I have over 17 years of experience working in New York City Schools. My experience is primarily in teaching students from kindergarten to fifth grade. Most of whom were English Language Learners (ESL/TESOL). Many of the students I have worked with, were from Ibero America but since NYC is a place that draws people from all through the world, I have taught students from Spain, Portugal, Africa, India, Eastern Europe and Asia.

As a reading teacher, I was certified in the Orton-Gillingham Approach to reading instruction. The Orton-Gillingham Approach,is language-based, multisensory, structured, sequential, cumulative, cognitive, and flexible. It is an intensive, sequential phonics-based system that teaches the basics of word formation before whole meanings. This approach tends works well with children that have special needs.

As a mother of two I know all too well the stresses and commitments we shoulder to insure that our children are successful in school and in life. As an educator experienced in one on one instruction, I focus on helping students progress through an individualized lesson plans. By working with students in this manner, they are able to overcome their particular challenges, while instilling a positive nurturing environment.
