ABOUT Me

Since I was a child, in South Bend, Indiana, learning has been fun and creative. I distinctly remember being curious about how numbers work together and I share a sense of genuine wonder with my students.

I have always wanted to be a teacher. After a detour into Academia (BA Cum Laude, Cornell University and MA, Sociology, The New School),  I dove headlong into teaching children–Kaplan Test Prep instructor and New York City public school teacher.

In my 17 yrs in the school system, I gained invaluable insight into the intricacies of curricula, programs, teaching strategies, and learning styles.

I am fortunate to now tutor full-time, one to-one and small group, in Westchester and New York City. 

Trainings with Marilyn Burns/Math Solutions, Marilyn Zecher/Multi-Sensory Math, Columbia University The Reading and Writing Project, and Orton-Gillingham/The Institute for Multi-Sensory Education guide my practice.
