NEW! ​At home with child and quarantine? Fret not. Professional, fun, and engaging English lessons are now available online, through ZOOM. Here is what I offer to K-8 students:

English Lessons 

  • Customized curriculum, given the student's level, interests, and other factors
  • Teaching reading and writing with Common Core standards--and much more--in mind
  • Expanding the students' vocabulary by learning and practicing expressive words in context

  • Linking the text to what the child  knows and cares about

  • Looking at how literature is an art, using language and imagery to do make the impossible imaginable

  • Creative assignments, imitations, prompt writing, and age-appropriate essays

  • Experience teaching at private schools and at the university level

$35 / private lesson or $157 for 5 lessons (10% discount); $25 / semi-private lesson (2 students), $20 / groups 

Online Book Clubs 

Worried that your child may not be reading during their "coronacation"? Let me connect them with a friend or two and guide them through some engaging, quality readings in the company of friends who are the same age. I will assign readings based on the students' level and interests and coordinate ZOOM meetings; all they need to do is read and show up online. Here are some sample readings:
  • The Day the Crayons Quit (grades K-2)
  • The Little Prince (grades 3-5)
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (grades 3-5)
  • The House on Mango Street (grades 6-8)
  • Poetry by Adrienne Rich, Layli Longsoldier, Anna Akhmatova (grades 6-8)​

$18 per book club session or $170 per 10 sessions 



Creative ​Writing Workshops 

These workshops focus on harnessing the use of language to express our imagination, helping the student write short pieces about the current situation, and trying out different genres (flash fiction, comic books, poems). 

$25 per student 


Testimonials from past students are available here.
