My teaching philosophy is to provide my students with the tools to enjoy the learning process.
I have 25 years teaching experience in both public and private schools; I have a Teaching Credential in English with the Emphasis in Drama, and have successfully taught Drama, Directing, Creative Writing, English, and Shakespeare. My lessons are adapted for the individual student. Each of us has a unique way of learning and retaining material. I can help you develop that learning process.
My background in theatre and speech, as well as language arts and creative writing, allows me to use a wide range of teaching techniques. Do you want to learn how to feel comfortable speaking convincingly in front of a group? Or, do you need help in audition preparation, or understand Shakespeare? I'm your teacher.
Do you need help with writing exceptional college essays or want to learn how to write the perfect paragraph? I will provide you with the tools your need to be successful.
I pride myself in new and creative ways to help teach different lessons. I am comfortable with a variety of teaching methods.I taught 10 years in a boarding school with an international student body. Speaking in front of a group can be the most frightening experience! But it does not have to be. I'm here to help you (or your student) in the way that best fits you. Let me know what you need, and we can do this together! I have over 20 years experience teaching speech/public speaking in public and private schools. I will help you improve vocabulary, pronunciation, diction, and grammar.I've coached many students who have achieved a dramatic improvement in their ability to speak effectively. My students have developed the confidence needed to audition, or apply for a job.
Is it 'who' or 'whom'? Direct Object or Prepositional phrase?
English grammar can seem confusing. Let me help clarify and simplify. I can help you recognize and use properly the parts of speech and basic rules of English grammar.
Speaking in front of a group can be the most frightening experience! But it does not have to be. I have over 20 years experience teaching public speaking in public and private schools. I've coached many students who have achieved a dramatic improvement in their ability to speak publicly. Several of my students have gone on to win scholarships through speech competitions. Others have developed the confidence needed to audition, or apply for a job.
I can teach you speech styles including expository, informative, and extemporaneous. I will help you learn how to organize and develop a coherent speech from a single topic. You will learn vocal variety, projection, and appropriate gesturing. Everything you need to become a poised fluent public speaker.
Anxious about being able to read new material quickly and correctly?
The SAT requires the ability to read quickly--but accurately, to comprehend, and make logical, thoughtful decisions in a limited amount of time.
This can be difficult, but I have 22 years of teaching background to ease the anxiety of timed Reading Tests.
I have 25 years of experience teaching, directing, and performing. Theatre lessons can cover a wide range of sub topics.
Theatre history: how acting and theatre plants evolved from the Greeks to today;
Acting: stage movement, blocking, character development, vocal variety;
Directing: learn to select the right play, cast, create blocking; rehearsal schedules, tech assignments;
Dramatic Literature: read and study plays, find themes, motifs, learn differences and similarities in playwrites throughout the ages;
Audition Prep: learn everything you need to know to go into an audition fully prepared and confident.
Do you have the words in your head, but cannot get them down on paper the way you'd like?
I've over 20 years teaching writing skills. I also taught Creative Writing and edited the school Literary Magazine.
I can help you learn to write cogent, insightful, creative essays and reports.
