I love teaching. I am an enthusiastic and personable teacher who has established a reputation for quality instruction, curriculum building and classroom management at my school in the South Bronx. I have extensive experience tutoring including experience as a collegiate writing tutor at St. Lawrence University, K-4 Math and Reading tutor for ESL students in Bridgeport, CT and 9-12 Social Studies and Regents Prep Tutor in New York City. I have also written curriculum for 12th grade Participation in Government and maintained an organized and challenging course for my students. As a teacher, I consistently maintained a high "Healthy Teacher" score, a survey which assesses the quality of each teacher's performance from students' perspective. Furthermore, I love the subjects I teach, social studies and writing. I also have extensive experience in public speaking. A little about me: I am a former college athlete, I dabble in acting which I hope to pursue and I enjoy crossword puzzles, running, weightlifting and listening to NPR every morning.
