Tutoring and Enrichment

 

 

Tutoring

Mountain Community Montessori School is now offering individual instruction in mathematics and language arts. My approach utilizes a Montessori philosophy and beautiful hands-on learning materials to connect with each child where he or she is at and draw out your child's natural interest and capabilities. Whether your child is homeschooling/unschooling or enrolled in a traditional school, this special one-on-one time could help them develop their strengths and overcome any challenges attributed to

skill gaps or lack of confidence. Let's get started!

Music Lessons

Every child deserves a chance to explore music in a joyful and creative way. I specialize in planting the seeds of interest that can lead to a lifelong connection to music and song. We will explore many rich traditions of music, from world folk to classical, and develop an embodied understanding of the basic elements of music through games, movement and singing. We will build a common language that can then be used to develop your child's own songs or songs they love with the addition of a range of instruments. As students advance they may gain the opportunity to record their own music or arrange their songs for groups of other young musicians. I bring years of experience as both a song-creator and a trained music teacher to this work. Pop music is not my specialty, although I do draw repertoire from some contemporary traditions. I seek to expose each child to music they might not otherwise hear.
