About Jessica

I am a dance specialist with ten years experience, who also has a strong passion for language arts. I have extensive experience teaching in the public schools as a teaching artist and a substitute teacher, as well as a consultant for curriculum development, frequently in dance residencies which combine the Arts with ELA curriculum to provide students with a creatively stimulating approach to literacy. I also teach ballet and modern dance at multiple conservatory-style studios, from beginner to advanced. I have experience teaching private lessons in dance, as well as one-on-one consulting with students struggling to write papers on all topics. I have a unique approach which tailors to each students individual interests and talents while developing strong skills.

Schools I have taught at include Professional Performing Arts High School, Talent Unlimited High School, LaGuardia High School, Lehman High School, Tampa University, The Ailey School, and a host of NYC elementary schools. I have also hosted my own summer programs in the arts for students who want to enrich their knowledge of the performing arts world in an intensive enrichment atmosphere.

I have a deep love of the English language as well as creative writing and American literature. I scored an 800 on my verbal SATs and received awards for my writing both on the high school and college level. I have extensive experience assisting students to craft topical papers on any subject, as well as experience writing grants, curriculum outlines, and creative pieces. I also combine literacy with my dance education work.

I am an experienced ballet and modern dancer with supplemental experience in yoga and Pilates. I have taught students from the beginner to professional level at prestigious dance institutions such as the Ailey School, Centennial Youth Ballet, and many private studios. I am certified in the American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum.

I am eager to schedule sessions with students who wish to improve their reading, writing, or dance skills. Please feel free to contact me for more information.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.
