Mrs. Lea Borenstein

Mrs. Borenstein works in TABC's Learning Center. She specializes in working with students who experience anxiety around writing, or who find getting started and/or expanding their ideas with details challenging. She has worked in writers' workshops at the elementary school level, as a middle school humanities teacher, as a college-level writing instructor, and as a private consultant in developing writing skills. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at SUNY Stony Brook, where she is completing a dissertation about Black American pop culture, past and present. Mrs. Borenstein's teaching philosophy is based on a multimodal approach that is tailored to students' individual needs and interests, and she plans to bring her understanding of motivation, cognition, and emotion to each student in her classes.
