About Sal

People often ask me: "Sal, why do you teach?", and the 99.9% of the time my answer is the same: Because it's the only profession (in my opinion) where the daily reward is powerful, thought-provoking and in some cases life-changing. My love of teaching has spanned over ten years in and around the New Haven CT community and in the time I have taught inner-city youth to Ivy League-bound high-schoolers. I have helped countless students find a love of reading, or find their voice in their prose or poetry. I have helped students prepare for acting auditions (having been an actor myself for many years) and above all, I like to think that I have helped countless students find a confidence within themselves to challenge their belief of what is possible in terms of their education and their future growth and development as academics, actors, athletes ..... human beings.

I often tell people that I am an English teacher who teaches how to use reading, writing and literature to improve life -- to inspire and motivate. To visualize and achieve,

I can teach any level of English, reading, writing, as well as acting and theater, I am also qualified to teach novel writing, screenwriting and poetry. I am also a life-long athlete and swimmer and can teach/coach swimming as well.

I am a father of two young daughters, but I do have a flexible schedule and will be willing to negotiate rates and location of lessons. I am here to help and inspire. I look forward to hearing from you!

I am a Certified high school English teacher (over ten years). BA/MA in English / fiction writing. I have had short stories published as well as having been awarded literary honors for some works.

Life long athlete and collegiate swimmer. Crossfit level 1 trainer.

Sometimes all we need is the right teacher to help us unlock those amazing possibilities locked within us. Let me help you find that greatness.
