I have more than 12 years experience teaching writing and reading at the college level. I am currently teaching Developmental Reading and a third-semester Reading/Writing class for English as Second Language (ESL) students at the College of Staten Island, CUNY and an ESL course at Monroe College. Last year, I worked at Bronx Community College’s College Now Program, which is designed to introduce and orient high school juniors and seniors to the demands of college. I also served as a volunteer GED tutor client of the NYU/Bellevue Hospital’s Victims of Torture program.
Moreover, several years ago, as a freelance writer, I wrote the student study guide for The Autobiography of Malcolm X.
As a teacher, I bring real-world scenarios – from newspaper articles and online content – to engage and broaden the horizons of my students. Furthermore, as evidenced by my ESL teaching experience, I have worked with diverse student populations throughout my teaching career.

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 have seven years of experience teaching in elementary schools in New York City. I taught in a Resource Room, where I provided individualized instruction for students who were having problems in reading, writing and math. I have a masters degree in Educational Psychology; I can identify how best a student learns and then use that modality to teach that student.
I have worked with a wide range of students - from elementary school to college-level, assisting them in time-management, organizational and study skills to improve outcomes.
I have worked one-on-one with all age levels to set schedules - making daily, weekly and monthly schedules - to complete homework and long-range tasks.
I have stressed with my students to plan fun activities as "rewards" for completing tasks.
I have also worked with working adults who need to organize their time to complete not only school-related tasks but personal and professional tasks.
