Hello, name is Warren and I am excited to meet you!
I specialize in teaching the creative arts (drawing, painting, music, guitar), English (reading, writing, vocabulary) and art history, although I am comfortable teaching any of the liberal arts or sciences. I am experienced in both lesson-based and Montessori styles of teaching and try to integrate both approaches into my tutoring.
I am new to WyzAnt, but my tutoring experiences started in college when I tutored inner city children in drawing and painting. Since then I’ve taught English to elementary students in Taiwan, given guitar lessons at various levels and worked as a writing tutor and a teaching assistant in drawing while in graduate school.
I graduated from Sewanee, the University of the South in 1998 where I studied liberal arts while completing the pre-medical curriculum. The following year I moved to New York and entered Pratt Institute to study painting and art history, earning my Masters Degree in Fine Arts in 2001. Since graduating I have expanded the scope of my studies to include psychology, physics, literature, as well as music theory and composition. I’m currently enrolled in a post-graduate psychoanalytic training program; I’ll be a practicing psychoanalyst in a few years.
I consider myself a Renaissance man in that I have developed a love for learning which has expanded over the years to cover a wide range of subjects. I believe that I’ve discovered the art of learning, and I am enthusiastic about sharing it with my students. In my teaching experience I’ve found that what works best is for the student to learn how to enjoy the process of discovery. When we are curious about our discoveries, learning feels a lot more like fun instead of just work. That said, it is important to have a guide to provide structure and challenge the student through this process. Although my teaching philosophy involves discovering the art of learning, what is most important to me is to help you to achieve your goals as a student both for both the short and long term.
I am interested in the unique personalities and needs of each new student and am dedicated to helping you achieve.
I look forward to hearing from you.
