I look forward to working with students of all ages! I have an elementary teaching degree as well as permanent NYS Spanish certification. I taught Spanish in the Dryden Middle School and High School for 13 years. I successfully taught Regents level Spanish and prepared students for the Spanish CLEP exam that allowed several individuals to receive college credit prior to entering a university.

I eventually left the Dryden school district in order to travel. During this time away from upstate NY, I was fortunate to spend some time in Durham, North Carolina where I taught English as a Second Language to high school students from a variety of different countries.

I am passionate about reading and writing in both English and Spanish. I realize that not all humans share my passion. However, my former students consistently praised me for my unique approach to teaching/learning. I have the ability to compassionately guide individuals toward their learning goal(s) while facilitating confidence in the subject area.

In addition to reading and writing, I also have an interest in many other subject areas. I have experience tutoring all subject areas at the elementary level.

My current work schedule allows for the flexibility to meet with students who desire to enhance their performance in one or more subject areas. I will be grateful to accompany students on their journey toward learning and growing!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have permanent K-6 certification in NYS. I am certified to teach all subject areas as well as Spanish education at this level. One of my strengths as an educator has always been to work with students who can be successful if exposed to an alternative, creative way in which to grasp concepts. I enjoy seeking out unique approaches to teaching/learning.

I have confidence in facilitating growth in Math, Science, Reading, Writing, Spelling, History and Music at this level.


I have taught ESL at elementary school level, the high school level and the college level. I was the primary ESL teacher in an inner city school in Durham, NC. Many of my former students are currently studying in a university.

I have a masters degree in teaching other languages; therefore, I have in depth knowledge of second language acquisition, linguistics and I have a wide variety of teaching tools to assist with reading, writing and speaking.
