About Jenny

Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended

Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Hello there! I have my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (K-5) and I am extremely passionate about literacy and reading instruction. I am also currently a 1st grade teacher. I used research-based best practice when teaching reading. Younger students will develop strong phonemic awareness (identifying and manipulating sounds orally), phonological awareness (the sounds that letters make), and decoding strategies. For older students, we will work on comprehension strategies, morphology, and critical thinking with texts. I will eventually be pursuing my Doctorate degree in Biliteracy. I also write academic articles in areas involving early childhood education (specifically for English Language Learners and multilingual education). I also speak Italian, Spanish, and Greek.

Reading should be an activity that is enjoyable and exciting! No matter what your age or interest, there are keys for building this important skill and reading well will greatly improve sucess and enjoyment in every school subject!
Children will develop graduated mastery of phonics and phonical combinations as well as sight word recognition. Older children will learn to read for better comprehension and with confidence.
