    We could not be happier with the services Valerie provided! She is very thoughtful and knowledgeable and provided significant guidance to support our daughter's speech development outside of our scheduled sessions. She established … More a great working relationship with her, and she will definitely be missed! Your business model is amazing and it was an absolute pleasure working with Valerie. I've referred your organization and Valerie to the Executive Director of our daughter's school and friends/colleagues who are in need of speech therapy services.

    Christina was absolutely wonderful. She went out of her way to win my son over and it worked. He looked forward to her visits and his speech improved so much under her care. She was super flexible and it’s clear she truly cares. We adore … More Christina and we’re going to miss her. Almost sad he improved so much! She’s simply amazing and we can’t say enough how great she is. I would recommend her services to anyone and everyone, without hesitation. Thank you so much for connecting us with her!

    Samantha Dalmas was fantastic! We saw her for a feeding therapy evaluation and while she doesn’t think my daughter needs more feeding therapy sessions at this time, but she gave me lots of tips to try. If my daughter's doctors want … More to see more progress at her next appointment, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Samantha again.

    Aileen was INCREDIBLY helpful to us, both in assessing possible origins of my grandson's food aversions, as well as informing us of various available interventions to consider.
    I can’t thank you and Brooklyn Letters enough for connecting
    … More us with Aileen. In all our feeding therapy journey we have not gotten anything near the kind of benefit that we did from her. Her knowledge, professionalism, and responsiveness have put us on the path of progress with my grandson and has also made us feel genuinely well cared for.
  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters Christine Weiher ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    We were amazed with Allison! She met my son at 2 1/2 years old, not speaking much at all, and over a computer, and she was able to develop a bond and friendship, so much so that he would look forward to his weekly computer time with Allison. … More I was not sure how the speech therapy would go- but we are so happy that we tried it out and continued. It allowed my son to gain confidence in his speech, make a new friend :), and also give him the skills and a bit of understanding of how to shape his mouth or where to place his tongue to make the proper sounds. We were extremely happy with Allison- she was fantastic to work with.
  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters Andrea Saffady ★★★★★ a year ago
    My sessions with Karen have been extremely helpful. My speech has improved tremendously. In fact, I just finished 2 hours of conducting interviews with a consulting client via MS Teams and I have an upcoming conference call. Both my … More neurologist and neurosurgeon remarked about how good my speech is. Much of the day it is perfect, although I still have some rough spots when I get tired or speak too quickly. One of my granddaughters is a speech pathology student at Ithaca College. She sat in on 2 sessions while she was home for winter break, and she was very impressed with Karen.

    We were delighted with Christie. First, and most importantly, our son made great strides under her guidance. So great, that we felt he no longer needed help! She was incredibly patient and kind with him and our son really responded to … More her. Christie was also great with me and my wife. She provided thorough and informative updates on our son's progress and which exercises she was using with him, so we could reinforce what she was teaching him. All in all, we had a fabulous experience with Christie and would highly recommend her.

    We've been working with Theo from Brooklyn Letters for close to 4 months now and the results are apparent; our daughter has vastly improved her speech in a relatively short amount of time. We make "Theo Day" a celebration … More in our house with pancakes for breakfast, and the enthusiasm is matched in the sessions. Theo is fun, patient, professional, and caring, and he gives us the tools to take the lessons beyond the session. Thank you Theo, and Brooklyn Letters, for helping our daughter express herself.

  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters susie tofte ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    The work that Allison P. did with our daughter over the years has been invaluable to us. Our daughter had such a good relationship with Allison, and it allowed them to work really well together - even remotely these past 6 months. This … More year, Allison went above and beyond by helping us throughout the neuropsych eval we did, trying to re-open our daughter's IEP at her school, and eventually landing her at our chosen school. She was in contact with our daughter's teachers, with the neuropsychologist, and made herself available as a reference to speak on behalf of our daughter's learning differences.
    Allison stopped by our house last week to give our daughter cupcakes and say goodbye, and I literally cried with appreciation for what an amazing speech therapist she has been. She has been our daughter's biggest champion. The new families that she will work with this year are lucky to have her.

