About

I tutor online and/or in my neighborhood (Central Harlem) for $10 hourly. I help students compose or edit assignments. I tutor persons from 2 and 1/2 years on up. A list of subjects that I tutor is given below, along with my tutoring methodologies. I have access to the teachers' version of the Common Core NY worksheets and can guide homework just as the teacher would, supply all the answers, and give clear explanations. I also draw upon my 20 years as a tutor and as an editor and author. During the last 20 years, I have tutored well over a thousand children , first in a Learning Center that I owned for fifteen years and then in a charter school and in homes (mostly of children initially selected by the DOE, which cleared me to tutor them there based on my background check by NYSED). When helping a child, I show interest in the child and the child's immediate situation. I express warmth, responsiveness and appreciation. I nicely encourage a child for a given activity or one that I create. I am always upbeat, positive, and enthusiastic. I also help adults with skills, test-preparation, and/or composing/editing writings. Here is fuller information about myself, followed by summaries of my tutoring methodologies, My name is John. I am a highly educated, richly experienced, energetic teacher and tutor, who guided the skills development, and formed warm relationships with more than a thousand children of all ages and diverse backgrounds in the 11th Street East KUMON Learning Center that I owned for 15 years until March 2009. During that period and since, I have also successfully tutored students preparing for entrance examinations, Regents' examinations, or the ACT or the SAT. Since 2009 I have been teaching, tutoring, and mentoring students in charter schools, giving tutoring, homework help, and test preparation in the homes of children and youths, and helping adults with writing, ESL practice, and college courses. In addition to my work as a professional tutor, I helped in the homework of my two sons (now in their early twenties) in City & Country and then through gifted-and-talented programs and into Stuyvesant High School, and was a parent representative on the School Based Management Team at MS 104. Before tutoring, I was an adjunct instructor creating and teaching courses and guiding, one-on-one, lecture practice at a seminary with an international student body, in connection with which I edited or copy-edited philosophical books and essays. An academic press published my own scholarly essay in an anthology. Earlier, I was the regional executive director of a nonprofit organization, organizing conferences and forums on societal issues. Here is a list of subjects that I can tutor or teach. For k-8: READING, LITERACY, WRITING, MATH, SPANISH I AND II, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE. For high school: LITERACY, WRITING, SPANISH 1, MATH (THROUGH ALGEBRA I--PLUS FACTORIZATION WITH EXPONENTS, QUADRATICS, WORK WITH IMAGINARY NUMBERS, GRAPHS OF EQUATIONS).. Test prep: OLSAT, ERB, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, COOP, TACHS, HSPT, NYS MATH, NYS SOCIAL STUDIES, REGENTS INTEGRATED ALGEBRA, REGENTS US HISTORY, REGENTS GLOBAL HISTORY, SAT, ACT, GED, ASVAB. For university: WRITING, RELIGION, CIVIL RIGHTS, MUSIC THEORY, MUSIC HISTORY, REMEDIAL MATH, MATH 101, COMPASS A SUMMARY OF MY METHODOLOGY IN TUTORING MATH I locate any foundational weaknesses in the student's knowledge and skills, and help him or her remedy them. I may simultaneously teach new processes. I give a clear, step-by-step explanation of a rule or process, with an example, write these down for the student to consult, and guide the student in learning to complete the process. I assign homework, since mastery requires practice. A SUMMARY OF MY METHODOLOGY FOR READING COMPREHENSION I guide a student in underlining in or marking up passages, which is crucial to success. Important for understanding a passage is mastery of grammar and syntax sufficient for locating the referent of a pronoun. I teach and give practice for doing this. On these foundations, a student is able both to answer general questions and to draw the logical conclusions necessary for answering detail questions. A SUMMARY OF MY METHODOLOGY IN TUTORING ENGLISH SKILLS. I locate any areas of weakness in the understanding and use of grammar, syntax (including punctuation) and paragraph building. I use existing materials or ones that I create to have the student gain more practice in such areas. I explain clearly the rules or processes for successful answers, and write these down for the student to consult during practice. I have found that the key to success in comprehension questions lies in underlining in the passages. A SUMMARY OF MY METHODOLOGY FOR WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS Good writing or speaking consists of correct grammar and syntax, and skillful creation and ordering of paragraphs. These are the basic English skills. The choice of content and words gives flavor to the text. If a student needs help in developing an outline, I ask questions to help focusing on the task,and guide the process. Shown a draft, I nicely suggest improvements, with explanations where appropriate. The student may use the improved draft as a final text or may discuss alterations with me. A SUMMARY OF MY METHODOLOGY FOR TUTORING SOCIAL STUDIES, LITERATURE, AND SCIENCE I guide the student in reviewing key points in a lesson or group of lessons and possibly creating an outline of them, and in systematically tackling any assignments, marking key words in the assignment and understanding what is being required, locating relevant sections of any texts involved and understanding a text and its relation to an assigned task, and formulating and composing written responses, and editing and/or, through imaging or being given questions, expanding them

About

My name is Eli Weissman, and I may be the ideal tutor for you! Before I tell you my academic credentials and sat/act review philosophy, I think, it is important that you know how I interface with students. Let me first talk about Monique. Shortly after I started with Monique, she wrote: Yeah, he is really good! He can tell what my weak points are and we work from the weak points out to the strong points so I understand the work a lot more! Now that she has completed her math course work for this term, she wrote: Thank you for tutoring me! I got a really good grade in my math class which I definitely would not have got without your help. I got an A. That is the best math grade I have ever gotten. The following is a note from Joanna. Her son is a student at Ramapo College. "I am pleased to recommend Eli Weissman to prospective students that need a top-notch math tutor. Eli tutored my son this last semester with great results. I only wish we had found him years ago! Mr. Weissman is reliable and very knowledgeable. He is committed to helping the student and instills confidence in them, which is sometimes half the battle. Eli's fee is quite reasonable. and he is worth much more. I am grateful to Eli for helping my son get through a difficult course. If only he tutored all subjects!" The following is a note that I received from the mother a student who I was student who was preparing for the May SAT test: "Eli Weissman tutored my son, Luke, on math SAST prep for several weeks. Luke had already spent a considerable amount of time working with another math tutor who had to stop tutoring for another job opportunity. I had two concerns: first, that a new tutor would be able hit the ground running since the SAT was in just a few weeks. Second, since Luke had already established a relationship with the previous tutor, that he would bond with someone new and adapt to a different teaching style. Both concerns were put to rest after the first session. Eli certainly hit the ground running and was able to quickly identify Luke's weak areas. In addition, Luke took to Eli almost immediately, which contributed to his engagement in the sessions and willingness to do the work. Eli is a skilled, experienced and knowledgeable math tutor who works well with students. I would definitely recommend his services." Last but certainly not least is the note I received from Lori regarding my work in tutoring her son for the ACT exam. "I wanted to give you the results from Jordan's ACT exam. He scored a 24 which is 1 point less than the highest math score. He said the math section was hard and ran out of time and had to guess at the end." Another note from Analisa who I tutored for the high school admissions test. "Thanks for all the preparation you have given me for my test tomorrow. I have gained a lot of confidence and mathematical skills from our sessions." My academic credentials and philosophy speak for themselves. I recently received my Ph.D. from Capella University. I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in mathematics and a master's degree in computer technology in education. I tutor students in math (pre-algebra, algebra I and II, geometry, and general math, pre-calculus, calculus), and test prep (GED, GRE, SHSAT, SAT, ISEE). In general, I favor a "hands-on" approach to teaching that involves a lot of interaction between the tutor and student, and concrete experiences in addition to worksheets. However, my specific methods vary according to the subject being taught and the learning style of the student. My tutoring style is engaging and fun. I take the time to get to know each student, both personally and academically. This allows me not only to focus on the appropriate subject matter but to customize my teaching style to the individual needs of the student. Every student is an individual with a different learning style, so it is my duty and my privilege to ensure that each student gets a uniquely customized experience. I am comfortable in any setting, be it a library, starbucks, or even your own home. I am fully willing to make house calls. Please feel free to contact me through this website with any questions. I will respond to all emails within two hours of receiving them as I get emails straight to my phone (responses will almost always be immediate, however if I am with a student, you will have to wait until my session ends). I have an SAT/ACT/ISEE/GRE educational philosophy that calls for working from weakness towards strength. I will analyze your child's current situation. I will determine his/her weaknesses and strengths. I will concentrate on improving the weaknesses to make them strengths along with enhancing the strong subjects. I do real education along with practice tests. I am available to start immediately. I can tutor any afternoon, evening or on the weekend. I am certified by the state of New Jersey to teach mathematics. My rate is $60/hr. Regards, Eli J. Weissman, Ph.D.
