I am a NYS certified teacher in ESL (K-12th) and as a Literacy Specialist (K-12th). I have experience teaching in private homes, in the classroom, special education, and students from pre-school to adults. I specialize in student-centered learning, while maintaining a structured learning environment to provide measurable results. Each tutoring session is an engaging, fresh take on language and literacy development. I typically use a variety of texts, but predominantly compile original and authentic curriculum for each student- tailored to YOUR needs!
I received my Bachelor's degree from Nyack College in TESOL (2008). I thoroughly enjoy teaching students language, and spent time teaching abroad in northern Italy (first graders) and Quito, Ecuador (middle school). All language levels, beginner to advanced, provide for memorable and teachable moments. I received my Master's degree from SUNY Albany as a Literacy Specialist (2010). While pursuing my degree, I spent time volunteering at charter schools and other private schools for at-risk children and teens. Emphasizing the crucial value of reading and writing was at the core of all instruction (across curriculum, science, math, ELA, history, technology, etc.).
I am available for one-on-one sessions or small group (bring a friend!), and have a wonderful tutoring office in Woodside, NY. It is 2 short blocks from the 7 train!
