I have tutored several students for the HSPT during the last six years as an independent tutor with a tutoring agency. I have worked with kids from fifth grade through eleventh grade, and I have helped students to feel more at ease and improve their score if they are retaking the test. I work with each student on practice exercises from test preparation books to help build their skills in reading comprehension, math, and vocabulary. I also have them take timed practice tests so that they will get accustomed to the test-taking environment. I patiently work with each student to find the teaching method that works best for the individual.
I have been playing drums for about 17 years and percussion for about 13 years. I play drum set, congas, timbales, and bata drums. I have also studied classical piano and guitar, but drums are my passion. I have a Master of Music degree in Afro-Latin Music. I am a drum instructor for the Boys and Girls Club Arts Academy, and I teach drums and percussion privately. Because I love learning and growing as a musician and person, I still take lessons on drum set (with world-renown drummer Chris Coleman) and percussion (with legendary Cuban drummer, singer, and dancer Lazaro Galarraga). With each student I work with, my experience, patience, adaptability, and creativity allow me to teach in a manner that best suits each student's needs.
I have tutored dozens of students for the ISEE during the last six years as an independent tutor with a tutoring agency. I have worked with kids from fifth grade through eleventh grade, and I have helped students to feel more at ease and improve their score if they are retaking the test. I am very familiar with the format and scoring system of the test. I have an ISEE teacher's guide that goes over every skill needed for the test, and I can recommend additional study materials.
I have a lot of experience tutoring for test preparation. I have a SAT manual that I can use for our sessions, and I can also recommend more material that can be purchased online or at a bookstore for additional practice.

I was on swim team in high school and college. I have been a lifeguard and have taught swimming lessons since 2001. I am certified in First Aid, CPR, and I am an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). For swimming lessons, I am in the water with the child so that I can demonstrate, watch their stroke underwater, and provide the highest level of safety and comfort.
