I am a graduate of The Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York. I received my Bachelor of Science in Marketing. For many years, I worked in the Fashion Industry in New York City. More recently, I have worked as a Paraprofessional in a public school, focusing on students with learning disabilities. I have also worked in a general education setting. My background is with grades K-5. Currently, I teach English as a second language to students in China ages 4-15. I have taught online for two years. I have taught over 300 students and over 1200 classes! It brings me great joy to watch a student's progress! I teach English, Reading, Phonics, Speaking, Vocabulary, Proper Pronunciation, Grammar, Sight Words, and Story Time. I have a TEFL online certificate. I can adapt a lesson to be fun and entertaining for a student by adding games and rewards or I can teach straightforward and serious, adapting to each student's individual style and comfort level. I can scaffold a lesson up or down to practice what the student needs most. I believe that children learn in different ways and I will work with your child to find the best method for him/her. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, reading, yoga, and spending time with my family, my dogs, and my friends at my vacation home in Southern New Jersey.
