About Alison

I hold a Master's in French literature and spent several years in France. I work professionally as an actor and director (and occasional puppeteer). I hold a MFA in acting and am currently pursuing my PhD in theatre. And theatre is a passion for me.

I tutor the subjects I love. As a student, I have always thrived because I have been able to engage with my studies in a way that I hope to help you engage too. I love performance, but with two college professors for parents, I have always been very academically minded also. With over seven years experience, I have both tutored and taught French, Theatre, English, Writing Composition, and Speech at high school and college levels.

I have always been an avid reader and particularly enjoy textual analysis. My qualifications in French and Theatre have allowed me to cross over into English and I have taught a number of college English classes, including literature and composition. My own writing abilities have been honed through study and through several publications, including a monograph on French novels.

I would be very happy to find out your needs and craft a session that will most benefit you or your child. Please contact me to discuss hours, scheduling, or with any questions. I am also open to negotiating my fees.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Theater

I hold an MFA in acting from Sarah Lawrence College, New York (2007). I have worked professionally as an actor and as a director. During my time at SLC I was involved in theatre outreach, which included running workshops for elementary school students. I also ran workshops in theatre as part of the Summer High School Writing intensive held at SLC. I taught theatre production at Guilford Technical Community College in Jamestown, NC after graduating SLC. My directing credits include the Young and Hungry Festival, aimed at involving under 25s in theatre. I really enjoy coaching young people to connect with the text, their body, or their scene partner. I aim to be both caring and rigorous and to instil confidence and professionalism in my students.
