    NKE has been an amazing experience for my child. The amount of support he receives from his teacher is incredible. He has become more confident with speaking his mind. His reading level continues to grow. I want to thank everyone that’s a part of this program! His teacher has made an impact in his life! Thank you!

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have personally worked in the NYC school system more than 15 years and in the NC school system for 3 years. I became a certified special education teacher acquiring experience to help students with varied disabilities (Dyslexia, Autism, ADHD, Learning Disabilities). During my time in these respective school systems I was also a private tutor.  I am now able to successfully close the reading gap a full year with 12-16 sessions!

How did you get started teaching?

While employed as an A & R Executive, I began to volunteer in the elementary school I attended as a child.  I quickly fell in love with transforming kids lives and making a true impact. I began to see how great the need was for educators who truly cared.  This was a dramatic life change for myself as well as my children in every aspect. 

I began as a Teacher's Assistant and needed to return to school for my degree and then take the exams to get my certifications.  I took part of a program that guaranteed me a position in the school system as I worked toward my certifications. 

During this time I was able to help many struggling students and their families.  I began to thrive more in my new love.   At the same time as this passion grew I bgan to realize that their were still so many more students suffering academically and emotionally that I was not able to reach.  I could not reach them due to class sizes growing, the intense need of some of my students and feeling overwhelmed by admins demands for administrative duties.  I began offering afterschool support to my students.  I also began conducting research on closing the reading gap.

The understanding I gained gave me courage, strength and a desire to support students in other areas.  This is how I began offering tutoring to other students through different agencies.  I conducted private tutoring online and in person beginning in 2010.  After some time I departed 100% from the school system and became a full time private tutor.   

I relocated to Charlotte and learned that same intense need exists in Charlotte as well.  After the pandemic hit I returned to providing online tutoring services 100%.  In 2021, I separated from the NC school system.  I love what I do because I am able to make a great impact with each child on their journey to skilled reading!


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students at all levels but took a special focus on students who struggle with reading.  As I worked more with these students I learned to look through their lenses.  This gives me new opportunities to generate new ways to help their little brains grow.   


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One event I am most fond of is a 4 year old student I was working with that was diagnosed with Autism.  He was not able to talk at all.  Moms request was simple "I just want to hear him say momma"

I worked really, really hard with this student and utilized multiple creative strategies.  After seeing him for 8 weeks we made some progress.  In one of our sessions, mom walked past and went into her bedroom.  The student called out "momma" "momma!"

The mom ran over and hugged him so hard as she cried.  She then hugged me so hard as she thanked me.  He began to speak more and more.  He was able to enter kindergarten needing resource services for speech rather than placement in a special education classroom full time. 
I spoke with his mom recently and learned that he is 100% in a general education classroom. Though I have not worked with this student in years, his parents said that I made there dreams come true.

These small tokens of appreciation make it all worthwhile 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

While I would address the level of experience, education, etc I would focus more on a tutor who connects with my child; someone who has patience and can provide a true solution to my child's need .  I would make sure the person truly has my child's best interest at heart and will not feed off of the need of my child or my intense desire to have an answer to the problem at hand.
