...As an elementary teacher, I looked for ways to make math fun, interesting, and relevant for my students. I'm able to bring those same strategies to the students I tutor. My goal is to help my students see that math is a type of puzzle and a game.

...I am very passionate about languages and helping people communicate. I recently returned from Santiago, Chile where, for almost two years, I earned my certification to teach ESL, and utilized this certification to teach ESL publicly and privately. Teaching ESL required that I hone my tutoring skills based on what was best for each student I helped.
I have been teaching for thirty-four years; and, during that time, I have tutored students from six years of age to adult professionals. My experience for the most part has been in language schools in and around Philadelphia. I worked in Center City for four years at Inlingua, where I trained foreign executives in English as a Second Language and American business people in German.
I am a certified Special Education and English teacher. I taught in the Philadelphia school district for 13 years, working first in elementary school and then in high school. I enjoy working with young people and helping them gain confidence in their grammar, reading and overall English skills.
...In undergrad, I decided to pursue English Literature as my major. During the day, I am employed as a Social Worker and I spend my evenings and weekends tutoring, I have been working with middle and high school students for over ten years. After completing my Master's degree in Higher Education at Drexel University last year, I began tutoring and proofreading for college students.
