arts with a Business Option. This degree required me to take 24 credits in Accounting. I've been doing my own taxes since I started working. I've been doing the short form, and well as the long form, which I needed to use as a home owner.
