I am a current masters of education student at Hunter College in NYC. My focus is on elementary education (grades 1-6) and my cumulative GPA is 3.985. I earned my undergraduate degree from Binghamton University in financial economics. I also hold a TEFL certificate, and I taught English abroad in Italy for a year to non-native English speakers. I taught both adults and children alike.

My aspiration to become a teacher stems from my desire to help others and make a difference. I think that education, in particular at the elementary school level, is a crucial component of future success. I welcome the opportunity to help students that need some extra time and focus to realize their academic goals. My studies at Hunter College have included exposure to math, science, and reading/writing curriculum for grades 1-6.

I am a warm, caring, approachable person who loves to make people feel at ease. I'm confident that I will be able to make measurable progress with any student I tutor. Please feel free to reach out if you'd like any additional information on me!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a part-time Masters of Education student at Hunter College in NYC, specializing in Elementary Education (Grades 1-6). During the course of my semesters at Hunter, I've studied curriculum in Math, Reading/Writing, and Science. I've studied Child Development, Education Psychology and Foundations of Education, all of which have provided me with strategies for effective teaching. I have performed several observations in local elementary schools and written research papers on my findings. I also hold a TOEFL certificate and taught English in Italy for a year (2006-2007). I privately tutored students of all ages while also working part-time in Italy's public elementary schools.
