HobbiesIn addition to working in the field of education for over twenty years, I am a writer and filmmaker. My short films have screened in festivals worldwide.
What I love about working individually with students is the opportunity to get to know them and understand the complexity of their challenges. In this way, I can create an approach to learning that specifically addresses the student’s needs, intellectually and emotionally. I am sensitive, compassionate and open-minded, and believe it is important to inspire my students and help them fulfill their personal and academic potential. As a starting point, I teach my students how to think analytically and creatively, as this integration of reason and ingenuity are the foundation of a successful academic career.
I specialize in English literature and grammar, writing, college essays, American and world history, film studies and ESL. I also teach the PSAT, SAT, and TOEFL.
I’d love to hear from you. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to talk.
