About Nita


Bio

I spent many years of happy and successful teaching, tutoring and guidance work in New York, Colorado and California. This teaching took form first as acting and writing coach, then swiftly grew into full time teaching at private schools and Waldorf high schools in Colorado and California. I am passionate about teaching because I am passionate about learning. Originally from Boulder, CO, I then moved East to New York and then on to London, followed by a leap West to San Francisco and Santa...

I spent many years of happy and successful teaching, tutoring and guidance work in New York, Colorado and California. This teaching took form first as acting and writing coach, then swiftly grew into full time teaching at private schools and Waldorf high schools in Colorado and California. I am passionate about teaching because I am passionate about learning. Originally from Boulder, CO, I then moved East to New York and then on to London, followed by a leap West to San Francisco and Santa Monica, finally settling in beautiful Santa Barbara, CA.

I hold a Bachelors degree Magna Cum Laude from Barnard College, and I followed this course of study with a Master of Fine Arts in Contemporary Performance, with a focus on Teaching and Directing, from Naropa University. I have been a Waldorf high school teacher for five years, and have been teaching and guiding for twelve years in both public and private school environments. In addition to tutoring and guidance work, I am a theater director, a runner, an outdoor enthusiast, a devoted wife, and true lover of all things imaginative and creative.

I treat each and every student like the true shining light that they are; I strive to see the highest potential self in each and every one of my students. My quest as educator is to support and guide each budding soul into full, glorious bloom.

I was an English major in college, and am an excellent proofreader and editor, creative writer, savvy wordsmith, passionate reader, strong coach in public speaking, interviews and oral presentations.

I have a BA and MFA in Theater, excellent skills in directing and acting, strong foundation in design and writing as well.

I look forward to hearing from you and beginning to work together! My job as teacher, counselor and theater director is to help you to SHINE your brightest!

I hold an undergraduate and Master of Fine Arts in Theater. I have been teaching acting, directing and design in middle school and high school and junior college and independent acting schools for the past 8 years.
