I began my teaching career next to the Mexican border, in Yuma, Arizona. As a first-year teacher there, I was presented with a classroom of twenty-four students. Out of the twenty-four, sixteen were Limited English Proficient (LEP), four were new to the country, and four were English Proficient. This was a challenge that provided me with the learning experience of a lifetime; leading to my fluency in the Spanish language, and a decision to pursue an advanced degree in English Language Learning. After five more years of experience as an ESL teacher and program coordinator in Las Vegas, I moved back to my home state of New Jersey. This is my ninth year as an ESL educator and tutor.
My approach to tutoring is extremely individualized in order to successfully meet each student’s needs. I provide customized tutoring where all students receive personalized programming, continuous monitoring and immediate feedback.
