About Damien

Hello! I am an intelligent, creative education professional with a passion for Math, English, curriculum development and intervention strategies. I am an Academic Program Lead and Teaching Fellow at a middle school in East Harlem, where I teach daily Mathematics Intervention classes and lead daily Guided Reading instruction. I am also a trained and qualified SAT / SHSAT Tutor with over 90th-Percentile scores, as well as a graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.

When I'm not at school, I love relaxing with my girlfriend and our two cats at our home in Astoria, going to the gym, and listening to all different kinds of music. I'm really looking forward to helping you rise to your academic potential and get you to the head of your class!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Since June 2014, I have served as an Academic Program Lead and 6th Grade Teaching Fellow for the Citizen Schools expanded learning time program at Global Technology Preparatory, a low-income blended learning middle school in East Harlem, NYC. I teach daily Mathematics Intervention classes for 6th grade students, as well as lead daily Guided Reading instruction for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. Additionally, I work with key administrators and faculty to design and execute Math and English Language Arts (ELA) Intervention curricula that are aligned to Common Core standards for the 6th grade.
