My approach to learning has always been one of intense curiosity followed by finding out how things work or why did so and so say what he or she said. Learning should not be tedious or daunting, it should open the door to new ideas and new horizons and be an exciting part of a young person's life. Reading is one of the most important parts of the learning process and I've stressed this whenever I've had the opportunity to help young people with their studies. I am a patient and understanding person and I know that listening is a very important part of the communication process, especially with young people. I would like to share some of my extensive knowledge with young people who are striving for excellence.
I am proficient in 4 languages (including English) and I am very well read in all of them. I have had a varied and interesting career, ranging from being an actor on the stage and screen to a personal manager as well as other positions in the entertainment field. I have also excelled in the corporate/business world. I was Branch manager at a large telemarketing firm, a financial advisor at Prudential and have managed a large sales force that dealt with the US Government. My educational background is a little different from most; I have a French Baccalaureate in French Philosophy from the Lycee Armenien de Beyrouth, a Bachelor's Degree in Theatre from the Boston Conservatory of Music and studied French Philosophy at the Sorbonne for a little more than a year. I have had a Series 7, series 63 and insurance licenses when I worked as a financial advisor. I have had several short stories and some poetry published and I am active in my community.