  • Google review, Brooklyn Letters Kristin Ames ★★★★★ 4 years ago
    Our experience with Theo was terrific. Theo was great with my son. He developed a positive relationship with him based on sincerity, respect, trust and a deep personal connection. In their lessons, Theo was encouraging, creative and kind. … More He helped our son understand how to differentiate the sounds he made when he spoke, and gave him great exercises to practice every week between lessons. Our son was sorry to have the lessons come to an end, but recognized that Theo had helped him as much as possible and it was time for him to stop. Theo explained to him (and us) how to keep working to get the last 5%, and encouraged him to keep working on the exercises on his own. I have recommended Theo to another parent who noticed my son's improvement and inquired for her own son.
    We are all grateful to have gotten to know Theo, and we greatly appreciate all the work he did to help our son.

    "I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Michelle Macroy-Higgins. We are extremely pleased with her work with our daughter. I was so grateful for my daughter to have a speech therapist who is a researcher (specialty in late … More talkers), graduate professor and practitioner. Her expertise was clearly evident in our conversations and work with our daughter. She was very responsive to my questions and often sent articles and other materials about language development that I found helpful. Thankfully, my daughter's speech improved tremendously. Michelle developed such a warm relationship with my daughter. My daughter was always excited to see Michelle and would greet her at the door with a big hug. Lastly, I would add that Michelle always demonstrated empathy with me as a mother who was initially worried about her daughter's language development. I could go on and on about how pleased we were with Michelle's work."

    We were absolutely DELIGHTED with Marsha's services. She was wonderful. We found her to be kind, fun, engaging, very knowledgeable. She provided us with clear instructions and additional written handouts each week. She engaged our … More son with different techniques and toys, and showed us how to use her techniques when we were interacting with him. I actually just texted her on Saturday - Our son finally said "more" - one of the target words we had been working on with her. It was a total joy to hear, and I had to share it with her - she wrote back immediately to congratulate us. I am so appreciative of her expertise, and wish we could have seen her for longer. I recommended her to another family in our neighborhood who is looking for a speech therapist.

TESTIMONIALS

“"Ethan was very happy with the sessions." I could see his increased confidence in Math classes at school. Ethan’s grades were generally improved in his IB maths assessments and his MAP percentile ranking increased from 78 to 87%. During this time, Ethan missed 2 of his 5 school Math classes each week for tennis training. Sam provided the math support we needed at home to cover the curriculum but also worked well to fill gaps in his knowledge from previous years.”

We hired Natalie for summer bridge math tutoring for our son. Natalie was great. She was punctual, friendly, and quickly put our son at ease. We asked her to work on reinforcement of the math concepts our son just finished in 5th grade and she was very knowledgeable of the grade-level material. From my observations, she helped him understand the math concepts better. She worked with us on scheduling around conflicts and was very flexible to schedule sessions so he wouldn't have too much time between sessions. Overall, we were pleased with Natalie and her work with our son. Would certainly recommend her to others and request her services again.

What is Multisensory Math?

MATH TUTORS 3 2

Multisensory math is a three-dimensional sequential way to learn math. Everyone can benefit from multisensory math particularly those who struggle with math.

Orton-Gillingham Approach in a Math Setting

The Orton-Gillingham approach is a multisensory approach to teaching literacy. It involves using auditory, visual, sensory, and kinesthetic elements to help students understand the connection between language and letters or words.

Multisensory math applies the same principles to mathematics instruction. It encourages the use of touch, sight, hearing, and movement–when learning and teaching a new concept. Marilyn Zecher, M.A., CALT, a certified academic language therapist and specialist, speaker, and former classroom and demonstration teacher, expanded and developed this approach further. She applied and combined the Orton-Gillingham Approach with evidence-based practices based on neuro-imaging studies and NCTM and What Works Clearinghouse recommendations.

Zecher emphasizes the language of math, stressing that the language of instruction is crucial during the process of concept formation and developing skills towards application. Multisensory math uses the Concrete, Representational, and Abstract (CRA) instructional sequence and explicit language to help learners grasp math concepts more effectively.

To ensure effective instruction using the multisensory math approach, learners must be taught explicitly, practice skills consistently, and learn new concepts through CRA.

Concrete (Touch) – This aspect of multisensory math refers to touch. Teachers use tangible objects to represent concepts or numbers, such as breaking apart foam shapes (or using other manipulatives) to demonstrate fractions.

