I've worked as a gymnastics instructor for over 7 years with an exceptional track record. I excel at working with young children and have a passion for early childhood development!
I've been an actress for 12 years and counting, and have always felt attracted to the spotlight. My hope is to share that energy with others.

I like to evaluate where a student is, whether that's physical ability, behavior, desire to learn, etc. Everyone starts somewhere different and I think it's important to meet a child where they are, not force them to be somewhere they're not comfortable being.
For adults, I usually find out what their individual goals are and how to work from there.
I'm USA Gymnastics certified in safety, first aid, and other lesson planning and teaching methods, additionally I have 7 years under my belt working at 4 different facilities.
For acting, i obtained my BFA from pace University in Acting for Film, TV, Voice-Overs and Commercials. I've also spent time teaching theater camps, circu camps and improv classes to kids.
I began shortly after I stopped being a gymnast (due to a hectic schedule) - I fell in love with helping kids learn and grow!
Tons! I've worked with children ages 9 months - 16 years old. Additionally, I've worked with children of all ability levels; physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. From ADHD, the autism spectrum, to muscular dystrophy and asthma, I think it's important to make a nurturing and inclusinve environment for all children while pushing them to do their best!
Communication is key. There will always be a teacher more qualified than someone else, but what matters is how you get along. Great learning happens when a bond is formed.
1) What are my goals? What am I hoping to get out of this?
2) How long do I plan on doing this? Finite or ongoing?
3) How often do I wish to take lessons with an instructor as well as practice on my own?
4) What limitations might I have that we need to work with? (Being honest here is important - I grew up with a lung disease that affected my ability to participate sometimes, but by working with coaches, doctors and working hard, I learned to work around obstacles!)
