University of the Pacific (Studio Arts)
As a nationally exhibiting artist, I have a creative mind and experience that I wish to share with all who are interested. I enjoy sharing my appreciation of the arts through teaching art studio lessons. I have traveled around California wine country, eastern Tennessee, and upstate New York teaching and working with local communities. I graduated from the University of the Pacific with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics and Printmaking and a dual major in Visual Studies. I have made presented papers to national conferences, written artists grants, and filmed short stories and documentaries. I believe it's important for everyone to find time in their lives to be creative.
I have experience in ceramics, printmaking, drawing, painting, photography, and film-making. I have worked with adults and children in workshop and classroom environments. I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, film editing software, social media and marketing, and Microsoft Office for resume and artist materials.
I also bring this creative flare to teaching high school and elementary education during private tutoring sessions. I prefer to work one on one with students so that they can have the attention they need and an environment they have the freedom to make mistakes and succeed. I have experience with tutoring grades K-6th with reading and math. Every child learns at their own pace and it is important to me to learn about the student first. Sometimes lessons need to slowed down where as other lessons may need dedicated reviewing time. For example, I helped a 5th grader, who was brilliant at math but struggled in reading, improve her words per minute by 100 words over a three month period. Another example, I helped a 5th grader who was struggling with math fractions understand the homework lesson for the day within two hours of tutoring.
I have experience in preparing high school students for the AP US History exam and AP Studio Art exam. I can prep students for the multiple choice testing methods, writing practice, and portfolio review and assemblage. Most of the time the AP test is difficult because of nervousness, it is my job to help the student gain confidence and tools to help them through the test beyond the necessary information to pass the test.
I have a passion for teaching and hope you the best on you or your child on this journey of learning.

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 have a BFA in Studio Art and a BA in Visual Studies. I graduated magna cum laude and was a principal/dean honor roll student from 2nd grade until the end of college.
I have tutored students from grades K-6th for 5 years and each student improved from their lessons. I have my students stay very focused on the task at hand but I also make sure that they are allowed to learn at their own pace and have fun. I have helped students improve their reading words per minute by 100 words in a three month period. I have also help students learn the math lesson of the day after an hour of instruction. It is a privilege helping children learn.
I have six years of experience with Macintosh products. I have used a Macbook Pro 15 for five years. I use it for documents, photo editing, film editing, and some sound mixing. I know how to work most applications compatible with Macs. I also know how to troubleshoot situations including external hard drives.
I have tutored several students involving general computer skills or transferring from a Windows OS to a Macintosh OS.
I have ten years of experience with painting. I graduated from the University of the Pacific with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art and a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Studies. I have a proficient understanding of the technical and conceptual aspects of painting. I have experience in acrylic and oil painting. I have made my own paintings which include still life, portraiture, and expressionistic small and large scale paintings.
