I have been in community theatre many years and currently teach at a modeling school. My specialty there is in acting, public speaking, voice control, reading, doing commercials, and pronouncing properly. I also have sung many solos, harmonize, and can read music. I also am an acrylic artist painter, and have won several awards and cash prizes in this area. I can sometimes teach shy people to become better at public speaking, as well as non-singers and non-actors to enjoy singing and acting.
Although I am not a licensed teacher, I individualize my teaching to each student and work with their interests and use their strengths to tackle minor weaknesses. I have 4 years' experience in social work, and can work with special needs children, but may not have the proper materials that a teacher might have. However, with the proper materials, I think I can teach almost any student and make any student a little smarter or more knowledgeable.
My parents are elderly and I would be willing to work with older adults also with dementia issues. I would be patient with all my students. I do not have the resources that a teacher might already have. I can help with vocabulary, helping students memorize or learn grammar and basic math skills. I have a variety of interests myself.
