TEACHING EXPERIENCE

A public school graduate myself, I've spent 6 years teaching high school in NYC, in courses ranging from intensive reading for struggling readers to honors, freshman to seniors. Included in those courses have been a college application preparation component, grammar instruction and arts integration, in addition to the standard literature, vocabulary and writing.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I really enjoy my students and their individuality and try to address that in the way that I plan and teach. I think my teaching style could be classified as progressive with clear structure, but I like to take the best practices and materials of many methods and integrate them into my work.
