I recently joined the team at Varsity Tutors and am very excited. I started my tutoring career in college, helping elementary and high school students with Math and English. After graduating from Yeshiva University, I continued my studies at Cardozo Law School. I have been a lawyer for five years, and I am planning now to shift to a more educational career. Last year I worked at a small tutoring center, and I decided to branch out even more and work here.
Since Math and English are heavily tested subjects, I've had the opportunity to help many students in these areas. They actually have some significant similarities: they're both very structured and based on sets of rules. You just have to know the rules and how to apply them. And because of the structure, I think of Math and English problems as puzzles; it makes solving them easier, and it can even make them fun!
Aside from tutoring, two of my favorite hobbies are crosswords and Scrabble (no surprise there!). I even have a few published crosswords of my own. Tennis is another hobby of mine, both watching and playing. I also enjoy traveling; my next trip is to Peru and I can't wait!
