About Heidi

My experience consists of over ten years teaching composition, reading skills, literature, and drama courses to middle school, high school, and college students. I am a graduate of Hofstra University and received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Master of Science in Secondary Education with a concentration in English/ Language Arts. Over the course of my career I have been certified in the states of New York, Connecticut and Washington. While my knowledge, experience, and passions are vast, my areas of expertise are composition/ essay skills, literature/ reading comprehension, persuasive techniques in argumentation, grammar skills, and vocabulary acquisition. I have been told that I do a great job maintaining standards in spite of deficiencies in student skill level and have proven success in bringing students up to those standards and beyond.

A good sense of humor and a creative personality develop a positive rapport and learning environment. I also have an extensive background as an actor and enjoy hiking, bird-watching, traveling, classic rock and roll, and can play a few simple songs on the guitar.

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.

Public Speaking

I have taught Business Communications and have done quite a bit of public speaking over the years. Public speaking skills were required by various management and training positions I have held in addition to teaching/lecturing in middle school, high school, and college. I have worked on and off as an actor all my life and have taken voice classes with coaches who have worked with well-known Shakespearean actors. I also earned an "A" in a high school speech class and have done improvisation.
