I give lessons on public speaking, and general life skills to build confidence. My teaching method is based on the intersection of my theatre, psychology, and survivor advocacy research. I strive to cater my methods to my students, using creative strategies such as drawings and metaphorical analysis.
I am an actor who studied trauma informed theatre at Hamilton College. I have worked as a tutor for public speaking, writing, and volunteered teaching ESOL. I enjoy creating an engaging environment where students can build confidence in their communication skills.
Cancellation policy: Lessons can be cancelled three business days in advance with no charge, if the lesson is cancelled after that limit the fee is the cost of the session.
