I am a NYS certified early childhood and childhood educator (Birth-grade 6). I have my M.S.Ed from Bank Street College of Education, a prominent progressive education institution in New York City. I have worked in classrooms from pre-k through 5th grade in both independent and public schools. I have been tutoring private clients outside of the classroom setting for several years, and have found tutoring to be the most effective and fulfilling teaching experience in my time as an educator. It is for this reason that I decided to make private tutoring a full time pursuit!
My approach is to take full advantage of the 1:1 ratio by getting to know my students’ interests, personal development, special needs, and academic goals. I then design a custom curriculum that engages each student's curiosities and offers hands-on, meaningful learning experiences. In this way, I am able to meet each student where they are academically and provide both enrichment and support. This personalized approach allows students to remain confident and engaged in the curriculum both at home and at school. I am able to adapt to the modes of learning my students are accustomed to due to the wide variety of school settings I have taught in. My clients have ranged in age from 4-12 from a variety of school backgrounds, with a wide range of goals. I am also available for homework help, and test prep.
I look forward to hearing from you about your child, their academic goals and needs, as well as how I might help!
