There are so many wonderful things to learn! I am a lifelong teacher. I hold a New York State teaching certification in art and live on Long Island, in New York, where I have tutored professionally since 1985. Over these many years, I have worked with students from 5 years through 80 years of age, and at all levels of academic achievement, including students who were home schooled and those with IEPs. I have tutored the GRE, GMAT, and LSAT exams for students who were candidates for graduate school, and have worked with students taking the NTE and NYSTCE exams to earn New York State teacher certification. For the past fifteen years, I have focused on SAT, ACT, SSAT and ISEE prep, which I really enjoy. Over these fifteen years and literally hundreds of students, I have honed my style and skills. I develop strong rapport with my students, seek out their individual needs, foster healthy improvements in their scores and work to build their confidence. I have a small backyard nursery, and I spend much of my personal time tending to my plants and enjoying needle arts and painting.
