Hello,

I have several degrees. I earned my associate degree in commercial art before proceeding on to earn my B.F.A. I majored in both Life Drawing and Ceramics. I also included a teaching certificate for K-12. I furthered my degree in ceramics on a masters level, completing half of the requirements. It was then that I started a family.

I home schooled my last child from K - ninth grade, using Susan Bauer's The Well Trained Mind as my guide. My son has successfully integrated to high school, staying on the honor roll. As a home school teacher, the highest priority is excellent study habits. This allows a student to be more confident and more in control of his/her academic outcomes.

No child needs to feel unnecessarily burdened. Tutoring allows the parent, tutor and student to work together as a team, using the student's learning style to achieve success.

My strengths are in ceramics (I own my own business), K-8 English, art, vocabulary, writing, reading, arithmetic, French, Spanish, Italian; and in Grades 9-12, English, art, writing, reading, first year French, Spanish, Italian.

English, Grammar, Literature, Proofreading, Reading, Vocabulary, Writing

Drawing

I majored in Life Drawing. My strength is in soft pastel, oil pastel, and graphite.

Painting

I hold a B.F.A. with a double major. One in ceramics and the other in life drawing/painting.
I have had my work in galleries, before I chose to get married.
I currently have my ceramic work in a small gallery where I live, and I also have a small gallery in my home.

Phonics

I had earned my degree in art along with a teaching certificate. Though this goes back to 1980, I have successfully taught my son at home. He has gone on with confidence to create his own curriculum and succeed in self teaching 9th grade.

Study Skills

I have successfully taught my son at home, relying on Susan Bauer's The Well Trained Mind.
I can say with confidence, that he has developed excellent study habits. His organizational skills are above par.
I teach how to pace organize and prioritize. Good study habits are a result of disciplined attention. I hold a B.F.A. with a double major.
