As school districts across our area make decisions about their plans for the 2020-2021 school year, many of us are also making decisions about what learning models will work best for our children.

 

For some families this means partial or full-time distance learning, homeschooling or curated learning pods. Regardless of the path you choose, the reality is that this school year will look very different than years before. As we embark on an unfamiliar academic landscape, many families are looking for tutors and educational support services to bridge the gap.

 

To assist families in navigating these decisions, Rye & Rye Brook Moms and Sound Shore Moms together have created a Tutor Guide made up of local learning and education resources. We’ve included Learning Centers, Tutoring companies and Education Consultants who are all available to help your child (pre-k through college) excel during this unpredictable academic year.

Judy Gartman M.S.

 

In my practice, my goals are to motivate students from 4 years to college age and to use their strengths to further their learning. At the same time, I want to educate families and encourage their participation in their children’s education and give them a voice.  As a caring professional with over 40 year’s experience, I guide students with “a smile” using low-pressure strategies in the following areas:

  • Reading | Readiness and Remediation: challenge and enrichment, Orton Gillingham training/multi-sensory, comprehension, decoding/phonics, Learning Disabilities
  • Writing | Writing process: content area, word choice, creating chapter books
  • Learning Coach/Study Skills/Test Prep: organization/homework/scheduling, how to study for tests, NYS testing, ELA, Independent School Entrance Exam, TACH

My passion is making learning fun and accessible. Above all, I listen and respect my students and their parents. They know I’m here for them!
