Tanya Anticevic is a certified teacher and holds a permanent teaching license from New York State. She also passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST).
Tanya began her teaching career in New York City in the early 1990’s, after completing the rigorous training program in Education, with a minor in English Language Arts, at Hunter College. Her student teaching experiences in both public schools in Harlem and the prestigious Hunter College Campus School For The Gifted (a coeducational laboratory school for students who exhibit superior cognitive ability) prepared her for broad spectrum of teaching possibilities.
During the 1990’s, Tanya was employed as a studio teacher with On Location Education for a number of years, working as a private tutor to children actively employed in film, television and theater.
After working as a substitute teacher in various NYC public schools, Tanya was hired by the Blessed Sacrament school to create and implement a curriculum for their new pre-K/K combined class. After teaching there for a year, the principal at Blessed Sacrament thought Tanya’s potential would be more suitable for a private school setting and submitted her resume to the world renowned Lycee Fraincais de New York. Having studied French since Kindergarten, at The United Nations International School, Tanya was immediately hired and taught at the Lycee for the next five years. She was approached by the head of the school to create and facilitate an after-school enrichment class in ‘Theater Games’, nurturing creativity and self-confidence, especially for ESL students.
Having had years of acting training (at HB Studios, The HS for the Performing Arts, and S.U.N.Y Purchase) and experience in off-off Broadway productions, student films & extra work prior to becoming an educator, Tanya thought it important to continue to polish her craft & learn new techniques by studying with John Strasberg (son of Lee Strasberg). At his suggestion, she decided to apply for a Masters Degree granting Acting program, which would enable her to obtain a permanent teaching license in a subject she felt passionate about! She was accepted to the Actors Studio Drama School, at The New School University.
Tanya continued to pursue a career in acting and voice-overs after receiving her MFA. Fulfilling her promise to the Board of Education, she created a series of workshops aimed to enrich and expand current programming in Arts Education. While living in The Hamptons, from 2005-2010,Tanya worked as a visiting artist, acting coach and workshop leader for:
