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.

English

I have worked consistently with English as A Second Language learners. My students at the NY Film Academy are primarily international. I hold a Masters degree and am an adjunct professor. I am well equipped to coach those students needing additional help with the English language.

Microsoft Word

As a computer user for over 20 years, I am excellent at both word and excel. As a professor, I routinely grade papers in word. I'd be happy to assist you whether you be an advanced user or novice.

Public Speaking

I have a Master of Arts degree in Theatre Education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Arts. I have been teaching speech at the undergraduate college level since 2002. My course portfolio includes: Fundamentals of Speech, Advanced Public Speaking, Intro to Speech, and Voice and Articulation. I am currently on the acting faculty of the New York Film Academy where I assisted in developing the core speech class.

As a theater director, I have coached international students and actors in the effective use of their voice to assist in making clear character choices. I am interested in helping students find their own unique and powerful voice.

Reading

As a professor, I am well qualified to assist students in reading skills. I am a certified K-12 teacher and well qualified to do so. I also have 9 neices and nephews ranging in age from 2-20!

Theatre

I hold a Master of Arts degree in Theater Education from Emerson College. I was a certified K-12 performing arts teacher in Massachusetts where I taught middle and high school theater for 5 years before moving into undergraduate teaching. I have been a professor at the undergraduate level since 2002. I am currently on the adjunct theater faculty at Long Island University in Brooklyn and the acting faculty of the New York Film Academy.

Additionally, I am a professional stage director and a proud member of the Stage Directors and Choreographer's Society. I have directed plays and musicals on Off and Off-Off Broadway. The show I directed in last year's NY International Fringe Festival got a NY Post review which had this to say about my work: "Misti B. Wills's production generates some effective, nuanced performances" I believe in theater as a collaborative form and seek to bring out the best in the actor by creating a safe and nurturing environment.

Vocabulary

My vocabulary on my SAT's was my highest score. I'm a professor and well equipped to assist you in increasing your vocabulary usage and knowledge.
