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.
