Patient, Fun, Well-educated Tutor!
In addition to years of tutoring experience, I majored in child psychology and taught at a progressive preschool in NYC for four years. It was a fantastic experience and, as a result, I know young children inside and out. I also worked as a camp counselor for children (ages 7-14) at a sleep-a-way camp for several years and then became the education director for the camp. I am easy going, patient, and great at connecting with children of any age. I have a great imagination and love to play, as well as engage children and stimulate their minds.
I'm currently taking a few years off in between college and graduate school. I have tons of NY references who would be happy to speak with you! I do part time research at a developmental lab at UCLA and substitute at a private school in the neighborhood.
I'm also great with homework help, music lessons , and language. I specialize in separation (which comes in handy for babysitting!). I love drama and arts, and I can play sports.
I offer homework help, math/English for elementary and middle school, guitar, flute, and DJ lessons (or music appreciation for young children), and Russian. I also teach beginner Spanish and French.
