The task of working with words can be faced with fear - or excitement. Yes, it is scary to face a writing assignment. However, with a little bit of planning and courage, words can appear. It is difficult when spelling and grammar are a challenge. I can help. My background includes creating poetry in my teens and newspaper articles as an adult. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Pennsylvania, and completed graduate coursework in Communication (Drexel University). I have had some classroom experience as a substitute teacher, and look forward to communicating with you.

Art is a form of communication. Drawing and painting are ways to express your view of the world. I have worked with oils, acrylics, pastels, colored pencil, and watercolor. My art has appeared in several juried shows, has been published in a local directory, and I received a commission to produce illustrations for medical use. Let me help you express your creativity.

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 have enjoyed creating art for many years, and understand that a good drawing is an essential foundation for any painting. There is drama in a good drawing. Some of my drawings have been displayed in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. I have to attribute my love of art to my parents, who were both professional artists.

English

I have experience writing varied genre: school essays, creative writing, critical reviews, letters to the editor, press releases, and descriptive travel content.

Painting

I have created artworks for many years, and have sold various pieces. At one time, I was a member of the Guild of Nature Artists (an affiliate of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History). My work has been accepted and appeared in several local art shows.

Study Skills

Excellent study skills were necessary for my 3.36 GPA from the University of Pennsylvania and a current GPA of 3.75 (Drexel University). I am aware of the discipline and organizational skills necessary to achieve academic success.

Writing

In addition to my bachelor's degree in English and graduate coursework in Communication, I have written for a local newspaper and have published on a travel website.
