I am most passionate about teaching Persian
learners but I am also a licensed (Massachusetts) special education teacher of students with moderate disabilities. I currently work to support students in high school in different subjects: mathematics
, and science
. I am earning my masters in Education and hold a masters in Arts in English from Tufts University. My area of expertise is working with students with disabilities on preparing for high school and community college courses, especially English courses.
Previously I worked for two years as a tutor at a high school in Boston. As a full-time tutor at a small charter high school in Roxbury, I gained invaluable experience in planning and teaching (remedial to advanced) skills to students of different grade levels. In my second year, I was selected as a Lead Tutor to help train first-year tutors. My daily responsibilities involved providing instruction in math
, literacy, MCAS preparation, creative writing
and visual arts. I received my MA from the English department at Tufts University. My departure from teaching full-time at the high school level is my motivation for this new venture, and I hope the WyzAnt program helps me connect with engaged families and students.
Though my expertise lies in the humanities, the study of literature
in particular (scores of 5 on the AP Literature
and Language tests) I'm very comfortable teaching up to tenth-grade math. Other tutors may rely on teachers and/or parents to assign homework or offer direction, but my experience as an educator has prepared me to plan individualized curricula. Nevertheless, I value the connections among classwork, tests, grades, and supplementary instruction, and I strive to help students develop and succeed in their academic interests.
