I can assist students in developing their skills in reading, analyzing writing and public presentation. I work with each student individually and create lesson plans that are fun and address the particular needs of a student. I believe in the power of positive reinforcement coupled with discipline. If you are willing to try and I can help you reach your goals.
I have been a teacher for over 25 years and taught thousands of students of all ages. Primarily I have worked with students aged 17 to 25. I think that in addition to teaching great skills like how to more effectively read, analyze and express oneself in writing, I also help students to build their confidence and find their own voice. I know I am successful if a student feels empowered and more confident when we are done working together! I have helped a great many students get into graduate school, find dream jobs and develop life skills that have helped them to succeed.
In my working life, I started out as professional actor after going through a rigorous training program at the University of Washington where I got my BFA in acting. I worked in regional repertory theatre and doing commercials for 10 years before branching out to direct plays and run theatres. Later I attended the University of Portland where I got my MFA in directing. I then dedicated the next 23 years of my life to working with young people at Central Washington University. While there I taught acting, directing, voice and diction, writing, dramatic literature, theory and analysis, and how to teach. I have received three awards related to my teaching: "Parents Association Teaching Award", "CWU Faculty Award for Commitement to Inclusivity and Diversity" and a " Woman of Achievement Award" for mentoring and empowering women. In addition, I was selected to go to the Great Teachers Seminar and to attend the New Jersey Project Seminar in multiculturalism. Both of those seminars were great honors.
