Certified English and social studies teacher with seven years of experience offering tutoring in Nassau and Suffolk counties

Methodology

My teaching method is quite student-centered. No matter what skill I teach, I begin by modeling a masterful template for my student(s). I then help the student to practice, gradually reducing my input, so that the student fully develops his or her new skill.

Nothing is better than seeing my students reach their full potential!

Background

I am a certified English (ELA) and social studies teacher based in Dix Hills, NY. Over the past seven years, I have taught in a variety of Long Island school districts and New York City. In that time, I have taught roughly 800 students!

My tutoring career began as a graduate student at Long Island University - Post Campus (where I earned a Masters in Adolescent Social Studies Education). I have continued to tutor privately throughout my career. I specialize in reading comprehension, writing, literature, history, and document-based questions (DBQs). I can work with any student from Grades 6-12!
