I hold my master's in Drama from Pace University and I'm very passionate about the arts. I have been performing since I was in diapers. In front of family and friends, at church, in school, and even the Broadway stage. I am an artist, and I believe every child should experience art for a time in their life even if they don't pursue it as a career. The creativity that is unlocked and the imagination that is used I believe helps the child in any profession that they choose. The creativity, imagination, and inventiveness opens the mind to new possibilities, new ways of seeing the world and the people in it and I believe the arts gives a child the opportunity to experience this type of growth. I have been a drama teacher for a number of summer camps, also in my church I have been used in all areas of the arts and have had a hand in helping the youth cultivate their art. I have worked professionally and trained from the age of twelve and can't think of anything I find more enjoyable.
I also have a love for math. Algebra to be exact. I love numbers and it has always been my favorite subject. I have been an algebra tutor helping students with homework and to pass tests, this past summer I tutored a young man and he passed his algebra test which allowed him to move on to the ninth grade.
When it comes to whatever I'm tutoring I want to first find what the child likes about the subject and what they don't like. I assess what they know or don't know and use creative methods to open their eyes and learn the things needed. I give assignments that are to be shown to me in the next tutoring session and I make sure that we don't move on until they understand a concept. I make them work hard, but I don't believe in boot-camp style teaching, I believe it should be fun and I'm a child myself so we have fun but we get the work done and they leave the session feeling better and more confident than when they started.
I have my Master's in Drama from the Actor's studio at Pace University and I have been a drama teacher at several summer camps. I believe theater opens the mind of a child to new possibilities and new ways of thinking, which is important. It helps them to become one step above the rest using creativity and inventiveness.
