I have more than five years of tutoring, teaching, and training experience with a diversity of adults and youth on topics such as ESL, writing, political science and international relations at the University of Washington, health training with villages in Africa, computers for business and projects, local dance and theatre, and service learning with Seattle Public Schools. As my technology skills are highly developed, I am able to help students apply this knowledge with software and online platforms.

My background in the theatre has served as an excellent foundation for my innovative and interactive teaching approach, and enables me to adapt my training to a variety of settings. I have international experience in more than five African and Middle Eastern countries as well as most of Western Europe. In addition, I hold a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Washington, and have extensive experience in a number of fields; hence I am always able to provide context and advice on resources, opportunities, and best approaches for a student’s desired career path.

I look forward to hearing from you and knowing how I may contribute to your learning needs.

ESL/ESOL

I scored 100% on WyzAnt’s ESL certification exam. I have more than five years of tutoring experience with adults and youth on ESL, including conversation and public speaking, writing, reading comprehension, exam preparation, and more. With my background in the theatre, I am able to quickly develop scenarios and models that allow the learner to immediately apply the material of focus. I hold a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Washington. In addition, I have knowledge and experience in a number of fields; hence I am able to offer suggestions, best approaches, resources, and opportunities for a student’s desired academic or career path.

I look forward to hearing from you and knowing how I may contribute to your learning needs.

Public Speaking

I have an extensive background in the theatre as well as more than a decade of experience as a presenter, emcee, and class instructor. I've also received training specifically on public speaking and have coached others in performance preparation. My tutoring on this subject has yielded excellent capabilities!

Theatre

I have more than five years of teaching experience and hold a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with Honors. This comprehensive program required in-depth training in many areas, including method acting and improvisation, along with intensive practical application in directing and all aspects of production. While pursuing this degree I acquired more than several years of stage, camera, and film experience, and was represented by Ryan Artists (talent agency). I also independently obtained about 18 months of focused training on camera acting. All of this training was of the highest caliber and had a profound impact in my development. I find surprising opportunities to apply its many elements throughout my every day life! Upon graduation, the dean of the theatre department implored me to pursue directing. I would be excited to I bring these skills to you!
