As a TESOL and New York state certified teacher and mother of five, I have spent many years coaching and guiding students. I easily relate to and am familiar with the outlook and development of each age and stage of learning and have acquired the skills to motivate and inspire creativity and joy of learning. My enthusiasm and love for teaching is coupled with my training; I am caring, passionate and effective.

I have repeatedly worked closely with college-bound students, juniors and seniors, to craft personalized and powerful college essays that convey each student's unique strengths. I will guide your child through his or her college application process, reduce the stress and increase their success.

Through my formal and informal educational background, I am fluent in Hebrew, have affiliations with Hebrew Day Schools and have successfully worked with students on improving conversational and written Hebrew skills.

Having worked with children who have learning disabilities, I have strong experience in individualizing learning and skill acquisition. I treat each learner as a whole person of integrity who deserves respect and patience in each and every interaction. I love helping others and I love working with students of all ages! I can't wait to meet you and empower you in whatever support you are seeking.

College Counseling

As an English and Learning Specialist with dual Master's degrees in English and Education from Columbia University, I have assisted many students in all parts of the college application process. I love drawing out the best in each applicant to cooperatively craft, compose and perfect an individualized college essay. The learning takes place creatively and thoroughly, together. The result will be satisfying and you will feel proud of who you are and what you have accomplished. It's hard to believe it, but we can make this enjoyable!
