My work with youth programs since 2008 and experience in tutoring, along with my studies as a psychology major (Psychology Bachelor of Arts, UCSC) and my work in public and private school settings as a tutor, teacher and music/theater director, have given me valuable insight and skills essential to fostering students' acquisition and utilization of knowledge. I believe we all learn in different ways and at different rates, and I aim to vary my methods of teaching based on each individual's needs while maintaining structure and cohesion to my lesson plans.
From a young age, I have also exhibited a passion and aptitude for music, and I enjoy sharing this love and knowledge of music with persons of all ages and skill levels, offering lessons in voice, violin, theory, guitar, ukulele, and piano, while also offering tutoring in math, writing skills, and a variety of other subjects, including psychology, and feminist theory. I have been passionate about teaching since I was first asked to tutor a fellow kindergartener in counting and math skills. I love to show people how things work, breaking down work into simple steps, while guiding them to utilize such processes and critical thinking in applying acquired knowledge to new problems and concepts. I hope to bring all my skills to the table to help you or your student succeed.

Knowledgeable and Patient
Madeleine was very patient with me. She is knowledgeable and observes the student, me, to better suggest the type of exercise and for how long they should be done. She showed me some practice exercises, and I was able to play an easy little song in one lesson.Lily, 9 lessons with Madeleine

Wonderful and patient tutor
Madeleine has already taught my daughter so much! She is knowledgeable in guitar and is able to meet her right where her skill level is and challenge her just enough. We are so pleased that we found her and will definitely continue with lessons.Heather, 35 lessons with Madeleine
Madeleine was able to keep my very scattered 11 year old on track and assess her skills well in our first lesson. Will definitely be booking again!Sara, 1 lesson with Madeleine
Very patient and professional
Madeline is so patient and calm with my 10 year old daughter. She keeps her on task and focused, which is impressive on its own. She also really understands how to teach, not just the subject material, but also some helpful learning tools that I feel confident will carry with my daughter throughout her schooling years. Madeline is just great!Dominique, 6 lessons with Madeleine
Each of our 9 th grade boys met with her. English is hard for them but they responded very well to her and she was very knowledgeable and direct at getting them to think and work. We are so hopeful that she will help them improve their skills this year.Peggy , 28 lessons with Madeleine

We discussed 4.1 and 4.2, practiced solving linear inequalities, reviewed inequality sign rules and how to translate word problems, and solved and graphed linear and compound inequalities.Randy, 20 lessons with Madeleine
