I attended Suny Old Westbury University for my undergraduate degree. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Special Education and General Education Grades 1-6. I then went on to complete my Bachelor of Science Degree at Touro College in ESL. Before starting a family, I taught in the New York City public school system as a Special Education teacher. I tutor all subjects at the elementary level (grades K-6) since that is where I gained most of my experience; however I can also tutor students in higher grade levels in reading and writing as well. I enjoy tutoring all subjects but would have to choose reading, writing, math, and social studies as my favorites. I love social studies because I love teaching children about the world we live in and its rich history. Math was difficult for me as a child, however now as an adult I see why I had trouble and feel I can help students who are having the same difficulties that I did.
I describe my tutoring style as fun and interactive. I believe that learning in any subject can be enjoyable, even though it may be challenging. I like to use manipulatives for a hands-on approach to learning in mathematics and materials for reading and writing that children have an interest in. Outside of teaching, I love to spend time outside with my family any chance I get. I enjoy going to museums, aquariums, amusement parks, and any place that allows me to interact with animals.
