"Certified elementary teacher willing to assist K-3 students"
I am currently a certified teacher who has taught grades k-2. I have tutored a third grader who's parents were worried he would have trouble with the ELA state exam. I was successful in helping him pass the test. I have very strong writing skills and had 80% of my students reading on grade level the past two years. I haven't had much tutoring experience, but I have been teaching for 10 years and am very experienced. I have experience with programs such as Fundations, Lucy Calkins Writer's ... ... More
"Narrative Art Lessons"
I have been working as a freelance illustrator of children's books for 15 years. I've also had experience teaching at every age level, either as a private tutor or college instructor (Syracuse University). As a working artist, I am especially qualified to teach students serious about going into the arts. I am good about recognizing a student's weaknesses and work closely with them to improve. I am fluent in multiple methods including: oil paint, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pen & ink, a... ... More
I have been working with Mr. Timothy for about two months and I've made a lot of progress. I have decided to take Japanese independently, in place of Spanish in school, and Mr. Timothy has agreed to be my teacher for the next two years to facilitate that.
The lessons are always really active - he brings in media, other sources, and offers relevant Japanese culture points that go along with the lesson I'm studying. The books he suggested are well written and organized, and he clearly has experience figuring out the proper pace for the course.
I am attempting to finish 3-4 academic years of Japanese in 2 years, and with Mr. Timothy's help, I definitely think this is possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning Japanese.

After returning to the States in 2001 I taught Japanese for two years at a public elementary school in South Carolina and have been teaching Japanese for the past eleven years at a private high school in Westchester. As a non native teacher of the language and... ... More
"SAT/ACT Expert with 15 years experience"
My background includes a BS in Education from Cornell University and MEd in English Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. Through the years, I have supported students in writing, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, French and the sciences. Test prep, however, is my favorite because students can develop a high level of anxiety through the process, and it is really wonderful to help diffuse that anxiety and demystify the entire test taking process.
I have been working with stu... ... More
"Early intervention: reading, writing, spelling, Orton-Gillingham, PAF"
I love helping kids learn to read! Many students struggle with reading, writing and spelling and are not given the right tools to succeed. I have been trained in Preventing Academic Failure (PAF) which is an early intervention program for teaching reading, spelling, and handwriting. It prevents or addresses reading failure in struggling readers and learning disabled. PAF is the most effective adaptation of Orton-Gillingham instruction and provides children with the building blocks they ne... ... More
