Hi potential student and parent!

First, I will tell you a little about my professional experience. I am a certified teacher, grades 7-12 and a certified administrator. I taught Spanish for 11 years at the high school level until I went on hiatus to care for my 2 young children. I have taught everything from freshman level through senior level, including honors courses. I have also tutored in lower Fairfield County and Westchester for over 10 years for students from various high schools (Wilton, New Canaan, Staples, Fairfield Prep, Greens Farms Academy, Riverdale to name a few). I do mostly remedial work with struggling students. I also work with students who have learning disabilities such as executive functioning and processing disorders. Many of the kids that I have worked with have a 504 plan or an IEP in place and they have enjoyed success after working with me. I also have experience with tutoring college students that need to fulfill their language requirement to graduate.

Now, a little about me personally. I am the mother of a 2 year old girl and 5 month old boy. I love all sports and play softball and volleyball. I love to travel and have been to many countries in Central and South America, Europe, Africa and the Middle East (see my pictures!). In my spare time, I also work locally as an EMT and have done so since I was an undergraduate in college.
