I have a BA in English and Latin from New York University, an MA in English and Remedial Education from Columbia University and a New York State and New York City teaching license. For over three decades, I have been teaching and tutoring students of all ages and all levels of English competence, including non-English speakers.
My specialties are reading fluency and comprehension, vocabulary enhancement, and English as a second language. I also teach my students how to write clearly, concisely, and coherently. I have found over the years that inadequate writing skills are often just as much an obstacle to success as poor reading skills. I also include study and organizational skills in my teaching, since my goal is for my students to become independent learners.
I use interactive computer programs, which give practice in the skills I teach. These programs help me pinpoint problem areas, monitor progress, and make lessons both rigorous and enjoyable.
When you sign up for lessons with me, you get not only a tutor, but a mentor as well. Your success is just as important to me as it is to you.
