I hold a BA in English Adolescent Education from the College of Saint Rose as well as an MA in Liberal Studies from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I currently work at Cengage Learning, an educational publishing company, as an Editorial Assistant to the Acquisitions Editor. I am a New York State Certified English Teacher and will certainly provide my control number for verification. My teaching experience includes two diverse student teaching internships where I gained experience teaching middle and high school students. At Saratoga Springs High School I acted as the regular education teacher in a co-teach atmosphere for eleventh and twelfth grade collaborative English classes. At the LaSalle School for Boys I acted as the regular education teacher for seventh and eighth grade ELA classes.

I strive for relevancy in all aspects of education. I strongly believe that students learn most when they are able to connect with the content. I work to bring real-life, relevant examples to students and help them make a connection with their every day, seemingly "boring" assignments. Tutoring provides a wonderful avenue for giving students one-on-one attention and the tools necessary to help them find true success in their educational careers.
