I attended MGH Institute of Health Professions where I received a Masters of Science in Communication Disorders. During graduate school I worked at our in-house clinic which specialized in both written and spoken language disorders. I therefore have experience teaching phonetics, reading and writing.

I have a Bachelors degree in Biomedical engineering as well and have worked in that field. I am proficient in all levels of mathematics, and science subjects. I personally enjoy biology and physics, as well as all math concepts.

Given my unique background of engineering combined with expertise in breaking down and teaching skills to children who require a very structured approach, I believe that I am an incredibly effective teacher. Beyond that, I also enjoy helping people learn and find it to be very rewarding.
