I have been a substitute teacher at East Windsor Regional School District and Jamesburg School District. I currently am a Kidzart instructor at three schools in East Windsor and Hightstown. Due to my work in the public schools, I have a background check approval letter that I can provide a copy of. I would love the opportunity to tutor students individually.

I have a Fine Art Degree and am in the process of becoming a full time art teacher. I have a Certificate of Eligibility in K-12 Art as a teacher. I can tutor with drawing and painting, and also elementary reading, writing, vocabulary and spelling.

I see creativity having an important role in education because it is always asking us to find a solution. It is a valuable tool for students to utilize in all aspects of their lives. Encouragement, structure, and guidance go a long way in helping students see they have a unique and worthwhile quality they can share with society.

An ideal learning environment is one where students feel their input is valued and are encouraged to grow, learn, and succeed.

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.

Drawing

I received my BFA from the College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ. I have always drawn since childhood, particularly portraits. I have sold portraits and have exhibited my paintings in galleries. I would love the opportunity to tutor students in drawing.

I enjoy painting in oils, watercolor, and acrylics. I also work in pastel, color pencil and pencil. My current paintings are abstract oils. I am also creating small acrylic hand-painted ornaments of animals, that I am selling locally through Perennial Homes. The key to good drawing, is good observation, and the ability to 'see' the shapes that make up an object. Training the eye to 'see' is how we simplify the drawing process. Tutoring in drawing provides me with a wonderful outlet to do two things I truly love, teaching and drawing.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a substitute teacher and currently tutor in reading, writing, and vocabulary for elementary students. I have worked with students in preparing them for NJ Ask through workbooks, testing, and writing assignments.

Painting

I received my BFA from the College of New Jersey in Ewing, NJ. I am primarily a painter. I love using water-soluble oils, watercolor, and for smaller works, acrylics. I also work in pastel, color pencil, and pencil. I have shown my paintings in galleries and have sold three paintings to The College of New Jersey, which are now in their permanent collection. My paintings are also in private collections.
My current paintings are abstract oils. I am also creating small acrylic hand-painted ornaments of animals, that I am selling locally through Perennial Homes, Hightstown, NJ and Jersey-Made, Mt. Holly, NJ.

I also enjoy portrait painting, both people and animals. I enjoy teaching art, and have a lot of enthusiasm and patience. I have taken art classes since I was young, attending The School of Visual Arts in NYC, and later MCCC and TCNJ. The wonderful thing about learning the creative arts, is it also helps students to problem solve by 'thinking outside of the box'.

Reading

I have had the pleasure of tutoring in reading and writing for elementary students. I have also had the opportunity to work with a young adult with writing and art, as she is returning to college.

With my students, I want them to understand the importance of strong reading and writing skills, as it is the fundamental way in which we communicate. Good vocabulary, writing, and speaking enable us to express ourselves and also to appreciate and understand one another. I like to incorporate some of their interests in the assignments, as it makes it relatable for them.

Great Art Teacher that I highly recommend! — My father in law was visiting us for 3 weeks from Europe, and Anna gave a biweekly class to initiate him to oil painting. The result was astonishing paintings in their artistic and technical qualities. Anna is definitely a gifted teacher. She is able to adapt to her student and infuse the right amount of guidance. He really enjoyed these classes, and were the highlight of his visit. Thanks a lot A ...
