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.
At UK, I designed my own major - Voice and Speech for Theatre. While there, I served as a speech, diction, and dialect coach on several productions. Since then, I've conducted seminars as well as private coaching sessions on delivery of both prepared speeches as well as off-the-cuff addresses at professional dinners, including one-on-one sessions with a president of the Louisville, Lexington, and National Association of Home Builders. I was also a guest lecturer for Public Speaking courses at McKendree University, and taught breathing and relaxation exercises, as well as diction tips. I also served as Dialect Coach on the independent film, Nice Guys Sleep Alone.
I have many years of theatre experience, as a coach, teacher, and director. At UK, I taught theatre and speech, as an undergraduate and post-graduate student. I also served as a speech, diction, and dialect coach on several UK productions. After college, I taught theatre classes at the Ursuline School of Music and Drama, and was recruited to teach and direct at Sacred Heart Academy. I also spent three years running the Children's Theatre program at the Little Colonel Playhouse in Pewee Valley.
