My background as a teaching-artist has provided the opportunity to work with numerous arts-education programs as a playwriting instructor and to develop a curriculum that can support various writing objectives. The focus of my online classes will introduce the importance of choosing a clear THEME, supported by a well structured PREMISE. Using skills and techniques borrowed from playwriting concepts, our ongoing classes will explore the importance of developing a clear narrative that communicates well-defined [character] objectives. These basic disciplines can be adapted to serve a range of writing needs: from essays to proposal presentations.

Our son thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and he made a point to ask questions when he wasn't clear on instruction. I could tell this music composition was very complex (for his age) and Doug patiently worked through the questions and made really helpful recommendations.

"Arlys was absolutely wonderful. Not only did she help with with speech delivery, tone, speed, pitch, etc but she took time out to get to know me personally to get an idea of my personal goals as a public speaker.

She took my information and helped me formulate a plan according to my needs. She took my old presentation and helped me to change it to make it far more powerful and compelling. My presentation went from mediocre at best, to a solid well accepted presentation. In fact, when my presentation was done, I had two separate decision makers ask me to present with their companies."

"Ulyana is a very special young woman. In searching for an online teacher for my Daughter,I felt that "Uly" would be the correct choice. My Daughter has different abilities and therefore different needs as well as understanding. Ulyana has stayed dedicated over the months and my Daughter continues to grow. Uly's skill and understanding levels are excellent, but her strength of character in perseverance and ingenuity are directed toward securing meaningful success. Growth continues to be achieved in small steps with every lesson. I am forever grateful to and for Ulyana. My Daughter is a stronger more capable individual because of Ulyana. GRATEFUL,Tom C."

"Janis first tutored our son in math. I was impressed with her admission to me that our son was smart enough to do the math on his own, but needed only motivation. She allowed us to be the ones to decide if we wanted to spend the money on tutoring after having this knowledge. We did continue, and she was really great with him. His grade was raised before we knew it! We then found out she gave guitar lessons and hired her to teach my daughter. She was incredibly patient and made the lessons fun. Both my son and daughter developed a strong relationship with her. I highly recommend her to teach anything!"
