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.

Dyslexia

I am qualified to teach people with dyslexia because I completed the following courses at Teachers College, Columbia University: Psychology of Reading Difficulties and Practice in Diagnosing Reading Difficulties. I also have many years experience teaching in this field in the King David school system in Johannesburg, South Africa. In addition, I have taught children with dyslexia in my private practice both in America and in South Africa.
