I love teaching and tutoring children of all ages, and have been working in the field of education for six years, including doctoral coursework in education.

I am currently in my fourth year as a preschool Head Teacher, and am excited to work with older students navigating their academic journeys. I have an extensive background in early literacy experience, and worked as a literacy coach at PS 256 in Brooklyn. I have also coordinated a weekly Homework Help tutoring session for middle school students at a Charter School in Brooklyn. Additionally, I have tutored PSAT and SAT prep with the Arab-American Family Support Center in Brooklyn. I continually take on private college writing coaching clients at the undergraduate and graduate level.

From the ages of 2 to 22, I easily connect with young people through humor, empathy, and generosity. I love helping others, and with such a dynamic background working with all sorts of people, I'm able to create routes of learning to accommodate all sorts of learning styles and personality interests.

I believe in making tutoring applicable to everyday life, and individualized to each student, so that it becomes 'real'. I am very creative resourceful about bringing in outside materials to thicken a student's connection to the curriculum at hand. For example, in SAT prep, I may have a student read a chapter from Junot Diaz's 'The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao', because its content piques the interest of teenagers while also utilizing sophisticated vocabulary words.

I love tutoring because of the special relationships I build with students-- knowing each other personally and intellectually-- that allow me to share my academic skills so that she/he can succeed in each and every way that she/he desires.

I love problem-solving and relating mathematical concepts to applied everyday life. My GRE quantitative score was 760 out of 800.

I would love to hear about your tutoring goals and how I could help you get there!
