About Talia

I believe that it is the teacher's responsibility to help a student learn. In order to accomplish this, I create individualized plans to help a student, ask for a student's input, and I also am able to guide students toward helpful academic behaviors. I have training in skill building and changing habits.

I am a writer in my soul and always have been, and I am currently a candidate in an MFA program in Creative Nonfiction. I am also an experienced teacher. I taught creative writing seminars for Harlem Children's Zone and I designed the seminar curricula. Often a curriculum would combine several disciplines, writing and history, for example. I love writing and I love teaching writing. I have taught middle school students and high school students, and I have tutored elementary school students.

That's enough of the academic credentials--- I am also fun-loving and creative. I love ice cream, podcasts, and spending time with my family.

I look forward to hearing from you.
