I am a certified New York State teacher and have taught grades 3 - 5. I am very familiar with the Common Core state standards. If you would like support for your child in preparation for the NY State Math or ELA test, please contact me. I am also available to tutor for the SAT and SHSAT. I also offer tutoring services to support your child with the material they are currently learning in the classroom. I believe that for students to be successful they need more than rote memorization of procedures. They need to have a solid understanding of the concepts so that they can then apply and transfer strategies. All of the students I have tutored have shown significant improvement in their grades.
