I have been tutoring/teaching for over 4 years. I am primarily an ESL teacher, but have also tutored beginning level Spanish students. I have a TESL certificate and spent two years teaching English in Spain to middle school and high school students as well as adults. My early teaching experience was with preschoolers and I enjoy working with students of all ages. In order to learn and use a language it is important to have the opportunity to hear and use the language in a safe environment. As a teacher and conversation partner, I plan our meetings around your personal goals and provide many opportunities and resources for learning English. Sessions can be focused on tutoring to enhance in class learning, personalized instruction to improve English for work or daily life, and/or conversation practice with a native speaker. I customize and provide the resources and materials. I have a B.A. in Spanish, with a minor in linguistics and I have also studied German and ASL. As a second language learner I understand the challenges that my students face and look forward to helping meet those challenges.

My second B.A. is in Studio Art. My focus was in printmaking and painting. I have taught face painting classes for experienced and non-experienced artists. Art, like writing is a way to communicate or express our ideas and interests. Art is composed of many elements including technical skill, aesthetics, and the development of ideas/content. I am happy to help with any or all of these areas.

Drawing

I have been drawing for more than twenty years. I have a B.A. in Studio Art from Sonoma State University with an emphasis in printmaking. Drawing is a foundational skill in printmaking and in the course work for the studio program at Sonoma State. From a teaching perspective, drawing can be very therapeutic and useful, not just for future artists, but for a variety of purposes. I enjoy helping anyone explore drawing techniques.

ESL/ESOL

I earned a TESL certificate from Sonoma State University in 2009. I have been teaching ESL for over 2 years. Also, I am a second language learner (Spanish and German).

Painting

I have loved paintings and the idea of painting since as long as I can remember. But I didn’t really learn to love the act of painting until after I took my beginning oil painting class in college. I had an excellent teacher, who gave me the tools I needed to make whatever I set my mind to. Later, I took the opportunity to TA for that same professor to glean all that I could about his teaching methods. I earned my B.A. in Studio art in 2009 with advanced coursework in painting and painting is the primary medium for my current work. I mainly work with oil and acrylic, but have also used watercolor techniques for many of my drawing and print work. Also, I face paint and have taught face painting classes for experienced and non-experienced artists alike.

Danielle is a terrific ESL tutor! — Danielle is a terrific ESL tutor. I came to the Santa Rosa area from Germany to do a six month internship at Agilent Technologies and thought, doing some extra English lessons would not be a bad idea. In fact, it was one of the best things I did during my time in Santa Rosa. Right at my first lesson with Danielle, it felt like having a very good friend helping me to improve my language skills.
