My name is Ali, and I am a full time, certified teacher of 11 years. I have worked with students from grade 1 through grade 12, and am certified in the following areas: Elementary Education, Special Education, Reading Specialist, and Middle Grades Mathematics. I have my Masters in Reading, Writing, and Literacy from The University of Pennsylvania, and have completed a certificate program in teaching Mathematics from Montclair State University. I am trained in test preparation including SATs, ACTs, and grade level standardized assessments. I currently work as a one on one teacher, and find it is the best way to help learners! I love working with students, and hope to get a chance to meet yours!
