"A teacher and tutor for nearly 20 years, I specialize in hands-on, interactive, dynamic learning in English, writing, reading, and the performing arts. I'm experienced tutoring both creative and academic writing and am proud to have tutored students who have achieved high scores on the SAT, ACT, and AP English exams, including scores of 5 on the AP English Literature exam, an AP Scholar with Distinction Award, and admission to the Ivy League. I have a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction from Indiana University where I graduated Phi Beta Kappa and was then admitted to the Yale University School of Drama. I’m fully certified by the American Orff Schulwerk Association and trained in Child Development at UCLA, the University of Massachusetts, and the University of Colorado. I also homeschooled my own daughter from pre-school all the way to Columbia University!
Before becoming a teacher and tutor, I was a professional performer and comedian, appearing on Broadway and TV! This background helps me engage students in experiential learning that brings assignments to life. From the most play-based strategies for early reading to the rigors of college-bound literature and writing, I provide tutoring that is engaging, creative, effective, and fun!
As the creator, teacher, and director of The College-Bound Literature and Theatre Lab in Los Angeles, I have developed hands-on, interactive, and imaginative student theatrical experiences of the greatest works of literature including Frankenstein, The Great Gatsby, 1984, Anna Karenina, The Grapes of Wrath, and Moby Dick, as well as contemporary favorites like Broadway’s Hamilton, Harry Potter, and more! I have extensive experience helping students read closely, deepen their comprehension, and write about literature analytically, creatively, and passionately. I’m excited to help my students persuade, imagine, analyze, reflect, reason, and invent on paper with lessons designed to fit each student’s needs and help students find writing joyous, engaging, and inspiring!" less...
