All of Ascenza’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Ascenza’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

ADD/ADHD

While in college and graduate school, I spent a great deal of time exploring options for teaching to students with learning disabilities. I took extra classes in special needs education, and spent six months in a Mixed First grade classroom which had general education and special needs students in order to further my understanding of working with students with ADD/ADHD, among other special needs. I also have extra knowledge gained by living with two family members who had severe ADD. My sister was diagnosed at age 8. We spent time both at home and attending workshops with her psychologist as a family throughout her time in K-12 grade to help her find coping strategies and do better. My husband also has ADD and did his Master's of Psychology thesis on the subject, and I helped him by offering an educational perspective, and he has imparted a great deal of knowledge to me on the psychological implications. I understand it takes a great deal of patience, and very much enjoy helping students who need the extra help.

Composition (Music)

I have a Bachelor's of Music in Music Education. I spent all four years studying music theory and the elements of music composition. I am highly skilled in studying and combining elements of music for the purposes of beginning composition.

Dyslexia

While in college and graduate school, I spent a great deal of time exploring options for teaching to students with learning disabilities. I took extra classes in special needs education, and spent six months in a Mixed First grade classroom which had general education and special needs students in order to further my understanding of working with students with various learning disabilities, including Dyslexia. I also have extra knowledge gained from my husband. He is a psychologist who specialized in ADD/ADHD and Dyslexia. He also has Dyslexia himself. I understand it takes a great deal of patience and very much enjoy helping students who need the extra help.

Elementary (K-6th)

I tutored elementary students while I was in college, specifically focusing on study habits, writing, reading and math. I spent four months working with an elementary classroom in a practicum setting as part of my Bachelor's degree. I worked for five months as a student teacher in a First Grade inclusion classroom as part of my Master's degree. I am familiar with NYS and NJ elementary education standards in all subject areas, and have developed methods to help students develop their skills and increase their knowledge.

Public Speaking

As a trained musician, actor and educator I am highly accustomed to performing in front of an audience. Public speaking skills are very similiar to acting skills, and I always include that in acting and singing classes. I have built Public Speaking curricula and use the important techniques in beginning acting classes. I have multiple methods and a great deal of experience at my disposal to help train students in these techniques, regardless of the subject matter.

Speech

Good speech skills are very similiar to good acting skills. As a trained educator and actress, I have spent a great deal of time including techniques involved in speech in my curricula. I have worked with friends and students to help them be more confident when giving presentations, speeches, public readings, and various other venues. I am trained in effective speech techniques, breathing for speaking engagements, and proper speech organization.

Voice (Music)

I have a degree in Music Education with an emphasis on Voice. I studied voice professionally for 6 years, putting particular emphasis on singing in multiple musical genres. I am highly qualified in hearing and correcting vocal imperfections, breathing, and good vocal technique for the health of the voice.
