About Jocelyn

My passion for tutoring comes from my own experiences as someone who often seeks support and individually tailored instruction. As a magna cum laude graduate, and as someone who has been recognized across various disciplines, I know hard work can pay off! As a creative professional, I know everyone has their own method of learning and understanding. I believe in self discipline, creativity, and commitment, and I believe in collaboratively creating spaces of connection, support, and learning.

I specialize in English, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), and theatre. I have extensive experience as an English tutor, with a focus on reading, analysis, creative writing, and essay writing. I have also taught ESOL for many years. Courses I have taught range from very basic English language acquisition to public speaking and pronunciation to much more advanced and academic English conversation, writing, and reading. Additionally, I am a New York based theatre professional, with performance credits ranging 20 New York premieres. I am very well versed in classic and contemporary drama, and I have considerable experience with script analysis, scene study, monologue prep, as well as an expertise in immersive and interactive theatre.

I like to provide challenging sessions for my students, but I also like to ensure that lessons are not overwhelming. I give regular homework assignments, and I ask for routine feedback. I will never charge for a lesson in which a student or a parent in not 100% satisfied. I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I also try to be adaptable, and I will always offer make-up lessons.

I want to make sure my students have a comfortable, quiet, and accommodating space in which to work. I invite them to come for sessions close to where I reside, and I am happy to travel to meet a student if that is more convenient.

I am eager to hear from you, and I look forward to creating a supportive and exciting learning environment!

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.

Theatre

I am a New York based theater professional. I have performed in more than 20 NYC theatrical premieres, including plays by noted stalwarts such as Mac Wellman, Erik Ehn, Caridad Svich, Sheila Callaghan, and Ken Urban. I am a founding member and the actor in residence of a critically acclaimed theater company dedicated to accessible, full scale, immersive productions. I am very well versed in classic and contemporary drama, and I have considerable experience with script analysis, scene study, monologue prep, as well as an expertise in immersive, installation, and interactive theater. I have given workshops on immersive performance, I have worked as a teaching artist, I have moderated panels on women in theater, and I have been interviewed for several theater publications and journals. I often tailor lessons with an eye toward heightening a student's individual curiosities and point of view. I have trained at a variety of programs, including the O'Neill National Theater Institute and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts; and I have been nominated for a Princess Grace Foundation Award by the highly lauded companies, The New Group and New Georges.
