Clark University Worcester, MA (Theatre Arts and English)
I teach Theatre and Movement classes and workshops with students from 5th grade to college. In addition to these subjects I also tutor in writing with a focus on college admissions essays. Please see the below sections for more specifics.
Theatre -- I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts from Clark University and I am currently a professional actor of both film and theatre. Most recently I taught at Trinity Repertory Company's summer program. My classes included Shakespeare, scene study, playwriting and movement. I have been trained in many methods of acting and I enjoy teaching all of them as well as teaching the language of a play--Shakespeare or contemporary.
Ballet -- I was trained in both classical and contemporary ballet. Early in my career I performed with the American Repertory Ballet, and most recently I performed as a soloist in an Alvin Ailey Extension showcase. I teach ballet with an emphasis on performance; whether or not you choose to perform, this training gives a dancer charisma and charm on and off stage. I teach barre, center, and pointe work.
Writing -- I also have a B.A. in English from Clark University. I am very familiar with literature from the 16th Century through contemporary. I teach an approach to writing that is, what I consider, story based. At the most basic you are looking for your college essay, or poem, or analysis to convey a message. My approach to writing asks, do you do so in the most clear and eloquent way possible? I teach Theatre and Movement classes and workshops with students from 5th grade to college. In addition to these subjects I also tutor in writing with a focus on college

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.
I have been studying both classical and contemporary ballet for almost 20 years. In my early career I performed with the American Repertory Ballet, and most recently I was a soloist in a showcase at the Alvin Ailey Extension. I teach both beginners and students who are looking to elevate their technique.
