I tutor reading, writing, ESL and art to all ages (children and adults) including those with physical disabilities or learning disorders. I offer homework support, and/or interesting and individualized academic strengthening lessons and feedback. I have taught youth-adults in various emotion/learning and physical disability settings. Besides tutoring, I teach English literacy to foreign speakers at BOCES. I am a NYS and NYC certified teacher. What distinguishes me most from other tutors is I have a Master's degree in Art Therapy. In addition to using books and worksheets, I can offer my clients hands on art activities to reinforce learning or to strengthen weaknesses.
I have taught thousands of lessons in public and private schools, to professionals and in private tutoring. I also taught basic computer skills and PowerPoint on the MS level.
While I taught many years with the general classroom population, I also have much experience with bi-lingual classes, teaching children with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, learning disorders, cognitive delays, physical disabilities including stroke and injury recovery victims, and motivating the "unmotivated" student. Nearly all students respond and learn better if they are involved in a creative tactile and visually stimulating process. Not only as a teacher but as a mother (of a college level student who had an IEP), I can offer insights into advocacy for your child. Additionally we had to advocate for our honor level student.
I am also interested in bridging cultures. Kids to Kids International is Non-profit organization I had a part in forming. As a teacher ambassador, I spent a month in South America where I brought U.S. student-created picture books and school supplies to schools along the Amazon river, the desert, coastal and mountain regions of Peru. I also met with ministers of education.
I offer workshops for professional development to educators, parents, nurses, school social workers and psychologists.
