As an experienced educator at the middle / high school level, I have successful engagements with the emphasis placed on goal setting, prioritizing and event management. These are skills I use personally and professionally. I am equally comfortable teaching one-on-one as well as in the group setting. Tutoring location is flexible.

I have worked as a substitute teacher in the Wantagh School District for over five years teaching the following subjects: physical science, living environment, Ita...
Reviews
I was extremely happy with Mona her tutoring. She was extremely prepared and was ready to teach the lesson. She specifically valued our time and I was really grateful for that. She adjusted her teaching style to my son?s extreme shyness. Thank you Mona!

Mona is a very responsive tutor. Flexible with the scheduling and promptly answers any questions you may have. She helped my son navigate and prepare for the ELA portion of the SAT exam. She is very understanding and encouraging with students who have IEP?s in place. Highly recommend!
- Elaine T. from Glenmoore, PA
My daughter had her first lesson with Mona and raved about how she was great and knew her stuff. After just one lesson, she is feeling more confident about the exam.

I reached out to Mona because my daughter had begun to struggle with the material in her Honors Chemistry class. My daughter felt that half way through her first tutoring session with Mona things began to click. Her confidence level was high taking her next quiz the following day, and with good reason, 100% on the quiz. The anticipation is that Mona will be helping out with Algebra coursework as well. I expect similar improvement. Patience, thoroughness, and genuine caring, all you can ask for in a tutor. No wonder her ratings are through the roof.

As a parent you hope you can find the right tutor. My daughter started late and we only had 10 days to work with. I think we had 6 lessons, and our tutor was well prepared and organized and gave my daughter practice sheets in which Mona reviewed before the lesson. She also gave my daughter tools to prepare her for the test.

My son saw how great a tutor Mona was after he completed his first lesson with her, but as a parent I got the feeling Mona was the right choice long before the first lesson when prior to the first lesson Mona sent my son some ACT science problems to complete so she could assess his strengths and weaknesses and so that she could be ready to tackle his challenges during the first session. Even more impressive was her quick response/follow-up time; her efforts to really get a feel for my son's current status with the subject (books in use, study style, time allotted to studying, etc.) and his "hopes and dreams." I say this because it is one thing for a teacher to go through the mechanics of teaching but when a teacher allows the focus point of their efforts to be the "hopes, dreams and goals" of the student then I believe great things are possible. I have already scheduled five more sessions with Mona and am feeling pretty good about my son's chances as he tackles the ACT one more time. Grateful Dad,

She sees the area of target immediately Mona is consistent and expects the same in return but she is able to pace accordingly to connect with the individual she is working with. Best Choice!!!
- Salli C. from Brooklyn, NY
I learned today about quadrants, systems of equation , correlations and all the graph problems...in the calculator section..and in last lesson I learned more problems in the non calculator session...
- Rabita A. from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Cassie loved her step-by-step approach! She felt more confident already! So glad we?ve found a great tutor to get through this very important year! So thankful!

Mona was a patient, altruistic and knowledgeable tutor, whose main goal was for me to succeed. In the beginning of August, I was getting nervous for my exams coming up, but not to fret, Mona was always reassuring; she went on to send me reviews for the concepts we had went over and proved to me that I had come so far in this, and not to give up. In only two months of tutoring, we had went through the entirety of the Algebra II curriculum. She put in several hours of work to my specific needs, and for that she was amazing. Even after I achieved great scores on my exams, she helped me with my AP work for statistics. She would constantly go out of her way for my success; no matter if it be 10:30 at night, or 6 in the morning. I would definitely recommend Mona to anyone looking for an affordable tutor with a vast knowledge on several subjects!
- Brad L. from Trumbull, CT
I highly recommend Ms. Mona for AP US History. Ms. Mona prepares herself very thoroughly before the class. I am sure any child who studies with Ms. Mona will excel. Ms. Mona also helps to give a direction to a student who is not able to find a path by themselves. It was a pleasure having my daughter being taught by Ms. Mona.
- Anu G. from Fullerton, CA
Mona has been working with my daughter in Math and English Lit. We are very happy with the plan of action Mona has mapped out for improvement in these areas. We plan to continue to use Mona! We highly recommend.
- DAnielle W. from Altoona, WI
Mona taught my son some best practices on how to prepare and take the SAT reading comprehension portion of the test and will be doing the same for math. She has a knack for assessing where the student is and where they need to focus their efforts. She uses real world examples to convey her message, which helps my son understand what she is teaching.
- Kendall W. from Mckinney, TX
AP Biology. She sent some review questions for my son to help him prepare for the exam. She was knowledgeable and straightforward. Would recommend her. She was really good.
- Supriya S. from Roanoke, TX
My daughter needed help with prepping for her ACT in the math section, this was the first lesson but my daughter felt it was real productive and seems to have a better grasp on the material they covered. She?s looking forward to her next lesson with Mona.
- Leo H. from Portland, TN
Mona was a great tutor! She helped me go through the non calc and the calc math section of the SAT as I was having trouble. She identified my weaknesses and worked to overcome those by giving me different strategies! Would recommend her as a tutor for anyone having trouble with math!
- Meghana S. from Northville, MI
Mona was such a huge help and the classes we had together were very productive and I learned so much! She?s so patient and makes sure that you understand the material but never makes you feel bad. She?s a fantastic teacher!
- Amruta P. from South Grafton, MA
Mona had greatly helped my daughter to prepare for the SAT. Mona is a caring, no nonsense teacher that connected instantly with my Angelina. Mona gave my little girl confidence in herself. Mona is a very respectable, sincere woman who is a blessing to our family. Mona gave Angie assignments for the next lesson with the insistence to text her if Angie had any problems before the next lesson. Highly recommended!!!
- Angelina G. from Levittown, NY
Mona is helping my daughter with SAT prep for Language arts and Math questions. She was able to fully understand how to address the questions work thru the problem choices.
- John H. from Freeport, NY
Mona is great at what she does. She is a great learner and will explain things in a way that will help you understand. I will just say History was not my favorite subject but Mona really opened my eyes to new things. I would recommend her to everyone!
