I am a patient and dynamic educator with 10+ years of experience teaching and tutoring students of all ages. I am a New York State dually certified teacher with a Master’s degree in childhood and special education. I have a strong liberal arts background and am well-versed in many subject areas.
I taught in Westchester County public schools for 4 years and found that many students' needs were not being adequately met in the classroom. The typical classroom environment was often unable to accommodate all students' abilities and learning styles, so I decided to start a tutoring and coaching service that focuses on meeting the diverse needs and goals of 21st century students and families.
The two sets of skills that I consider essential for students' future success are critical thinking and problem solving. Therefore I promote, model, and teach these important skill sets so that students are equipped with high-order thinking skills in order to solve nuanced and complex problems.
All students have different needs, abilities, and goals; as such, I tailor each learning plan and session accordingly. My background as a special educator allows me to differentiate lessons and come up with the most useful learning strategies for each individual.
As a passionate and lifelong learner myself, I strive to make learning fun, enjoyable, and practical for all students!
