I am a NYS Certified Teacher (K-12) with experience teaching AP English, English Language Arts, Reading Support and ESL.

Why hire a teacher as a tutor? Knowing information and knowing how to teach it well are separate skills. I have strong subject knowledge in addition to a knowledge of pedagogical methods. I can do more than support you through individual assignments; I will help you to improve your skills for lasting results and increased performance where you need it most.

I have completed specialized training programs with the Department of Education in teaching AP Language and Composition and REWARDS Reading, an Orton-Gillingham approach for reading support. Students can expect to receive professional support or enrichment tailored to their individual needs and goals.

Graduate Degree: MA in TESOL from Teachers College, Columbia University. Undergraduate Degree: BA in English from the University of Mississippi, recipient of the Taylor Medal in English, the highest academic honor awarded by the university.
