About Nina

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from High Point University in May with a BA in Performance Theatre and Communications. In high school, I took AP English, AP Literature, AP Psychology, AP Biology, and Honors Poetry. I am originally from CT and when I was 16, I lived and studied in Cordoba, Spain.

I peer tutored throughout high school and have taught numerous workshops within the arts. I have a background in Physical Theatre and just relocated to Las Vegas to work for Cirque du Soleil. I enjoy coming up with creative ways to tutor a student so that it is both interactive and exciting for him/her to learn.

I have studied Spanish from elementary school to my first year of college. I lived in Spain for a summer when I was 16 with a family that did not speak English.

I consider English, Writing, and Literature to be my strongest subjects. In 2015, I graduated from Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre; therefore, I am also well versed in public speaking/performing.

I enjoy working with kids and adults. My goal is to work to each students own needs to help them grow while learning to enjoy the work so they have the tools they need to succeed. I have been a tutor through Wyzant for almost a year.

I am happy to answer any questions regarding tutoring and experience. I have flexible hours and am willing to work around any schedule!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

In May of 2016, I will graduate with a degree in Theatre Performance from High Point University. Last year, I graduated from the Professional Training Program at the esteemed Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre in Blue Lake, CA. I have been performing since age eight and am trained in voice, contemporary theatre, Shakespeare, Clown, Commedia Dell'Arte, acrobatics, and more. I worked for Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas from July - November of 2015.

Track & Field

In high school, I Cross Country and Varsity Track and Field. My main event, was the 100 m and 4x100 m. I also ran the 200 m and competed in the long jump.
Since then, I still run five to six days a week doing different endurance workouts mixing distance, sprinting, and weight training.

Teaching me from having no prior Spanish before has been challenging and it has been great ! Nina takes her time and helps you learn by relating it and making it fun. Highly Recommended.
