About Elle

I have been a teacher all of my adult life! Why? because the relationship between teacher and student is where true learning happens! I have grown over the years because of my wonderful students, from elementary, to High School and now, at college-- Penn State University. Although I teach public speaking, acting, and directing, I am also a certified yoga teacher. I always bring what I know about somatic intelligence into the performance aspects of acting and public speaking.

In the last two years I have developed a private tutoring component. One on one tutoring is so precise, and customized.
It is possible to clarify goals, strategies and problem solving in a very direct and intense way in private sessions.

My extensive theatre background combined with my yoga training, has provided me with an incredibly rich foundation for all aspects of performance. I teach the nuances of voice, gesture, body language and emotional portrayal. I also have a solid knowledge base in the Greek tradition of rhetoric and speech construction. I have taught public speaking at a number of colleges and universities: Penn State University, Messiah College, Wilson College, Elizabethtown College.. I am also a public speaker in my own right and deliver speeches on the topic of personal development.

I attended college in theatre on a scholarship for acting and won many awards in that area. I have worked professionally in theatre, as an actor, and director, and I owned a drama studio and produced a coffee house musical venue. I currently own the business -- The Elements of New Life Scripts which consists of a theatre curriculum that helps people to reach their potential in their lives, relationships, work and art! I have taught theatre courses for a number of colleges and universities.

I can help students to create a "package" of classes designed to reach their specific goals. My public speaking and theatre classes can be augmented by personal development work with New Life Scripts. Contact me for more details and a "combo package."
