I love working with students and helping them fall in love with the topic at hand. I have experience working with emerging readers and young students just figuring out how to interpret the words, ideas and concepts all around them. I also love working with older students--high school and college aged--who are tackling a Shakespeare play or a complex writing assignment that is giving them a hard time.

Whenever I am working with students, from the earliest learners to adults, my sense of humor, patience, and theater background allow me to approach a familiar topic in a brand new way. I take great pride in helping students make connections and allowing them to approach the work differently. I love being a tutor and meeting students at their point of need and in the environment of their choice--at home, at their school, at a library, at Starbucks or over the phone- by working on a task, like learning a monologue for an audition, figuring out vowel sounds or writing a college essay my students and I share authentic learning experiences and grow with each session and meeting.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NYS licensed teacher in Early and Childhood Education (N-6th grade).
I have 5 years of teaching experience including a 2nd grade reading group, 3-6th grade interdisciplinary projects that largely covered the humanities, English and writing subjects, and I have been tutoring for two years within this age group.

English

English is such an exciting, vast, inclusive and inviting subject to teach. It includes anything and everything that you are interested in. Every skill necessary through English can be tackled through a students interests and point of need. One of the reasons I love being a tutor is the ability to cater each lesson to the students exact needs, goals and interests.

Phonics

I am a NYS licensed teacher in Early and Childhood Education (N-6th grade).
I have 5 years of teaching experience including a 2nd grade reading group for which I created all curriculum, leveled all students and taught phonics.

Public Speaking

I am a NYS licensed teacher in Early and Childhood Education (N-6th grade).
I also worked for 10 years in a theater company producing, stage managing and editing plays.
In that capacity I coached actors and worked along side directors to help performers with their public speaking. In addition, as a teacher, I created and taught a theater elective for 5 years that included acting coaching and helping students write speeches as well as deliver them.

Study Skills

I am a NYS licensed teacher in Early and Childhood Education (N-6th grade).
I have been working as a tutor for two years and enjoy working with many students on how best to manage their time and prioritize their work.
As a theater educator I taught students how to produce, direct, and stage manage and in that capacity I created a curriculum for time management, memorization concepts and study skills.

Theatre

I worked as the associate producer and literary manager for a theater company based in NYC for 10 years. I also created and implemented a theater tech/acting coach curriculum in a NYC private school for 5 years. I am also a NYS certified teacher.
