I began my teaching career in 1997 as a third grade teacher. Since then I've taught students from Kindergarten age (as a basic skills teacher) through senior citizens (as an adult high school teacher). I seem to have found my niche at the middle school level as a special education teacher in Cedar Grove, where I've been since 2001. However, I have also been working with a number of students of differing ages and abilities for the past three years or so, as an independent contractor for a tutoring company. I have the experience to know right away if I can help your child. If your child needs a tutor with lots of patience, please let me help.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

January 27, 2012 marks my 15th anniversary as a professional educator. After acquiring my K-8 certification, I began my career teaching third grade. From there I went on to teach basic skills at the elementary level; eventually becoming certified to teach special education in 2004. I have served as a special education teacher in various grade levels ever since. Currently, I work with students in grades five through seven in a variety of subjects.

Writing

I can help your child improve his or her writing skills for a variety of different purposes and audiences, such as preparing for the Language Arts section of the NJ ASK. Utilizing a proven method to help children to structure and enhance their overall writing skills by incorporating such key ingredients as descriptive language, literary devices, vivid details,transitions, etc.,is of primary concern to me. This in in addition to helping them improve in the area of grammar and mechanics.
