Approved subjects

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL/ESOL to a variety of populations, from teens to older adults, both in public schools and in private tutoring centers, to students interested in the arts and literature and business.

Public Speaking

I have extensive training in performance (and in voice and diction). I have directed and performed professionally in the theater. As a college professor, I have taught public speaking.

Theatre

I am a trained and experienced actor/director. I have a BA and PhD in Theater. I have taught theater to middle school, high school and college. I have directed more than 25 productions. I have coached students for auditions.
