My name is Nicky and I would like to help you achieve some of your life's goals, be that improving your English or enjoying the creation of a new painting.

My background is in French and Art and I have always liked cultures and languages. I speak English and French and am working on my Spanish. I Have a CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) in ESL and have taught classes from Elementary to Advanced. I have many hours of experience in private tutorials and really have enjoyed the people I have met so far on my journey.

I have an Associate's degree in Commercial Art and even though I was a forms designer for 8 years, I have always preferred the fine arts. From 2009 to 2010, I was the student of a professional portrait painter in my community. He taught many things that I would happily pass on to 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.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ESL in Miami for a year and a half. These classes have been comprised of students from all over the world at various levels of ability.

Before that I tutored a young woman from Morocco for 6 months at a very beginner level.

A few years ago, I also taught school children at Sylvan Learning Center in Greensboro, NC, for about a year.

Painting

Painting animals and scenery is one of my passions. I enjoy the sensation of the lack of awareness to the passage of time.

After graduation from the university, I went to the local community college and received an AS in Commercial Art, but my true love was and is fine art.

For a year, I took private lessons with a professional portrait artist and have tried to use all the pointers presented to me.

My focus as of late has been pet portraiture and I am now thinking of venturing into the world of travel painting where I chose a country and paint a series of works from photos of famous and less famous locations in that country.

I have used most mediums, but prefer acrylics and oils. Acrylics have served me well for painting canvases in pet portraiture, rocks and even polymer clay.
