I'm a Bilingual Math and Spanish teacher/tutor with a B.A. from Yale University. I currently teach and tutor at The Beekman School, a private high school in Manhattan (subjects: Algebra, Geometry, and Spanish I - IV).

I have over 5 years of experience teaching Math -- with an emphasis on Pre-Algebra, Algebra and Geometry -- and Spanish, at all levels. I also assist in preparing students for standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, SHSAT, the Regents Exams, and New York State Tests. I have native fluency in Spanish, and I've studied Spanish grammar, usage, and literature at the college level (a copy of my Yale transcript is available upon request).

I currently teach at The Beekman School, a private high school in Manhattan, and I tutor students of various ages and schools such as The Allen-Stevenson School, Spence, Chapin, Horace Mann, Wagner, Loyola, and Columbia University. I find tutoring to be especially rewarding because of the personal attention I can give each student, and also because I can cater the lessons -- the pace, structure, materials, etc. -- to each student's unique needs.

I have excellent references, available upon request. I have a sliding rate which depends on the location, duration, and frequency of the sessions, as well as the needs of the student. I do my best to accommodate all students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have extensive experience tutoring K - 6th graders, as well as references. While I was at Yale, I volunteered as a tutor at a local public elementary school, and felt extremely rewarded from it. I understand how crucial it is for children to get the attention and instruction they need in these years if they are to have a successful academic experience later in life.

Microsoft Project

I took a 3 day course for MS Project as part of my training to be a Technical Project Manager at AOL and relied on it heavily when I had that job. I think it's an extremely useful tool that is often underutilized.

Special Needs

I have over 4 years of working with special needs students, as a teacher and as a tutor, at The Beekman School and also as a private tutor. My students have had a variety of special needs, including dyslexia, ADD, and autism. I'd be happy to provide references from parents of students I've worked with that have had special needs.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience helping students improve their study skills and organization. In high school I learned the skills necessary to graduate with a 4.0 grade point average and then continued on to Yale University, where I graduated with a G.P.A. of 3.6, all while maintaining a busy work schedule and being an active member of the music and dance community. I'm currently on staff as a tutor at The Beekman School, where I help my students learn and apply study skills that match their particular learning style.
