I am a current certified 7th grade ELA teacher at a New York City Public school. My career started in 2013; however, I have been a tutor since 2010.
Reading comprehension and writing are some of the specific skills I focus on with my students in my classroom.
Test preparation is another area that I am well versed in. Assisting students and time to improve their skills are all important to me as a educator.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Every child needs a champion; someone who will not give up on them even when they feel they have lost all hope. I believe there is an opportunity for students to become better in all aspects of their learning. Students need to develop a growth mindset and know they are able to grow in all areas.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
During my first session with a student, I would spend time getting to know their learning style. We will review what some of my methods are and then get to work.
