I have test taking expertise which I've use to help students successfully sit for a variety of exams, such as the Independent Schools Education Exam, other specialized schools entrance exams, New York City Department Education citywide assessment exams, graduate school coursework exams, and professional careers qualification exams. As a former NYC Department of Education Special Education Tutorial Teaching teacher, Crisis Intervention Teacher, and Cooperative Team Teacher, I have helped to successfully facilitate the educational development of special needs and at risk students. These positions have afforded me the opportunity to develop and expand the skills that are critical for working with special needs and at risk students. In addition to these experiences, my graduate education coursework has helped me to learn a variety of practical strategies for working with special needs and at risk students.
