I've had my love for teaching for as long as I can remember. My love for teaching elementary education stems from a place because I was never the best student in school and felt I had to work twice as hard as most of my classmates just to keep up. Through these struggles I faced in school, I found a passion to work with children to help them understand that just because they're struggling doesn't mean they are a worse student than their peers.
I've worked with students in multiple capacities. I've been a one on one tutor in low income neighborhoods. I've also tutored students who are reading multiple years below grade level. One of my students made a jump from reading at a kindergarten level to a first/second grade level by the end of our semester together. During my graduate school work, I was a special education intern, working with students who had IEPs in a pull out of general education setting. Most recently I was a full-time student teacher for a fifth grade class room in San Francisco. I assumed the role of full time teaching, while the main teacher took time off for a family emergency. Since moving back to New Jersey, I've been searching for an opportunity to use my education to aid others!
I am confident in my abilities to work with students of all ranges, primarily in grade school levels. My strengths include working with students one on one on problem areas, as well as helping students catch up to grade level or get that little extra boost to support their school year.
Working in San Francisco, I was exposed to a very diverse community. I had multiple students I worked with one on one who were just learning English for the first time, and spoke another language solely at home. By doing this, I had to learn creative ways to help students solidify their English development. I've also had the opportunity to work in areas where resources were very limited and had to find ways to help students increase their reading ability.
Students and parents, please feel free to reach out to me with any of your tutoring needs! I'm willing to travel to homes or meet in libraries or coffee shops to help accommodate the needs of students! I currently have a fairly flexible schedule and am willing to work around the schedule of students! I've had my love for teaching for as long as I can remember.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
