This is why I became a teacher: The commercial art business became too much about design and not enough about people. I loved being an Art Director, but I wanted to be of service to real people, not advertisers!
Once I became a teacher I never looked back. There has not been a day when I didn't feel proud of what I do. I'm always pleased and rewarded to guide a student to a higher level.
The feeling of success is shared by both the tutor and the student because I work as a teacher, a mentor, a cheerleader, and a partner with my students. As an Art teacher or classroom teacher, I taught children from Kindergarten through 6th grade and then went on to work with middle school students in NYC tutoring subject matter and test preparation. I feel honored to be able to work with students one-on-one to develop a real rapport with each one. My students learn well because I can put them at ease.
My specialty is in Reading Comprehension and Creative Writing for young learners and Test prep and Writing for older learners.
I realize that my college studies in Communications and my Masters
in Education have come together to make me the confident teacher
I am today, and I am always thrilled to begin with a new student.
