"I am a credentialed teacher with over 15 years of experience. I have an M.A. in Teaching from the University of Southern California (Multiple Subject/K-6) and a B.A. in Music, with a minor in Sociology, from Pomona College. I have taught music lessons from age 3 to adults privately, in public schools and after-school programs since 2002. As a substitute teacher in the public schools, I taught primarily by request of the teacher or school in all subjects, pre-K to 6th grade, general and special education classrooms.

As a tutor, I particularly enjoy helping others write personal statements, bios, and application essays: I enjoy the process of hearing you tell me about what you have done and what you want to do, then helping you craft that into a statement that reflects your unique self.

No matter what the subject, my focus has always been on finding the unique strengths of each individual student, and building on those strengths to approach areas of struggle. I enjoy working with students with diverse learning styles and discovering the unique ways each student takes in and understands information. I firmly believe that everyone is smart in their own way, and I love to discover and appreciate each student's way of learning and thinking. I believe that we all construct our own knowledge through experience - we learn by doing, by experimenting, trying, and experiencing - and I encourage my students to try out and adjust their own strategies, instead of expecting them to do it my way.

I am an artist, writer, and trained community mediator, and worked for 8 years as teacher and Curriculum Specialist at a secular, cultural Jewish Sunday school, where I mentored students in researching, writing and presenting unique non-religious Bar and Bat Mitzvah presentations, and officiated their ceremonies. Currently I am in the Jewish Studies graduate program at IU." less...
