I am a 1st Grade teacher in Brooklyn, NY and also have several years experience tutoring. I love helping my students build their confidence and find new strategies to tackle challenging academic material.
I believe that students can greatly benefit from the addition of one-one tutoring both academically and personally.
I am very familiar with K-2 Common Core State Standards for math and am able to teach to these standards in a variety of instructional ways.
I have experience teaching reading from beginning phonics/pre-reading through 4th and 5th grade reading levels. I am experienced in all areas of reading instruction, including phonics, comprehension, and fluency.
I teach a variety of phonics curriculum including Open Court and Reading Mastery. I am able to teach phonics to new readers to target any phonics-based reading difficulties.
Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson. I am available during select weeknights and on the weekends.
