My Story

Having been a special education teacher in the Brookline Public Schools from 2010-2021, and the lead teacher in the middle school language-based program from 2013-2021, I taught daily small group English Language Arts and Orton-Gillingham lessons. 

My passion is teaching reading and writing to help students feel more confident in understanding their world and communicating with others. It is my belief that each student has a unique learning style, and I am driven to find out what that is and personalize my lessons accordingly. From day one, my students feel more confident in their abilities as well as a sense of relief that someone finally understands the way they learn.
