I am a creative and energetic individual who has taught at all levels, including adults and people with learning disabilities. My commitment is to enable each student to reach his goals effectively. I bring patience and caring to each tutoring session.

I began my teaching career in New York City as an English teacher for grades 9-12 and later obtained a Master's Degree in Reading and worked with students to increase their reading levels. I have done private tutoring for homebound high school students and have facilitated SAT Verbal classes at a private academy.

For several years I ran my own practice for dyslexic students using Orton Dyslexia methods.
Since moving to Florida 4 years ago, I have taught Reading at Broward College to students who needed to pass the State Exit exam for college matriculation with an excellent passing rate.

I am also a volunteer tutor in Broward County in the Each One Teach One Reading program for adult literacy.
