For as long as I remember, I've wanted to be a teacher. I taught everything I knew as a child and I feel blessed to have been able to end up in a vocation I am passionate about. I presently teach at a local Montessori school and have a versatile background in teaching.

I am an undergraduate in Science and I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and a Bachelor's in Education. I did Geology for a year at the graduate level and then transferred to English Literature. I specialized to teach Social Studies and Language to High School students. I taught High School for four years and was nominated the best teacher in my school for two years in a row, I got awards for developing great Teaching aids and for using technology effectively in the classroom. I coached many extra curricular activities when I taught at school including "How to Swim" and singing.

I am a music lover and a passionate educator. I am licensed to teach Kindermusik, so I could do music as more than a hobby, I teach piano to students, in my home studio and have two students I teach in other states through Skype too! I keep learning and growing and always make sure I am a subject expert, in the areas in which I tutor. I study college level courses at home consistently and have been doing that for years for continuing education. I love to learn!

I am a passionate teacher and will do more than my best to see my students be the best at what they seek to learn. I use technology, online resources and teaching aids that suit each individual learner and go way above the call of duty to do my best by my students!

I have taught all possible learning styles and ages and have learned that what it takes to be a good teacher is patience, love for your learner and dedication to learn and get beyond all obstacles to learning to accomplish mastery. I individualize instruction and am fabulous at getting good resources to children so they can maximize their learning. I am very dedicated and have very high standards for my students. I give them more than their money's worth, always. My students, many of who are in their twenties now, still tell me how much the unique way I taught impressed them and impacted their lives. They contact me and we stay friends for long after the teacher-student relationship is done. I have great people skills and keep students aware of their learning with assessments and self assessments constantly as we go through our learning together. I teach students to take ownership for their learning and give them a passion for learning, teaching them that anything learned in depth brings great joy. Even though learning is hard work it is satisfying in a way nothing else is! I leave my students with a quality education because I know the role a good teacher can play in the development of learning. It's a crucial role and I take this role seriously, while imbuing my teaching with fun and joy and excitement.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Education. I taught English, French, and social studies in high school for 4 years.

General Music

I worked as a music teacher in school for a while. I got licensed in early childhood music through Kindermusik. I ran a Kindermusic class teaching kids from pre-school to seven years old. I studied piano since I was seven. I belonged to an Acapella group and sang ever since I was little.

My entire family is musical. My brother played jazz drums, my sister, classical guitar. My dad was a Jazz bassist.

I continue to grow as a pianist with a piano mentor who graduated from Julliard and did a stint at the Royal College of Music, London.

I study college level music courses, through the Teaching Company ( Great Courses ). I teach piano performance.


I have a bachelors in English Literature and a Bachelor's in Education. I have successfully passed the Praxis and I am studying to give the Praxis II exam in NJ.

I tutor kids in K-7 subjects and prepared my own son for the ISEE Middle level.

I did my 11th and 12th grade science and am a writer with published poetry.

I am presently doing advanced studies in mathematics on my own to complete a degree in mathematics online. I am a self-directed learner and I love to teach.


I am an advanced level pianist engaged in continuing education in Piano Performance with a Juillard College Graduate and Royal College of London Scholar. I have been playing the piano since I was 7 and have in the last 5 years or so focused solely on Teaching/Studying piano performance. I am also a Kindermusik educator and especially gifted in motivating kids to learn.

I am a passionate teacher and have a very high standard for my goal is to create artistic musicians with a whole range of capabilities.


Here is one of my poems:

Luray Caverns

by Priti S.

A rusty netherworld,
Enter the world of 'The Pilgrims Progress'
Jagged spikes suspended overhead
moist upsurges of rock below
An alien world of optical illusion;
Dream lake and Ghost column
Wishful coins glimmer in green water
Limestone icicles; stained cascades & drapes
Gothic water creations.
