About Jenapher

I'm a motivated and diligent writer / director/ performer who values creativity and encourages people to do their best. I received my Bachelor's degrees in English and Theatre from the University of California, Riverside where I graduated with honors. I've recently graduated from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) Theatre School with my Master of Fine Arts in Acting.

Theatre Arts: I teach character study, acting technique, script comprehension, speech/accents/dialects, and movement. I've studied acting styles varying from Stella Adler to Anne Bogart, have comprehensive physical theatre training through the Grotowski technique, yoga, and pilates.

English: I teach reading comprehension, creative writing, analytical writing, proofreading, and accent reduction for ESL Chinese students since I speak fluent Mandarin Chinese. When I took the GRE, my analytical writing/essay writing score was within the top 92% percentile for that testing year. I work closely with students to generate original analytical deductions from literary texts and give them structured guidelines for how to effectively communicate their ideas.

Music: I can teach basic piano playing, sheet music reading, and ear training for tone. I hold a Certificate of Merit award for passing the tenth "Advanced" level of Music Theory and Piano performance. Contact me today to see if what I offer can help you succeed.

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 hold my BA in English from UC Riverside where I graduated with Honors. My GRE English score was in the top 92% in the nation for that year.

ESL/ESOL

I have been bilingual in English and Mandarin Chinese since birth, since I am an American Born Chinese. I use creative methods to approach learning English, and encourage students to use their creativity to learn.

Theatre

I hold an MFA in Theatre Acting from the California Institute of the Arts, and a B.A. in Theatre from the University of California, Riverside- my training incorporates vocal training, speech, movement exercises, and acting technique.

I am an actor, writer, director, producer for the past 7 years, and have won awards at the Hollywood Fringe Festival, performed at the South Coast Repertory, and have screened my films at festivals like the POWfest in Portland, Oregon.

I've taught Theatre acting, storybuilding, and community-based performance at the GLUCK Foundation for the Arts for High School students at UC Riverside.
