I am an experienced teacher with dual New Jersey Certification (regular and special education). I have taught all age groups in the classroom, from pre-K to 12th grade. I presently teach homebound students for a local school district.
I have also tutored for some years through school districts. I have worked with a range of students with diverse needs, including first graders needing help with reading, a third grader struggling with basic math concepts, a middle school student needing to develop his essay skills and high school students preparing for their English Language SATs. I always establish a good working relationship with my students and ensure through careful choice of learning materials and positive reinforcement that they will succeed.
I believe that learning should be an exciting experience, and find that my enthusiasm is often contagious. I believe that "education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire"; and I have successfully lit many students' fires!
