About Denise


Bio

I am an Actress, Writer, and Acting Coach who has edited four Humor books and taught Improv Comedy and straight Acting to people of all ages. My upbeat, energetic nature enables me to engage a student’s interest in the course of a lesson. As a professional Humor writer, it is easy for me to edit the work of others, helping them to craft effective, dynamic papers, and achieve their optimal literary potential. And because I’m used to being on camera, communicating via video-chat platforms is...

I am an Actress, Writer, and Acting Coach who has edited four Humor books and taught Improv Comedy and straight Acting to people of all ages. My upbeat, energetic nature enables me to engage a student’s interest in the course of a lesson. As a professional Humor writer, it is easy for me to edit the work of others, helping them to craft effective, dynamic papers, and achieve their optimal literary potential. And because I’m used to being on camera, communicating via video-chat platforms is second nature to me.

Additionally, as the mother of two, I’ve devoted many years to helping kids with their homework!

My years of experience as a writer and editor have given me an innate ability to help students of all ages create their best possible written work. Etymology is a lifetime hobby and personal love, so teaching vocabulary is actually great fun. And my years as an Acting Coach allow me to help students cultivate their public speaking abilities.

I have a BA in Theater from the University of Wisconsin. An extensive background in Improv Comedy (including my Second City training), years of on-camera and stage work, and a long history in Coaching Acting to students of all ages, give me the ability to draw out the best in any prospective performer, and gear my lessons to their current abilities.

If you believe, as I do, that life-time learning should be a dynamic and fun experience, contact me!

I have an extensive background in Acting and Improvisation (on-camera and on stage), and I have coached actors of all ages for 20+ years. I’m patient, high-energy, and enthusiastic, and I can help students to alleviate their nerves with repetition and an assortment of exercises. I want to make coaching a fun experience for both of us!

As an Actor and Improviser, I've appeared on camera and on stage in countless productions. I am an Acting Coach for all ages and the skill-set for Acting translates exactly to the skill set for Public Speaking. Additionally, the warm-up exercises one employs as an Actor will help Public Speaking students to achieve a level of comfort and relaxation that will prove to be highly beneficial.

Reading

I am a Writer and Actress with over 20+ Years of experience. Communication is the bread and butter of these fields, and both require careful and critical reading skills. I am also a voracious recreational reader, so I appreciate the important role that good reading plays in the life of every man, woman, and child.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

I am a Writer and Actress with over 20+ Years of experience. Communication is the bread and butter of both of these fields and Etymology has been my life-long love and hobby. I find Vocabulary, the history of words, and all aspects of language to be great fun, and I look forward to sharing that excitement!

Energetic and encouraging tutor.

Denise had a well full of encouragement and energy. Getting connected with the emotion of my speech helped me relate my message. I hope to dig a little deeper for understanding and to "have fun" with the presentation. Thanks, Denise
