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.
