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.

I went to the Ramaz School. I studied Hebrew through 12th grade. For the past four years I have tutored and been a substitute teacher at Temple Israel.

Tennis

I played NCAA tennis for two years, starting in both singles and doubles. I taught tennis for a summer at Woodbury Tennis Camp, where I was also a camper. I have taught private lessons.
