I am two time city council award recipient for Excellence in Education. Don't wait until it is too late. None of my students are left behind. I have eight years of public classroom experience with grades 7-12. I served four years as an administrator where I oversaw the day to day performance of more than 500 children and 30 staff members. I currently am the Director for the largest private SES provider in the state.

Your son or daughter will learn and will learn to enjoy learning. I was responsible for bringing several new curricula to my building. One was the creation and development of a literature theatre program to Junior High with a culminating project funded through city council and performed at Queens Theatre in the Park.

My expertise is in literature. I have a degree in English with a focus in literature and poetry. I specialize in reading comprehension and vocabulary apprehension. I am also a very experienced and skilled writing instructor. Need help preparing for your SAT or GED, does your child need help in developing study skills, look no further.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Baseball

From 2008-current I was the manager of the I.S 61 Eagles baseball team which went 31-0 and won two city championships. I also am a left fielder/first baseman with the 5 time league champion Gibson Sackmen semi pro team. I have 25 years of playing experience and have played non stop since 1986.

Cooking

Cooking is in my blood. I studied cooking and food preparation for four years in high school. I also have worked as a cook in various restaurants and currently prepare meals five days a week for my family. I am trained in Italian and American cuisine and possess all the skills needed to run a successful restaurant.

Public Speaking

As an undergraduate, I was required to take a year of Public Speaking coursework. As Dean of the school I was responsible for weekly auditoriums in front of over 500 people at a time. The two full years I spent in public speaking and the eight years in the classroom plus my one year of business to business sales will allow me to teach others the ability to speak in front of audiences
