About Leslie

I have a bachelor's degree of music. I have studied voice for 12 years. I auditioned and was accepted to New York City Opera. I oversaw master classes at Disney.

I have lectured at five schools and universities. I have produced two events; a concert and screenings where I introduced the artists and gave a speech. I have addressed actors at symposiums for improving audition technique. I was hand picked to introduce a film.

I would love to share my love of reading and writing with you. Storytelling is a great gift that teaches us to understand the world around us in a more intimate and detailed way.

What makes my particular background unique is having worked with screenwriters directors producers artists in some of the most beloved theatrical productions both here in the US and around the world as well as film. I have learned to speak in public and mentor students/performers on self-esteem. I wish to share that confidence building asset with you.

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

Over the course of my career I have been invited by several universities and the Interlochen Center for the Arts - to speak on behalf of my career in film and Theatre which involved my giving lectures on the disciplines of public speaking, knowing your subject matter, and conveying confidence.

I focus my attention on practicing a speech, finding different ways of presenting it and ways to improve upon quieting the nerves.

For the better part of two years I assisted my friend at his Actors Studio to speak to potential actors on the value of learning how to focus with your audience and keep them engaged.

As a part of my responsibilities to Disney's The Lion King I had to meet with diplomats from different countries in order to gain their cooperation in bringing in South African actors to new companies.
