Hi! I am interested in providing tutoring services for students in Grades 3-12, and at the college level in the areas of reading, writing, English language arts, Social Studies, AP courses, study skills/organization, and ACT/SAT preparations. I have lived in Atlanta for the past three years and currently serve as an Academic Program Specialist for Fulton County Schools. In this role, I support ten schools with K-12 curriculum and instructional needs. This work includes developing curriculum, providing professional development to teachers, coaching teachers and modeling best practices in literacy, and administering reading assessments to determine the appropriate interventions for readers. I will also be graduating this May with my Masters in Literacy Education with a Reading Specialist Certification from Georgia State University with an overall GPA of a 4.2.
Before moving to Atlanta, I worked as a high school English teacher in Charlotte, NC. In this role, I taught Grades 9-12 English, as well as AP English Language and AP English Literature. I received proficient marks on all teacher evaluations, while my students demonstrated high growth on standardized assessments. During this time, I also coordinated our school's ACT preparation program and led a Saturday ACT program for students.
Regarding my own educational experiences, I attended public high school in Miami, Florida, where I graduated in the top 10 of my class. In high school, I took multiple AP courses across various content areas and received a score of a five on all but one exam. I then attended the University of Florida, where I double majored in Criminology and Jewish Studies and minored in Women's Studies. I received an overall major GPA of a 4.0.
On a personal note, I genuinely enjoy working with students of all ages and appreciate the opportunity to be part of a student's journey towards achieving their full potential. I believe all students, with the appropriate support and resources, can be successful. Thank you for your time and consideration of allowing me to tutor for your family.
