About Cheryl

I am a certified Theatre Arts teacher in the state of Texas and I recently finished my Masters degree in Theatre arts as well. My passion is acting and helping my student actors find the character from within themselves.

In addition to my talents in theatre, I have a talent for understanding and interpreting what I read, as well as writing. If you need someone to help you understand, poetry, literature, or Shakespeare, then I am the tutor for you. I received a 100% on both of the Wyzant reading and writing proficiency tests and I believe I could help students from the elementary level through high school level in the areas of reading, writing and speech. I am a certified teacher for middle/high school, and am available to coach any age group.

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.

Proofreading

I can help with reading written work for flow, content, grammatical structure, author's voice, and coherence.

Public Speaking

I am a certified Theatre teacher and believe that I have the skills necessary to assist someone in their ability to speak in front of an audience, whether acting in a play, or giving a speech, the skills needed are primarily the same. Verbal expression, non-verbal expression, and the skilled use of enunciation, diction, rate, pause, inflection, etc., are areas that I feel confident in coaching.

Reading

I can help with reading comprehension of difficult material such as Shakespeare, poetry or other material written in verse or old English.

Theatre

I have had a passion for the Theatre since I was in middle school. I attended Columbia College of the Arts in Chicago, and although I didn't ultimately obtain my degree from that institution, the foundation in acting was laid. I eventually received my Bachelors degree from Excelsior College out of NY, and was certified to teach Theatre Arts in Texas public school districts. I was employed by KISD immediately upon my graduation and have been teaching Theatre at the high school level for the last 8 years.

2 years ago, I began my pursuit of my Masters in Theatre Arts through the University of Houston, and plan to graduate with my MA in Theatre by Dec 2011. I feel that my strength lies in my ability to assist my students in delving into the psyche of their character and reaching within themselves to find the truth within the situation their character is dealing with in the play. I believe strongly in the work of Uta Hagen and method acting as it were.

Vocabulary

I can help students increase their understanding of a variety of words not commonly used in daily conversation.

Writing

I can help with students in understanding how to write a good paper, speech, review, critique, or creative writing project and assist in the understanding of plot structure, flow and voice in writing.
