I have fifteen years of experience in teaching English as a Second Language and preparing students to pass their United States Citizenship Interview. My career in Adult Education included helping students with basic skills (reading, writing, math, grammar) and test-taking skills necessary for passing the GED test. I also taught office and computer skills.
Although I myself have had high academic achievement and a master's degree from Columbia University, I pride myself on not being pedantic. I meet my students' needs with patience and kindness, building their confidence and facilitating their progress. My methods help individuals achieve their goals.

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.
My specialty for many years has been helping students to prepare for and pass tests that help them reach their goals. I have assisted students in passing the GED and Citizenship tests. I have also worked for New Jersey Bell (now Verizon) to help their employees pass company tests for promotion. My strong points are assessing a student's strengths and weaknesses, building their confidence as they improve their skills.
I graduated from Brooklyn College with honors in biology and earned a master's degree in zoology from Columbia University. I taught high school biology and general science before switching to the field of adult education.
I believe my adult ed experience gives me the ability to assess a student's skills and problem areas. I can then provide the support needed to help him/her achieve success in any subject area. However, biology is the particular discipline in which I have a very strong academic background myself.

I am an avid reader with a joy of reading that started when I was a little girl. Therefore, I have enthusiasm and skills to share with my students.
