About Belita

With a very strong background in both speech and theater, I really believe in the Socratic method of teaching; in other words, I employ both visual and verbal methods in my teaching style. I firmly believe that the beauty of education is teaching students to think independently and to question.
Having said that, I also believe it is essential to evaluate a student’s learning style and then adjust according to the student. And that is a very important component of being a great teacher!

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.

Public Speaking

I began my speech communication career in the 7th Grade. As a competitor in high school, I was a Texas State champion and proceeded to acquire a degree in speech communication from Texas Tech. After a successful career as a high school speech and debate coach, I then worked with the Drug Enforcement Administration as their principal "parent" speaker.

Theatre

I have been in theatre since the age of 6. As a senior in high school, I was part of the cast of the 1970 Texas State Championship first place winner. In addition, I hold life-time certification as a secondary theatre teacher and a degree in theatre from Texas Tech University. I have organized my own community theatre group in the county where I live - Clear Creek County Colorado.
