Dear Students and Parents,

I am a writer and sound designer living in Chicago. I specialize in performance studies and English, but I am confident teaching many subjects. I have always loved learning, sharing knowledge, and encouraging new ideas and developments, and I hope that you will think of me for your tutoring needs.

I graduated from high school with honors. Even in high school, I helped guide and train people as editor of Calliope, the school poetry magazine. For college, I chose Northwestern University, where I majored in Communications. At Northwestern I was both a Communication Century Scholar and a Kaplan Scholar; this allowed me access to courses and professors of a high level early on in my college career.

In my time in the Northwestern theatre community, I worked on dozens of productions and contributed to many student groups. I was the executive director of Northwestern University Radio Drama, which produces a live radio comedy show every week, as well as the technical director of both Sit & Spin Productions and Pretend Productions, two student theatre companies. Through these companies, I produced a good deal, but more importantly, I learned how best to instruct and guide others in support of their goals. I am a strong believer that everything we do as people is helped and shaped by those around us, and I think a positive environment is the best thing for someone trying to learn.

Since graduation, I have worked as a freelance sound designer and writer; you can hear my work all around Chicago. I still love learning and teaching, and am confident that I can connect with any student who shares a desire to learn. I would love to meet with you or your child and see if we are compatible.

Thanks for your consideration!

Daniel C.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I have been playing violin since I was 9, and am currently a theatrical sound designer around Chicago. Consequently, I deal with music every day. I am well versed in both reading/performing music and music theory.

Public Speaking

I studied theater at Northwestern University, and consequently have a strong background in performance and public speaking.

Theatre

I majored in theatre at Northwestern University, graduating in 2011. I have been involved in theatre from a young age; I've been an actor, writer, director, dramaturg, and producer, and I'm currently working as a freelance sound designer in theaters around Chicago.

Violin

I began playing violin when I was 9 years old, and continued throughout high school, playing in school orchestras as well as extracurricular chamber orchestras, quartets, and other smaller groups, as well as private violin lessons for all of high school.

I currently still play the violin, using it when I compose music for my main job, as a sound designer for theatrical productions around Chicago. I think the violin is one of the most distinctive and evocative instruments out there, and I love playing it whenever I can.
