I have been an active performer in both the operatic and concert repertory. In the past few years, I have been a soloist at Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Theater, in the Toledo Orchestra’s Christmas concert, and at Chicago’s Ravinia Festival. I originated the role of Dari in Lookinglass Theater at Ravinia’s production of SitaRam. Recent opera credits include Dorabella in Così Fan Tutte and Mme Lidoine in Dialogues des Carmélites, as well as Beppe (L'Amico Fritz) in 2005 in Italy. She has also performed scenes from L’Elisir D’Amore (Adina), The Rape of Lucretia (Female Chorus), Der Freischütz (Agathe), Die Fledermaus (Rosalinde), Madama Butterfly (title role), Arabella (title role), Suor Angelica (title role), Don Giovanni (Donna Anna, Donna Elvira), and Medea (Glauce). I received her ...
Very proficient conversationally. Would be most helpful to someone who wants to improve their speaking skills. Learned to speak both in middle and high school and also living in France for a few months a a few years ago. In college I took a year of Russian. Languages come naturally to me and I love them so would really enjoy helping someone improve their oral skills. I would say I am between intermediate and advanced speaking wise but that is not an option.
Have helped students with their college and graduate school applications (creating a powerful narrative, editing personal statements), tutored the SAT and LSAT. Given this experience and my varied educational background, I am confident that I can teach students in a variety of different subjects.
I have taught in a language school in Pittsburgh for several years. I am certified in Arabic, French and BCIT ( Business. Computer and Technology) During the school year I teach those subjects in the Mount Lebanon School District. i have been working in the district since January 2010. I also teach private lessons Arabic and French as well as small groups. I am currently tutoring a 2nd grade French student to keep up with his French and a 6th grade student who lived and studied in France for three years and need to brush up on his French.
I have taught beginning French to college French
I adhere to the John Rassias (Dartmouth College Prof.) motto: Please and instruct… entertain with a purpose. Like Rassias, I believe in the power of Drama, of movement, rapid engagement, rhythm and emotion. I have tried to rid myself of any inhibitions, so the students in turn can do so too… so they can gain confidence and inner pride. Using this artistic expression of empathy, any teacher will become closer in his/her relationship to the students; the students can see, feel and hear just how much the teacher believes in them, believes that anyone can learn a language. I like to offer a full immersion experience, a fast-paced, active class where students find themselves on the edge of their seats excited and ready to participate. Ideally I try to allow little breathing room ...

I studied French and Spanish while in college, and I studied for a semester in Rennes, France. I have good conversational skills as well as great study techniques for anyone frustrated with learning a foreign language.
I'm a recent college grad who just moved back to Pittsburgh. I studied art and foreign languages at Alfred University, and am currently living in Bloomfield working as a waitress and teaching sewing a few hours a week. I eventually hope to work solely as a teacher, I love working with kids. I have experience both in a classroom and a more individual tutoring setting. In my free time I love to knit and sew. I am an artist and I use those processes in my work pretty frequently. I think they're really underrated and valuable skills. Something that I wish more people appreciated. I can literally teach anyone to sew or knit. I do have plenty of welding experience, although mainly with an oxy acetylene torch, if anyone is interested in that.
