The Big Apple's Brightest

I suppose that I was never known as a bad student...not even close. All throughout elementary school I did not receive a grade lower than an "A" and by the third grade I was the only child in my class with an eighth grade reading level. This academic success carried on into high school where I was always in advanced classes, received a perfect score on the writing section on the SAT exam, earned a score of 99 on my New York State Regents exam and went on to earn a full International Baccalaur...

Reading

I have been a passionate reader ever since I was a child; by the third grade I was the only student in my class to reach an eighth grade reading level. In all of my years of being an avid reader I have learned that there is more to reading than knowing what words look like and being able to say them out loud; it is about understanding what is on the page and using context clues and pronunciation techniques in order to be able to read things you may not understand or words you may have never seen before. Knowing these techniques, as well as how to apply them helped me earn a perfect score on the English section of the SAT exam and a 99% on the English Regents exam, the highest in my class. I would love to be able to share my love of reading and the techniques I used to develop and enhance my reading skills in order for someone else to achieve academic and personal success.


Writing

Writing has always been one of my best subjects in school; when I was in the eleventh grade I took my English Regents exam and was astonished when I earned the highest score in my class, a 99%. Despite my nerves before my SAT exam, I was able to achieve a perfect score on the English sections. I truly believe that the best writers are not the ones who write the longest papers, but are the ones who are able to write clearly and eloquently as to get the point across. Once you know the proper format for writing a paper, the rest will come easily as long as you truly understand what you are trying to convey and how you wish to convey it. I would be more than happy to share the writing techniques I use so that you can consistently produce properly written papers that are both clear and engaging.


English

Due to my passion for reading and writing, English has always been one of my best subjects in school; by the third grade I was the only student in my class to reach an eighth grade reading level, and when I was in the eleventh grade I was astonished when I earned a 99% on my English Regents Exam, the highest score in my class. Despite my nerves before my SAT exam, I was able to achieve a perfect score on the English sections. I have learned two really important things about reading and writing: 1) Reading is about more than knowing what words look like and saying them out loud. It is about understanding what is on the page and using context clues and pronunciation techniques in order to be able to read things you may not understand or words you may have never seen before. 2) The best writers are not the ones who write the longest papers, but are the ones who are able to write clearly and eloquently in order to get the point across. Once you know the proper format for writing a paper or an essay, the rest will come easily as long as you truly understand what you are trying to convey and how you wish to convey it. I would be more than happy to share the writing and reading techniques that have brought me much academic success so that you can consistently produce properly written essays that are both clear and engaging, as well as do well on exams that require reading, writing and combining the two.

AutoCAD

I graduated from Pratt Institute, where I earned my BFA in Interior Design. During my four years at Pratt, I used AutoCAD every day for all of my design and building construction classes; I know the program like the back of my hand, maybe even better. Due to my understanding of the program, I had my final thesis project selected to be featured in the 2011 Pratt Show, had many projects selected to be archived by my school and was on the Dean's/President's List every semester. I learned how important it is to decipher the difference between a presentation drawing and a technical drawing, and know when to use them in order to effectively communicate any design. I can teach how to use the tools and commands as well as how to assemble line weights, drawings and technical sheet sets in a clear, legible and professional manner.
