Elementary (K-6th)

I have been certified to teach elementary education, K-6, in New York State since 1972. I taught 5th grade for 3 years and 6th grade for 6 years. I have substituted in all of these grade levels for many years. I have been tutoring K-6 students since 1990 to the present.


Phonics

I am certified in New York State with elementary education, grades K-6. I have been teaching phonics since 1972. I use the Wilson program to help teach phonics. It is a phonetically based program.


Study Skills

I am certified to teach N-6, elementary education and have taught for Questar III for over 32 years. I helped students prepare for the New York State ELA, Math and Social Studies exams.


Special Needs

I have worked with special needs students for several years. My experience includes students with learning disabilities, deafness-blindness, expressive & receptive language deficits & auditory processing problems. I have 6 cousins who have special needs. Growing up I spent time with all of them.


ESL/ESOL

I have been working with ESL students for the past few years. My experience includes students from many different countries in Europe and Asia. I use different ESL books and games to help students learn the spoken and written aspects of the English language.


ADHD

I have tutored many students with ADD & ADHD. My patience, hands-on activities, knowledge of the Wilson program, music & sense of humor have helped students succeed. The key to success in working with these students is to help them stay on task in a fun way.


Hard of Hearing

I have been certified to teach hearing impaired students, grades N-6, since 1976. I am also certified to teach social studies to hearing impaired students in grades 7-12. I have taught hearing impaired students since 1976.


Speech

I have worked for over 25 years with students ages 4-17 who have had speech impairments. This included working on improving expressive & receptive language skills; improving fluency and articulation skills. Some students had very little speech so techniques such as sign language were used to develop and expand speech skills.


TEAS

I have a current LPN license as well as a teaching certificate to teach Math, English, Science and Language up to seventh grade. I have tutored many students who were preparing for standardized tests such as the TEAS and have had excellent results. I use various techniques to help students pass this 170-question test. I feel my experiences, education and expertise will help any student become successful in passing this test. Since this test was developed by educators I know as an educator/nurse myself, what it takes to prepare for a standardized exam for students entering nursing school. As of March 2016, I have a 95% track record.


Social Studies

I have a BA with a minor in 7-12 Social Studies. I also have certification to teach Social Studies to deaf and hard of hearing. I taught Social Studies for three years in a self contained 5th grade classroom. I also taught Social Studies for another 6 years in a multi-age, self contained classroom to students in grades 5 through grades 8.
