I have taught at Youngstown State University as a "limited-service" instructor. The subjects I taught were Advertising Copy writing, desktop publishing, and Graphic Design.

I also supervised the Technical Writing Lab in the English Department. My professional work experience is in graphic design, marketing and public relations, financial planning and investment. I hold two securities licenses -- NASD series 7 and 66 -- and have extensive sales presentation training in the area of financial planning.

I believe I offer a diverse skill set and would appreciate the opportunity to put it to use.

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 hold a BFA in Graphic Design. I have taught in this field at Youngstown State University. I was trained to illustrate layouts and design concepts before using a computer for the final presentation. Therefore it was critical for my degree to take extensive coursework in drawing, painting, and other illustrative methods. I currently maintain a studio in my home and consistently produce artwork for show and sale.

Therefore it was critical for my degree to take extensive coursework in drawing, painting, and other illustrative methods. I currently maintain a studio in my home and consistently produce artwork for show and sale. I paint primarily in watercolors, but prefer to mix this media with pastels, colored pencil, and ink.

Sewing

I used to make all my clothes. I have made velvet jackets, wool coats with fur collars, delicate camisoles, skirts, pants, blouses, purses. Sewing is fun, creative, and easy if you can read a pattern and are patient. Once you become comfortable with reading patterns and fitting, you can then start altering the patterns to your own designs and embellishment.
