I enjoy helping everyone, whether they be student or someone who needs to overcome a specific problem in a subject I am familar with. We all strive to help each other. Currently I am tutoring volunteers with repairing computers and installing software. From operating systems to applications, each has it's many variations and the casual user can not keep up with everything. When you get stuck I can help.
Not everyone is a computer nerd, and some of us like to use the right side of our brain and our imagination. If you doodle a lot and have an interest in drawing I can help you overcome one of the biggest hurdles in learning to render three dimensional objects on a two dimensional plane. Wow, that was a mouth-full. Basically, one of the biggest problems in drawing what you see is creating the illusion of the object on a flat surface, such as a sheet of paper. You won't find the answer at most art classes. Let me unleash your inner artist.

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.
I worked as an illustrator while living in Southern California. I taught a short course in drawing Perspective to a 4-6th grade. I approach drawing by focusing on translating three dimensional space onto a two dimensional surface (paper, canvas, etc.). I also believe that drawing is 80% of what you know and 20% of what you see. In other words to accurately render a subject you should study the subject. While the dawing is the most important aspect of the art, composition, lighting and use of media is also needed to form a complete picture. If you need to see a sample of my work send me an email.
