I have been an artist all my life. As a youngster, I took lessons at the Museum of Modern Art as well as the Art Student's League in NYC, where I won a prize. Later, I attended art camp and pre-College at Rhode Island School of Design. I majored in Studio Art at Clark University in conjunction with the Worcester Art Museum, MA. I completed two out of three years of a graduate program in painting at the Maryland Institute, College of Art before taking a leave of absence. I finished my studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, getting a Diploma in Drawing & Painting.
Drawing is my best love. It is the medium I've been concentrating on over the last few years. Whether you need help drawing from observation, or drawing "from within", this is my specialty. I would love the opportunity to assist anyone in the practice of drawing.
Color mixing is another one of my specialties. I look forward to hearing from you.
I passed the CBest test (for substitute teaching in CA) in 2011. It tests reading, writing and math skills. I've already been an after-school French teacher for 5th/6th graders, gave interactive, hands-on museum presentations to elementary school kids on the history of CA Missions. Have been nannying for the past 8 months with kids from 1 1/2-5 years old. I'm currently tutoring a 7-year old boy in handwriting/art. I have a background in mindfulness practices and other strategies that work well.
Hi. I excel in the English language, having scored high on the college prep test (720), and continuing on to the present day, as I was offered an opportunity to write for the local online publication due to commentary I provided over the years. My father was head translator/reviser at the United Nations, and my mother a copy editor in multiple languages, so perhaps it runs in the genes.
In any event, speaking and writing clearly in English is my favorite thing to impart as a tutor. I love exploring ideas, or meeting a student where they are in life to help them be the best they can be and express themselves well.
I did go to a French school as a child, and I believe that learning a second language at a young age increases sensitivity to ideas well-expressed and a love and respect for language in general.
I've also developed a capacity for public speaking—trying my hand at public comment a few times at San Francisco City Hall. It's good to come prepared, and I was complimented the last time I did it, being told by the person about whom I spoke that out of all the comments that were made that day (and there were many), mine was the one she remembered.
I hope I can be of assistance in all matters relating to the English language!
Having had a bilingual education myself (French/English), I feel very qualified to help students who are struggling with a new language. I'm very sensitive to students' needs. I am a visual artist with a liberal arts education so am well-rounded and able to connect with many different kinds of people. Speaking clearly and writing well are my strengths, and I look forward to making our lessons fruitful and enjoyable at the same time.
I have a BA in Studio Art from Clark University in conjunction with the School of the Worcester Art Museum; painting was one of the areas I focused on. I completed two of three years of Graduate study in Painting at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, Baltimore, before taking a leave of absence.
I have a Diploma in Painting from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I excelled in painting even as a child, having won a prize for it at the Arts Student's League of New York, and I also excelled in it as a teenager at a pre-college summer program at Rhode Island School of Design.
