My Orton-Gillingham method tutor training also prepares me to diagnose/determine your areas of difficulty (and strength!) to help you acquire and develop specific subject-matter skills. I emphasize a meta-cognitive approach, so we will discuss what each task requires and the thought processes you will want to implement. Let's get started!

Public Speaking

Most recently, I taught oral presentations in first-year composition at SUNY New Paltz, 2012-2014. I also studied to teach public speaking as part of the English Language Arts curriculum during my Connecticut Alternate Route to Certification training (English 7-12, Conn. endorsement 015). At Stuyvesant High School (NYC), I was captain of the Lincoln-Douglas debate team, winning the NYS championship (1992), the district qualifier (6th at nationals), and a variety of other tournaments. I also qualified for nationals (twice) in extemporaneous speech.
