For the past decade, I have worked with students in a variety of academic settings. While working on my MSED in Childhood Mathematics Education (Grades 1-6), I worked in New York City public schools as a substitute teacher, and as a tutor both privately as well as at Sylvan Learning Center. I have tutored k-12th grade students in all subject areas and provided homework support as well.
Since my graduation in 2009, I have continued to tutor, and especially love working with students in mathematics. I believe that through the use of manipulatives, games, and other hands-on methods, every student can learn, and come to enjoy doing so. There is nothing I find more rewarding than watching students grow, build confidence, and find success academically where there used to be frustration and struggle.

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.
I was originally certified in New York State, and now possess a CEAS in Elementary Education here in New Jersey. I have worked in a wide array of pre-k through sixth grade classrooms for the past seven years, and am confident in my ability to help students of this age group in all subject areas.
After scoring a 197/200 on the multi-subject elementary education Praxis, I believe that I am well suited to assist others in passing this exam. Additionally, I graduated summa cum laude with both a BA in Elementary Education and an MSED in Elementary Mathematics Education. I have also spent numerous years tutoring and working in school.
