Study Skills

I have taught middle school science for 5 years. I have taught in high-needs urban schools, where students are not taught how to study or work independently at home. All study skills must be scaffolded, taught through direct instruction, practiced in class, and then practiced independently at home. I have many strategies on how to study, including making study guides and flash cards.


ADHD

I teach in an integrated middle school classroom. Each year, I have 3-8 students with ADD/ADHD. I use my knowledge from graduate coursework in special education, my experience helping all students achieve success, and support from my colleagues in the special education department to determine which supports and strategies will best help these students succeed. I have a repertoire of strategies that can help students with ADD/ADHD do better in school, including organization and time management skills.


Genetics

I have a B.S. and M.S. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. At Brown University, I took 3 genetics courses: Genetics, Evolutionary Genetics, and Computational Theory of Evolutionary Genetics. I currently teach basic genetics as a 7th grade science teacher in NJ.


Praxis

I am a certified teacher in NJ and CT. I have taken and passed several Praxis exams, and have received Awards of Excellence in several subjects. I am especially qualified to tutor in Praxis I and science Praxis II.


Regents

I went to school in NY, so I have taken many regents in different subject areas, always scoring above 90, and most scores above 95. I am familiar with the curricula and the review books available to prepare. I have spent time tutoring specifically for Regents Earth Science and Algebra I and II.
