Reading, Writing And Phonics Tutor
I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University as a K-12 Technology Specialist in 2017. Immediately upon graduating, I began tutoring with Varsity Tutors, as an in-person reading, writing and phonics tutor. My Varsity Tutors roster consisted of elementary school students, ages 4-12 years old. In September of 2018, I began working as a Substitute Teacher in elementary and high schools throughout New York City. In April of 2019, I obtained a permanent Teacher's Assistant position at the Bronx Academy of Promise.
I have been teaching in some capacity since 2002. I find that tutoring encourages a more personal relationship with students, allowing one to employ more of their own teaching style. Tutors also have the opportunity to work with a more diverse group of students.
Students of all levels should feel confident that I will help them improve their skills. I utilize real world situations in my teaching, so my lessons are focused, challenging and exciting.
