I have a Ph.D. in Theater from University of Wisconsin-Madison and have been teaching at elite universities for the past ten years, including Wesleyan, Harvard, Brown, and Yale, where I currently teach in Theater Studies. I also have a background in K-12 education, and enjoy working with younger children. While I was in graduate school I trained undergrad Education majors in using drama in the classroom, and I have had a lot of experience teaching academic subjects through the arts. My academic life has been split between reading/writing intensive work and creative work in dance and theater, and I always try to incorporate creative activities in the learning process. I have two little boys, one 5 1/2 and one 4, and I'm looking for ways to continue teaching but stay closer to home. I've formed lasting relationships with students over the years, and am still close with kids I taught right out of college; several former students performed at my wedding.

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.
