The way we speak is defiantly personal. To alter it, whether for a character on a stage or daily Zoom calls, is an emotionally embodied process requiring technical skills and intentionality.

Communicating in online meetings and conferences all day increases vocal fatigue more than in-person conversation. The stress of interpreting body signals over the internet increases our tension. The way we change our voice to be heard clearly over a microphone to others' headphones typically feels unnatural. It's my job to help you relax your vocal mechanism, develop resilience, and adapt your voice to a clear, articulate, resonant sound easily deciphered by listeners anywhere.

Your voice is one of the most compelling parts of your humanity, the filter others hear you through. I’ll teach you to change that filter however you want, whenever you need. Together we’ll figure out what makes your voice uniquely yours. We’ll expand your range of expression and tone, and your situational control. I ...

Isaac helped to distinguish the difference between creating art and copying which tapped a different side of drawing for me. Had a good session on training on seeing the tones of shades.

15+ years' experience -- math and science specialist!

If you've been muddling along with algebra or chemistry has you hitting your head against the wall, I've got your back! Focused but encouraging, enthusiastic but personable, I've patiently helped my students reach that "light-bulb moment" countless times.

Guiding someone to understanding a concept they struggle with is of course a major part of tutoring, but I'm also really big on coaching students to be methodical and have a system. Content knowledge is only part of the puzzle; problem-solving skills are crucial. Check out my testimonials to hear from my students themselves on that!

About Stephanie

NOTE: I recommend 90 minutes for a first session -- in my experience, 60 minutes tends not to be enough to both get the lay of the land and deliver a reassuring and substantive amount of support. I look forward to working with you! I went to Princeton University and studied molecular biology. I w

"I've been rapping for 15yrs...and when I met Prophet, God took my game to a whole new level., When it comes to stage performance, there is so much more to think about than just what am I going to where, and what songs will I peform. Prophet has helped me track my breathing and make sure I'm not too winded off stage when I'm finished with my set, he's helped me understand how to hold a microphone properly and consider how something sounds to the audience not just to me. He's also taught me about utilizing the monitors and speakers the house provides to my benefit and paying attention to the sound the stage gives off. These things, are rarely considered by performers and rappers, but have proven vital to how I perform onstage. Thus giving me the ability to minister properly off stage as well."
