A qualified and experienced educator, I prepare students for the math, reading and writing portions of the SAT and ACT test. I have been a classroom teacher at all grade levels. I began my career as an elementary school teacher in Brooklyn where I received excellent training, I then went on to teach Middle School and High School Social Studies, and High School English as a Second Language.

I am skilled and experienced at tutoring SAT Math, SAT English, SAT Writing, MS Math, ACT, ESL for children and adults, Social Studies, Regents Test Prep, and helping students find their voice and become better writers. Because my experience spans various grade levels and different school settings, I have become very flexible with meeting the changing needs of my students. I am a warm and caring teacher with a sense of humor, which helps put students learning something new at ease.

One of the most effective ways I help my students is by presenting comprehensible material that stimulates different learning styles. As a one-to-one tutor, I assess how a student learns best and create lessons that cater to that students' learning modality. All my students experience success.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am NY State Certified in N-6 Education. Documentation is available on request.


I am NYS Certified in TESOL, certified in September 2009. I have experience in teaching and tutoring in ESL.


As an elementary teacher, I have used phonics with first and second graders as one of the tools in their repertoire of skills to use in decoding words as they're learning to read. Although phonics doesn't help every student, and beyond second/third grade it is largely ineffective, I believe for some youngsters who are auditory learners it can be immensely helpful. I have many successful phonics lessons and activities to use with students.


I have been proctoring and preparing students for Regents exams for years. Because I am an ESL teacher, the state requires ESL students be given the option of having a regents in their native language, therefore I have become versed in different Regents subjects. I have prepared students for Global and American History, English, Integrated Algebra and Spanish. I have been a proctor in many other Regents subjects.

SAT Math

I have significantly raised math SAT scores for all students.

Social Studies

As a former Social Studies teacher, I often prepare students for regents in American History and Global History. Although history can be daunting for some, I show students how to "chunk it down," and organize material which makes it easier to study and learn material.
