Ms. Steinberg holds a masters degree in education from Wheelock College.  She received the Wheelock Community Award for her contributions to the well being of children and families. Ms. Steinberg is also trained in Orton-Gillingham, Project Read and writing instruction.  Her teaching sessions are evidence based, multi-sensory, (auditory, visual, kinesthetic and tactile) sequential and cumulative.  As students learn new information, they continue to review previously learned material to the level of fluency.  Ms. Steinberg develops lessons for students based on their individual learning style and interests.  Students experience a high level of success, in all subjects, as they increase their skills and self-confidence from their accomplishments.  Learning becomes an enjoyable and rewarding experience.  Ms. Steinberg teaches reading, comprehension, writing, organization, study skills and test preparation. In addition, Ms. Steinberg works with parents who want their children to perform at their highest potential for school, homework, writing and test taking.

Ms. Steinberg believes all students are bright, have multiple intelligences, and tremendous potential to realize their dreams.  She is committed to teaching students strategies that inspire life long learning.  Ms. Steinberg works collaboratively with parents, students, teachers and specialists to create optimal individual lessons and extended learning opportunities.

Prior to teaching, Ms. Steinberg directed community service in Boston.  She created city-wide educational and community programs involving neighborhoods, college students, senior adults, immigrants, children and families, and food pantries.  Ms. Steinberg received national and local awards.
