About this tutor

I love teaching! It has been a passion of mine for a long time! I believe that helping and seeing those aha! moments are so crucial and empowering! I just recently got certified with my NY elementary certification which allows me to teach grades prek-6 in math, science, social studies and English along with special education within the NYS Next Generation and Common Core standards. I have been a tutor for 3 years when I was an undergraduate at my college. I am an active member of Kappa Delta Phi, as well as hold a membership from the National Society of Leadership. 

I love teaching! That is my favorite part of tutoring! I love working with students and having them realize that they finally got it! (That aha moment!). I love watch the gradual progression of their work to be something they are proud of!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I would like to get to know the student and their level before working with them. I want to make sure it is fun and enjoyable for them as we get finished with the work that needs to be done. 

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

I have all my NYS teacher trainings including DASA, blood pathogen and Dignity for All students. I have also done many Personal Development through trainings of a program I am doing at the moment.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My standard pricing is $25 an hour. 

How did you get started teaching?

My mom was a teacher, and I just loved watching her teach. When I was younger, I got to go to her school and see her classroom and meet all of her fellow colleagues. I think it was the first time I fell in love with teaching. I wanted to follow in her footsteps and now, I'm employed in the same school district she is in. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with international students at a college level as well as Prek-6th graders, in addition those in Special Education. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Probably my most recent week and a half subbing adventure when I gave the kids a Christmas party. I had to contact the base teacher and ask if it was ok, but he gave me full reign of the day. The kids had a great time and told me that I did a great job in making the day fun and enjoyable for them as it was the last day til break. 

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

Find a teacher you connect with. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What can I improve on? Where am I most struggling? Can you show me what I need help on?
