About Therese

Mentoring students has been a lifelong passion. After graduating with a BA in Elementary Education, I taught full-time for 13 years. I taught grades 3, 5 and 6, and created a district-wide gifted and talented program. During this time I also received an MA as a Reading Specialist as well as a Teacher of Reading and Supervisory certification. My desire to learn about teaching methods in other countries led to international exchange programs, where I had opportunities to teach in England and Russia.

Mid-career, my focus turned to writing. I have authored five poetry collections. My essays and poetry are widely published in magazines. Mentoring students broadened as well. Through the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and other educational facilities such as EIRC, I visit schools to engage students in the writing process. I lead professional development workshops for educators. I have worked with students in grades level K-12, and have had the chance to work with Eskimos in the far north of Alaska. Currently, I am an adjunct professor and teach composition, literature, and creative writing classes online.

I am able to tutor online as well as in-person.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Reading

My reading qualifications include a BA in Elementary Education and MA in Reading Education. I also have earned two certifications, one as a Reading Specialist and the other a Teacher of Reading Certification.

Writing

I teach for a community college and am therefore aware of college expectations. I am a visiting writer in schools and have worked with several students at the high school level.
