ADD/ADHD

I have extensive experience teaching all kinds of Students; some are easier and some are more challenging. Each calls for different methods and strategies. But as each individual is unique, I first spend time with the students to evaluate and assess their strengths and where they might need more creative solutions.

Drawing

I am an artist and teach drawing and painting as well as art therapy. I have taught all ages including young children, middle schoolers creating a portfolio to audition for Savannah Arts, scad students, and nursing home and assisted living residents. I'm good with people and make sure they enjoy and develop confidence in their art.

Elementary (K-6th)

I teach k-6th grade with a specialty in reading and overcoming difficulties there. I have taught many children not only the skills necessary to decode but instilling the confidence and enjoyment of reading and comprehending and the new worlds it opens up. My degrees bachelor's and master's are in English and education. Also I am a mother and have an excellent method of communicating my care and concern for children without letting them give up or make excuses. They will love the subject they are learning from me.

Painting

I've been a portrait painter and instructor of painting for many years. I have taught all ages, from young children all the way to seniors, high school, middle school and college and even nursing homes and assisted living clients. I can teach one on one, weekend workshops and large open studios. I have been trained in Italy and France as well as taking many courses in the US. Drawing pastels and the whole span of art including photography are areas of expertise and my method is to make lessons fun and interesting and to instill confidence and enthusiasm.
