About Resa

All students have the talent and capacity to achieve their educational dreams and reach their goals. As a tutor with over twenty years experience, I am here to help you overcome any obstacle in your way. Sometimes we just need help and a kind friend to guide us through material so that we can see it clearly and realize we deep down on some level already understood it. My approach as a tutor is friendly and highly effective.

I have worked with students of all ages in a variety of settings and from many backgrounds and helped them with literature, reading comprehension, English as a Second Language, academic, creative and professional writing skills basic study skills and am looking forward to offer you my expert tutoring to help you reach your academic goals. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa and a BA in English Literature with a Minor in Theater Arts from Hofstra University. I am also a founding editor of an international literary journal and work as a writing coach and manuscript consultant. I look forward to tutoring you!

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.

English

I have a BA in English. Aside from my tutoring work, I am also a founding editor of an international literary journal. I work as a book coach and writing consultant, and have read wildly and well in my life.

Literature

I have a strong background in literature and writing that includes being a founding editor of an international literary journal. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing, a BA in English Literature with a Minor in Theater Arts and am on the faculty of a writing school in LA and have many years of tutoring experience. I have read widely and well in my own life and grew up in an educator's family in a household filled with books and love for literature.

Public Speaking

My background in theater, both directing and my study of acting gives me the qualification to tutor in Public Speaking, When I lived and worked in St. Petersburg Russia one of the jobs I had was coaching professors in English language public speaking so they could attend international conferences. I also helped them write speeches and coached them in how to argue a position when on an academic panel. In my coaching work, I have also coached writers on how to give effective readings. I can help anyone overcome stage fright, and fear of public speaking and am a patient and kind tutor in this field.

Reading

I hold an MFA in Creative Writing, a BA in English with a minor in Theater. I have had experience tutoring young children in reading when I lived and worked in Russia.

Theater

In college I minored in theater and then worked in New York as an assistant to a director of a major revival of a Broadway play, wrote two plays that were produced, one in an off off Broadway theater and one in a dutch arts festival. I have also staged a major reading of the final play of a major US playwright and currently coach writers in playwriting and dramatic structure. I am well-read in classical theater, French, British and American theater and know a lot about acting and directing as well. I have been a member of the Dramatist's Guild and am currently working on writing a play.
