About Nancy

I have studied acting & performed in the US and in the UK - having spent 26 years living in London. I have experience teaching adults and children in a variety of settings, and most recently have worked with performers (ages 12-23) at the Weston Drama Workshop, as well as with younger students (ages 5-9) at LINX drama classes in Wellesley MA. Both of my sons still ask for advice with monologues, audition preparation, editing of essays, and they are both deeply committed to pursuing theater as a profession (the eldest is at a BFA program in Acting, the youngest is in every play possible at his high school).

I am a professional actress by trade, and have also had some writings published online; I've assisted with editing in a prolific writers' group as well as with two published authors. I have compiled and run educational workshops to assist others in learning how to facilitate groups and to improve their teaching skills.

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.

Theater

I graduated cum laude with a double major in English and Theater Studies from Yale University. I then attended drama school in London, a three year acting course, and stayed in England for 26 years working in theatre (both regional repertory and the West End), radio, film and television. I also taught an acting class to ballet students at the Royal College of Ballet. I have recently returned to acting in plays, having just performed in "Doubt" at the Flyleaf Theater company; and have compiled and performed in the UK and in the US (including at the Duplex in NYC) several cabaret style shows. I recently directed a staged reading for Weston Drama Workshop and have had private acting students at Brookline and Newton North High Schools.
