MichaelI have my bachelor's in acting from New York University. I also studied liberal arts. I have been tutoring since I was in high school and I continued throughout college. Tutoring is a very enriching experience and I love learning along with my students. Often times in high school, kids are uninterested in their coursework. I work hard to keep them interested in the material. Theatre and film are my main passions, however, I really enjoy helping students prepare for the SAT and ACT. I can help with time management skills. I also enjoy tutoring in English, Spanish, and psychology. Psychology has become a big interest to me. As an actor, I have to learn how the character I am playing thinks and acts and apply it to the role. I really enjoy discussing psychology and would be happy to help you study it. I currently act, direct, and write. I have done independent productions and self-produced projects both. Aside from the arts, I also enjoy my restaurant job, running, and playing the piano. I hope to connect with many people and use my skills to help them reach academic success.

BrittanyI earned my undergraduate degree from San Diego State University in youth theatre and my graduate degree from California State University in interdisciplinary studies. I have a very strong background in both communication and the arts and I believe it has given me the foundation necessary to work with students from a unique perspective. I endeavor to make learning engaging and fun and to help each of my students improve their own communication skills so they are better able to pursue their passions in live. My favorite subject to tutor has to be writing. It is a privilege to help each of my students how to authentically and compellingly share their voice with the world. When one embraces the power of writing, it becomes possible to let your personal style shine through when discussing any topic. This propels their academic career forward but it also becomes a meaningful tool for their own self expression. Some of the courses I tutor include reading, writing, essay editing, public speaking, elementary math, algebra, creative writing, pre-algebra, persuasive writing, expository writing, fiction writing, technical writing, theatre, and middle school math. I enjoy working with students of all ability levels in grades K-12. I truly believe that academic achievement is possible for each student, no matter where their starting point lies. Â
