"Serving as a prosecutor in the Bronx County District Attorney's Office, I saw first hand the tragic results of our city's failing educational system. I saw the widening achievement gap and I became passionate about closing it. I knew that my talents could be best employed by helping New York City's youth reach their full potential. After leaving the DA's Office, I worked with the New York City Teaching Fellows to get my teaching certification."

"I'm in New York studying theater and voice but miss my science classes and students like crazy! I'm particularly strong in biology but also totally comfortable with chemistry, English and writing, social studies/history, and test prep. As a teacher my style is to help students discover the answers on their own, and become more confident in their ability to use critical thinking. When I'm not tutoring you can find me running or playing with my mutt Franklin!."

" When I tutor, I feel that I am able to empathize with my student’s frustrations and this establishes a bond of trust. From there, I am able to motivate my students to do their homework with a new positive attitude. Of course discipline is also of the utmost importance, as I sometimes have to become a taskmaster and gently prod my students to stay focused and explore their work from a vantage point of curiosity rather than boredom, which I have found to be the best strategy to get them interested in their work.."

" During the week, I am a practicing attorney who has taken and passed three bar exams - each on the first attempt. I believe that any student can achieve and that no one style fits everyone. I maintain flexibility and adjust my methodologies for each student that I work with. However, I generally like to keep my sessions casual, focusing on improving the student's confidence and scores, as I have found that some students become discouraged when they struggle. In my spare time I read a wide variety of books, enjoy listening to music, and playing with my three-year-old daughter. When I can find time, I like doing crossword puzzles as well.." ...
