Teaching and Tutoring Experience

I have taught reading, writing, guitar and voice lessons for over 15 years. I love words and helping students to find their own words and methods to make reading and writing a fun and meaningful experience. I believe helping people find themes they enjoy is the most successful way to excel with reading and writing. Caring about a topic is a stronger motivation than getting a good grade. Anyone who doesn't like to read, just hasn't found the right book!

I am a published songwriter (former major-label recording artist) and have also written for magazines, newspapers, grants and websites. I hold a B.A. in international relations from NYU, and spent my junior year at the London School of Economics. I enjoy working with kids and taught for a year at a children's learning center in Pennsylvania. I do professional work in communications helping businesses to define themselves through words via web content, newsletters and social media.

Availability
I am available to tutor students from elementary school age to adults in reading, academic writing, professional writing, spelling, admission essays, fiction, and creative nonfiction. I am also available daytime hours for homeschool students.

I look forward to meeting you!

History

Social Studies

Social Studies

I hold a BA in Political Science from New York University. Much of my coursework related to the study of world politics and diverse cultures. I enjoy working with my son (11 year old) on social studies projects at school. I can often help him with a broader perspective on the subjects he is learning. For me, learning centers around bringing a subject to life through the stories that connect people to a common idea. It is easier to retain information when you care about what you are learning.
