University of Michigan (BFA - Acting)
From the midwest, but also a big city kid, I've been enjoying living in New York and working as a professional actor and child care professional since moving here in September. I have experience with students of all ages as a babysitter, tutor, camp counselor, coach, and theatre director. I have a profound love of English and History (my two strongest subjects) and am a gifted writer.
As a honors student at the University of Michigan I was proud to be a part of the America Reads program, where I taught second and third grade students in Detroit, MI reading and writing concepts and helped them improve and utilize the skills I taught them in their classroom at a high level. I also edited essays through the English department at the University and have tutored the students I babysit here in the city.

I am constructive and push my students to do their best and I am exceptionally gifted at motivating my students to help them get the most out of their talents.
I am a creative, insightful, fun and dedicated individual with a passion for working with students. I promise to work hard at every session and engage with my students on a personal and professional level.

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.
