I'm a recent Cornell graduate in Montvale, NJ and I love kids and I love to teach! So naturally, when looking for part-time work while I studied for my own exams (GREs) and applied to graduate programs, tutoring seemed to be the perfect choice for me. I have been happily working since May 2012!
Today, I work privately throughout the Bergen County area as well as nearby in Nanuet and other New York locations. I specialize in writing, geometry, and biology, as well as targeted PSAT and SAT preparation.
This summer, I will be available for the month of July. In September, I will be starting a psychology doctorate program at a small university in New York City, and will be available Mondays, Fridays, and weekends for tutoring.
Over the past year, I have helped over 20 students prepare for SATs, PSATs, Regents exams in "Living Environment" (biology), improve their writing skills, and more. In addition to my individual clients, I have worked at a learning center in Closter, NJ with 5th, 6th, and 11th grade students, and I have some experience with special needs students as well.
In my senior year at Cornell, I worked closely with troubled elementary kids as part of a clinical psychology field practicum course. I've also been heavily involved on campus as a peer adviser executive board member and peer counselor-in-training at our school's crisis hotline.
In high school, I also tutored remedial algebra (helping to raise one peer's grade from a D to an A) and worked at my high school writing center. As a senior, I was entrusted with leading a day-long workshop on college essay writing for our juniors.
I am happy to work with students of all ages. I love working with younger children, but can relate pretty well to younger and older teens, being so close in age to them myself. I think when it comes to kids, playtime is essential, but boundaries are important too. Whatever age group I am working with, I am committed to helping your child reach his or her educational goals as quickly as possible, and at providing high-quality tutoring and care in the comfort of your own home, at low cost to you.
Please contact me if you are interested in getting to know more about me, why I might be a good fit for you, and how to get your student the care and attention he or she deserves.
