Katie "...Currently, I teach 9th- and 10th-grade English at a small high school in Brooklyn, where I work intensively with my students to raise achievement in reading comprehension, writing skills, and critical thinking. My proven track record of success includes improved scores on the ELA Regents exam and on the Critical Reading and Writing sections of the SAT.

Mia "...Writing an essay or dissecting a book really boils down to the art of storytelling -- and I think, no matter your age, we all can appreciate to the transformative power of stories.

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..."
