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 have a Master of Fine Arts in Speech. In graduate school I was a teaching assistant in the Speech department. I taught high school Speech for four years. My teaching methods included requiring a written outline, oral and written criticism, peer reviews and video taping speeches so students could see for themselves what they needed to work on.

I have also taught Acting to students aged 8 to 18 at BroadwayKids&Company School of Performing Arts.

Theater

I have both college and graduate school credits in all aspects of theatre.

I have been performing in theatre since I was in high school. I have taught stagecraft, history of theatre and acting at the high school level. In addition, I have taught acting to people aged 8 to 18 in both a parks and recreation and a performing arts school atmosphere. I have directed or assistant directed nearly thirty shows, including "straight" plays and musicals, comedy and drama. These directing assignments have included elementary, junior high, high school and community theatre productions.

Writing

In the course of my career, I have written newsletters for several different groups. I have served as publicity director (writing press releases) for several others. When people want things well written or accurately proofread, I am the one they call on. Let me help improve your grammar, your style and hopefully your imagination.
