A bit about myself: I'm 33 years old and I've returned to the US after living abroad in London for 4 years where I obtained my Masters degree. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in theatre studies at FSU.
During my masters program in London, I was a tutor/governess for a high profile family of 4 children (aged 5, 9, 13 and 14 at the start of my time with them). I was with this family for 4 years.
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, I'm very open and imaginative. Kids love me and I love kids!
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 candidate. As a graduate teaching assistant at FSU, I'm responsible for teaching the intro course for the incoming freshman theatre majors. I also currently teach musical theatre classes and private voice lessons to both children with special needs and neuronormative kids at Making Light Productions here in Tallahassee.
During undergrad at NYU, I considered myself a student leader. I served as a resident assistant, which means I was in charge of my floor of residents in my dorm. I assisted them when they had problems, questions, concerns, etc. and also helped create a supportive, active, safe, and social hall community.
Aside from my performing arts training, I also have a degree in journalism and am a published writer, which has come in handy when helping students with homework and essays!
I have references both here and in the UK if necessary. If you have any more questions about me or my background, I look forward to hearing from you!
