I am an elementary and special education teacher. Previously, I attended Montclair State University for both my bachelor's and master's degrees. With the support of my family, friends and the Almighty God, I was able to graduate summa cud laude both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

As an educator, I strive to make learning a positive and engaging experience. I enjoy getting to know my students, seeing what their passions are and what they get excited about. This gives me tools to use when planning instruction. Overall, my approach to learning is hands-on with having students understand the "why" instead of rote memorization. When I have a struggling student, it is my job to find where the issue lies through observation, questioning and working with the student one-on-one.

Once I have the information I need, I decide on the best way to instruct the student with a hands-on approach. I then give students time to practice on their own, giving feedback or assistance when needed. Finally, I like to give an informal and brief, 3 question assessment about 3 things the student learned, 2 things the student thought was interesting and 1 remaining question they have.

I look forward to meeting you and working with your children. Bringing out the potential and passion for learning is a daily job of mine that I do not take lightly. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule as lesson!

Elementary (K-6th)

As an elementary and special educator, I have ample experience differentiating my instruction techniques to best fit the specific learning needs of students. I have different learning tools to assist student learning and ensure student understanding. Graphic organizers, mnemonic devices and concrete tools are strategies I commonly use in the classroom and during tutoring sessions to enable students to reach their full potential.

Elementary Math

As an in-class support teacher, I have worked with students who have various needs in mathematics. Using learning tools such as base ten blocks, counters, dry erase boards, games and other methods, I have developed a toolkit to assist different kinds of learners. Math instruction must be explicit and tailored to the individual learner to be successful; I am confident I can meet this ambitious goal for all students I take under my wing.

As an elementary & special education teacher, I have ample experience in reading instruction. Students whom I have worked with have increased their reading fluency, their ability to retell the story as well as work on comprehension strategies. Additionally, I work with students on engaging with the text, including making text-to-self connections and reasonable predictions. Using strategies such as think marks and post-its, students will uncover skills to enhance their reading skills, becoming stronger readers and critical thinkers.

As a highly organized teacher and former student, I stress the importance of setting goals. Moreover, I then teach my students how to shorten those goals into smaller, everyday goals to reach the big goals. This has been successful with students in approving their confidence as a whole, in turn increasing their grades in the academic setting.
