I am an extremely patient and passionate educator. My teaching approach easily adapts to meet the needs of your learning style. I work successfully with both high-achieving students as well as students who experience difficulty within traditional classroom environments.

I hold a BA in Liberal Arts from Sarah Lawrence College, an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and am a U.S. Fulbright Scholar to the Philippines. I am a professional fine artist as well as a classroom teacher.

At the middle school/high school level, I tutor students in core curricula as well as standardized testing (SSAT, ISEE, SAT, SAT 2, ACT).

I enjoy guiding students through all aspects of the college application process: application organization, brainstorming and editing personal essays, portfolio preparation, resume review, mock interviews, etc. I work closely with students to develop Common App and supplemental college essays that present their most outstanding traits to college admission boards. At the post-secondary level, I help students improve thesis writing, research practices, project proposals, and essay editing for graduate school admission and competitive fellowships (ie Fulbright).

I am a Spanish-speaker, studied academic Spanish at universities in Cuba and Argentina, and have spent extensive time in Latin America. I customize my lessons to meet the learning needs and language acquisition goals of each student. Students may improve their Spanish language skills in grammar, reading, writing, and oral understanding. I also teach conversational/colloquial Spanish as well as assist with accent reduction. Additionally, I have been hired to do specialized translation work (i.e., medical translation during surgical procedures) and can help you build a Spanish lexicon specific to your field.

I work with both native English speakers as well as ESL students to improve writing ability and reading comprehension. Students may customize their lessons to focus on any aspect of the English language such as grammar, vocabular
