I am a graduate of Dowling College which is located in Oakdale, New York. I received my Bachelor of Arts in English and my Master of Science in Secondary Education. During my time at Dowling, I volunteered as a tutor for academically challenged students. I am also a volunteer for Suffolk Literacy where I work with adults on Long Island who are looking to improve their reading or English speaking skills. In my experience as a tutor, I’ve always tried to make lessons engaging and fun for my students. I believe that students learn best when they experience knowledge for themselves, while receiving guidance and encouragement from their teacher. I truly enjoy tutoring and want to help my students achieve academic success. I’m especially passionate about helping struggling readers. If a child has difficulty deciphering words and sentences, how can he/she be expected to grasp math, science, and social concepts presented in school? Good reading skills are important for excelling in school and succeeding in life. I am a strong advocate of the importance of education and believe it is one of the most significant messages we should impart to children and young adults. In my spare time I enjoy reading, running, bird watching, and old movie classics.
