I am a certified (NJ) teacher of English Language
Arts for grades K - 8. I currently teach in Newark at a charter school which ranks in the top 10% of schools in the state. I hold a degree in Theatre
Studies from Yale University and have over 25 years of experience in teaching young people to read, write and think critically.
I can help your child meet and exceed their potential with one-on-one instruction, where we can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, and together draft a study plan which will ensure their improved performance, both in the classroom and on the state examinations. I am also available to consult with parents on how they can assist their child on a day-to-day basis with homework, supplemental study plans and learning tools.
The new national Common Core Standards for English Language Arts
, which have recently been implemented, may seem intimidating to digest at first glance, but rest assured, these new standards will help your child become a better reader, writer and thinker. As your student and you gain a better understanding of what the expectations are for them with these new standards at each grade level, your child will be on their way to becoming a better student in all subjects, as well as a more attractive, competitive high school and college applicant.
I am willing to tutor students from grades 3 through 12. My scheduling for tutoring is flexible, especially for summer, with both day and evening times available. There is a 24-hour cancellation policy.
I look forward to discussing how I can work with you, to help your child find their comfort level with Language Arts and find the joy and power that comes with the mastery of the English language.
