About the Instructor


As a lifelong learner and product of New York City public school education, I place a high value on the doors that education can open for those willing to seek it. My role, as instructor, is to help our students along the path to becoming global citizens and key contributors to society. By creating an environment where students are excited to learn, I focus on the journey my students take, at least, as much as the destination. Additionally, I partner with Kumon families to enable continuity of instruction in between the Center and home.

Training and Certification

As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.
