I am a National Merit Scholar who has been teaching and tutoring for 20 years. I will be a graduate assistant and undergraduate teacher at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in the Department of Theatre, starting in Fall 2014, I have a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
I am a private voice teacher, music tutor, and acting coach, and I am also available for academic tutoring and test preparation. My first assistant teaching position was at Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii, well known as one of the top private schools in the country (and also President Obama's alma mater). I also worked for Rising Stars, a performance school for professional child actors, for two years until their closing. I have taught private lessons and conducted workshops for small groups for over 20 years, starting when I was 13 years old.
Performance Qualifications:
I instruct/coach the Stanislavsky method and Meisner technique for acting, the Orff Schulwerk system of elementary music, and the Bel Canto method of singing. I am an undergraduate professor at UNLV Theatre, and I have professional stage, film, and recording credits. My performance / theatrical resume is available on request.
Academic Qualifications:
My SAT scores in 1997 were 790 Verbal 680 Math, using the old 1600 point system. In December 2013, I took the GREs and scored 168 Verbal 162 Math and 5.5 Writing, with no test preparation.
I have always enjoyed tutoring and teaching, and I think I have a gift for framing material in a way that is accessible to the specific student I am working with. I am comfortable working with people of all ages, from young children to seniors. I am not intimidated by a challenge, and I find working with special needs persons to be especially rewarding.

Classics

I have an extensive education in the classics and the humanities. I attended a highly competitive private high school in Honolulu, Hawaii (Punahou) with a strong focus on the humanities, and I continued to study the classics as a matter of personal practice for many years thereafter. I am well-versed in art history, philosophy, Greek theater, mythology, and even Grecian occultism and its effect on classical and modern philosophies. I have also studied Plato and Aristotle, classical aesthetics, classical art theory, and semiotics.

Composition (Music)

I have been a professional musician since 1993, and I am trained in music theory, aural skills, songwriting, and composition. I am extremely proficient in Logic X, and ProTools 11, and I can tutor in the use of the most modern composition software, as well as in the traditional techniques, including hand-scoring. I have a background in western music, Arabic music, jazz, and rock.

Drawing

I have a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. My university was a highly competitive art school with a strong basis in classical fundamentals, balanced by professional training using the most current software and technology. I have a portfolio that is available for view on request.

Ear Training

I have been a professional musician since 1993. I have extensive classical training, including ear training and music theory. I have perfect relative pitch, and near-absolute pitch. I have received perfect or nearly-perfect scores on every aural skills examination I have taken since 9th grade.

Music History

I studied music at both the University of Southern California and at the Academy of Art University, and my curriculum included a significant amount of music history. Furthermore, I spent many years studying early music, particularly of the Medieval and Renaissance periods. I have taught workshops in early music performance for the past ten years, and am an expert in 15th century Ladino music. I have a background in western music, Arabic music, jazz, and rock.

Theatre

I am the Co-Founder and CEO of a nascent theatrical development company. Founded at the Academy of Art University, my team of multi-disciplinary artists creates new theatrical work that brings together circus, musical theater, and cutting-edge projection technology.
This company is the culmination of a lifetime in theater. I have appeared in over 30 plays and musicals, and have done technical theater work on about the same number. I wrote and produced my first musical in 1989, when I was 9 years old. I worked as an acting and vocal coach for Rising Stars, a performing arts school for professional child actors, and as a teaching assistant for multiple theater classes at Punahou Summer School in Honolulu, Hawaii. I am trained in the Stanislavski method, Meisner technique, and a wide range of improvisational theater games.
