I am a native of Frederick County. I graduated from Linganore High School in 1992 and was active in art and floriculture/horticulture. I studied Fine Arts at Frederick Community College and subsequently Art History and Archaeology at Hood College, with archeological field school completed at Syracuse University. I have an AA degree in Fine Arts from Frederick Community College and a BA degree in Art History from Hood College. I relish learning about artists and all kinds of historical facts, as well as anthropology. I find the dynamics of history fascinating. I worked in the archeological and architectural history field for over 3 years, which included a subcontracted position in the Cultural Resources Department at the MD State Highway Administration, and then I decided to change careers. For the past 4-plus years, I have been employed as a research associate in the pathology research/drug development field and love the challenges of learning scientific concepts.

In 2011, I started a side business with my art and jewelry. On various weekends, I travel to festivals and markets to vend my wares. I love it because it keeps my creative energy flowing and I get to meet new people. I have art and jewelry on consignment at Dubllin Roaster Coffee in Frederick, which has been a good experience. Recently, I joined MainStreetChamber Frederick business networking group. It is nice to interact and meet new small business folks.

In my artwork, I love to create and try new craft forms. I am particularly drawn to bird imagery. My body of work includes a variety of paintings, drawings, hand-pulled prints, photography, mixed media, and wire-wrapped style jewelry. I enjoy trying something new as the muse sways me, thus each piece of artwork and jewelry I create is a one-of-a-kind design. For me, the act of creating art is the same kind of spontaneous fun a child experiences while playing; nothing strict or didactic, but freely flowing imagination.

Thank you,
Stacey

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Anthropology

The study of human beings over time and space in prehistory and history; specifically, on human interaction with one another, culture, religion, environment, diet/subsistance habits, family unit, and mortuary practices.

Anthropologists help inform the history records about past civilizations worldwide as well as inform modern society about the behavior and cultural practices of contemporary ethnic groups, such as tribes in Papau New Guinea and the Masai in Africa.

Related disciplines that rely on anthropological data include archaeologists, paleontologists, forensic scientists(think of Ice Age Man), and historians, to name a few.

I took anthropology in college and did very well in the subject. I loved the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. I studied archaeology as well and worked in the field of archaeology for over 3 years. As an archaeologist, I had to research and understand the culture of the inhabitants of the particular site/project in which I was working.

Phonics

Pronunciation and spelling of words in the English language according to the arrangement of consonants, vowels, and syllables.

Phonics is associated with phonetics, which is the alphabet, letters A-Z, which make up words in the English language. Each letter in the Phonetic alphabet respresents a particular pronunciation. It is the combination of vowels and consonants that constitue a word and these linguistic elements determine the pronunciation of the word.

Vowels (a, e, i, o, u) in the Phonetic alphabet can be 'hard' or 'soft' pronunciaton depending on their position within a word. For example, the vowel "a" in "cat" is considered soft while it is a hard pronunciation in the word "cape". The pronunciation of a vowel in phonics is visualized by the diacritical mark above it: a line above the vowel "a", for instance, signifies it is a 'hard'(i.e., long) pronunciation.

While I did not major in English language or literature in college, I did have to apply the use of phonics in my writing of research papers for art history and anthropology, as well as learn the phonics of both Latin and German languages while in college. In my daily work, I use phonics to communicate verbally and in written form in order to exchange ideas with my co-workers and clients. It is important to understand how to speak clearly and effectively, which is why learning phonics is very important.

Study Skills

Study skills involve proactive planning by the student for a particular subject. For example, study strategies include the use of mnemonic devices, asking relevant questions about the subject matter (e.g., who, what, when, where?), conducting research, reviewing and taking of notes, study groups, visual aides, vocalization, and mock tests.

Practice is the only way to hone one's study skills. Seeking assistance from others--tutors and/or peers--is helpful in the endeavor.

As a former college student and scholar of several subjects, I am very familiar with utilizing study skills in homework and preparation for tests, mid-term, and final exams.
