I am an individual with experience that varies across a broad spectrum. I have officially taught Theater and Speech at the High School level in an economically disadvantaged area. From that experience I developed a life coaching style of tutoring. Because of my background in theater and the military I was able to tutor students in many subjects. I found I was effective in areas of math, English (reading and writing) and general science as well as developing basic presentation skills and building self esteem in the students. Those last two items included what I considered "life coaching." Everyone can learn and successful people never stop learning. My work in the entertainment industry often pushes me to research and teach myself new subjects as I prepare for a project. Above all that is the one thing I can always look back over my teaching efforts and count successful, teaching students how to be continual learners.
My experience in Theater is very closely tied to film. As part of my current graduate studies I am pursuing a new field called integrated media. It is the combination of both film and live performance in new and innovative ways. I am also pursuing additional creative avenues in short film.
As part of my theater career, public speaking is an integral part. During my 3 years as a high school teacher this is the one key skill I required all students to attempt. By the end of a year all were successful and most had found ways to use this for presentations in other classes. I have also been involved with the Toastmasters clubs.
As part of pursing my continuing education, I am very aware of the need for strong structure and planning regarding studying and preparing for examinations and projects. I have also worked with several students during my time teaching high school to create effective study plans in order to achieve success. The challenges each student faces are unique for themselves and the biggest hurdle to overcome is often themselves. I like to take the idea of "life coaching" and weave it in with study skills to create a more long term plan for success.
I have spent most of my life working in theater and more recently beginning work in film and creating short films. I have taught high school theater for 3 years professionally and as a guest lecturer / designer / director for almost 10 years.
