Experienced Certified Teacher: Italian; English Writing Skills; ESL

It gives me great pleasure to transmit a love of writing to my students. I enjoy crafting short stories, essays, memoirs and poems. Once my students have learned the basics of proper grammar, syntax, spelling and composition, they realize what a wonderful creative outlet writing can be, in addition to being an absolute necessity for school and in the current highly-competitive job market. I teach students at all levels (elementary school, middle school, high school, and college students, in addition to adults who are returning to school or merely wish to improve their writing skills.)

Despite the fact that I can offer assistance in many subjects to students of all ages, my academic credentials and background which include two Master of Science degrees and several years of teaching experience at a college level make me more inclined to work with college and advanced high school students on science (mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology) as well as standardized test preparation [more]

Scientist-Musician with Multiple Degrees and Joy For Tutoring

While there, I discovered an equal drive and passion for the study of jazz, and enrolled in the prestigious Jacobs School of Music after a lengthy audition process. Thanks to my drive to succeed at music and my ability to understand and internalize high-level biology concepts, I graduated with a... [more]
