I am currently a middle school Language Arts teacher in a Gifted and Talented Public School in Elizabeth, NJ. I was born in Miami, FL and moved to Elizabeth at a very young age. I was raised and educated (K-12) in Elizabeth and am honored to be giving back to my community as a teacher in such a progressive district! As an undergraduate and graduate student, I attended Fairleigh Dickinson University in Madison, NJ. In 2008, I received my BA in Psychology and MA in Teaching in 2009. Over the course of my high school and college experiences, I tutored students in primary grades (K-5) in Reading, Writing, and Mathematics. Currently, as a Language Arts teacher, I meet with students individually and in small groups regularly to target specific Reading and Writing concepts/skills that they are struggling with. I believe weaknesses are strengths in disguise. With hard work and dedication, anything is possible. That is my tutoring/teaching philosophy. I enjoy getting to know my students and building relationships with them. As an educator, I try to individualize my teaching practices for my students in a way that will be relatable and understandable for them. Some students prefer visual elements in a lesson while others enjoy something a little more "hands on." Analyzing a complex text or writing an essay to a rigorous prompt are not easy tasks; however, with my help, we can complete such tasks and complete them well in no time! I enjoy teaching and tutoring because I ultimately enjoy learning. I hope you do too! When I am not teaching or tutoring, you may find me reading, working on an arts and crafts project for my home, or dancing! I love going on adventures, trying something new, hearing a funny joke or out of this world story, and spending time with friends and family.
