Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Theatre

I have worked as a professional actress and singer for a number of years. I have performed in a variety of venues -- from the Museum of Glass to a paddle boat on Lake Union. I also have experience as a professional stagehand, and as a stage manager.

Video Production

I am an experienced filmmaker. I have worked on TV and films as a Camera Operator, Floor Director, Editor, Production Assistant, Talent Scout, Producer, and Director. I worked at a local cable TV station for several years, doing all of the above. And, I am currently making my own documentary.

Writing

I have been a professional newspaper reporter for 20 years (published in over 30 publications in the Seattle area). Students I have tutored have ranged in age, from five years old to adult. As a college student from the University of WA (where I graduated with a BA in communications/journalism), I served as a reading tutor at Green Lake Elementary through the America Reads program. And, for the past six years, I have been tutoring students in writing at South Seattle Community College.
