I have been teaching for over thirty five years. I am presently teaching at one of the highest rated high schools in Westchester. I currently teach honors level.

I have taught regents biology, physical science, and AP Biology and have achieved a tremendous success rate with my students. I worked with over thirty five students last year to prepare them for the SAT II-Subject test in Biology. Ninety percent of my students earn 700 or greater. I have helped many students to earn perfect scores on the exam.

I also have developed special techniques with students with learning disabilities since I had experienced this with my youngest daughter. They are just "late bloomers" and are capable of doing as well as their peers in school. What I love most about tutoring is when a student meets with me who has had academic difficulties in science and then they "ace" the next test. The motivation ,confidence, and pride can be seen a week later when we meet again.

I understand how to communicate with all my students. I am a mother first and a teacher second. When a student is relaxed with you they can learn anything. A good teacher can teach any subject with the know how and the right tools. I have tutored students from public, parochial, and private schools from all socioeconomic backgrounds. I receive many recommendations and work with younger siblings of past students. I will treat each student as if they are a member of the family and I do not live by the tutoring hour clock. I will create worksheets, practice tests with answer keys, and recommend certain sites for my clients to use as a study tool.

Albert Einstein was a genius but could not teach. He had to leave MIT. People who have graduated from Ivy League schools do not graduate as teachers. Teaching experience comes from a great deal of time invested in students. You have to teach with words for auditory learners, notes and diagrams for visual learners, and with materials for kinestetic learners. Telling someone is not teaching, using the Socratic method of questioning them is true teaching since the student is thinking for themselves.
