Qualifications & Experience

I've had great teachers and mentors in the course of my lifetime, and I've had my antennas out, looking to learn wherever I may travel to and through whomever I may encounter- in fact, I believe there are lessons to be learned everywhere and that there are no chance encounters.
My education in New York City's public schools exposed me at any early age to educators, who were interested in more than receiving a pay check out of life- I want to be THAT teacher for ALL of my students; I care about making a positive difference and usually do so!

Michael Valmas worked with me on improving my written, spoken and understanding of English. As a native Spanish speaker, I really appreciated his caring and patient nature, usually staying with me till I understood something and was able to say it confidently and correctly- even it meant going beyond the time he was being paid for his work.