Representational (Drawing) – After concrete or tactile demonstration, teachers can then introduce the representational or drawing aspect. This technique encourages a learner to create his or her own visualization of the concept learned. It also aids students to facilitate their own connections and allows them to write down what they are thinking.

Abstract (Symbols) – Once they have fully understood the lesson introduced and built up during Concrete and Representational,  the next stage is the abstract or symbols sequence. Traditionally, teachers introduced math lessons using only abstract concepts (numbers and symbols). And while this has worked for some, other learners find it difficult to grasp math ideas without concrete or visual representation.

 

Math Concepts that Learners Should Master

According to Zecher, learners must master four conceptual horizons that lay down the foundation for higher levels of math. These are:

  • Pattern Recognition and Subitizing – Being able to identify quantity instantly or subitizing is a key concept in math and is one of its foundations. The best way to see quantity is through patterns. Having the ability to visualize numbers is crucial in developing a strong number sense. It opens the path to operational fluency and understanding number relationships. An example of subitizing would be recognizing dice patterns: One can visually identify the number or quantity without having to count or tap each dot. Likewise, it is also important to recognize number bonds and understand that numbers can be decomposed or broken down (such as 8 into 3 and 5 or 2 and 6).
  • Place Value – Using craft sticks is a great way to teach place value using multisensory math techniques. As the number gets larger, learners can see the quantity change and feel a heavier weight. Likewise, it helps learners visualize the difference between a number’s standard (the number’s name = 125) and expanded form (what it is made of = 100 + 20 + 5).
  • Distributive Property – This refers to a learner’s ability to act on larger quantities and understanding that those quantities can be broken apart or decomposed and act on those numbers. To illustrate, consider 15 x 3. Learners must first understand that 15 can be decomposed into 10 and 5. They can then distribute (multiply) 3 and add those quantities to find the product of 15 x 3.
  • What is ONE and all its many names – This refers to the concept that any number written over itself is equivalent to one. Hence, multiplying or dividing by some form of one only changes the composition of the quantity and not the quantity itself.
Getting Started on Multisensory Math Techniques 1

Getting Started on Multisensory Math Techniques

Multisensory teaching methods were first applied in literacy and reading instruction. But over the years, learning specialists have found that the same multisensory approach can also be effectively used when teaching math. Particularly, when it is applied using the CRA framework.

To get started with multisensory math, it is important to take advantage of skills that a learner has already mastered. From there, new concepts can be introduced using the CRA method. Using manipulatives is integral in multisensory math, but these do not need to be expensive. Some items commonly used are:

  • Craft sticks
  • Beads and string
  • Base ten blocks
  • Interlocking cubes
  • Color tiles
  • Foam stickers
  • Flat marbles
  • Dice/Dominoes (only up to six)

Here are some multisensory techniques for teaching math:

  • Visualizing with manipulatives such as beads, color tiles, or blocks is an excellent technique to teach basic operations like addition and subtraction. By seeing how quantities change, young learners get a better understanding of how math operations work. Visualization also helps children understand amounts and develop number sense.
  • Using cubes or tiles to build shapes lets children have a concrete and physical representation of measurements and properties.
  • Drawing math problems is an excellent way to reinforce hands-on activities as it lets children illustrate their thinking and the concept they learned.
  • Tapping out numbers allows children to “feel” the value of numbers. It helps students better understand and makeconnections between symbols and actual amounts.
  • Using songs to help memorize math rules and introduce new concepts.
  • Incorporating movement into math through play and games
  • Using bundling sticks or coffee stirrers to teach regrouping and place value. This can also be done using base ten blocks.
  • Using a hundreds chart is an excellent way to teach number relationships to children.
  • Cutting pizza into slices to introduce and teach the concept of fractions. By cutting up a paper or cardboard pizza, you allow children to see what fractions look like as they select slices.

MATH TUTORS 4

Adding and Subtracting Decimals – To add two decimal numbers, First check if they have the same number of digits to the right of the decimal point. If they don’t, add zeros to the right of one of the numbers until they do. Then, write one number on top of the other, lining up the decimal points vertically. Add as you would with whole numbers, and bring the decimal point straight down.

Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators– When adding and subtracting fractions, the First thing to check is if the denominators are the same. If the denominators are the same, then it’s pretty easy: just add or subtract the numerators, and write the result over the same denominator.

Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators – If the denominators are not the

same, then you have to use equivalent Fractions which do have a common denominator. To do this, you need to Find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators.

Adding and Subtracting with Negatives – Circle Graphs Adding any number to its opposite also called the additive inverse—always gives zero as the result.

EXAMPLE: -999+999=0, 2.54(-2.5)=0, 14(-1)=0

Once you know this, there are several ways to think about addition.

Addition Whole Numbers– Addition, written using the symbol +, is the mathematical operation that represents the total number of objects together in a collection.

Addition – As one of the basic arithmetic operations, addition is defined as combining two or more groups of objects into a single group. In math, addition refers to the sum or total of two or more numbers. Learners must also understand the properties of addition in order to work with numbers more effectively.

Area– The area of a plane figure, measured in square units (or units 2), is the number of squares required to cover it completely.

Bar Graphs– Bar graphs can be used to compare numerical data. Suppose you want to compare the average temperature in a certain city on a ~ certain day across a Four-year period.

Basic Operations– There are four basic operations are addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Circles– A circle is the set of all points in a plane at a given distance (called the radius)

from a given point (called the center.) A line segment connecting two points on the circle and going through the center is called a diameter of the circle.

Circles: Area– A circle is the set of all points in a plane at a given distance (called the radius) from a given point (called the center.) A line segment connecting two points on the circle and going through the center is called a diameter of the circle.

Circle Graphs– A circle graph is a way to organize data using the sectors of a circle.

Circumference– The circumference of a circle is the distance around the outside.

Common Ratio– The constant Factor between consecutive terms of a geometric sequence is called the common ratio.

Congruent Triangles– Congruent Triangles are triangles with three pairs of corresponding sides congruent and three pairs of corresponding angles congruent.

Convert Units of Area and Volume– The objective of the lesson is to convert units of measure between dimensions including area and volume.

Decimals – A decimal is a way to write fractions. It consists of a whole number and a fraction of a whole number (any part less than 1) separated by a dot or decimal point. Decimals are expressed in the scale of tens (tenths, hundredths, thousandths, and so on).

Different Bases– We tend to think it’s perfectly natural to use 10 symbols to write out numbers: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 . But the only reason we do this is because we grow up counting on our Fingers, of which we happen to have ten. There’s no real reason why ten

is any better for math than another number, say 2,5,12 0r 16.

Division – This operation refers to the process of sharing a number into smaller groups or distributing into equal parts. It is the inverse operation of multiplication. The commutative and associative properties of real numbers do not apply to division.

Exponents– There’s one more operation besides addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. That’s exponentiation, notated by superscript (e.g. x? or ¢*), or sometimes – especially on calculators and computers — using the symbol .

Fractions – Fractions are a way of splitting numbers into equal parts. It consists of a numerator, or the number of equal parts counted, and a denominator that represents the total number of equal parts in one whole. Fractions are classified into three typ

Subtraction – Subtraction refers to the mathematical operation where an amount is taken away from the total. Like addition, subtraction possesses properties that are key in mastering the operation. Identity property and inverse operations both apply to subtraction. However, it is neither commutative nor associative.es: proper, improper, and mixed fractions.

Line Graph– To draw a line graph, First draw a horizontal and a vertical axis. Age should be plotted on the horizontal axis because it is independent. Height should be plotted on the vertical axis. Then look For the given data and plot a point for each pair of values. Draw a line connecting each pair of consecutive points. Then title the graph and label the horizontal and vertical axis.

Multiplication – In math, multiplication refers to finding the result of two or more numbers by adding the numbers repeatedly. A multiplication sentence contains a multiplicand (the number multiplied by another number), multiplier (the number by which it is multiplied), and the product or result of multiplying. Multiplication possesses the commutative, associative, identity, and distributive properties.

Number Lines – A number line is the visual representation of numbers such as fractions, integers, and whole numbers. The numbers are laid out evenly on a straight line, which allows students to picture number sequences. Number lines can be used to compare and order numbers as well as to demonstrate techniques for counting, adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing.

