About Sonja

I am an actress. A student. A wife. A teacher. And a performer. I speak three languages, and write in two. I am passionate about the world - and exposure to it has made me who I am today. I want to help people discover who they truly are and bring them to a place of freedom where they believe in themselves, and begin to see obstacles as opportunities to succeed!

I have 10 years of immersion in French speaking countries (Ivory Coast and Belgium). I attended school from kindergarten to 5th grade in the Belgium school system where all my studies were conducted in French. My minor from Vanderbilt University was in French Studies, and I have experience of tutoring various ages and ethnicities. My cross-cultural background and years of humanitarian experience have enabled me to communicate across various social/cultural barriers, see each individual's potential, and thus tailor a curriculum that will meet each individual student's needs and learning style. I believe learning should be fun, and desire to see people's minds transformed and renewed who struggle with believing in themselves, and their potential as they learn to change the world!

I believe in the students I work with.

If you want a chance to grow and learn more about YOUR potential through the subject which may be challenging you, I want to help you go on journey of freedom, self-discovery, and personal achievement through that subject matter!

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.

Ballet

I began my training at the age of 7 in Belgium under Russian instruction. I continued to train in classical ballet from age 7-10, then began Pointe classes at 11. From the age of 14-17 I danced with Ballet Arts Inc., a ballet production company located in Jackson, TN. From ages 24-present I have taken classes consistently at either Vanderbilt University, with the Vanderbilt Dance Program (under Jennifer McNamara) and at Redding City Ballet, in Redding, CA. I continue to train and grow since I feel it is my responsibility to do so as an inspiring instructor of this classical art form.
