I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a solid work background in teaching, training, sales and marketing. As training manager of Gateway Bank in Norwalk, CT, I trained tellers and customer service personnel and gave them the skills to excel in their banking careers. At Greenwich Continuing Education I ran a popular writer's workshop where I helped adult students find their voice and bring it to life in words. Now I am a private tutor and I work part time with the Tutoring Club
in Stamford. I tutor students from the elementary to high school levels in reading, writing, vocabulary, comprehension and basic math. I base my approach on the individual student's interests and needs. My style is goal oriented, interactive and very creative. I am able to improvise when needed to keep a student engaged in the learning process. I make every effort to individualize my approach to each student and help them have a fun and rewarding learning experienc.
I consider it a gift to watch a student learn something new or overcome an obstacle. Education is important and powerful and as a teacher I can make a positive difference in the lives of my students.
