Hello students and parents,

I have a passion for many things and enjoy sharing that passion with others through tutoring. It is my goal as a tutor to excite and inspire my students in their chosen subject through hands-on and active learning.

I graduated with honors with a Bachelors of Arts in Theatre Performance and a minor in Japanese. After graduation, I moved to Japan and worked as an ESL tutor. I have over 3 years experience teaching ESL, in person and over Skype, to children and adults. I also have experience coaching business and university presentations for ESL learners.

I lived and worked in Japan for 1.5 years so, I speak conversational Japanese and would feel comfortable tutoring beginners or travelers wanting "survival Japanese".

Aside from my ESL experience, my theatre study encompassed a wide range of coursework such as literary analysis, the classic world, and vocal training. If you are looking for help with public speaking, drama, or literature, I'm the tutor for you! I especially specialize in Shakespeare since I have performed many of his popular works on stage, and have experience leading Shakespeare workshops for students of all ages.

Let's create a custom lesson plan to put you on the right track for success! I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked professionally as an ESL tutor for over 3 years in Japan and the USA.

Japanese

I have a minor in Japanese and lived in Japan for 1.5 years. Are you about to travel to Japan? I can help you with the "survival Japanese" you need!

Literature

My undergrad coursework included advanced study and text analysis of classic literature and plays such as Greek tragedies, Eastern classics, Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, etc. My work as an actress has also given me the unique opportunity to perform some of the well known classics on stage which requires deep research into character arcs, and the historical context of the work. It is my goal as a tutor to give my students a fun, hands-on, and useful approach to literature!

Public Speaking

I have experience coaching children and adults for speech competitions and business/university presentations. I have formal training in vocal projection, enunciation, stage presence, and pronunciation. My tutoring sessions are great for ESL or Native-English children and adults who need to improve their public speaking and confidence! My sessions will be catered to individual needs but will probably include voice/movement and breathing exercises.

Theatre

I have an honors B.A. in Theatre Performance and I am currently working professionally as an actress in Chicago. I also have experience leading workshops and teaching drama to middle school children. If your child is having trouble with drama or humanities courses, I will plan a fun lesson using flash cards and games to reinforce the core concepts they need to pass their class!
