About Niecey

Hello, my name is Ms. J. I am a young, honest highly motivated person living in Long Island, NY. Naturally, I take the initiative in any task I am engaging in. I refuse to not be able to grow in life, so I have taken on the goal of becoming a tutor.

Recently I received certification to Teach English as a second language (TESOL). Currently, I work in a High School as a Family Para (Clerical), also asst. coach for my schools Double Dutch team. I conduct training sessions for teachers and workshops in my Dept. (Special Education dept) throughout the school year. I am a self-taught volunteer interpreter for American Sign Language (3 years+) with the hopes of soon becoming certified in this skill.

My hobbies include writing and producing music, which has become more evident in the current months as as result of showcases performed in various NYC locations. Overall, if there are areas of improvement, I am always proactive in developing the skills needed to match the task. I am proud of my ability to adapt in different settings and work well along with others.

I am privileged to be among a staff of developed tutors.
