I was raised with the perfect blend of creativity and academia, and I feel that I am able to offer that in my work with kids. Because of my performing arts background, Im very open and imaginative. Kids love me and I love kids because I can relate to them on that level. My rigorous academic background at prestigious universities has afforded me both a great education and a strong foundation of discipline. I believe this combination makes me a unique and exciting candidate.
2001- MA (distinction) Acting/Music Theatre- The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (University of London)
2006- BFA (cum laude) Journalism Cinema Studies - New York University (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts
For the past 2 years, I have been tutoring/nannying for a family of 4 children (ages 16, 14, 10, and 6 at present) in St. Johns Wood, London. I would be with them everyday after school and for a few hours each day at the weekend. My main duties included assisting them with their homework assingments in all subjects, helping with school projects, creating study guides and plans for exams, and occasionally taking them on special educational and recreational outings (trips to the theatre, museums, parks, etc.)
I also have tutoring experience from back the US, where I assisted students with test preparation (CAT, SAT, SAT II, ACT) and subject-specific tuition in English, drama, humanities, history, art, and math and sciences.
Hobbies and Interests
