About Celeste

I'm a teaching assistant at a private k-8 in DC in second grade. I have been a substitute teacher for the past few years at the same school. Working in math, music and homeroom classes. I've worked with kids on reading improvement, basic math skills, music, performance and speech in the classroom. As well as being theatre teacher/teaching artist for the past 10 years, and know that communication skills are essential to success in other subjects.

Learning can be tricky when based on one set of rules, my goal is to find the best strategy for each student. Learning should individual and I want to help personalize for students. Depending on the subject and the need in that area, my goal would be to come up with a plan that best fits the student and move forward from there, knowing that flexibility is the key to a successful approach.

I want everyone to learn with confidence, and find the right strategy and skill is the foundation to get there.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm currently working as a teaching assistant at a k-8 school. Prior to this, I was a regular sub in math, homeroom, music and sciences classes for all grades. I have a general knowledge of concepts introduced in k-6 and am confident in my ability to find workable strategies for students of these ages.

Theatre

I graduated with a degree in Theatre Arts-Acting. I've been acting professionally for over 10 years. I have also been a drama teacher and director.

Celeste tutored our twins to help them develop strategies for 2nd grade math skills. She walked them through worksheets, and helped them learn in progressive stages. The twins give her four thumbs up!
