I have a Masters Degree in Education from Bank Street College and a post graduate degree from Fordham University in Educational Supervision. I have a lot of experience in planning and designing curriculum and in using mindful learning strategies in my practice. I work with children who are home schooled and those attending public and private schools who are in pre-K through 8th grades.

I work with students who are gifted and talented and those who have learning challenges. I teach organization and planning strategies in all the subject areas such as literacy, history and science. I integrate technology into the lessons at times, and provide highly engaging lesson plans that meet the individual needs of all my students.

Please contact me freely anytime for further inquiries.

Thank you.

I am a certified educator and currently supervising Arts Education Student Teachers as an Adjunct Faculty Member at Queens College, CUNY. I give seminars on the integration of arts and science in education at the New York Botanical Gardens to NYC teachers-the seminar is on environmental education and digital photography.
Theater

Theater

My undergrad and graduate degrees in psychology and Ed counseling have placed me as a guidance counselor in schools. I have used techniques of stress reduction and mindful education practice to enable students with presentation anxiety to excel in theater arts and all academic subjects when presenting to large and small groups. I help children with special needs to overcome stressful situations publicly, and teach communication and oral presentation skills that boost confidence and enhance theatre arts.

My pre-school experience in teaching was in the Rodeph Shalom Nursery School and in Manhattan Day School. Both are Hebrew Day Schools. I am privately school in Judaic Studies and Hebrew Language, have taken the NYS Regents in Hebrew and have studied, lived and visited Israel and continue to do so. It would be so nice to tutor children in Hebrew Language. I think that my training and experience would benefit. Thanks for considering. Sincerely,

With my M.S.Ed., in education and counseling, I am trained in Developmental Guidance, Wilson Reading and Schools Attuned. I have worked with schools and train and supervise teachers in the NYC public schools and in NY independent schools.

Special Needs

I am a practitioner who has worked with students who are gifted and talented and those who have learning challenges, and who therefore understands that differentiated teaching and universal design for learning will enable you to reach your maximum potential and exceed expected outcomes. Your strengths will be identified, you will become more mindful, more aware of the ways you learn and much more independent. You will own your own successes. These newly acquired strategies that you learn are leveraged strengths with the capacity to be generalized beyond the tutoring sessions.
