I am an avid reader myself, and I have experience with students who have dyslexia, ADHD, or for whom English is a second language, as well as students who may just need a little bit of extra practice/help.
I have a good sense of what aspects of reading are difficult for students, and often incorporate music, rhythm, rhyme, drama/acting, and humor, to help struggling readers.

About Linda

I have been teaching music (guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, recorder, music theory, and classes for toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged children, and adults) for over 20 years. I am also a band/show director at the School of Rock! In addition to teaching music, I also tuto

Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry with a minor in Pre-Health Professional Studies. As a former pre-medicine student, I know the content depth that is important to teach to my students. As I am currently earning my Master in Secondary Education towards becoming a teacher, I am trained in the learning sciences to teach my lessons in an effective and memorable manner. I have experience scaffolding and differentiating lessons. I know how to accommodate and modify lessons based on IEPs. I am also trained in designing Response-to-Intervention to get underachieving students to succeed. I have experience with Highly Gifted, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced Placement classes.

About Diana

Welcome! I am glad to meet you. My name is Ms. Diana, and I will be your teacher. I'm looking forward to helping you on your path towards academic success!

To whom it may concern,
Diana L. Has been an amazing instructor for the past couple of months. She has encouraged me and pushed me to do better in math. She explains the material in different ways to find a perfect fit for me to understand. She’s very cooperative and values teaching. She has helped me in every way possible. She gives session notes so I can study the material afterwards in order to help me retain everything. I highly recommend her teaching!
Cliff
To Whom it may concern, 

I am writing this review because something amazing has been taking place with my child since she's been working with Ms. Diana L.

My Daughter Chelsea struggled for years in math and she lacked mathematical confidence, but since she's been working with Diana her Math skills and confidence have increased dramatically. 

Ms. L. takes a flexible approach to teaching and finding the best tailored approach for her students. I believe this approach is the reason for my daughters' recent success. Diana has only been working with Chelsea for a few months and her test scores and class participation have increased greatly.

I would recommend Ms. L. to any one that has a child that struggles in any area of Math , she has done wonders for my child and I am highly appreciative to her for all her teaching.

Sincerely,
Cliff Lawrence

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.

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. For higher levels, we will work on analyzing articles and fictional compostions to develop critical thinking and creative review.

"My lessons with Laurel have been fantastic! She's very patient & knows exactly how to make everything make sense & how to break things down in order give proper analysis in whatever she teaches from piano to singing to basic music theory. She was able to answer any questions I had in full detail. She's a very warm & welcoming person that loves to teach & can do so very well. I highly recommend her as an instructor. She is with out a doubt, a genius of her craft."
