Mony's Bio

A teacher based in New York City, Mony is a first-generation college graduate and proud immigrant from Bangladesh. She received a BS in human development and education from Cornell University, has trained as a secondary math instructor at American University, and completed an EdM and MA in psychological counseling at Columbia University. She has taught middle and high school math,as well as worked as a college counselor at a specialized science high school in NYC and a school leader in Brooklyn. Currently, she is an Instructional Fellow at Relay Graduate School of Education, where she teaches teachers to teach.

Mony first began teaching as a corps member of Teach For America. Through that training, she had the honor of teaching seventh and eighth grade math in DC at Ron Brown Middle School throughout the school year and geometry in Philadelphia at Simon Gratz High School during the summers. “I loved the subjects, I loved being resourceful, and I loved getting to know my students,” Mony says. As a tutor, Mona has been teaching the SAT, ACT, SSAT, and SHSAT prep since 2016, helping students and their families chart academic progress and overcome systemic inequalities in the education system. Mony has also tutored middle school math preparation for state exams and the Algebra Regents program. “I think success truly ‘takes a village.’ Ultimately, I think all families want what’s best for their children, so I’m happy to work alongside everyone towards a shared vision!” Every test prep student Mony has tutored has improved their scores on exams and received acceptance letters to their first choice college.

When asked about her tutoring style, Mony explains that her approach hinges on transparency as students deserve to know what their strengths and areas of opportunity are. Additionally, she believes that building personal investment through goal-setting is a key aspect of helping students succeed. “I want the students I work with to have a sense of ownership in their learning and progress,” she shares. “I prefer to be as direct and honest about where students are so they can continue to make informed decisions for themselves.”

Due to her contributions to urban education, Mony made the list of Cornell's Top 20 Dynamic Seniors and was simultaneously on the Dean’s List. Her other awards include being the 7th Grade Teacher of the Year in DC Public Schools. While in college, Mony served as a tutor in Ithaca schools, as a Cornell career service advisor, a peer counselor, and as a member of the Bengali Student Association and Hindu Student Council. She prefers her ice cream slightly melted.
