I resumed voice lessons with Shelley after a 12-year hiatus. I had adopted some bad vocal habits and had lost confidence in myself as a singer.

Shelley has helped me turn all of that around! Because of her professionalism, calm presence, and deep pedagogical knowledge, my range and vocal flexibility have improved immensely. More importantly, Shelley has helped me find my confidence and helped me realize that the vocalist I want to be is within reach.

I would recommend Shelley to anyone who wants to grow as a vocalist!

Over the years, I've attempted voice lessons a few times and always walked away after a lesson or two. Not this time! Shelley has done the near impossible task of making me feel safe and at ease during our lessons. She is incredibly patient, supportive, warm, and hilarious, too! In addition to helping me with breathing and vocal techniques (which I desperately need, as I'm a beginner!) she also takes the time to nurture my emotional needs as well, as singing has always felt very vulnerable for me. She offers me mantras and writing exercises and is such a great listener. I highly recommend Shelley for any and all students!!
Micah P.
Shelley is a positive, professional, and effective teacher. My lessons with her were outstanding!

Every single lesson was tailored to my voice and my skill level. As I progressed, so did the lessons. Shelley prepared every lesson and conducted them all professionally. Over the course of a couple months, I went from not being able to carry a tune at all to singing comfortably and confidently in different genres.

She was excellent at teaching all aspects of voice including the anatomical structures involved and techniques to use the voice effectively.

She made difficult concepts easy to understand and used simple training tools very effectively. When I struggled in certain areas, she understood what my problem was even if I couldn't explain it well and helped me correct it.

In addition to her effectiveness as a coach, she is just a wonderful person and joy to work with. I plan on taking more lessons from her and I strongly recommend her to anyone!

WOULD YOU LIKE FOR YOUR CHILD TO BE ABLE TO READ IN ONLY A FEW MONTHS? These are weekly 45 or 50 minute *PRIVATE* Reading, Tutoring or Full Comprehensive Learn to Read Programs. I use several learning enrichment programs and other supplemental programs that are age and grade appropriate. I love unlocking the mystery of reading through a variety of lovable characters, general games and computer games in bite sized increments that are comforting, exciting and nonthreatening, demeaning or discouraging.

**Adult literacy is also available.**

Monica is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and my son loved her from the first day. She has an easygoing demeanor and she makes math fun for him; she also sends a bunch of worksheets for him to work on in between. My son is entering 4th grade and I wanted him to work on some preview math skills before starting schoo. Monica was the perfect person I was looking for to work with him.

I'm a certified reading teacher. I love books, I love imagination, I love teaching people to "see" their stories, but I also love helping them grow in their ability to read and understand what they've read. When a person struggles with knowing how to pronounce or understand the words, reading becomes too much trouble. This is where I come in. I have strong skills in teaching pronunciation, phonics, letter-sound strengths. I'm very patient and willing to help students every step of the way. Just call on me.
