Patient, Knowledgable, and Certfied Teacher and Professor

Hi- I love working with people one-on-one. I have an arts background and have been in the high school and college classroom for nearly 10 years. I am a NYS certified in English 7-12 teacher. I left K-12 teaching and have been teaching on the college level for the last 7+ years. I am frequently in NYC and Miami and tutor between the two places. An important note: I am an educator and teacher and those ethics shape my tutoring policies. I will function in this same manner in lessons with yo... [more]

Elementary (K-6th)

I took a number of elementary preparatory classes while studying for my MS Ed. I also worked at an elementary school as a permanent substitute and K-2 library teacher.


Study Skills

As a middle and high school teacher, I frequently take time away from the actual subjects to work on time management and HOW to study (opposed to - just do it). Middle and high schoolers often know that they need to study but just don't know how.


Web Design

I am a self taught web designer. I know HTML 4 and 5, CSS, Photoshop for graphics, some Flash, and can edit Cold Fusion. From 2002-2005, I had a design business in my services included web design for small businesses (eCommerce not included).


Adobe InDesign

I have worked for a publishing company using InDesign. I am also currently laying out a high school yearbook in InDesign.


Desktop Publishing

I have worked with Quark and InDesign professionally as a designer and layout technician for a publishing company in NYC. I am currently laying out a yearbook for the high school that I teach at in InDesign.


Macintosh

My first Mac experience was in 1991 with OS 6.0. Throughout the years, I studied and adapted as the OS and hardware improved. From 2003-2005, I worked for Apple Computer in Soho in regards to sales, customer service and training. From 2005-2008, I worked for Apple resellers with software and hardware support for the photography industry. I can help you from the basics of "how do I find my pictures on this computer" to more complex troubleshooting concerns. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.


Social Studies

While I am officially an English teacher at my school, we often align what we're doing in English to relate to the students' social studies curriculum. We worked on a 6-week-long Election project this year, and I ended up teaching political content so they could actually understand the issues at hand AND write about them. In addition, we've been doing various 20th century literature projects and connecting them to events in history.


Film

I have nearly 20 years of experience within the still photographic and motion industries. I also have my MS in Media Management from The New School. I have extensive experience editing films in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, and Adobe After Effects along with teaching novice learners to edit in iMovie and Adobe Lightroom.


Graphic Design

I have worked as a graphic and web designer for private clients on and off for the last 20 years. I also have taught graphic design to college students