She then received her M.S.Ed. in Literacy Education (Grades 1-6) from Nazareth College. Julia has over nine years of experience working with students with ASD, ADHD, processing delays, and learning disabilities. During this time, she has taught in a general education setting (ages 5-12), special education settings (ages 4-14), and as a literacy specialist (worked with ages 4-14). Throughout her years of teaching, she has utilized a multitude of programs including: Orton Gillingham, Wilson Fundations Program, Fountas & Pinnell, Reading Street, Wonders, SPIRE, GoMath, and Math Expressions. 

During her individual reading sessions as a literacy specialist, she first assesses the student’s decoding, encoding, fluency, and comprehension skills, and uses the assessment results to guide future sessions. Once she has a full picture of the student’s abilities and has built a relationship with them, she then chooses a curriculum that best suits the needs of the student.

She believes in using a well-balanced approach that encompasses the Five Pillars of Reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency). Individual math sessions follow the same trajectory and include the use of manipulatives and hands-on learning techniques to give the student a multi-sensory learning experience. 

Julia’s personal teaching philosophy is rooted in creating an environment where students feel comfortable celebrating their successes, challenging themselves, and becoming life-long learners. She believes that all students have unique learning styles and through individualized instruction that supports different learning styles, they can reach their full potential. 

Beyond the classroom, she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, exploring new neighborhoods in NYC, and reading. She also has experience tutoring and prepping multiple students aged 12-15 (including students with disabilities) for their ISEE exams.

Michelle is a learning specialist who received her Bachelor of Science degree in Cognitive Science with minors in psychology and disabilities studies from the University of Delaware. She went on to complete her Masters in Speech and Language Pathology at Hunter College, and in 2020 she received her Juris Doctor degree from New York Law School intending to pursue Education Law in the future. During tutoring sessions, Michelle helps students develop skills from a variety of subjects including reading, math, and writing. Regarding reading skills, Michelle has provided in-home tutoring to assist students in developing their phonemic awareness, phonics, decoding, vocabulary, and reading comprehension skills.

Michelle’s approach is student-centered, and she makes a conscious effort to plan activities that align with a student’s specific interests to keep sessions engaging and enjoyable. Michelle has provided writing support to students in first grade through eighth grade, with a particular emphasis on the planning stage, and organizational strategies used in writing. She has assisted students in learning to write persuasive, narrative, and informative essays.

She utilizes a process-based approach focusing on writing full texts and meaningful ideas. This approach de-emphasizes spelling, punctuation, and grammar in the initial writing stage, coming back to these constructs later in the process. In the area of math, Michelle has experience working with first through third-grade math curricula. She is skilled at helping students enhance their problem-solving skills, and master mathematical concepts through the use of tangible manipulatives and visual aids. She places emphasis on making sure students fully understand early mathematical concepts, rather than just completing problems in a rote manner, as early concepts are fundamental to complete more complex equations in later years.

Rachel is a New York State licensed teacher, with a dual certification in early childhood and childhood education. She earned her Masters of Education in Literacy at SUNY Oneonta and holds a Bachelor of Science from SUNY Cortland. Rachel is a tenured teacher and has been teaching for the Department of Education for five years. Rachel currently teaches in an ICT first-grade classroom and has previously taught kindergarten as well. She has worked with diverse groups of students, working to meet the needs of English language learners, students diagnosed with learning disabilities, and general education students. Rachel is responsible for creating and implementing individualized instruction across academic domains to meet the specific needs of students with a variety of learning and physical disabilities. She uses multisensory-based teaching methods to teach phonics, reading, writing, and math to her first graders. Rachel believes in an explicit approach to teaching students to read using tools such as decodable texts, play-doh, sound boxes, and magnet chips.

This means that students first learn to decode words by moving counters or playdoh for the sounds they hear. Once they are able to break down sounds, they can then read an unknown word. Through this work, she has helped students with dyslexia, ADHD, speech and language delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other reading disabilities learn to read. In math, this approach includes using manipulatives such as cubes, counters, and playdoh to make learning hands-on. Students are able to see the math problem “come to life.” She has experience working with students one on one both at home and remotely, working with students to build their skills and also confidence in themselves.

Rachel believes that all students are able to learn and it is up to the teacher to modify the curriculum to meet the needs of the student. Just as important as academic content, is the child’s social-emotional needs. Rachel works to develop a relationship with each of her students, ensuring they feel comfortable learning with her and proud of their successes.

Julia J.

Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies, Dual M.S.Ed in General and Special Education for grades 1-6
Julia

Julia graduated from Colgate University with a Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies. She then joined the Teach For America Corps, where she taught grades kindergarten- fourth grade, while obtaining her Dual M.S.Ed in General and Special Education for grades 1-6. Julia has 4 years experience teaching whole group and small group instruction. During this time, she has taught SEL, writing, math, science and guided literacy in both the General and Special Education setting. She has experience with reading programs like Amplify, CKLA, iReady, NWEA, STEP tool and F&P. In math, she has used tools like Zearn, iReady, NWEA to analyze and target instruction to student needs.

In her most current role, she is a Learning Specialist in which she solely focuses on students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs), for students with processing disorders, learning disabilities and Speech/ Language delays. She uses consistent data tracking to tailor instructional plans that will achieve a student’s IEP and personal goals. Julia progress monitors all of her students frequently to understand what concepts they can grasp and which they need more at bats.

Julia believes in enhancing student’s strengths to target their weaknesses. She knows all learners learn differently, regardless if there is a classification or not. Because of this, she believes students need multiple ways of learning to make concepts stick. This begins with the reteaching of foundational skills that are personalized to the student. To introduce new standards and topics, Julia uses: manipulatives to enhance tactile learning, visuals with graph paper and colored pencils to draw out word problems, audio tools like rhythm and music to access problems through auditory processing, diagrams and colored pencils, and games using real life scenarios to encourage authentic engagement and understanding of math and reading concepts.

She has used Fundations and Wilson’s to target students’ fluency and phonemic awareness needs at the elementary level. It has helped provide a set curriculum that includes hands-on resources for students to engage with while learning the fundamentals of reading and writing.

In her free time, Julia loves seeing theater in NYC, reading, trying new restaurants, and photography.

Jana U.

B.A. in English Literature and Spanish, M.A. in TESOL
Jana U

Jana Ulanoff is an educator who has B.A. in English Literature and Spanish from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst
and an M.A. in TESOL at Hunter College where she honed her craft at developing multisensory instructional methods and social-emotional skill-building practices. She prides herself on forming real connections and creating a nurturing space where students can comfortably grow and learn.

Jana has worked in both the public and private educational sectors, offering a unique educational perspective as an ENL [English as a New Language] classroom teacher in NYC’s DOE supporting self-contained classes of 1st-graders, 7th-graders, and 10th-12th graders. Throughout her time as a classroom teacher, she promoted accessibility and acquisition by tailoring the curriculum to promote her ELLs’ [English Language Learners] differing proficiencies.

Tailoring the curriculum and connecting with her students led her to private tutoring for 5+ years and she is absolutely loving it! Jana has experience working with students with varying learning differences such as math, reading, writing, attention, social-emotional, and behavioral skills, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and Executive Functioning Disorder. Currently, she thrives in remediating 4th and 5th graders who have dyscalculia through playful yet strategic multi-sensory exercises via manipulatives, color-coding, base ten blocks, and 100s charts. She is currently doing dyscalculia research to better support and level-up her students’ learning. To ensure students’ confidence and comfortability with the content, she likes to preview material beforehand.

Additionally, Jana has experience working with neurotypical students from ages 4 to 11. Her experience in tutoring varies from preparing preschoolers for their kindergarten interviews which include phonological and phonemic awareness and early math skills e.g. identifying patterns and number recognition. She uses multisensory reading and writing techniques via Orton-Gillingham and Handwriting Without Tears; for her lower and upper elementary students, she uses real-world math examples via manipulatives e.g. math-link cubes to make content more accessible and meaningful.
Jana has also taught ELL adult students at Brooklyn College. There she promoted learning through interactive, role-playing activities based on everyday life skills that varied from introducing greetings to writing professional emails.

Jana’s teaching methods are constructed upon positive reinforcement and interactive exercises to promote whole-child education.
Jana believes every student has untapped potential waiting to be unlocked. She takes pride in igniting students’ passions through a mix of research-based tools and strategies that work for them, so they can seize their potential. While Jana is an advocate for her students, she also serves as a partner to her families she works with by being transparent and supportive.

Lastly, when Jana is not supporting her students, she loves to engage her mind with reading and puzzles. She loves to explore NYC with her friends, go on long walks which vary from relaxing to rigorous hikes, bake, and play with her two beautiful cats!
