Gail Kleiner brings over 30 years of teaching experience to private tutoring. She has taught in New York City public schools and in the Westchester suburbs. She has successfully tutored students in reading, writing, history and other social science subjects. Gail brings a wealth of knowledge and great compassion to her individualized tutoring work.
“Nothing brings me more satisfaction than getting to know students on an individual basis and helping them strengthen their skills and produce work they are proud of and delighted by.”
Gail is passionate about working with all types of students—those who excel and strive to reach even greater heights and those that struggle to keep up with the pace and quantity of work assigned. She works with students to learn how to learn so they can apply the skills practiced during tutoring sessions to their independent work. She has successfully helped students write analytic and personal essays for English, research papers on a range of topics for social studies and history classes as well as prepare for exams in these same subjects. Gail also enjoys working with students to develop literacy skills more broadly so they can feel stronger and participate more fully in all of their classwork.
Gail’s familiarity with school and teacher expectations allows her to guide students to produce high quality work that will satisfy these expectations while ensuring that they maintain and develop their own ideas and perspectives. Gail’s students describe feeling empowered to develop and clarify their own ideas and to powerfully and coherently express them. After recently working with a student on a lengthy, challenging research paper, the student expressed surprise and delight at seeing how the incremental process of approaching the task now became doable.
Parents and students alike appreciate Gail’s friendly demeanor, level of energy and expertise and her ability to help students realize their potential.
From her first day in the classroom, Gail knew that working with young people was her calling. She continues to cherish time spent with her students and is honored to help them develop confidence and new skills. She values the bonds that develop as teacher and student sit side-by-side, accepting and overcoming challenges together.
