As a student I confronted my own difficulties in getting a focus and being able to see the beauty in the work that lay ahead of me. I gained focus when I went to graduate school where I studied to be a school counselor for students who are deaf or hard of hearing There I learned that everyone learns in a different way and so what we often see as a disability is just a basic difference between how we think a student should learn and we are teaching them.

I approach my tutoring from that perspective. Each student wants to learn and can learn if they are taught in the correct way. It is the tutors job to assess the student find the way to teach the student so that they can learn.

My career has brought me a wide variety of experiences working with children and adults in many different situations. I bring all of this experience to my task as a tutor no matter what the subject is that I am teaching

I have a masters degree in school counseling and many years of experience working with students with special needs. i am fluent in American sign Language. My interests are varied and I have the ability to make any situation a learning situation and any learning situation a fun time.

I worked for 8+ years with special needs students in both formal and informal educational setting. I was the Dean of Students at the Wisconsin School for the Deaf, I was the Director of the Tikvah Program at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin. I have tutored students in Hebrew, English and various religious topics. My masters degree is in School Counseling and I have two additional years of training in Marriage and Family Therapy.
