Methodology

I am an outgoing teacher who puts my students first. I like working with students, setting their goals, and ensuring that they reach and achieve them. I'm warm, friendly, and take pride in getting to know my students and knowing exactly what it is they want to accomplish.

Background

I am a theatre teacher with ten years of experience. I primarily teach playwrighting, poetry, and short story writing and have done a number of workshops in Northern NJ and New York City with Playwright's Theatre of New Jersey and Sports and Arts Foundation. In addition to teaching theatrical things, I also teach English and composition. In addition to teaching writing, I also teach acting: both scene work and monologues.
