I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm to find ways to match your learning style with the material you need to know. I use innovative techniques which include music, movement and technology to help motivate and inspire students. I believe learning should be a positive experience that includes your interests.

In addition to teaching, I have traveled around the world and used my "book knowledge" in many exciting real-world adventures which include various international development projects related to education quality improvement in schools and coastal management in South East Asia.

I've helped many students prepare for standardized tests including GED, TEAS, SAT, ACT and GREs.

I enjoy working one on one to help students learn in a way that is meaningful for them.

I have taught many students who range in age from 9 to adult. I am certified to teach in both Connecticut and New York States in Biology and French and I also like tutoring math.

I believe education is a the key to 21 century success.

ACT Math

I am considered a highly qualified teacher in Middle School and High School Math subjects, including Algebra and Geometry. I graduated with a BA in Biology and had to study Math at a higher level in order to achieve that degree. I successfully completed Calculus and took Differential Equations and Statistics in College. I teach Middle School and High School Math Classes and have data to show that 100% of students who study with me demonstrate positive academic growth.

ACT Reading

I read French Literature for my Masters Degree and covered topics related to grammar, comprehension and explication of text using literary devices in both English and French. I enjoy a wide range of literature and can help students understand more by providing background and pointing out mechanisms the author uses to create effects.
