Hello, I graduated from Queens College with an English degree and a Business minor. I have been on the Dean's List for several consecutive semesters and was the recipient of an Honors in the Humanities scholarship.
Currently, I work as a college English tutor at CUNY Queens College's Writing Center. At the Writing Center, I have tutored everything from ESL students to the mentally challenged. I have also been a private tutor for high school, middle, and college students for the past three years. For five months, I also was a volunteer tutor for Reading Partners, which helps young children who struggle with their reading and writing. My specialties include essay editing, grammar mechanics, reading, literature and writing development.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I guide the student towards the right answer. I want them to try to work it out by themselves, but with assistance.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would outline their strengths and weaknesses regarding a certain subject first.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I would do that by giving them hints and not a direct answer. I'd only help them if they got something wrong twice. They need to try to figure it out by themselves first.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I like to give positive reinforcements through compliments and reminding them of their progress.
