I have been a professional educator and tutor for the past 15 years. Originally, I began by teaching SAT English and Math for the Princeton Review after graduating from George Washington in 1996 and started teaching high school English full-time in 2000 after receiving my Masters Degree in English Education from Vanderbilt University. My length and range of teaching experiences have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in both subject assimilation and standardized testing instruction. I feel extremely confident in my ability to help students feel more adept with both the content of and strategic approach to standardized tests. While the majority of my instruction has been focused on the SAT/ACT and GRE, I do have experience helping with the LSAT/SSAT and a tad bit of the GMAT. In addition, I have worked with over 100 students from various schools in the Miami area on writing their college essays and helping them with related components of the college application process.
I feel highly skilled in most core subject areas, particularly English but also Math up to pre-Calculus. My true loves are American Literature and any form of writing. Outside of academics, I am keenly fond of playing tennis, squash, golf, and travel.
As a former high school classroom teacher who has helped legions of former students and tutorees be accepted at top echelon universities, I am well versed in the college application process. Crafting an intelligent, insightful and individualized essay is second nature to me. I can further reinforce your sense of voice and help you articulate those aspects of your experience and goals you find most desirable.
I am a certified teacher in the state of Florida who passed the Praxis Math test with flying colors back when I was originally certified. I have a broad base of knowledge in all Math skills and categories. Moreover, I have extensive tutoring experience for Math standardized tests.
As a longtime English teacher and master of rhetorical strategies, I understand the nuances and difficulties associated with public speaking. This is an art, not a science, but with practice and a deeper understanding of the communications process, one can become a much more proficient public speaker. I strongly believe that a speaking coach can help alleviate a student's fears, reinforce their strengths and show them the path to successful public speaking. Please contact me if you would like to improve your skills.
I have taught these subjects for over 15 years and love building students confidence so they know the content and don't feel intimidated.
