Since 2009, Think & Write has been committed to enriching the minds of its students, focusing not only on academics, but also on student’s character development, guiding students and parents toward the appropriate path. Think & Write has widely been recognized as one of, if not the most effective private education centers on Long Island.

As an educator – as a director, teacher, mentor, and consultant – I have dedicated and continue to devote myself in creating meaningful relationships with students, faculty, and parents: relationships from which great learning and impacts can arise. With care and passion, our strongly committed faculty engages every learning moment in the development of student knowledge, skills, mindsets, and character. We meet every student in pursuit of individual and cooperative excellence. Thus, our goal is to send Think & Write students, as lifelong learners with tremendous well-being, into the world to serve the greater good.

I hope you find what you are looking for and visit this site often, as we continuously update it to provide you with the most current information. I look forward to hearing from you whether by a compliment, a suggestion or a complaint.
