I am a New York State Certified Elementary Teacher with over twenty years of enrichment and remediation tutoring experience in literacy and math. I spent ten years teaching at a private school in Greenwich, Connecticut with students ranging in age from 3-10 years old.
My strengths include creating a positive learning environment and an individualized education plan unique to each child's learning style. I enjoy working with students and helping them with their academics along with building confidence through positive feedback.

Having a background in Montessori Elementary Education in addition to my Masters in Education enables me to create a program that involves various learning methods and strategies. I provide all necessary materials and will design and create curricular items as needed. I have received certificates for specialized training in the Handwriting Without Tears Program for grades K-5 and the Preschool Literacy and Math program from Learning Without Tears.

I am familiar with all elementary subjects and grades of the New York State Common Core curriculum.
I work part time teaching pre-k. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching art history workshops to both children and adults at local libraries.
My references are excellent.

Please feel free to contact me by e-mail if you are interested or have any questions.

So patient and helpful

Helen is awesome at keeping my son engaged. She is also so so so patient. He has enjoyed working with her and we both think she is just terrific. She often follows up lessons with related handouts that outline helpful tips and practices.

Experienced, Knowledgeable, and Patient

Helen has done an amazing job with both my 6 year old and my 8 year old. Her teaching style is what keeps my kids engaged and interested in learning. She is excellent at identifying individual strengths and weaknesses within different subjects and then adjusting her teaching strategy to maximize my kids ability to learn. They actually look forward to their time with Helen. She is very highly recommended!

Helen is going to be AMAZING!

Helen quickly was able to assess my rising 1st grader where he was from a Montessori aspect and could quickly identify what to prepare for him and what to work on. I could hear and see her confidence in what she could do backed by her years of experience as a Montessorian in the classroom. I am looking forward to our time with her.
