About Hailey

I am recent graduate of Denison University where I double majored in English - Creative Writing and Dance. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa and held several scholarships for my achievements in both dance and creative writing. I have had publications in the genres of creative nonfiction and critical literary analysis.

I have extensive experience working with young people of all ages from newborn to high schoolers. This includes over ten years of babysitting, three summers as a full time nanny for kids ranging from 6 months to eleven years, teaching intro level dance classes for 3-5 year olds and Ballet II for late elementary/early middle school, and choreographing the Spring Musicals at a middle/high school near my university for the past three years. I have a positive attitude and am passionate about the things I do and about making learning fun and exciting. I relate well to kids and have found they eventually enjoy being around me and working with me, as I do with them.

Besides my degree in English, I have always been a passionate reader. It was one of my favorite pastimes as a child and remained so growing up. I believe I could encourage children to find reading a fun activity and therefore help them to improve by doing. I also have high levels of understanding regarding grammatical construction and how to structure and compose arguments in a paper. One of my closest friends in college was an international student from China who really struggled with the level of reading and writing she was expected to do in English, her second language. I became adept at helping her understand why grammatical rules were the way they were and at helping her better understand what she read and rephrase what she wrote. I believe these skills can be translated to younger students as well.

I would love to hear from you and hope to be able to work with and assist your child in learning. Feel free to contact me and I will try to respond within twenty four hours!

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.

Ballet

I have studied ballet since the age of three. I earned a BA in dance from Denison University where my senior research project was to choreograph, teach, and produce an original story ballet. I was also the president of the Ballet Club in college and have taught beginning ballet and Ballet II. I have performed soloist roles as Marzipan, Candycanes, and the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Nutcracker. I have attended summer intensives at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp (through which I was also a part of the International Ballet Ensemble in the summer of 2010), The American College Dance Festival Association, Parsons Dance, River North Dance Company, and Jazz Dance World Congress.
