I'm a 5th grade teacher in NYC who happens to also be an award-winning filmmaker. I believe that we can make significant leaps in reading and math and have fun in the process.
I've worked with children across subject areas and continents, from Uganda, Nicaragua, Australia, to Haiti. I've spent several years teaching math and ELA in middle schools, several more as a K-6 teacher, and three as a technology staff developer across all schools in the NYC Department of Education.
I believe all students should, and certainly can be prepared and thus excel in both their ELA and math state exams, both of which are coming up on the calendar. New York State has set higher learning standards for all students and to reach these standards, the ELA test challenges students to demonstrate their ability to listen attentively, read a variety of materials, and respond in writing to literary and informational passages.
While I believe in hard work, the grit it takes to break through the hard parts, the struggles, and the plateaus, my tutor sessions have always been fun. Can you imagine fun tutor sessions? It happens.
I look forward to connecting!
