About NhaThuc

I believe that education is a long-term relationship, and I find myself to be a qualified mediator for such relationships that may be on the rocks. Currently, I am pursuing a Bachelor's in Mathematics, but let that not be a distraction from my abilities to provide assistance and knowledge in the subjects of English and Art.

In my senior year of high school, I earned a 5 and a 4 in the AP English Literature and AP Studio Art exams, respectively. I have also won awards for my artwork, which spans from traditional to digital media. In addition to academic experience, I have been a tutor for over three years in various subjects, with nearly two years of math-exclusive tutoring experience in working with K-12 students. I extend a welcoming hand to anyone of any age that would like my help in the subjects below.

I mainly offer my services in proofreading, writing, drawing, and painting, with a specialization in analyzing literature and portrait/character illustration. My methodology involves a great deal of Socratic questioning with the addition of routine checks for understanding, whether it be in the breakdown of Hemingway's writing structure or the construction of a loved one's face. My personal approach to tutoring starts off with setting up some expectations for me and the student to better understand what the student would like to accomplish. Through this method, we can develop a concrete goal and then work towards success.

For proofreading work, I confirm that the student understands both the changes that we make and the reasoning behind those changes. In writing, I will provide examples, exercises, and reading material to accompany with the student's current material to better assess any weak or strong points to work on. Lessons in drawing and painting will be focused on understanding lighting, proportions, movement, and composition, along with techniques for and implementation of the medium in use.

While my tutoring is more of the supplemental variety, I will assign homework on request based on certain factors: what we have covered that day, what we will cover the next day, and if the student has other homework. Depending on how long we will be working together, I will provide quaint reports of improvements and achievements I've noticed throughout the entire tutoring experience.

I am more available on the weekends. My schedule fluctuates on Fridays, but I can make time to come to students if you let me know a few days in advance. Location-wise, I am willing to travel to you, wherever you may be, as long as the environment is fitting of the lesson I will be providing. I would prefer that students have their own materials for art lessons (I will provide a list of general items), but let me know if you do not have certain supplies.

My standard rate is $30 an hour for single lessons; please take a look at my rates for discounts on multiple students/lessons. Feel free to contact me for further information regarding an initial consultation, cancellation policies, or anything else that you would like to discuss.

I look forward to lending a hand in a grand reconciliation between you and your learning experience.

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

In my junior year of high school, I was a semi-finalist in the 2013 Digital Medial Arts Competition STEM & the Arts Showcase, placing second in the Digital Media Art category. At the end of my senior year, I earned a 4 on the AP Studio Art exam and won a Distinguished Student Recognition award for the Arts, Media, & Entertainment Sector in my district's Coastline Regional Occupational Program. I have experience teaching students the fundamentals of drawing and different techniques for producing certain styles. Please feel free to request any examples of my drawing work.

Painting

I specialize in water-based painting (watercolor, tempera, gouache, acrylic), and I am well versed in portraiture. In addition to traditional media, I own a graphics tablet and work with digital programs (Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai), so I am flexible to whatever medium the student prefers.

My style falls under semi-realism and character-based paintings, but I can provide lessons on watercolor and acrylic painting techniques as well. I encourage students to utilize painting techniques and styles that are most comfortable and work best with their own talents; through mastery of a comforting style, I can then provide guidance on applying that mastery towards new techniques.
