I work with business leaders and executives across industries to develop strong, engaging presentation skills. The program I establish for my clients is oriented around building productive relationships (and by extension, stronger networks), creating powerful executive presence, enhancing self-awareness and emotional intelligence, and communicating effectively and authentically whether the audience is comprised of one person or one thousand.
My background in the performing arts, as well as my work experience with children, inmates in correctional facilities, and financial advisors at a leading multinational financial services corporation, contributes to a unique coaching approach and blend of styles. I am creative as well as practical, and I am committed to providing the right combination of challenge and support to help cultivate engaging performance presence.
I work comfortably with people in all industries, in all career stages. My clientele consists of people who want to improve their work and boost their impact – as leaders, speakers, and team players. I believe that establishing a productive coaching relationship begins with good chemistry, so before beginning a coaching contract, I like to ensure the fit is right.
Effective coaching relies on an established framework based on trust, challenge, motivation and support. I offer clients the opportunity to push past limits and personal inhibition in order to grow and thrive. No client engagement is the same; I design a customized and engaging program that is specifically relevant to the client, acknowledges individuality, and emphasizes relating and integrity to yield meaningful change. I am honest, direct, and encouraging, and throughout the coaching process I advocate self-reliance and independence. A client can get as much out of the work as they are willing to put in. The goal is to help my clients find a way to unlock their potential by discovering what makes them unique and powerful.
I have worked as an academic manager for the last 5 years. I began by working for Franklin Educational Services in Los Angeles - an educational services consulting company - and was responsible for tutoring middle and high school students in almost all subjects. Through Franklin, I also participated in UCLA-accredited courses in Executive Functioning, which offered training in organization, strategy, paying attention to and remembering details, and managing time and space.
My own love of reading, writing, and learning foreign language has translated directly to the subjects I most like to tutor. My experience has been primarily working with students in humanities subjects as well as in language arts (specifically Spanish and French). Additionally, I have worked with students extensively on test preparation, essay writing, and developing skills for self-advocacy. I also worked consistently as an editor for my older students' writing assignments, including college application essays.
I have worked with all kinds of students with varied interests, skills and needs. I have worked with students in highly competitive grade and high schools and college universities; I have also worked with students with learning and behavioral challenges.
What distinguishes me from other tutors is my interest in getting students to derive their own meaning and value from their schoolwork. Grades are important, undeniably, but I think students stand a far better chance at getting good grades in the long run if they can find a way to make even the subjects they like the least interesting to them. It has been my experience that kids and adults alike do better work when they like the work they're doing. My view is there is always something positive to find, always something to get out of an experience, and my goal is to help my students get the most out of what they're doing. EXECUTIVE COACHING

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.
