About Alma

My success as an educator comes from my own love of learning, a patient nature which puts students at ease, and creativity in my approaches. My goals as a tutor are to ease students' anxiety related to learning, to transform the learning process to one that is both enjoyable and fits the students' learning style(s), to increase students' confidence and capacity to successfully engage with the subject matter, and, lastly, to improve students' grades and achieve goals set at beginning of tutoring relationship

As a social worker specializing in youth education and empowerment, I offer the skills, experience, and personality traits needed to foster a supportive and fruitful educator/student partnership. As an artist, I offer the creativity and divergent thinking needed when identifying the strategies to make the learning process come to life.

READING: As a proud bibliophile, I will ignite the love of reading in your child. I love to read to and with children and will utilize a variety of approaches to overcome reading challenges with which your child may currently struggle.

YOGA: I am a Children's Yoga Teacher (toddler to teen). I enjoy teaching yoga basics as well as mindfulness practices. These skills can be invaluable when approaching test-taking and learning in general.

COOKING: I am passionate about food, nutrition, cooking, and wellness. I would love to practice cooking skills, teach about nutrition, and delve into any cooking-related objectives with students

ART: One of my earliest memories is the thrill of getting to use my dad's art supplies as a young child (he was a graphic designer). I was about three then and my passion for creating art never waned. As a senior in high school I received a scholarship to take a college level class at Moore School of Art in Philly. Although, I later chose to pursue Psychology and Social Work in undergrad and graduate school, I always made art on the side. As a working artist, I have a small business and work primarily in pen and ink and watercolor. I am passionate about guiding young artists with any medium.

I look forward to building a successful learning partnership with your child!

I have flexible availability as I am currently a FT mom. Weekend sessions are ideal. Public locations, such as libraries, are preferred.

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.

Public Speaking

The most recent positions (2009-2013) I held as a social worker, involved community education, workshop creation and presentation. My roles also included training middle school and high school youth to then create and present their own workshops to peers. I presented workshops inside and outside of the school context, in advocacy settings, and in the context of large trainings.

Yoga

I am a yoga teacher trained at Young Mountain Yoga in New City, NY. I specialize in yoga for children and teens.
