My Voice Experience
I can focus on common problems in writing such as audience, voice, genre and different setting ; write imaginative, interesting and thoughtful texts, paragraphing, or any other asignments, including presentations and literary criticism ; rub words and ideas together in a logical orderly fashion.
I have recorded lessons,interacted with students over the Internet , recorded and read over passages, excerpts or other projects for helping students achieve the expectations raised to them ;expanded on the audience, rhetorical devices, voice, genre, and different settings and explained how the story, or play got started; analyzed and dealt with all particular instances in the light of the overall literary structure that fostered thinking skills .
PS. I shall be sending you my CV by e-mail ,soon; I sort of delaying it because I had to buy a new computer and get used with its components and programs. So it had taken me longer than expected or wished, however, by e-mailing it soon, it will complete better the notes about me and about my expertise held in the respective field and about company names, locations and dates.
I held a master degree with specialization in English
Linguistics / ESL / German Language & Literatures - Writing . I am an academic researcher, literary critic, and teacher.
Some ways in which I had learned in the course of the university studies had been through various projects being suggested and guided by the University professors; one in particular I remembered well it was about media maker, talk show where I worked in small groups to plan, organize, and role-play a phone-in TV or radio talk show on the topic of censoring literature. I and my colleagues decided on who would be the moderator / announcer, the phone-in callers and what they might say, and the guest speaker who was to represent various roles and viewpoints. Then, I and my colleagues planned any breaks and commercials, and decided on a name for the show. Finally, I presented our talk show to the University's professor and to the class.
I thought, planned and monitored everything to make sure everything was done and accomplished accordings expectations being communicated to me and to my colleagues by our Proff.
Being enthusiastic, creative, and knowledgeable I have been teaching and integrating most of my previous work done in the University studies and continuosly updated through researches done on various Websites, thus bringing to my teaching and to classes I have taught a multitude of interesting and exciting projects .
For example, most of the High Schools have been fully equipped with tools and computer Lab(s) of high quality . So whenever I took students to computer lab I taught them how to use the Power Point for different presentations; I also taught them how to use voice(s), and music to integrate within their projects and presentations . For example, at the time I taught Julius Caesar by Shakespeare, I divided students in small groups; each group was to create a brief power point presentation on Julius Caesar scenes, for the class to view and build interest and excitment. Each student was assigned a role in the group. One student was the typist, the student who inputs the info to the Power Point. Other students were doing the voice over using accents and dialects as in Shakespeare's drama ; finally others chose the appropriate music and clip art. So they could get an understanding of accents and dialects, and how and why writers (particularly, but not exclusively, poets) manipulate sound in order to create certain effects . i and students play characters'roles
and dramatize incidents or illustrate issues from the selection .
Created script based on events taken from selection. Transform the characters into 'stick figures' and describe the use of camera shots, angles, special effects, and dialogue.
Reader's Workshop - respond to the literature in terms of what students think or how they feel about what they were reading showing awareness of mood and atmosphere; empathising with characters; discussing themes and evaluating characters and relationships; role playing
My Studio Equipment
I do have my home small studio quite well equipped with a new computer Window / Vista and good microphones, and other updated programs
- audio programs
- sound speech recognition options
- set up microphone
- dictation accuracy - speech reference
- text to speech, control voice properties, speed and so on.
I am quite knowledgeable about audio engineering and
hence I have written many projects I have voiced them this type of experience may be of a good help to me .
I also, enjoy film, art and sport which has been a tremendous inspiration when creating character and diverse voices.
During the University studies, I had been a tour guide, and an international special events Consultant for organizing special events like congresses, fair, exhibitions, and other international gatherings to which I also made presentations on relevant subject matters pertaining each event.
