Personal Statement

After working for fifteen years in the television production and film industry Judy decided to focus her strong writing and verbal skills on helping young people strengthen their reading and writing skills. She has been a college adjunct at various colleges since 2011 and has been preparing high school students for the verbal components of the ACT, SAT, and ISEE since 2014. Her career began in 1989, when she was accepted into the selective NBC Page program and had the pleasure of working on NBC’s Late Night with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and Today. She assisted the Executive Vice President of NBC News in gathering background footage for major end-of-cold-war events such as the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Russian coup that ousted President Michael Gorbachev. In 2002, Judy decided that her strong written and verbal communication skills would be put to best use in the classroom helping young people with reading and writing. She became a certified elementary teacher and taught English in middle schools at Jersey City and Newark public schools. In 2010, she earned a master’s degree in reading specialization and became trained in the Orton Gillingham and Wilson multi-sensory reading programs. She is most in her element when preparing teens and young adults for entry into college programs. She is an adjunct professor teaching developmental reading at Kean University and developmental writing and grammar at County College of Morris. Students find her engaging and patient.
