About Randa

Hi, I'm definitely a patient but determined tutor. I will let you learn at your own pace but with a special loving nudge to increase your capacity and abilities. Obviously, you need a tutor to help you succeed in some particular subject or discipline; otherwise, you wouldn't be searching on the Wyzant site. Once we've met and you tell me about you and what it is you are striving for, I will go to work for you making every effort with you to make that special something happen. I specialize in three different areas: English grammar and reading; Career Development; and Theatre.

ENGLISH: If English is your most difficult subject, let me help you master the pitfalls and blunders of your daily assignments. Learn how to approach your English assignment with ease rather than anguish.

As an Elementary teacher; a Middle School English and reading teacher in Michigan; then, a GED program English Teacher for military personnel at Fort Knox, KY., I've enjoyed watching the turn-around success experienced by my students once they've realized the exactness of our language.

Let me give you the hands-on, "tricks of the trade", tutorial assistance you need to master your "worst" subject. Contact me! We'll walk though the world of words, phases and sentences together for your over-all classroom success.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT: If you want to learn how to write a resume that will "win" you the interview; and then, the interview techniques that will "win" you the job? Contact me...I'll show you how!

Through my vast knowledge and experience of workplace and workforce trends and programs: personal evaluation, assessment and life skills planning; job readiness preparation; resume building; interview techniques; job development; placement and retention . Contact me! I will help you create a career path plan that will lead to your successful job or dream career.

If THEATRE is your passion, then: CURTAIN UP! I've built many a theatre from the ground up. STAGE LEFT: While teaching in Michigan, I took a totally blank stage with a 1000 seat auditorium and created it into a full-range Community Theatre for Junior High and High School Students; as well as, hundreds of community participants. STAGE RIGHT: While in New York and New Jersey, I did the same for Holiday Inns while providing them with the best of dinner theatre art forms. DOWN CENTER: From straight plays to musicals' and back again, I have been a singer, an actress, a producer, a director, a stage manager, an agent, and, yes, even a stagehand. UP CENTER: DIM LIGHTS to LIGHTS OUT.

HOUSE LIGHTS ON...CONTACT ME...let me know what "star-quality" plan you wish to create. We'll do it together!

From 1964-1971, I was a teacher Mt. Clemens, Michigan where I built a full theatre from the ground up. It initially was nothing but a blank stage and a 1000 seat auditorium. After its creation, it became the biggest and most successful of its kind in the region.
