About Abby
Hi!

I am a certified ESL teacher and academic tutor. I have experience teaching all levels of English, including English for the workplace. I have taught ESL speaking and writing classes at St. John's University; Teachers College, Columbia University; the New Americans Welcome Center; as well as through numerous private organizations. I also tutor students who need help with English/Social Studies/Literature classes, AP English classes, the REGENTS and the SAT.

I hold a BA in Media Studies and an MA in Middle-Eastern Studies. Therefore, if you need any help writing papers in the arts/humanities/history, I would be happy to help out. Prior to working as an ESL teacher, I worked in publishing as a literary assistant/ online editor and had great success editing manuscripts, papers, and even blogs.

As far as teaching is concerned, I
genuinely enjoy helping others and try to make my classes/ sessions as communicative and engaging as possible. Tutoring is a refreshing experience for me since I learn something new from my students each and every day.

Learning is just a matter of perspective; finding new ways to look at and explore the world around you. I look forward to meeting you and exploring together!

Abby is a great teacher. I was lucky to find her on this website. She genuinely cares about her students and wants them to improve their language skills. She is very friendly and easy to work with. She let you choose a topic or suggests a topic that you might like it. We have been focusing on my speaking and writing skills. I have made a big progress in just over a year. I highly recommend Abby !

Abby is a really attentive teacher, she has been a big help to English. Besides the weekly lessons, we also worked on some articles for my blog and for my portfolio site. She was really involved and she had a lot of original and creative ideas. Working with her is a surprisingly efficient experience for me. Thanks to her, my English knowledge got better earlier than I expected. In addition, she is a really
caring person, and she always has new ideas about how to improve. She also pays attention for her students personal interests and prepares individual materials for each lesson.

About Melissa
Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I am a fashion design and sewing teacher on Staten Island. I have been teaching children and adults how to sew since 2014. I've been sewing since I was a child, and I've been teaching since 2007.

I am mostly self-taught, and that, coupled with my youth, gives me a unique perspective when teaching. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson- almost all of my students finish the first hour with a handy drawstring bag to keep their new sewing supplies in. I have a specific sewing curriculum for the first 3-5 lessons that helps lay a groundwork for making more exciting things.

After we finish those steps, I work individually with students to make whatever they would like, from Halloween costumes to memory pillows to peplum tops. The choice is
yours. I'm not the kind of teacher that is going to make you spend hours mastering a straight hem because frankly, that's really boring. I want you to learn while working on projects you care about

My experience includes;

-I worked in a tutoring school teaching kids from ages 5-17 in all subjects.
-I designed a program called Creative Studios for creative writing, fashion design and fine art. I taught these subjects to students aged 8-12.
-I teach sewing and fashion design (including fashion drawing) to various students in a one on one format.
-I teach fashion design and sewing to tweens, teens, and adults at SI Dance and Arts Center
-I am a resident costumer for Sundog Theatre.
-I taught at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund Saturday Academy
-I am pursuing a Masters in Adolescent Education in Social Studies

Please note that I am located in Staten Island, NY. I may be able to accommodate some Brooklyn students, but please inquire before booking. I have locations in 10306 and 10309 that can accommodate students if you don't wish to learn in home.

My studio space is located at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. It's a lovely, artsy space with bright yellow walls, four sewing machines, 2 professional mannequins, and a closet full of fabric and notions!

I was having a lot of trouble in English all year and it wasn't until I started working with Elyssa that my writing and reading got better. Thanks to her, I ended up getting a 92 on the regents. She is also one of the the sweetest people I've ever met and I can't wait to work together again next year.

About Dr. Arnold
Hello,

I have a Ph.D. in Math and have been teaching college math courses and tutoring HS math courses for over 40 years. My top subjects are Statistics, Probability, Calculus, Discrete Math, Finite Math as well as HS AP and pre-calculus classes.

I tutor in-person as well as online. With online tutoring I can be contacted on short notice and if I am free we can connect immediately so I can give homework assistance or help prep for an exam.

For In-Person tutoring I tutor in my home office, in your home or at a mutually agreeable location. I am near Queens College and St. John's University if meeting on campus is convenient. (Travel charge might increase for a longer travel distance or time. Upper level or graduate courses might be at a higher hourly rate.)

I have been successfully tutoring students for as long as I have been
teaching. My goal is to give my students the ability to understand the mathematical concepts that will enable him or her to do well in their particular course.

I know that math does not come easily to everyone and I tailor my tutoring to go at a pace that is appropriate for each individual.

It is just as important for a tutor to listen to the student as it is for the student to pay attention to the tutor.

I look forward to putting my tutoring to work to help you meet and exceed your expectations.

Dr. F. was extremely patient with my son. He always made sure to go over the questions until my son was able to do them on his own. We were able to contact him and get online help right away which was great when my son was stuck on a homework assignment.If anyone asks if I would recommend him I would give an emphatic yes!

I am a doctoral-level student and haven't taken a statistics course since being an undergraduate over 15 years ago. As such, Arnold has been tremendous in helping me revisit this topic, and I firmly believe he has the skillset to do this no matter what the student's level educational level is. He is extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and patient. I highly recommend him as a tutor. You will not be disappointed!

Hi, my name is Larissa Oglesby a junior psychology major at St. John's University. I've always had a passion for education since I was a little girl. Ultimately, because of my love of education and passing on knowledge to others, my life long goal is to become a professor. Throughout my college career so far a lot of my time has been focused on research. However, I would love to devote more time to educating others. My past and present work experiences are centered around small children. I'm always excited to work with this age group and find it makes work fun. I hope I can be a phenomenal tutor to your child and enrich their academic development.

Larissa was a great tutor. Twice a week after school she helped my daughter in math and reading. I watched my daughter go from below grade level in math and reading to exceeding expectations on her final report card. She was dependable and always set high expectations for her. she never let her get off easy. And it truly worked wonders.

I am a teacher and I have taught students from the age of 3-12. I don't like to just sit and have a child's head in a book the whole time. I like to make things fun. I incorporate your interests in the lesson, we play games, us technology and at times will have to use a book here and there. Learning needs to be fun and engaging, children need to be interested in what they are learning to get the full benefits of a lesson!

About Melinda
Though I have an IT background, I have worked in the educational arena as a technical writer for the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE).

ETS develops and administers the SAT, the Advance Placement Program, and other programs on behalf of the College Board. While at ETS, I was instrumental in writing Business Requirements for the Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) Mobile Application listening and reading tests. These tests set the standard for assessing English-language listening and reading skills needed in the workplace.

The NJDOE initiated the New Jersey No Child Left Behind (NJNCLB) initiative. This program significantly changed the schools’ role in K-12 education by focusing on success as measured by student achievement of all students including English-languag
e learners, students in special education, and poor and minority children, whose achievement, on average, trails their peers. I was instrumental in writing Business Requirements and standards for the NJNCLB Program.

I have also worked in the Telecom and Financial industries writing Business Requirements. I taught Sunday School for many years to elementary, middle and high school students. My background enables me to teach students the many building blocks of effective reading as well as how to comprehend reading assignments. As you know, comprehension ensures students are acquiring knowledge from the texts they are reading. This will allow them to evaluate and discuss ideas, events, and information about the text; apply and extend these ideas to real life situations; apply and extend these ideas to other texts; determine and remember the most important points in the text; and read "between the lines" to understand underlying meanings.

My passion is to see my students excel in reading. I firmly believe that reading is essential to unlocking potential and shaping minds. I want my students to reach their reading aspirations while having a great time. I looks forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better reader. Send me a message and let’s get started!
