Thank you, kindly, Miss Marina, for allowing me to work with your wonderful sons!! They’ve been so super responsive and interactive with me for learning music together and have caught on so quickly.

Thanks Demietrius for taking time out of your busy study schedule to let me know how our tutoring time went for you. It means so much to me to hear how I’m helping people and you were such a polite young man and very attentive note-taker in our time together.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I enjoy American History as the stories told of our Heritage through a variety of resources and helping you connect to history within your own life to bring better connections and memory!!

Ballet

Ballet has been my basis of Balance since I took it up at the age of 5, helping me to learn what my core is, making balancing SO much easier and stronger in day to day life. I have studied the art of ballet now for 10+ years in both NJ and CO.

It’s brought me beauty, poise, strength, self acceptance, increased my ability to feel passionate, beautiful, and has given me a love to continue to Dance, ever since, as much as and wherever possible.

I’m truly grateful for the foundation to Life Ballet has given me and the enjoyment and passionate pursuit of Dance In Many Other Forms; Including Tap, Jazz, Square, Hip Hop, Ballroom, Lyrical Worship and Dancing socially throughout my Life.

Studying locally at Dance Institute has reopened my eyes to being able to return to studying dance under the tutelage of Miss Michele and has allowed me the return to the stage last year in The Nutcracker, which has been a dream come true!

Let’s dance!

Bible Studies

I earned a Bible Study Minor during my studies at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood, Colorado, in 1991. I've taught Bible to elementary students at a private Christian School in 1991 and have participated in several Bible Studies in a small group setting throughout the years since my graduation.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hi! My experience in teaching Elementary subjects has taken a vast trip through private, public, homeschooled, and tutoring settings for 20 years! Creative solutions is what I pride myself on in working with you in all levels of Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, Spelling, Computer, Music, Projects with resources that stay with you in-between our learning sessions together. I hope to work with you soon!

English

Ever since I can remember, my mom would correct our English grammar and use big vocabulary which naturally expanded my ability in Writing. Growing up around a poet and a writer helped me to grow to love the English language for all its uses and I so enjoy helping others do the same. I started coming into my own quickly working as a TA--Teacher's Assistant in writing in college-editing, grading, and assisting students to improve their writing skills for all subjects. I look forward to sharing my passion for writing and inspiring you to learn and grow in this vital arena!

Flute

I have played the flute for 30+ years now and it has been a wonderful passion for me to learn and share music! Teaching flute students has been a real pleasure and an eye-opener to how music can help teach you focus and creativity and enjoyment in learning in all other subjects, especially math, and becoming a life-long appreciator of the arts. I pride myself in giving you a positive, patient, private environment to pick up a flute for the first time or to develop more flair with playing the flute for yourself in many settings. I've enjoyed being an integral part of bands, small groups, solos, duets, orchestras and even pit bands for theater shows throughout my career as a musician since 4th grade! I hope we connect soon and enjoy playing the flute together in the near future.

Handwriting

I've had the pleasure of learning and studying handwriting since 2nd grade back in NJ in our public school system. Since I studied to become an Elementary School Teacher here in CO, I expanded my learning and practice to D’Nealian handwriting, a combination between printing and traditional cursive. I've had much success working with students of all ages by giving them tips and time from printing to cursive to even Calligraphy. I look forward to working with you to improve your handwriting in order to form your letters well and impress all with legible writing in all areas of study!

Phonics

My experience in teaching to read through phonics has been in combination with a whole language model that incorporates sounds within words, appropriate age-level reading materials and pieces, and with the help of technology programs, as available. I find that having you as the student help choose pieces that interest you and keep your attention, you are more motivated to learn the keys to unlock your success to reading with confidence!

Study Skills

Since I took a class in study skills in the 4th grade, I have put my organizational skills to great use within my studies throughout my formal educational years and beyond. I've also had the privilege of being trained in teaching Study Skills as a certified subject to several students during my teaching time at Sylvan Learning Centers.

Tennis

I am a certified tennis teacher through the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and have enjoyed playing tennis since I was in elementary school.

My experience began by bouncing a tennis ball against our outside concrete wall during my younger years while playing tennis as part of our PE program in both middle and high school back in NJ.

When I arrived in CO to attend Loretto Heights College, I took the tennis class offered and found out that there were so many more days in CO to enjoy outdoor tennis!

My competitive team playing took place at CCU for my junior and senior years where I was deemed 'Most Improved Player'.

I've taught tennis through the Denver Parks and Recreation City Wide program for a summer as an instructor at Bible Park for students from 5-12 years old and we had fun while learning tennis and drinking lots of Gatorade!

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with dozens of students through OPTIONS homeschoolers program putting the USTA' training and tips to good work with all. I have so enjoyed playing and watching tennis for over 20 years & hope to help you reach your tennis goals.

Tennis Anyone?

Theatre

My love of musical theater, drama, and all things stage started at a very young age when my parents took me into NYC for a matinee. Since I enjoyed taking tap, ballet, and jazz since the wee age of 5, I was immediately enthralled with all performance arts and was inspired to hit the stage running.

First, with dance recitals, then singing impromptu in our living room and for guests, and my 1st theatrical production of Tom Sawyer, getting to play the leading lady.


I have enjoyed sharing my passion of theater with students teaching the basics of theater, acting, performance, as an asst. and director of plays since high school and most recently enjoyed putting on theatrical performances with students up to 30 students at a time!

Not only do I love to perform and practice my craft but also enjoy seeing my students grow and thrive in a supportive and encouraging environment to see their own success! :)

Voice (Music)

I've so enjoyed singing since I was a tot - it came so naturally as a youngster. I progressed into church choirs, solos, NJ All-County, Regional, and State Choir and have used all my singing happily in musical theater and daily! :) If you love to sing, I can join you in growing to take yourself as far as you want!
