I have been teaching for 4 years at a NYC public school and spent 6 summers as a teacher abroad. I earned my Master's from New York University and have students from elementary to high school.
I tutor various subjects in school, including reading comprehension, fluency, writing, and math. I have experience tutoring tests such as the SAT/ACT, ISEE, TOEFL, and other English exams and independent school exams, helping students successfully pass them.
I enjoy seeing the growth of my students over time and their confidence levels building. I love building relationships with my students and getting to learn more about different cultures and myself.
Stephanie has been wonderful with my son. She prepared him for his SATs in just a few sessions and he made a huge improvement from his first exam to the second. She provided effective strategies for him to use which really helped boost his score. She was very thorough and went over the topics so he would become familiar with what he would see on the test and provided great resources to help him practice. Seeing him improving each week also built his confidence and made him feel like this was something achievable. She managed her time well with him and we are so pleased that he was able to get the right tutor just in time for the exam. Stephanie is very caring and friendly which helped my son feel less anxious about the test.
Stephanie is very kind and patient and easy to work with. My son struggled with reading on grade level and after a few sessions, the strategies she gave and worked on with him in the sessions helped him improve rapidly. She also helped him learn to write words and sentences that he can now do independently. We are so grateful that Stephanie was able to help him in such a critical time. He's now in second grade and able to read and write in complete sentences and feels motivated and happy to go to school. She was fantastic!!
I administer an informal assessment (i.e. a few simple questions to know the student's English level, interests, topics to learn) and explain the structure of the tutoring sessions.
I have a Master's in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), Bachelor's in Childhood/Special Education and 4+ years of teaching experience in a NYC public school.
