About Celeste


Bio

I love words, languages, music, dancing...and people! I would like to help elementary-high school aged kids maximize their potential (and even some college athletes struggling with writing and test-taking). I value people's differences, but try to help them understand why some standards are important and how to master those skills.
I laugh a lot! :-)

Salsa Dancing

Salsa Dancing

I have been dancing Salsa and other Latin dances since 1985. They are so much fun! If you want to add a little fun to your life, or to your dance repertoire, let me help you learn the moves. I have been asked many times if I were from Cuba because of my salsa style, but no: I was born and raised here, and learned salsa right here in P-town too--and so can you! Beginners only, females preferred, as I am female and the males have a different part. I did take a class for teaching salsa as well, but just don't have enough experience doing the "guy" part! :-)

I have tutored students through the Upward Bound program at PSU, as well as privately helped students who were more sports-oriented than academically-minded. If taking tests is very difficult for you, let me show you some strategies and try to boost your confidence. If writing an essay is always last on your to-do list, let me show you some ways to make it easier so you can get it checked off, and on to other things! You can do it!!!

Language

Farsi

Farsi

My bachelor's degree is in Middle East Studies, and I took almost three years of Farsi in college. That was awhile back (!), but if you are maybe dating or already married to a Persian and wanting to get started learning the language to communicate better with the family, I could be of assistance. It is a beautiful language, and Persians are wonderful people! Learn more about the people and the culture by learning the language...

Basic steps and movements in salsa dance. It was very helpful! Celeste is a good teacher, and I would recommend her to others who want to learn how to dance!
