Jenise Williams

Instructor

Jenise was born in San Mateo and raised in Foster City in a corner home right next to Bowditch, where she attended middle school. It wasn’t until she reached high school that she tried out for AIT, otherwise known as The Aragon Improv Team and joined the team her freshman year. She was coached by professional improvisers, Lisa Rowland from BATS and Andy Sarouhan from Unscripted Theatre. AIT would meet for club and teamwork 3 times a week to prepare for big shows like Improv Olympics- a theatresports style of improv, discuss upcoming lunch shows, practice their teaching skills with club members, and improvise! Jenise loved working her short-form improv skills to produce long-form shows like Improv Actually, Murder Mystery, and The Sound of Improv (an improvised musical), all shows produced by the Aragon Improv Team. She and her team loved improvising musicals so much that her senior year, she and her team convinced the coaches to allow them produce yet another spontaneous musical. After graduating from the team, Jenise was seen in Improvapalooza, a free-form show ending Harold style, with professional improvisers produced to help raise funds for San Mateo high school improv teams. Now, Jenise gets together once a week with Trash Monsters, her very casual group of friends who like to improvise together and hope to make it big in the improv world one day.

What people say about us

Both my daughter and I had an extremely positive experience working with Share Path. They did an amazing job of assessing Paige’s skill level, prepping her for the test format, reinforcing necessary skills, and pacing the work that needed to be accomplished. Her tutor also intuitively knew when to challenge my daughter and when to simply encourage her without any pressure or stress. My daughter received a perfect AP score on the Spanish exam thanks to Share Path’s fantastic work!

Share Path has tailored a curriculum based on my son’s individual needs and he looks forward to meeting his mentor every week. Share Path creates a fun and interactive learning environment that gives my child the tools to cultivate the confidence he needs in the classroom. I love the convenience of the mentor coming to our home so that it keeps my son in the routine of homework after school or in summer camp.
