I taught in New Jersey and Pennsylvania public and private schools for over 20 years, and have been tutoring one-on-one for over thirty years, starting, at a teacher's request, in high school. I attended Connecticut College, received my undergraduate degree magna cum laude from Douglass College, where I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. My M.Ed. is from Rutgers Graduate School of Education.

I began tutoring in Spanish, then French, then English and Social Studies (History). Over the years I noticed that many of the learning issues stemmed from problems with study skills. Once I began helping students with study and organizational skills, I started receiving referrals from parents whose children were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I now tutor in French, Spanish, English, and Social Studies, with an emphasis on finding ways to reach students who are having difficulty becoming academically successful, or maintaining academic success, whether in one subject or several. I work with any student in sixth grade or above, including college students, using their texts, assignment books and syllabi so that I can tailor tutoring sessions to their teachers' expectations. I can supply any and all additional readings and assignments that parents, students, and I feel necessary, and if asked, work with the students' teachers.

I continue to tutor because I have an easy rapport with students, and have always enjoyed working with them, helping them develop their skills, and seeing their pride as they become more successful. My students are usually middle and high school students.

Study Skills

I have been tutoring in French and Spanish for over 40 years. I have found that the number one reason that students are having problems in the these languages is that they have deficits in their study habits. I first have to organize them by subject, then within that subject by subtopic(e.g.vocabulary, grammar, culture). When appropriate I show them to color-code. Most importantly, I work with each student to see how he or she best learns (e.g. with or without music, with or without short breaks, in private space or at the kitchen table). I cover test taking (memorizing, answering multiple choice,writing essays by organizing thoughts into outlines), writing assignments (thesis statements, bibliographies, note-taking, footnoting, and above all outlining, writing, and re-writing). Vocabulary must be memorized (although there are methods to make that easier), but language, like history, literature, science and math must be understood. Teaching study skills, therefore, is a combination of generalization and specificity, depending on the needs and interests of the student, of all the above skills.

ADHD

I have been working with ADD/ADHD students for the last 20 years in French, Spanish, History, and especially writing, including essays, and research papers. I have trained teachers, both individually and in workshops, in methods to help students with attention deficit issues which impact not only the ability to learn, but also affect social issues, such as behavior and self-esteem. I have, as well, mentored students with ADD/ADHD, including my own children, and began a parents' support group because there was little help from the local schools. As a public school teacher, I worked with many at-risk students whose primary diagnosis was ADD/ADHD. In one of the schools in which I taught I wrote the students' IEP's and held meetings with parents, guidance counselors, and students, in which above all, I advocated for the students.
