When you want to work with English language learners, special needs students, students with disabilities, or other diverse student populations, you'll need to take the New York State Teacher Certification Exams (NYSTCE) program's Educating All Students (EAS) exam and pass it. We provide an EAS class that is focused on helping you do just that while helping you better understand concepts on the exam and building the skills you need to facilitate effective learning for these students. Whether you need to improve your skills in parent-teacher relationships to build community support for a student, improve your ability to help English language learners develop English literacy skills, or learn about technological resources you can use to facilitate learning for a student with a disability, EAS tutors can adapt to your situation. If you're not sure what your EAS preparation should look like, an EAS prep instructor can perform assessments on your abilities and identify your learning style and knowledge gaps. With this information in hand, you can get customized EAS test prep that caters to your individual requirements.
There is a lot you'll need to know to work with diverse student populations, so the EAS exam covers a wide array of topics. Here's just some of the concepts you can cover in EAS classes:
