I assess the student's level of mastery by listening to parents, communicating with the student (in whatever appropriate way needed) and then doing some basic testing.

I have taught Composition courses at the college-level and have assigned, proofread, and graded thousands of essays in all of the courses I've taught in the humanities. My teaching style is real. It's genuine. College students walk away from my classes saying, "Thanks for keeping it real." I have no pretenses as I view the learning process as a crucial humans exchange between two or more people. I'm very egalitarian in my approach, being open to learn from my students. Finally, I have caring pedagogy, in that I care about my students and usually am in touch with them well after the teaching experience. I have taught elementary, middle school , high school, college, and students in adult education courses. I have taught in rural, suburban, and urban settings for both private and public institutions. I have tutored my own children (e.g. Latin, Art, Guitar) and middle and high school

My teaching style places emphasis on discussion and debate and allowing the students reach the needed conclusions as much as possible by themeselves. I believe that studying by rote and memorization does not really contribute to the student's ovarall ability to learn how to think and how to analyze new material. I am currently teaching a class to 13 year olds at Beth Sinai school. Last year I tutored one on one at the Bertlitz School in Palo Alto; since 2007 I have also tutored one on one on a private basis at home. Prior to that I also taught college level history courses while finishing my MA degree. I have taught and tutored a variety of subjects from Ethics, to World history, US History & African History; Hebrew; Writing: and Current affairs.

For math, I would explain the mechanics and techniques of how to get the answer. I want to make sure the student understands fully so I would also be asking the student questions just to ensure he or she knows the material well. For English, I would focus on practicing and discussion. Since it is a langauge, I focus more on practicality. I would also talk to the student and discuss whatever he is having trouble with so that I can give him or her tips to improve. I have usually insisted in helping people who have struggled in English and Math. I would do my best to explain the material until the student would have a solid understanding of the material. I have helped so many international students in English. As for math, I would insist on helping friends and anyone who is wishing to need help.
