My name is Elena Shanberg and I am a childhood elementary general and special education teacher in Brooklyn, NY. I have 2 full years of classroom and small group differentiated instruction teaching experience, as well as experience privately tutoring children and adults in english language arts.
I am NYC certified in Childhood Education grades 1-6, as well as being certified in Childhood education for students with disabilities (special education), grades 1-6.
My teaching style is very interactive. I believe that learning should be a fun experience for both teachers and students, alike. When I teach language, it is a very interactive experience, not a lecture. I teach in a conversational manner and use a lot of notes and flashcards and repetition to help my english language learners learn to the best of their ability. I also like incorporating my students' native language as much as possible in the lessons to help them compare and contrast difficult concepts of the english language by putting it into terms that they understand (their native language).
