One of the greatest gifts I have gotten over the years is my theatrical training. I have a BA in Theater and an MA in Educational Theater. In addition to having performed in theaters around the country and in NYC, I wrote and performed my own Cabaret show. I teach acting and public speaking one on one and in classes. It is one of the greatest skills for a person to have to be an expressive communicator in life. I'm a Certified Personal Coach, with a book I wrote on Life Coaching. I am a published writer and help students write great essays and assignments. Writing is another very important skill one will need for life.
I am qualified to tutor student in college counseling. I have significant experience writing college essays. I had to write four essays to get accepted to The University of Colorado for my undergraduate Education, NYU for grad school, and for my Certificate in Life Coaching, and to get accepted to Touro College's graduate program in social work.
I have worked with teenagers at the Y, helping them write essays as a part of their college applications.
As a public speaking teacher, I teach my students to breathe correctly and project their voice. Each speak has a message and it has to be conveyed with passion and presence to an audience.

I speak advanced intermediate level Spanish. I can carry on conversations in Spanish, and I can teach beginning and intermediate Spanish grammar and vocabulary. I studied it in college, lived and studied for a month with a family in Malaga, Spain, and have taken numerous coursed in New York. I speak it at work and in the neighborhood as often as possible and watch Spanish TV.
I am a Certified Life Coach and I help students study by putting them on a time schedule and breaking down what they have to study and accomplish each week. By helping them study through goal setting, they feel good about the achievements they make and continue to want to complete their goals and feel successful. We talk about and write their future dreams and goals and how they can get there so they can see it in their mind.
As an Equity actress, I work with students on monologues. We work on creating a character, picking great pieces, beats, objectives, voice, and physicality. By the end the student should be ready to feel good with his/her audition and have confidence in front of an audience.
