I am a graduate of the NYU Steinhardt School of Education, and the Manhattan School of Music. I also did undergraduate work at Vassar College. I have two Masters Degrees and have always excelled academically. I have been a teacher for over twenty years, and I am both patient and thorough.
My specialties are College Counseling, and anything and everything to do with the English language --- grammar, spelling, reading, writing (including college essays), speech and public speaking. I also coach spelling bee participants, work with ESL students, and I do test prep --- NYS ELA exam, SAT and ACT reading and writing, Oral Proficiency Interviews, and the TOEFL exam. Additionally, I have been a violin teacher for over 25 years.
My students, whether music or academic, range in age from elementary to adult. I greatly enjoy my work, both as a counselor and as a teacher, and although my standards are very high, I try to make the experience enjoyable.
