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.

Anxious about being able to read new material quickly and correctly?

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.
