Boston University (Acting)
Hello everyone :) Recent graduate of Boston University, where I received my BFA in Acting and also continued my studies in Psychology, Biology, and English literature and composition. I never expected to find myself in the path of teaching, but my first summer in 'post-grad life' I happened upon the fortunate experience of being a 1:1 aid and tutor for a wonderful, fourteen year-old boy on the autism spectrum, who taught me patience, ambition, and out-of-the-box thinking. Since then I have flourished in the realm of tutoring and teaching, from students at elementary level all the way up to college undergraduates, whether in the subjects of math and sciences or in the artful crafts on the stage and in the kitchen.
I look forward to meeting with you, and discovering how we can collaborate on an individual basis to formulate a teaching plan that is both engaging and illuminating for either yourself or your child, or both. Education is a group process, the 'old' sharing with the 'young' of their learnings and experiences, and I am glad to help make it a fun and successful process.

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 had the fortunate experience in the summer of 2012 in Boston, MA of meeting and working with a wonderful boy of 14 on the autism spectrum. Five days a week for two months I attended a creative arts day-camp in Brookline to aid and assist the boy, developing his social skills with the other campers and deepening his creative expression; then, after a day's camp session was over I traveled back to the boy's home to meet up with his younger brother, 11, also on the spectrum, to tutor them in reading, writing and math for a couple of hours while his parents were still at work.
Every week I met with a combination of his parents, his general therapist, his speech therapist, and his special-learning therapist to discuss the boy's progress and how to best continue my time with him. Following his mother's book, "Parenting Your Child with Autism" and other reading suggestions, I came to learn a great deal about the condition, and how to approach each person on an individual basis. It's important both to me and those I've collaborated with to learn how the child perceives the world, and how to assimilate that unique outlook with that of the average person. All the while, of course, still providing the most comfortable and enjoyable experience possible.
I began crafting in the kitchen at an early age thanks to my aunt's homecooking, and have since followed my nose to self-teach my way into cooking, baking and desert creating. My specialties range from Thanksgiving feasts to savory butternut squash soup in homemade breadbowls to the illusive-and-decadent New York cheesecake. If the desire to create is as strong as the want to consume, I'm positive we'll be able to mold those hands into self-made masters of any and all cuisines.
While I attended Sacopee Valley High School in Hiram, ME, I volunteered with the local schools of MSAD55 to read with the elementary students (1st-3rd graders), and also performed in plays and musicals with them as both a fellow cast member and assistant teacher in workshops with them for acting/singing (2nd-6th graders). While at Boston University for my four years, I privately tutored a handful of students in the K-6th range in reading, writing and math, as well as general babysitting; at my last summer in Boston (2012) I worked with children at a creative arts day-camp in ages ranging from 7-14 years old, enriching their creativity and self-expression through all forms of art (performing, musical, visual, literary, mechanical, etc.). I find it necessary, especially for those of the younger age, to inter-mix play and education, so that we can better bridge the gap the child might be experiencing in his/her transition from the home-life he/she is accustomed to with the more formal and structured environment in the school setting; through the use of my theatre background and child-like spirit I'm able to find a method for each individual child to best introduce and sustain the fun in learning.
I am a recent graduate of Boston University's BFA Acting program, where I studied the acting techniques of Meisner, Stanislavski, and Grotowski; the movement techniques of Alexander, Overlie, and Laban; and the vocal techniques of Linklater and Toussaint; as well as thorough instruction in Shakespeare, theatrical and film acting, dramatic literature, and others. I've two years of experience in coaching and teaching.
