I love what I do! Teaching has been a passion of mine from when I was a small child teaching my stuffed animals how to read. As I became older and entered into the workforce I found another passion, working with the Special needs population. So, after graduating from Columbia University’s Teacher College with my Dual certification in Intellectual Disabilities/Autism, I began to teach, and have been doing so for the past four years. I have taught both Special and General Education in Private and Charter Schools, and I am currently a Reading Intervention Teacher at a top performing Charter School in NYC.
I specialize in Reading, Writing, and working with students who require a great deal of differentiation. I use a wide array of activities, worksheets, engaging books, and interesting topics in order to hook my students and keep their interest level high to ensure that they get the most out of each session. I pre assess, highlight areas of concerns, set short and long term goals, plan specific lessons, track goals, and administer periodic assessments. I am very flexible and easy going, but I push my students to achieve their full potential.
Some programs which I currently use are Phonics Boost, Great Leaps, Wilson Reading System, and Fountas and Pinnell's Leveled Literacy Intervention.
As a new mother and full time teacher, I respect the value of time, and so I require 24 hours’ notice to change times and/or cancel sessions. I also encourage constant communication regarding updates, progress, questions and concerns.
I am happy to travel to you or to meet in local libraries or book stores.
I look forward to hearing from you, and working with your family! I love what I do! Teaching has been a passion of mine from when I was a small child teaching my stuffed animals how to read.

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.
