After completing my Master's in French, I moved to Nice, France for two years to teach university-level English. Prior to this, I taught French in Hoboken, NJ for students ages 5-10 for an academic year. During my undergraduate career, I minored in Spanish as a nod to my Hispanic heritage and worked with the Permanent Mission of the Dominican Republic to the United Nations. I am a strong advocate for an individualistic teaching approach; no one student learns the same as another and I believe it is my responsibility as an educator to tailor my methods to my students' needs.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I am very big into the idea that every student is different. All of my tutoring is adapted to the individual's needs.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like getting to know who I'm working with so that we're comfortable with each other. I also like to assess their abilities and set goals in the first session.
