Hi,

I love coaching people so that they can express themselves through writing. I like to connect with each of my students to find specific ways to interest them in the writing process and to make writing an enjoyable process. I enjoy variety and therefore work with students of all ages and levels. I believe learning should be engaging, and that learning can be rigorous without being rigid. I am a disciplined and fun person, and bring these attributes to my teaching.

I have a Ph.D. in Education, with an emphasis in improving performance. I am a long-time college instructor and have also worked extensively with K-12 students. I am the mother of two: a sixth-grader and a fourth-grader, so am very involved in elementary school writing at this point in time, in addition to being a first-rate teacher for pre-teens, teens, and adults.

I have found that each student has specific learning strengths coupled with specific learning styles. I work to discover these in my students and to then teach my students strategies to maximize learning in the ways that are most efficient and comfortable for them. Over time, this approach leads to students struggling less with learning the basics and, instead, being confident writers able to synthesize what they learn into original works expressing their understanding of the world.

After we get to know each other, I prefer an ongoing tutoring relationship so that we both have a chance to see the teaching/learning we do come to fruition!

If I seem like someone you would like to study with, or have your child study with, then please get in touch!!

Best wishes,
Dr. J.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

I hold an MFA in Dance and a Ph.D. in Education, both of which have required me to study anthropological aspects of culture from a variety of viewpoints. Related to anthropology, I have studied Anthropology, Medical Anthropology, Art and Anthropology, Dance Anthropology, Human Development, Philosophy of Religions, Chinese/Mandarin, Spanish, German, French, History and Culture. I have taught Dance History, which delves into the anthropological basis of dance, music and culture.

Ballroom Dancing

I have 2 degrees in Dance, a BA and an MFA. I also have a Ph.D in Education. In addition to my academic training I have studied ballroom dance extensively. I have taught Ballroom Dancing at the college level for over 20 years, teaching the following levels: Beginning, Intermediate, Advanced, Ballroom Dance Production, Dance Repertory, and Analysis of Folk and Ballroom Dance. I also teach a college course entitled "Teaching Movement" in which I train others to teach Ballroom dance and other movement forms. My approach is focused on social dance for all levels, and coaching performers.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Ph.D. in Education and a deep understanding about how children learn. This includes studies in childhood development and how the brain works to facilitate learning. I have spent the last 8 years tutoring my own children in all academic subjects at the elementary school level. I have experience with the K-6 curriculum and working with teachers on how to help children not only learn what is needed, but how to do so in a manner that that creates children who are curious and joyful learners.

Fitness

I have a BA and an MFA in dance, which required me to take college course such as anatomy, physiology, motor learning, kinesiology, injury prevention. I have an extensive background in teaching aerobics, personal fitness, general fitness, yoga, several forms of dance, and running. I have taught all ages and abilities. I hold 2 Yoga Certifications, a Ph.D. in Education, and teach college courses for those interested in learning to teach movement.

Salsa Dancing

I am a long-time teacher of Latin American Social and Folk Dance, Advanced Salsa Dance, and Salsa Production in the Dance Program at City College of San Francisco. I hold 2 degrees in Dance as well as a Ph.D. in Education. My students have performed in venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and many have become dance teachers themselves.

Yoga

Yoga Qualifications: I authored and direct the Certificate of Accomplishment in Yoga Instruction at City College of San Francisco. I hold 2 yoga certifications, a Master's Degree in Dance and a Ph.D. in Education...all of which provide me with skills to teach yoga to all ages. My own practice has been consistent since 1975.
