About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect the student to have the instrument they want to learn. Besides piano/keyboard, I would provide my instrument and processors (pedals or macbook) as well. If you want electric guitar lessons, an amp with two inputs (or two amps) would be optimal, but one amp or a macbook with a digital interface would also work. This is not for my comfort, but for the student to be able to practice as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and jazz, but have performed, taught and been around several styles including R&B, Hip Hop, South American Folklore, Pop, Punk, Metal, Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco, Electronic dance and more.
I believe that we're all unique, hence I teach using my own methods. I prefer to get to know my students and teach them what they needed in order to achieve their goals, moving at their own pace instead of following a book's manual. I could also follow and use any book's teaching program if that's what my students or employers would ask from me.

About Me

Hello! I am a Reading Specialist with a Masters of Education from Lesley University and a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education. I specialize in early literacy skills, phonics, phonemic awareness, and comprehension, and also work with students to improve fluency and vocabulary development. I have been professionally trained as a reading interventionist, working with students one-on-one or in small groups. I differentiate instruction for students of all abilities, and strive to provide my students with the right balance of challenge and support to help them reach their goals as readers. I have a strong passion for reading and literacy learning, and am very excited to pass this enthusiasm to my students!

As a published author in poetry anthologies, an online women's health magazine, and author of a successful blog, I also offer writing lessons for children and adults. My background in education and experience writing graduate level research analysis has developed my writing and editing skills, and I am ready to help my students reach their writing goals!

Each Reading and Writing student will receive individualized lesson plans guided by their areas of need and goals we set together. Progress will be monitored through reflective lesson plans and regular progress reports. Reading lessons include support in phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, and fluency, and foster love of quality literature and autonomy.

In addition to academic tutoring services, I also provide parent coaching, nanny training, learning and play space design, and general consultation services to parents and care givers. I have been working with children and families for 12 years, and feel confident that I can provide a high level of expertise, understanding, and enthusiasm necessary to support you and your family. For Early Childhood teachers, I offer training in curriculum design and space planning to support reading development, with a Reggio Emilia influence.

I am also available for dance coaching, with a focus on jazz, pom, drill, and kick. My background in dance includes eight years as a dance student, culminating in a year of leading and choreographing for a dance team. I have experience teaching young children routines, and background coaching dancers through regional and national competitions.

Finally I offer basic sewing lessons. I have been a hobby seamstress for four years, and enjoy drafting patterns for personal clothing and children's toys. I run a successful sewing blog, and have sold items to customers all over the globe.

I am a strong teacher with a diverse background who believes promoting inquiry and critical thinking. I am enthusiastic, hardworking, and flexible, and I look forward to hearing from you!
