I am a teacher with 12 years of experience in NJ schools. I have taught various sections of high school mathematics, including Advanced Math I and II; I have also taught Science in middle school. Of the twelve years as a school teacher, I taught nine in a private college prep school for children with learning disabilities.

I have passed the Praxis Mathematics certification exams with a Certificate of Excellence (top 15%) and hold two NJ teacher's certificates. In 1997, I was awarded the Geraldine R. Dodge Fellowship Award for alternate route teachers.

I have been tutoring for SAT, ACT, and GRE for many years. Besides an advanced degree in Science (summa cum laude), I have an M.F.A. in creative writing, so I can teach both math and verbal sections of SAT, ACT, GRE, and other standardized tests. My teaching is always focused on the individual student and his/her specific learning needs. I would be especially interested in a tutoring opportunity that involves academic/study skills advising and coaching.

Lately, I have been successfully teaching via Skype, which proves to be an exceptional teaching tool. It allows me to tutor students from all states and all walks of life. Meet me once and you will see that I am YOUR teacher!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Russian

I am a Russian writer, poet, translator, and editor. I authored 8 books of poetry in Russian. I am also an editor of the Storony Sveta literary journal (in Russian), as well as the English language version of the journal, Cardinal Points. The latter is focused on Russian culture.

I have taught Russian History at NYU, Russian Language and Russian Civilization at Montclair State University, as well as classes in Russian language at a private high school in NJ (Barnstable Academy). I am currently tutoring several students in Russian language.
