I received my B.A. in Theatre from the University of Southern California. I specialize in Reading, Writing, English, and Essay Editing. Throughout high school and college, I edited, proof-read, and helped strengthen numerous friends' essays and writing.
My theatre training has taught me how to communicate with many different kinds of people in an engaging and interesting manner; I think this will help my communication with parents and students to make sure both are aware of the students' goals and progress, and to coordinate scheduling with parents. I have coached many students in acting, which demands knowledge of the material and determining whether or not the material has been comprehended in depth, and whether or not the material is being communicated. If the goal isn't being achieved, I'm able to ask questions to determine where the gap in sufficient understanding of the material lies, and to explain the material in a new way, with specific directions and notes to guide the students achieve understanding and their goals with the material.
After graduating from USC, I lived in the south of France for a year to continue my education at a university there, and to explore new areas of interest. I learned French through immersion, conversation, and classes, and love to tutor beginning levels of French.
English was always my favorite subject in school. I continue to read and write on a daily basis. I love editing essays and teaching students how to make their essays stronger, and I would like to encourage a love for reading and writing in all my students. I find the intricate rules of grammar intriguing, and hope to bring excitement and curiosity to even the most mundane writing tasks.
