I have been teaching for 6+ years and am certified in both Middle School English and Elementary Education. I work well with advanced and struggling learners.

My current students range from elementary to high school students in the Plainsboro and Princeton area. I receive great feedback from parents, as I am consistently able to assist my students in drastically improving their grades! I am proud of these results and work hard to design lessons to meet individual needs and goals. I build upon my students' strengths and am flexible in my teaching to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of each lesson.

I believe in modeling strategies and challenging students through appropriate questioning, engaging discussions and scaffolding of concepts.

I have multiple teaching certifications as well as a Master's degree in teaching. I am currently working on a second Master's degree in English as I am constantly looking for ways to become a more knowledgeable educator!

In addition to my public school teaching experience, I have tutored students in grades K-12 in English/language arts.

I specialize in elementary K-5 math/reading and middle school English specifically. I also tutor high school students in English and writing.

I work to challenge and guide my students to success. I love to see my students smile when they realize they have gained control of their own learning and have the ability to tackle any concept they previously deemed as difficult or "too hard."

Elementary (K-6th)

Standard New Jersey Teaching Certificate, Master of Arts in Teaching Degree.

English

I have a Middle School English Language Arts Teaching Certificate, Grades 5-8.

Phonics

I have experience teaching language arts in kindergarten, first and second grade. I have successfully taught many struggling readers how to read by developing a solid foundation in phonics. My students have developed a strong understanding of phonemic awareness and how to dissect each sound within unknown words. I have taught my students how to tap out sounds, stretch words and identify unknown vowel sounds within words they do not know. To successfully teach phonics, I spend a lot of time on each vowel team and various blends and digraphs until my students become independent readers.

Public Speaking

My undergraduate degree was in Public and Mass Communication. I took numerous public speaking classes between 2003 and 2007. I mastered how to give effective, thorough and confident speeches to the public. I am well aware of how to organize a pre-planned speech, as well as how to manage and effectively deliver an impromptu speech. I am able to teach students how to organize speeches and develop successful techniques for developing supporting points, introductions and concluding statements. In addition, I have vast experience with debates as well; thus, I am able to properly prepare students with rebuttals and how to provide supporting evidence within persuasive speeches.

SAT Reading

I am a qualified SAT Reading Tutor.

Study Skills

Having multiple years of full time teaching experience, I have mastered the process of teaching students about efficiency and prioritizing. I work with students to develop strategies for each subject and assignment. Together with the student I develop ways to thoroughly cover and retain material. I also teach students about text features and how to properly utilize textbooks in order to efficiently find information. I work with students to strategize and organize more efficiently and effectively. I find that students succeed the more they understand what is expected of them and how they can reach their academic goals.
