I graduated from Farmingdale State College in 2015 with a B.S. in Applied Psychology. I also earned my Masters degree in Psychology from Stony Brook University.

I started tutoring on my own approximately seven years ago. I have tutored over 600 hours and I received an abundance of positive feedback from my students and their parents.

I specialize in SAT and ACT preparation for high school student. I am also interested in tutoring college students preparing for the GRE general test. For test preparation, I assign a decent amount of homework each week and I spend the majority of my sessions going over the questions my students answer incorrectly.

While all of my "professional" and "academic" qualities are certainly important, I think it's also necessary for you to understand more about me as a person. I consider myself a "nerd" and I am no longer self-conscious about it - it's who I am. I love school, but aside from that I enjoy reading and writing. To me, the smell of a bookstore is like that of a decadent chocolate cake to many others. Although throughout the school year I typically only engage in academic writing, in my down-time I write poetry and I'm working on a young adult novel. I'm an athlete. When I was younger I did karate for about 6.5 years and got my black belt. Finally, during the winter I take pleasure in crocheting. I make hats, blankets, stuffed animals, and anything else I can come up with.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in breaking down the difficult concepts into small, manageable pieces. I tailor this to each student that I teach so that I can make sure we understand each other.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Before the first session, I like to ask the student/parent what he or she is looking to get out of tutoring. During the session, I work to assess the student's needs. For instance, if we are doing SAT tutoring, I ask the student to complete a section before we meet, and then during the session, I will go over a review of the test. Then we will go over the answers to the questions that the student did on his or her own. That way, I can get a better idea of what level the student is starting at.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I like to assign homework each session for my students and ask them to apply the concepts that we went over during our sessions to complete the homework. I also leave it up to the students to let me know which areas they struggled with on the homework, encouraging them to advocate for their needs.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I like to give me students a lot of positive reinforcement. I point out the mistakes they make, but I make a point to emphasize the things that they do right along the way. I also like to track their progress so that they can see how far they have come as we progress in tutoring.
