About Geraldine

I believe in the power of education. I was fortunate to attend good institutions, UC Berkeley and Yale, and I spent a year in Germany as a Fulbright Scholar.

I spent two years teaching art as a Peace Corps volunteer in West Africa. I love art - and have a degree in art. I emphasize creativity. I am creative, and I try to bring art into my everyday life. This includes painting, chalkboard art, and shibori. One of my best experiences was introducing the color wheel to my students. We were using oil-based housepaints on a cement floor - and my student looked up at me, after mixing yellow and blue, and said, "Miss, it's magic."

I have a real passion for volleyball - I love to watch volleyball, talk about volleyball, play volleyball and coach. Finally, I have been a volleyball coach for several years in San Francisco high schools. Volleyball is my passion. I have been published in Volleyball magazine. I have been rated AA as a beach volleyball player in California.

I also taught English as a second language in Germany for a year. I love languages, and I've visited over 60 countries. I love to travel - and talking about travel. I also enjoy playing poker.

Reach out - let me know how I can help.

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.

Drawing

I have a BA in the Practice of Art from UC Berkeley. I also taught art as a Peace Corps volunteer for two years. The subjects I taught were Graphic Design, Picture Making, Ceramics and The General Knowledge of Art. I have experience with many different crafts (shibori, knitting, papermaking, bookbinding).

Poker

I'm an avid poker player. I've played for decades. I also deal poker professionally - for party planners.

Volleyball

I have coached volleyball at the high school level for several years. I coached at Mission High School and Washington High School in San Francisco. I have also been published in Volleyball Magazine.

I currently have a California beach volleyball rating, and have been rated AA in the past.
