About Stephanie

I graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in broadcast journalism, International Relations, and Spanish. I have served as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Bogota, Colombia, helping college students learn English. I have also lived in the Dominican Republic.

My experiences in these three areas have led me to want to help people:
1. Learn Spanish
2. Help Spanish speakers learn English (ESL)
3. Help people perfect their English speaking skills and writing
3. Teach latin dancing such as Salsa
4. Video Production

I also ran sprints and hurdles in high school and played basketball. I am proficient in those areas as well. I also have experience as a television reporter, so I am very knowledgeable about public speaking. I interview people daily and can pick up on bad grammar, incorrect English and other nuances of bad speaking.

If you need help in any of these areas, contact me.

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.

Basketball

I have played basketball for over ten years. I played on middle school and high school teams as the point guard. I understand zone and man defense, along with how to shoot a layup and a jump shot. Free throws are my specialty and I also know how to sprint down the floor.
My tutoring technique would focus on free throws, running drills, defensive stance, layup, dribbling blind-folded, and shooting.

Public Speaking

My professional career is a television reporter and anchor. I was a weekend anchor in Kirksville, MO. Currently, I am a television reporter in Shreveport, LA. I have a degree in Broadcast Journalism. I interview people on a daily basis and decide through a process of elimination who I will include in my stories. I have interviewed people as famous as the Rev. Jesse Jackson, and former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, all the way down to the average person walking the streets. I know what makes a good speaker and can identify problems in people's speech. I have to listen to people's speeches all the time and decide on what was most important. I would like to help people are who fear public speaking.

Salsa Dancing

I lived in Colombia, where salsa is "el Rey" (King). I used to dance salsa every weekend at various nightclubs. It is my passion. In college, I auditioned and performed in a Latin dance troupe where we often times performed before thousands. Currently I attend local Latin night clubs. I can teach salsa, merengue, bachata, and cumbia.

Track & Field

In high school, I was the captain of my track team. I ran all sprints - 100, 200, 400, relays - 4 by 1, 4 by 2, 4 by 4, and the 300 meter hurdles. Our team was two spots away from making it to states in Ohio, where many top track athletes originate. My fastest split in the 4 by 1 was a 12.6. My fastest 300 m hurdle was a 45--.

My teaching style is making them do the exercises I did when I ran. Weightlifting, running different lengths of the track under various time limits. Also mixing in 30 minutes run around town. Work on high knees and hurdle form.

Video Production

My career is a television reporter/ multimedia journalist. Basically I write, video tape, and edit stories everyday all day. I have experience using Avid, Final Cut, and Edius. My Avid experience is nine years, my Edius experience is 1 year. My Final Cut experience is 3 years. I have been using a video camera to shoot video for four years. I am well versed in shooting video for news and production. I can teach someone how to shoot video, what to look for, and tricks to editing such as wide, medium, tight, color correction, different effect. I also have my own YouTube Channel where some of my work has over 10,000 views. I have produced and edited my own documentary in a foreign country. I have more than 37 videos on that channel. I have videotaped and edited news stories, documentaries and pageants. before.
