Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Painting

I have been painting since I was five years old. Those days, I would imagine objects in the air and draw them there. Throughout my childhood I "damage" a lot of academic notebooks with my paintings, so my parents had to buy me some more.

I have kept painting and drawing. I drew people's faces in pencil for a long time and then I went into colors. My favorite paintings are about nature.

I can use acrylics, oils and watercolors, but since I became very aware of the human impact on the environment, I prefer watercolors.

I also used the computer programs Paint, Illustrator and Photoshop when designing and creating images for a hat company, but I have not worked with these for some time now.

Spanish

A big part of my education took place in the Spanish speaking country of Venezuela. Later, in my early twenties, I came to the U.S. and went to U.C. Berkeley among other schools. I am able to use both languages in academic and every day language.
