I have been an Early Childhood Educator for over 10 years. It is my belief that young children learn best while playing and interacting with other children. Play, therefore, is a child's work. Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, problem-solving, physical, cognitive and emotional skills. Children advance cognitively by engaging in naturalistic hands on exploration of their real world. While children are having fun singing songs, listening to stories, using their imagination, creating and exploring, they are also building their academic skills! Let your children come play and develop a love of learning at Tutor Time of Lindenhurst. I look forward to meeting everyone.
Since I have been in high school, I knew I wanted to work with and teach children. I graduated from Saint Joseph's College with a Bachelor's in Child Study in both Elementary and Special Education from birth through grade six. I also have my minor in English. I was a Lead Pre-school Teacher for three years and a Kindergarten Teacher for two years. In my eyes, every teacher can touch the life of a child, even in a small way. I feel that not only is it important for our team to teach our children, but also comfort and nurture them in any way possible. I am so happy to have this opportunity as Curriculum Director at this amazing company and I look forward to meeting all of our amazing families here at Tutor Time of Lindenhurst!
I have a Bachelors degree in English Education from CW Post. I have worked with children young children in a high school child study lab program. I also have been babysitting for the past 11 years. I live at home with my mother, father, and younger sister. I enjoy hanging out with friends, reading and exploring new places.I enjoy working with children because I love watching them grow, learn and experience new things every day. I look forward to meeting each and everyone one of families, and am excited to see your children grow in leaps and bounds!
I have had the wonderful opportunity to work in all sorts of educational settings for most of my adult life. I obtained a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from New York University and since then began working in both special and general education settings with a specialization in preschools. Most recently, I worked as an Education Researcher/ Assessor on an exciting project called Ready to Learn where we investigated the influence of media on mathematical skills at the preschool level. Throughout all of my academic and professional endeavors, my personal mission has been to support and encourage an optimal learning experience for each and every child. I believe that a holistic and multi-sensory learning approach works best to enhance development in all domains. That is why I love working for Tutor Time! Our unique curriculum focuses on all aspects of development and incorporates both challenging and fun activities to explore and promote our skills in all areas. We celebrate uniqueness yet also come together for a truly FRUITFUL and fun learning experience day to day. I am very excited and honored to be your Curriculum Director of the Young Learners’ Program and to be a part of the Tutor Time team!
