About Michelle

Being an art teacher means I'm skilled at finding creative solutions. I think of the way we learn as an artistic composition; sometimes different parts and pieces need to come together in different ways before it starts making sense. As your tutor I will work with you to find which learning style suits you. If one method doesn't work, I will develop a new direction for your lessons to go. I am all about student-directed learning and I want to support you in getting where you want to be. I want you to feel challenged but not overwhelmed. I want you to feel like it's okay to ask questions or try things again.

I have experience tutoring from working at the Boys and Girls Club. I worked there for 1 year and assisted students from ages 6-18 with their homework every day after school. In addition, I have my degree in Art Education from the University of Northern Colorado and I am a certified teacher in the state of Colorado.

I am available evenings and weekends. I am willing to travel to you, meet somewhere in between, or online. My rate is $40/hr and I ask that you give me at least 12 hours notice if you need to cancel.

I love helping others, it makes me happy. Tutoring is fun because students can learn without the pressure of being in a classroom. I am a curious person and encourage others to be the same, constantly asking questions and figuring out the WHY behind their answers. As humans we have a natural tendency toward mastering our skills and I find that fascinating. I want to help you master what you want to learn!

While I love art, I excel in reading and writing. I understand the complexities of grammar and vocabulary and edit my friends' papers for fun. I was the one in school who looked forward to writing essays because I knew it was something I would do well at. College greatly improved my reading comprehension and writing skills.

I have been a photographer for 8 years. I started with black and white film in high school and worked with digital cameras in college. I understand composition, lighting, and color. In addition, I am familiar Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras and have worked closely with both.

Please contact me to set up a free consultation or to schedule a lesson! I am here for you.

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.

Art Theory

I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Northern Colorado in art education. I have logged over 300 hours of art teaching time and I am a certified teacher with the state of Colorado.

Photography

I am qualified to teach photography because I have experience working with a variety of cameras and film. I understand how to adjust ISO, white balance, shutter speed, and aperture to make an exceptional exposure. I have taken several photography classes and practice photography as an art form in my free time.
