Bio

I received my BS from NYU in Communications in 2013. I am a certified Language Arts teacher for grades 6-12 via Montclair State University's MAT program (teaching English).

In the past, I tutored for a group of elementary students in Englewood, NJ. The program focused on test prep, more specifically, the COOP exam.

I received my BS from NYU in Communications in 2013. I am a certified Language Arts teacher for grades 6-12 via Montclair State University's MAT program (teaching English).

In the past, I tutored for a group of elementary students in Englewood, NJ. The program focused on test prep, more specifically, the COOP exam. Lesson plans focused on grammar and mathematics, the two subjects that comprised a bulk of the exam. Throughout the rest of the year, after the exam took place, I focused on homework help and study strategies.

The greatest aspect of tutoring is the one-on-one experience; I feel oftentimes children clamp up in a classroom setting, stemming from confidence issues, or just being a shy in nature. A tutoring session can offer a less anxious environment for a child. My experience in childcare for over 10 years now enables me to make most children feel comfortable, a key part in succeeding as a team.

I was educated in Catholic, private schools for both Elementary and High School. As is customary in Catholic schooling, a large part of my education was focused on grammar, reading, and writing. As I entered High School, I was placed in higher level English and took AP English Literature in my senior year. In preparation for the exam, I underwent a rigorous study of the structure of american English. Grammar, spelling, and especially vocabulary became a central part of my life as a student. Consequently, I have decided to continue my studies in English Education at Montclair State.

At Montclair, I continued my studies of American English with linguistics courses and writing intensives. I graduated May 2018 and received my NJEAS from the State of New Jersey after completing the Masters program, Praxis II exam, and edTPA state certification exam.

I am now a Language Arts teacher for grades 5, 7, and 8 in Livingston, New Jersey. I have three years of teaching students English Language Arts through project based learning, writing workshops, novel based unit's of study, and of course test prep through the instruction of short stories and non fiction texts.

Spelling and handwriting are one of my greater strengths. I am deeply enthused by language and I a firm believer in the importance of being a good speller. I believe spelling can offer students a greater chance at succeeding on standardized writing exams as well as building confidence in their writing assignments. A lot of my success in school was due to spelling studies. I became an avid speller and competed in state competitions.

My availability ranges from early mornings to late afternoons over the summer. I have open availability Mondays through Fridays. I look forward to meeting some great students through this process.
