I am a former adjunct professor of Political Science at Montclair State University and currently a PhD student at the University of Washington. I have three years of teaching experience at the university level and an additional seven years of experience teaching the GRE and the SAT (reading, writing, and math). I also specialize in reading and writing for students in the middle school and early high school years. Lastly, I spent two years teaching English in China and love to work with students for whom English is a second language (as it was for me when I moved to the US from Russia at the age of 8). I look forward to working with you and your families. Recommendations are provided upon request!
