I am an actor and have been a radio host/producer/writer and arts administrator. Over the last several years, I have added teaching to my professions and have prepared hundreds of high school students for their SAT tests in Critical Reading and Writing and LIterature, as well as tutoring high school English. I am also a Theater teacher, and have taught Acting Shakespeare in Wesleyan University's Graduate Liberal Studies program, directed the Oddfellows Playhouse Summer Shakespeare Academy and taught theater majors at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts.
My experience as an editor and writer for the New York Philharmonic, the 92nd Street Y, the Shubert Theater, New Haven and other not-for-profit arts organizations, provides me solid grounding for teaching Writing. My radio career with WQXR-New York and WSHU-Fairfield, also involved extensive writing experience, as well as important insight into how to remain calm under pressure.
I believe in the Life of the Mind, and I know that the best colleges are looking for students who subscribe to that way of life as well. Because of my dedication to a lifetime of broadening my own horizons, I am knowledgeable in an array of subjects. I deeply enjoy sharing with others the profound joy of learning.

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.
I studied classical music privately for ten years. Later in life, I was a writer, editor and publicist for the New York Philharmonic. I also wrote, produced and hosted the radio program, which was dedicated to the love of music, and became a reserve announcer on WQXR-NY, which was, at the time, the largest classical music radio station in the U.S.
