I earned my BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Towson University and both my MA in TESOL and my Advanced Certificate in Administration and Supervision from Hunter College. After graduating Towson, I wanted to find a job in business, but after living in Rome, Italy, and tutoring English I felt the call to become a teacher. Even now, I hold a NYS School Building Leader license but choose not to pursue a job as principal because I love teaching too much! The relationships I build with my students while I help them achieve their success are why I love going to work every day.

My experience consists of teaching and tutoring for 9 years in two NYC high schools - one very competitive, and the other with a poor inner-city population. As a result, I'm very aware of how to vary instruction based on a student's needs, skill level, background knowledge, and individual goals. In addition, I have taught and tutored a variety of courses such as ESL (beginner, intermediate, advanced), ELA, Global Studies 9 and 10, U.S. History, U.S. History Regents Prep, and SAT Critical Reading Prep.

I enjoy tutoring the content of U.S. History and Global Studies because as a former high school AP student the subjects always fascinated me, and I take pleasure in fostering my students' interest in the subject as well. However, I also enjoy teaching reading comprehension and writing skills because they are applicable to not only history and English, but other subjects, too.

My philosophy on tutoring is that it is a partnership; I provide the content knowledge and strategies for delivering the content in comprehensible and fun manner while the student dedicates his/her time and effort. Finally, I take great pride in my students' success, and I am their cheerleader and tireless advocate!

When I'm not teaching or tutoring, I enjoy going to the gym, studying Italian and Spanish, traveling, taking salsa and bachata classes, being outdoors, meeting new people, and using Groupon to try new things - including those out of my comfort zone.

I look forward to working with you!
