With over twelve years of experience working with both elementary and high school students as a tutor, STEM instructor, and teacher's assistant, I am committed to helping students of all age groups succeed and achieve their goals. Specializing in breaking down complex concepts, presenting them in a fun, creative, accessible way, and explaining them using everyday terms and examples. I understand every student learns differently; by talking to and observing how the student works, I tailor my lesson plans to best suit his or her individual learning style and needs. I am a native Spanish speaker and am able to teach in both English and Spanish.

Learning has been my lifelong passion; I spend my free time reading up on and researching just about any and every subject and part of the passion extends to passing on an enthusiasm for acquiring knowledge to others. Not every student learns best my sitting in a classroom and being lectured at; thus when a student claims to be dissatisfied with school or is struggling with coursework, it is often because they are not engaged in class and/or require a different approach to understand what is being taught. I am dedicated to engaging students in learning by helping them to identify their strengths and teaching them in a manner that best fits with their learning style. I have familiarity with the new Common Core Curriculum, New York State Testing including ITBS, NYS tests, and Regents.

I have experience teaching the following subjects:
-Elementary School (all subjects)
-English, Spanish, Literature, Grammar, Writing Skills/Editing, History, Biology/Life Science, Psychology, SAT Verbal/Critical Reading, and NYS Regents test prep.

Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice at St. John's University (Queens, NY) in May 2012. From there I went on to pursue a Master's degree in Criminal Justice at Colorado Technical University, which I completed in December 2013. In my current position as a teaching artist with Manhattan Youth, I teach Forensics and Criminology courses to middle school and high school students 3-5 times a week both after school and during summer camp sessions. I personally develop the lesson plans for these courses and said lessons have been submitted to and approved by my supervisors.
