I am a NYS certified Special Education Teacher with 15 years elementary school teaching experience and a Master's Degree in Education. I have 15 years experience in consultation, lesson planning, assessment and academic intervention. I have been a member of the Committee on Special Education, and am familiar with the special education referral, testing, and intervention process. I have worked with teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, therapists and parents to collaborate and implement appropriate educational strategies for many students.

I love teaching. It is always rewarding to hear of the many success stories and positive reports from parents. Continually I see that my students become more proficient in their academic skills and achieve success. As students become successful, the need for my tutoring services decrease over time. It is with some mixed emotions and a high degree of satisfaction that I say goodbye to former students who move on to new endeavors!

I provide tutoring services for students in grades K-8 in all subject areas and provide ESL services to children and adult students of all ages. I provide in-person tutoring services in my home. I have a classroom set up in my home complete with educational supplies, books, and reference materials. Parents are welcome to observe the tutoring session or to sit and relax in the living room waiting area during the session. In addition to the in-person tutoring services I provide for all students, I also provide online tutoring sessions for all students.

I will be happy to work with you and your child to create a learning program that will be appropriate for the individual learning style of your child. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you are not satisfied with your child's first session, your money will be refunded. For ESL adult students, the same guarantee applies to you.

Tutoring sessions are available by appointment and I request that you notify me 24 hours in advance if you need to change or cancel an appointment.

The main focus of each tutoring session is to help my students feel more confident as they achieve academic success and achieve their individualized and unique learning goals!

Reach for the stars!

Thank you for your interest, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
