Phil C.

Chicago, IL

(23)

Bgcheck Background Checked


Through the application of music and acting stage performance techniques, coupled with exercises for vocal pitch and elocution, we'll develop the strength and control of your voice.
I'll include conveyance of meaning, dramatic pause, how and when to use eye contact, and how to truly read an audience. We'll look at using stories to awaken emotion and help people recall real facts you share. Much of what you've heard is wrong or at least misleading. And you certainly don't need to be an extrovert or power pitchman to speak well and get your point across.
From the work that we do, you'll have a solid knowledge of when and how to put to use the power of your voice.

Jillian V.

Bgcheck Background Checked


Ever since I was a child, I absolutely loved to write. During my sessions as creative writing tutor, I hope to foster that same love for writing. My students are challenged to stay true to their own voice while simultaneously considering craft, style, syntax, structure, and the myriad elements of engaging, successful writing. My sessions can be catered to a specific goal (standardized testing), or can be an open-ended experience invaluable to academic success.

Uly's skill and understanding levels are excellent, but her strength of character in perseverance and ingenuity are directed toward securing meaningful success.
