I am a certified NJ Dept of Ed teacher. I know what students face academically and what parents face helping them. I have been blessed and fortunate enough to able to achieve a good academic background for my children and a strong home environment as well. But I know not every child is afforded this opportunity.

So it is my hope to give the students that I encounter the academic foundation that they need to succeed in life with a bit of the good home environment they will need to succeed as well.

I have played basketball as a young lady for years. My son is a current basketball player and I service as a fill in referee. This required some basic skills knowledge to pass a test to qualify.

I am an avid follower of basketball and love the sport tremendously.


I have worked for several industries throughout my professional career. I earned my bachelor's degree in Bus. Adm., cum laude, from Saint Peter's College in NJ.

Regardless of industry the bottom line is always the same: give the customers more than they expect, always provide value to the customer and never stop improving your processes and hopefully lowering your cost and while increasing your profits. While you must be specific for the industry all successful businesses share some common traits.

I also hold my master's degree from Saint Peter's College in accounting.

Career Development

During my nearly two decades of work experience, I've evaluated the client’s education, training, work history, interests, skills, and personality traits, and arranged for aptitude and achievement tests to assist the client in making career decisions.

I've also work with individuals to develop their job-search skills, and assisted clients in locating and applying for jobs. As well as providing support to persons experiencing job loss, job stress, or other career transition issues.


I was taught by skilled artisans in the kitchen that worked with limited ingredients but always made the best, healthy and most tasty meals ever. I watched their craft and perfected mine as I watched chair-side from a young girl.

Most of them worked and didn't measure; typically it was all done by taste, sight and feel. While I would love to have mastered this skill of eyeballing as I cook, I am quite good at it but not a master. However, I took what I observed and added measurements to those highly guarded cooking techniques.

I really enjoy cooking. The kitchen in the lifeline of the home. What you feed to your family is prepared there. That sustains them as they carry out their daily chores.

Elementary (K-6th)

I've earned my NJ Department of Education certificate in K-5 and ESL. As an NJ certified educator I've achieved the skills for competency in this areas. I also participate in continuing education class to maintain of the changes in education.

I have been employed with national tutoring/educational services for afterschool and Supplemental educational programs for K-6. While employed I've given diagnostic and assessment tests, focused on areas of deficiencies and incorporated proven techniques and technologies to bring the children to areas of efficiency.

Privately, I have tutored children in grades K-6 since 2002. I focuses all all subject areas. I've also worked with DD children where there goals incorporated life skills as well. This has extended to children with IEPs and focused on their professional, behavioral, physical and mental challenges in working toward individual goal.

I've enjoyed this work and challenges it has brought. The students I've been privileged to work with have benefited from my in-depth knowledge in education, my compassion and concern for their improvement and well being.


I have played football as a young lady with the big boys. They show me little mercy, they wouldn't tackle me. It enhanced my other athletic skills, esp running. My son is a current football player and I service as a fill in referee. This required some basic skills knowledge to pass a test to qualify.

I am an avid follower of football and love the sport tremendously. My son has been participating in organized football for the past nine years. Throughout the years while my son has participated I have been involved as a team parent.

I help set up concessions, uniform selections, oversaw the reconditioning of the equipment, recorded stats, been involved with practices and team transport.

I am familiar with the rules and regulations of organized football.


I use phonics as a method in my classroom for teaching reading and writing by developing especially young learners' phonemic awareness. I help them identify and manipulate English phonemes—in order to teach the correspondence between these sounds and the spelling patterns that represent them.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners.

I am a great public speaker, as I have won back to back orator contest by area schools and local civic organizations.

My purpose is often to motivate and challenge listeners to make changes. I maintain abreast of the latest political, social, educational and monetary news on which I can build my platform and speak intelligently and well informed on all areas of the subject at hand.

My most influential speeches were on the topics of women' rights, rights of the poor and the elderly. These were delivered with passion, vigor, zeal, belief and true heart felt compassion.

That people that fall into these categories have sought me out for help.

Social Studies

I tremendously enjoy this topic, presenting and teaching it factually. It covers a broad array of very interesting topics. At the elementary school level, social studies lessons I provided generally focus first on the local community and family.

By the time the students reach middle and high school, my curriculum becomes more discipline-based and content-specific: World History starting in Africa and moving forward, US History starting from exploration continuing to our 44th President, women's history, and civil rights through modern history, etc.

Social studies varies greatly as a subject between countries and curricula. Some courses taught borrow heavily from the social and political sciences, whereas others are created independently for schools.

Many social studies courses are interdisciplinary and draw upon various fields, including sociology but also political science, history, economics, religious studies, geography, psychology, anthropology, and civics.

I feel strongly that Social Studies provides a basic platform on to which you can build life long learners.

Study Skills

In my observation that best students use study skills/strategies. Some of my students do it so effortlessly they never notice. For those students that I encounter that have more difficulty, I try to make study skills a part of their daily routine.

I find that if a student knows the best practices for study skills, once learned they too can apply them effortlessly. Study Skills are generally critical to success in school and are considered essential for acquiring good grades as well as being very useful for learning throughout one's life.

There are an array of study skills, which I may use to tackle the process of organizing and taking in new information, retaining information, or dealing with assessments. They include mnemonics, effective reading and concentration techniques, as well as efficient notetaking. As well as some other techniques that work better for younger kids, teens are adult learners that I have employed at different times.

I've found that study skills are discrete techniques that can be learned, usually in a short time, and applied to all or most fields of study. Study Skills must therefore be distinguished from strategies that are specific to a particular field of study e.g. music or technology, and from abilities inherent in the student, such as aspects of intelligence or learning style.

Track & Field

I was a young "tracklete". I loved running. It was so freeing. You and nothing but track between the finish line. I crossed a lot of finish lines first.

This was after a lot of practice, discipline and positive reinforcements. The coaches that I had as a child and teen I still hold in high regard. Just as I sacrificed they too equally sacrificed. As an athlete your coaches share similar experiences joys, sorrows, wins and defeats.

As much as I enjoyed the 50M, 100M, 200M all the sprints, I also deeply enjoyed the relays.

In these events you had to learn to trust your teammates. Trust their dedication, ability, skill, desires, etc. You have to put your cares literally in the hands, via a baton, of another. It could be a scary task. But as you work together, grow together, learn together you form a friendship. The results of that friendship are trust and respect.

The influences that you have on one another given all the above factors is so important and productive. You want the best for not only yourself but equally for your teammates.

Now that I have aged, grown slower and jump less I just observe from the sidelines as my children and their friends have the same great experiences as I did while running.
