I have a BA degree in psychology from St. John's University and an MA in guidance and counseling from New York University. I have been working with college students with documented disabilities for the last seven years, but have also spent time working with non disabled students in grades k through 9.

I currently work at a local university providing academic accommodations and coaching to students with and without documented disabilities. I can provide assistance in preparing for the transition from high school to college in terms of accommodation availability, responsibility, etc., as well as provide preparation via review of student skills necessary for success. I also administer ADHD screenings that help individuals decide whether or not to get further evaluated.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a Learning Specialist. I administer ADHD screenings to students suspected of going undiagnosed & offer student success trainings to strengthen their skills.

College Counseling

I have been a college counselor for 9 years, providing academic, personal and career counseling to a broad population of both traditional & nontraditional students. I currently act as an academic coach, providing services to students on academic probation.
