About Jordan

I attended Occidental College of Los Angeles, California. I have edited freshman essays for one of my former professors since my graduation in 2012. I have also participated every summer in the Youth Summer Theater Camp for a Theater Company. I began working there in 2012 as a Technical Theater instructor and was most recently their lead Acting/Performance Instructor. There, I have overseen the creation of musical weekly showcases and supervised extensive staging/blocking while assisting with dance and vocal preparation. I also led daily introductory acting lessons focused on encouraging imagination and the creation of fully realized characters.

My unique background in the arts and a "writing-centric" education has gifted me with an understanding of writing that extends beyond the basic "grammar rules and regulations" business (although that is, of course, of great importance!). I possess a particular strength in helping others to make strong and articulate written arguments while best representing their own special "voice."

Whether you feel as though you just need a little "leg up," or the whole idea of English Literature, Writing, or Verbal Presentation makes your head spin, I'd love to help you figure it out!
