Drama teacher/tutor offering hands on and comprehensive text work, character development, improvisation, scene study, monologues, musical theatre and more!

Methodology

My teaching methods are based on a creative learning approach. I do a quick check-in with the student and review the homework or where we last left off. If there are any questions or areas of confusion, I pinpoint the issue and we can make a song about it perhaps or go about learning the subject matter in a different way that makes more sense to the student and is taught in a way that is encouraging and fun for the student.

My acting classes are based on the teachings of Stanislavsky and Chekhov , and Scott Swan. Students who are interested in digging into finding a sense of the 'real' and reacting naturally in fantastical situations, would greatly benefit from my classes. I like to help actors delve into the text and be the best physical and mental storyteller that they can be.

Background

I am BA graduate from the University of Alberta, majoring in Drama and Theatre. I also received my TESL certification from Inlingua Victoria, a language school out of Victoria, BC. I am a singer-songwriter/musician, so I love to bring music into the classroom and help make learning fun.

I specialize in teaching Drama to ages 6 to adult - improv, comedy, dramatic acting, scene study, script work, musical theatre, ESL from youth to adult, and English/Language Arts from elementary school to University/College/Master's Degree editing and proofreading.

Send me a message for more information. I'd love to hear from you!

CASHIER, WHOLE FOODS, AUGUST 2017-MARCH 2018
I worked as a cashier and floater at Whole Foods, which gave me so much joy and experience, as I love to meet new people and positively affect their day. I used my ability to multitask, my passion and enthusiasm for natural food, and my organization and professionalism to succeed at this job.

As an Assistant Team leader at Aveda, I have honed my communication and administration skills that are required to help the team be organized, on time and ready to carry out their various duties. I used my knowledge of technology and computer programs to send in weekly monetary reports, charting the team’s progresses, and was responsible for making plans for better results as well as carrying out those plans, as well as a primary makeup artist. I was also able to gain a further understanding of my previous knowledge of essential oils, natural skincare, aromatherapy and wellness.

CHILDMINDING ATTENDANT — YMCA, FROM 2014-2015
I worked with young children aged 3-5 in a secure setting where I supervised them playing, and I interacted with them and kept them safe. I loved bringing my inner child to life again as I read to them, played games, organized and supervised crafts, while supporting them to be whatever they wanted to be with patience and support.

MUSIC TEACHER, CUSTOM MUSIC LESSONS — 2015-2016
I taught voice, guitar and ukulele to a young girl privately, and traveled to her house to work with her independently.

DESIGN STUDIES RESEARCH ASSISTANT, UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, 2015
I worked for Bonnie Sadler Takach, an Associate Professor of Design Studies regarding how to integrate community design projects into design education.
