Hello! My name is Tinne (TIN-ne). I am excited to meet you to talk about your learning goals. The most important part of our tutoring relationship is for us to build a strong working relationship, so you can be successful. What are your dreams and goals, your strengths and challenges, and what kind of learner are you?

You should know what kind of teacher I am! I'm a retired Dance and Theater educator, with thirteen years of service in public education. In the decades before I got my teaching license, I worked as a teaching artist in the Twin Cities and the New York City metropolitan area, teaching hundreds of students, pre-K to adults. I am also an actress, and I look forward to returning to the stage as the world opens up!

My areas of expertise include English Literature, (BA, Carleton College, 1983), Acting and Shakespearean performance (National Shakespeare Conservatory, 1991), and Educational Theater (New York University, 1997). Educational Theater encompasses a wide variety of practices, including, but not limited to performance skills. Theater and drama modalities are used around the world to enhance learning across the curriculum. We can find ways to use those learning tools, if you are interested!

I offer particularly strong skills in language and literacy. I provide my students reading and writing support in traditional and non-traditional ways, often using speaking and listening (two under-appreciated aspects of literacy) to explore language, meaning, story, and structure. What kind of learner are you? Perhaps you need to understand themes in a story or novel, and we find alternative ways for you to master the content: Puppets? Movement studies? Write a song? Assemble a collage? We'll find ways for you to succeed, as the learner YOU are.

Let's read together, write together, think together, and build your success. You can do it! I can't wait to get started!
