Being an educator is extremely fulfilling!
online and in person
As a graduate of Cornell University (undergrad), I received instruction from top scholars in their field. Initially, I majored in the fine arts program, and later transferred into the communication arts major. After graduating and then teaching in the New York City Public School system for a number of years, I attended graduate school and earned my masters degree in education. I later earned my tenure and took on various roles and responsibilities throughout my lengthy classroom teaching career. I possess New York State certification for elementary education subjects, as well as in the visual arts for grades K through high school.My background in visual arts has strengthened my ability to integrate academics with the arts, which allows me to reach various types of learners. During my twenty-five plus year teaching career, I have taught all of the elementary grade levels in various subject areas, including the visual arts. I was also a reading specialist who was instrumental in selecting the most effective reading programs for elementary level students. I provided intensive small group reading instruction which helped improve the reading skills of many struggling students . I am also proud that I had the opportunity to provide training and guidance to first year teachers within the New York City public school system while working as a mentor. For the last ten years, I have been working as a professional tutor, and I teach on a part time basis.I work with students who have learning challenges as well as students who are academically gifted. Students consider me to be patient and receptive to their academic and emotional needs.I try to be flexible with scheduling tutoring sessions and I try my best to make up for any missed ones. I use a 24 hour cancellation policy.I look forward to hearing from you!
