I was the lead teacher for the English Department at Jefferson Middle School in Arlington, VA for eight years,
My goal as a teacher is to develop a love of learning by using an array of resources to engage students. I have taught adults and students in grades K-12 in urban public schools in New York, DC, Maryland and Virginia. I believe that children need many ways to build their understanding of the world and I encourage exploration through play, art, music, movement, dialogue and anything that the children bring to the table. I have a holistic view of learning that grows and changes depending on the students.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have an MA in elementary education from Teachers College, Columbia University. I have taught and tutored students in elementary school for over 10 years. I taught math and reading in New York for 8 years.
