About Deidra

I have over a decade of being an international spoken word artist and published author under my belt and my passion is in using my natural talents to make a difference in this world. With a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Theatre and Masters of Fine Arts and a Masters of Business Administration degrees under my belt, I find joy in helping people find their voice as well as making a business out of their natural born gifts. I have a knack for helping people step out of their shells and express themselves and gain confidence. I have previously been an ESL teacher as well as an ABE (Adult Basic Education) teacher and I love teaching people in general. Helping people is a huge part of my life mission!

As an Adult Basic Educator (ABE) I taught adults and students who have not completed a primary education with a diploma or GED. Student's abilities ranged from low confidence to poor. Also as a volunteer of the DC Reads Volunteer reading program, I have visited several schools to assist with teaching elementary students the basic foundation of reading as reading aloud.

I am a seasoned spoken word/poet and published author who has traveled the world to perform and host workshops and provide motivational speaking workshops. I have hosted two monthly poetry shows at Busboys and Poets for the past 10 years as well as run my own company of teaching entertainers how to speak publicly.

As a government contractor in my day job, both Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel are an intricate part of my daily processes. Basic to high-level use of both programs are required to fulfill my daily tasking. I am extremely proficient.

I have my Bachelors of Fine Arts and Masters of Fine Arts in Theatre. I have been taught by professors who have careers in soap operas, regional and national theaters.

I teach in an adaptive manner, meaning that I adapt to the learning level and capability of the student. I teach in tactile, auditory, and visual techniques to capture the learning style of the student. Also, rather than repeating one technique I have multiple methods of capturing and honing in on the learning potential of each student. I understand that learning should be taught based on individuality.
