I tutor all ages (children and adults) including those with physical disabilities or learning disorders. I offer homework support, art lessons, and/or interesting and individualized academic strengthening lessons and feedback. 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 as a private home school teacher/tutor that are always customized to the needs of the students. I also taught basic computer skills and Power Point on the MS level, grammar, writing, English, elementary math and visual art.
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 student who had an IEP and one in honors classes - not that they are exclusive), I can offer insights into advocacy for your child from both points of view.
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 there and members of the World Bank trying to gain support for educational programs to the poor.
I offer home school arts lessons and home-bound arts and crafts visits.
I am a professional development presenter for educators, parents, nurses, school social workers and psychologists.
