With a background in the arts and sciences. I am certified in K-5, K-12 in art, and K-8 in science. I am an excellent choice for primary grade students and those students seeking assistance in the sciences or arts at any level.

With a background in Art Therapy I understand the developmental process and how it can help or hinder the educational process. Students often benefit from specially designed coursework which utilizes the student's strengths.

Approved subjects

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.

Art History

I have a bachelor's degree in fine art with the necessary art history course work for this degree. Additionally, I have taken and passed the art content knowledge Praxis exam with a score of 175, a grade well above average.

Drawing

I have a B.A. in fine art and have taught drawing to adults for over 20 years in long term health care settings. Additionally, I have a masters degree in Art Therapy and have used the instruction of drawing in both educational and therapeutic settings. I am comfortable working with charcoal, ink, colored pencils, and a variety of other drawing materials. I can produce both realistic images and abstractions.

Dyslexia

I have B.A., an M.A. and am currently completing my M.A.T. in Education. As a Dyslexic I know all too well how frustrating school can be. I have, however, learned and mastered a variety of techniques which have allowed me to manage my Dyslexia throughout my education. Because I have first hand knowledge of the issues with Dyslexia, I am uniquely qualified to offer assistance to this population.

Painting

I have a B.A. in fine art and a masters degree in art therapy. I paint proficiently in oils and acrylics. I prefer figurative images with realistic weight and shadows and some content distortions.

Phonics

I have completed 33 hours of my 36 hours master's of elementary education. Additionally, I am certified by NJ in K-5. I have also completed all the necessary literacy course work for my master's program.
