I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and I just completed my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.
Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!
I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and inco

If you have a piano or a good keyboard, I can teach at your home.
As a teacher, I draw on my professional experience as an actor and singer, my teaching background in myriad subjects (Feldenkrais, Music Together, general music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my eclectic training in acting, classical voice, musical theatre, various methods of body work, and healing.
I strive to create a working environment where students feel safe to take risks, learn to challenge themselves, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body
Though I have a long background in performing arts and performing arts education, my teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, learning and change... based on sound principles of physics, neurology and physiology, and the conditions under which the nervous system learns best." (The Feldenkrais Institute, NY, NY, 2013).
- Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement Teacher

Finding mastery in practices of music, acting, and mindfulness have core similarities - when you find your flow, it feels like flying. But we have to start from the ground up. The stronger the foundation, the higher you fly. Let's get started!
Notes on teaching locations:
- HOME STUDIO: For a number of reasons, I prefer to teach at my home studio whenever possible. I have two friendly cats - hope you aren't allergic!
- ONLINE: For some students, online lessons are very effective, but for others, it is imperative to meet in person. So if you would like to try online lessons, please message me first to discuss,

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.
Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.
I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public spe

I have always loved teaching my native tongue to people so they can be part of a rich culture and enjoy the profound and vast literature that comes with it. I believe in the joy of communicating with others and be able to see the world in different colors and perspectives.
I began teaching Spanish to friends at my college and that's how my journey with teaching the language as a freelancer began. My approach focuses on the conversational aspect with fun and educational icebreakers as well as grammar and structure.
I love playing the ukulele, painting in watercolor, reading sh
I started my teaching career by volunteering in a educationally undeserved school in Beijing. Until recently, I gained more experiences from teaching in public schools in NYC.
I can be a nerd sometimes but I'm fun and easygoing. I love New York City and I love delivering my knowledge in English language to people in need. I hope you can join me to explore English as a second language and discover NYC so that you are able to overcome difficulties academically and able to be a cool New Yorker.

I'm native italian speaker born and raised in Italy.

Learning language means to learn about culture.
I have taught students of every age and with different needs between children who learn by playing games and adults who want to acquire a language for their different goals.
Reading is a fantastic way to work on your Spanish skills! Take a look at these recommendations for famous Spanish authors by Fairfax, CA tutor Jason N. before you head to the bookstore... Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the world. For native English-speakers, learning Spanish requires the constant input and output of the four main manifestations of language: speaking, listening, writing, and reading.
