I am equally equipped to address the needs of children as I am at meeting the requirements of adults.
Having taught grades K to 5 in the New York City public schools and tutored in the Bronx for more than 5 years, I am proficient in all core elementary school subjects. I have also conducted professional development training for educators and other professionals, designed online course-ware and instructed in online, face-to-face and hybrid environments.
My longstanding interest in education is as much a passion as it is a profession. I am from a family of educators and have been tutoring since I was 9. Upon leaving the United States Army where I conducted training exercises for both civilian and military personnel, I studied childhood education at Lehman College. I hold a Bachelor of Science
in Public Administration from Upper Iowa University and a graduate degree in Educational Technology from Boise State University.
I have been tutoring in New Jersey for more than 5 years and developed early intervention programs including math
workbooks and online activities. I view facilitating learner-centered education as a priority. I believe the ability to guide learners in finding their own impetus for motivation is an important goal and one I will continue to pursue and assist others in pursuing. It is also my aim to provide a stimulating, enjoyable, yet challenging learning environment infused with emergent technologies.
I am also keenly aware of how to engage culturally and economically diverse groups of learners. I understand just how important education is to uplifting all members of our society. Therefore, I believe my passion for teaching and genuine desire to help others create knowledge are elements that become assets for those I tutor.
My goal at this juncture is to continue to acquire new knowledge to improve the quality and depth of educational environments by employing researched based instructional technology strategies and skills, particularly in the implementation of visual literacy, technology integration and instructional techniques.
I look forward to assisting you in your effort to improve your knowledge and skills. Thanks.
