I am currently a 5th and 6th grade math/science teacher in an upper elementary school, with a K-8 elementary education certification. I have passed the Praxis Exams for Middle School Math and Science, which makes me "highly qualified" to teach both subjects. Even though these subjects are my focus, I have always had passion for Language Arts, and can also tutor in that as well. I have tutored before, both in the classroom, as part of an after school program, and privately.
I have been teaching now for 10 years. Prior to teaching, I worked in advertising in NYC, in a role that required a lot of math. After deciding to switch careers, I went back to school to get my Master of Arts in Teaching degree. It has been a rewarding journey! This year I was even named Teacher of the Year at my school, which has truly been an honor!
I utilize many different resources - print and online. I have excellent standardized test scores. Every student I've tutored has shown an improvement in their grades, attitude, and confidence!
I look forward to working with you! I offer hourly sessions, or half hour sessions - whatever fits your needs. I am available after school most days (3:30 - 8pm) and on weekends.
