About Sheila

Hello, my friends, students and adults I work with call me Ms. Sheila. I am a Master Storyteller that has been gifted by God with performance skills and has been using this talent since I was eight years old. I am a full-time Storyteller since 2003 sharing a variety of stories. I travel throughout the country providing Stories, Historic Character Presentations, Christian Monologues and Professional Development for Educators to schools, churches, libraries, organizations and Storytelling Festivals. I was involved in forensics for all four years at Annandale high School, Annandale, VA, and while my son was in high school, I was the assistant coach of the Forensics Team.

I have been working with students and adults in the area of public speaking since 1991. I was a long-term substitute teacher for one school year, and then began my work as a full-time professional storyteller and performer. I have been coaching storytellers since 2005, and have seen many of them move to higher levels of presentation and performance, as seen by increased opportunities they have been given. The greatest moments for me are when I see the ones I coach and train become stronger and more confident - and watch as they display growing levels of excellence. I look forward to working with you.

I have years of public speaking experience both as a speaker and as a trainer/coach. I have a strong background in Bible Studies from my own extensive studies and teaching. I have worked with students to assist in reading better and more varied literature, to enhance their vocabulary, their interest and their depth of knowledge.

I have been a theatre performer since I was 8 years old - performing with community theatre groups, in talent shows, giving monologues, writing and performing plays and with school drama. Currently I am the co-director of Drama Ministry at First Baptist Church Norfolk, and I present one-woman shows at theatres around the country.

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.

Bible Studies

I have a strong background in Bible Studies from my own extensive studies and teaching. I have taken various church Bible study classes. I have not tutored anyone in this area, but I have led many adults and students through Bible Studies in both the Old and New Testament. My teaching style is done through teaching games, memory lessons and stories.

Public Speaking

I have been working with students and adults in the area of public speaking since 1991. I am a full-time professional storyteller, performer and motivational/inspirational speaker, presenting at schools, libraries, festivals, conferences and other events. I have been coaching people to do better in public speaking since 2005, and have seen many of my students move to higher levels of presentation and performance, as seen by the increased speaking engagements and opportunities they receive.

I coach public speaking first by listening to the speech or presentation of the person. Then we walk through the positives and negatives together. I also share presentations I do and we listen to the presentations of others, to learn critique skills, which will enable the student to critique and improve themselves. I encourage students to try various public speaking genres, i.e., motivational, persuasion, humorous, fundraising, etc. I foster an atmosphere of comfort with a non-judgmental attitude, which keeps many of my students returning for advice and direction.

Theatre

I have been a theatre performer since I was 8 years old - performing with community theatre groups, in talent shows, giving monologues, writing and performing plays and with school drama. Currently I am the co-director of Drama Ministry at First Baptist Church Norfolk, and I present one-woman shows at theatres around the country. Finally, I am a full-time Professional Storyteller and Historic Character Interpreter.
