About Rebecca

I am a third generation educator, following in the footsteps of my maternal grandparents, mother, and aunts. Growing up in Baltimore, I began assisting in classrooms at the age of 16 and have been teaching in some capacity ever since. I became the founding artistic director of The Cradle Theatre Company, a non profit, education based theatre company at the age of 20. I led the company through six successful seasons while completing her dual degree in Performance and Directing at Fordham University and my post graduate teaching certificate at Trinity College, London. I have been working with students in the South Bronx for two years teaching film, playwriting, acting, improvisation, Shakespeare, and general academics.

As a lifelong bookworm, literature and writing have always been a big part of my life. I am a tough editor and try and push my students to write with clarity as well as originality. However, I do believe it is important to engage students WHERE they are. I allow them to read and write about what they are interested in; igniting a love for reading before guiding them towards material out of their comfort zone.

I am passionate about history and its importance in fostering well rounded students. It is the key to producing good citizens. I like to work backwards from current events, helping students understand the current ramifications for past events. History can often be a challenging subject for students, so I like to use theatre education techniques in order to engage in the subject fully.

I have been working professionally in the theatre since I was seven years old. I started an educational theatre company at age 20 and have seen former students go on to top performing arts high schools and colleges including LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts, Emerson College, Rutgers University, and SUNY Purchase. I am currently enrolled in the MFA Directing program at The New School for Drama. Theatre is not a hobby, it is my life and passion and my greatest joy is sharing that with others.

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.
