I am an experienced instructor at the College/University level with a current AZ Department of Education Substitute Teaching Certification. I have experience with tutoring both k-12 and college-level students and a passion for education and seeing students accomplish all their goals. My education is in Business Management and Fashion Design. I also have coursework in graduate-level statistics, writing and sociology. I have taught illustration (by hand and CAD), Adobe Creative Suite, design and presentation principles, computer graphics, and volunteered teaching in multi-level k-12 classrooms, and as instructional aid for Math and English in classrooms with students having IEPs. Everyone can learn and I believe in implementing strategies that meet the learning styles of each individual. I commend your efforts to improve learning outcomes for your student and look forward to meeting you.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

Among many things, I am an Illustrator and have taught Adobe Photoshop for Illustration. I have posted some of my work on my main page.

Business

I currently hold a BS degree in Business Management. I had an individualized concentration in business management. I obtained a 3.87 cumulative GPA for all my coursework and graduated with High honors. I have also ran my own business (intermittently) for the past 25 years.

Clarinet

I have been playing the clarinet since I was in 2nd grade (over 30 years). I was in honor bands all my years including a clarinet choir in college. I am able to read music and specialize in solo and duets.

Drawing

I have a BS in Fashion Design and 80 graduate credits toward MS degree in Apparel Design & Manufacturing. I have been drawing since I was a child. I have also taught Illustration both by hand and computer-aided in higher education. I have submitted examples of both my hand and digital work for photos on my profile.

Elementary Math

I have a current Arizona Department of Education Substitute Teaching Certificate. I have experience as an instructor in both elementary and higher education including volunteer work as an instructional aid for special education students. I love teaching, especially one-on-one contact with students and seeing them grow and blossom through learning and experience.

General Music

I have been playing the clarinet since I was in 2nd grade (over 30 years). I was in honor bands all my years including a clarinet choir in college. I am able to read music and play some piano. I have also been singing since I was a child. I have college coursework in music.

Graphic Design

I have over 80 hours of post-graduate work at Colorado State University towards an MS degree in Apparel Design & Merchandising. During that time I taught computer-aided design and Adobe Creative Suite courses. I have volunteered for a non-profit religious organization creating newsletters, presentations, and graphic design work for 7 years. I have taught computer-aided illustration and the use of graphic design and web design.
