I have worked as a NYC public school teacher for the past 4 years. I am certified in Common Branch Grades 1-6, Teaching Students of Other Languages and Social Studies 7-12. I have worked in the school system for 4 years. During college, I was an after school counselor and assisted kindergarten students with their homework.
I am well-versed in helping students who are struggling in reading and writing. I am also knowledgable in math.
I LOVE helping children learn and watching them progress. I have wanted to be a teacher since I knew what a teacher was. I enjoy working with children and individualizing instruction to help meet their specfic needs.

First, I would get to know a bit about the student - how old they are, what they like and dislike as well as their feelings about school. Then, I would provide a basic reading and writing assessment to see what level the child is currently on as well as what areas I can be most helpful in.
I am licensed by New York State to teach grades 1-6, English to speakers of other languages as well as Social Studies to grades 7-12.

I have wanted to be a teacher since I knew what a teacher was. I have always loved learning and loved going to school. Growing up I throroughly enjoyed helping my friends with their school work. I have always been a teacher at heart.
I have worked with students ranging from the ages of 4-12. My students at work are English Language Learners. As a result, I have become very knowledgable on how to assist struggling readers and writers whether they speak another language or not. I have also worked with many students who have learning disabilites although that is not my area of expertise.
I had a student this year who was extremely shy. She came to America in the middle of last school year and was not really speaking much English yet. With my very limited Spanish skills, I was able to coax her into participating in class in whichever language she felt most comfortable. She began the year speaking in Spanish and slowly began to speak more and more English. Her reading level skyrocketed and she began to write extensively. Best of all, she became more confident in herself and that allowed her to take risks in her education and become successful.
If you are an elementary student struggling with reading or writing, I am the perfect person to help you!
