I am lifelong learner who has had a successful career in higher education and the non-profit sector. I specialize in tutoring in the following subjects: Humanities, Art, History, Theatre Speech and English. I am also an experienced theatre director and acting coach. I can prepare students for a variety of auditions, educational and professional. I am also experienced in coaching individual events in competitive forensics on the high school and University level.

I have over 15 years mentoring and tutoring students for ACT, SAT, homework projects, continued learning training in reading, writing and English, competitive forensic festivals, public speaking. My belief is that the unique intelligences of each person must be regarded, challenged, and nurtured. To do this, my instructional technique is based on kinesthetic and activity-based learning. I make learning fun by placing information in a context that the student can relate to. I employ clear milestones that allow assessment to be measured based on the strengths of the individual.

I hold myself to a high standard and therefore always ask for feedback from student and parent and I will never require payment if dissatisfied with the outcomes of the instruction. I am flexible with my time but do require a 24 hour cancellation period with the option to reschedule. To ensure the students have a quite focused learning environment I usually use one of the many library locations in my area. I will consider traveling to your home for instruction as well
