Hello there! I am a senior at NYU Tisch pursuing a BFA in Acting with a minor in Applied Theatre, and I have a passion for bringing my skills and commitment to my work to students of all ages. I believe strongly in the power of the arts to help all of us, especially students, take hold of and cultivate our strengths as well as to recognize and overcome our weaknesses.
My work in Applied Theatre has led me to working with students of all ages in using theatre arts to gain greater understanding of a wide range of subjects. Through a course at NYU called Intercultural Collaborations with Local Teens, my fellow classmates and I went in to a local Brooklyn high school and used Applied Drama techniques to help ESL and special needs students approach canonical English texts in new and exciting ways. These techniques opened their eyes to material that had been previously inaccessible to many of them.
I have also worked extensively with organizations like The 52nd St. Project in Hell's Kitchen, assisting kids ages 10-18 with after-school Homework Help, as well as creating various theatrical productions with the help of professional artists. In my hometown of Richmond, VA I worked with the organizations Richmond Shakespeare and Will Power by acting/coaching with inner-city teens in Romeo & Juliet, which they then performed for their peers and followed each production with a workshop on conflict resolution.
I also have an immense passion for English literature, and am a proficient writer as well. My specialties include dramatic lit, classical lit, modern American lit, and writing of any kind. I also have experience in Test Prep help, specifically SAT and ACT.
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about me, I'd love to learn more about you as well! Please reach out with any questions about my qualifications or services, and I look forward to working with you!
