Welcome! My name is Rachel Sanderson-Graff and I am a high school History, English as a New Language (ENL), and AP Psychology teacher in New York City. I received my Master's in Secondary Social Studies and ENL Education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, one of the top education programs in the country. Before entering education over 6 years ago, I previously worked in marketing and also spent time working as a private English tutor for both Spanish- and French-speaking families and I volunteered as a literacy tutor at elementary schools.
My goal as a teacher and a tutor is to ensure I create an experience that best fits each student's needs and interests. Every person is different, therefore, the way they learn must be different as well. I tailor the education experience to every student I work with in order to best support their academic growth as well as their social-emotional growth. After having worked with a student, I hope I've not only helped them meet the content and skill objectives, but I hope I've instilled a deeper love of learning in them as well.
As your potential tutor, I will create an experience that works for you so you meet your goals. I look forward to working with you!
