Romain has already taken 4 lessons with Thomas, and every week he is happy and impatient to start his new lesson.
Thomas is a very inspiring teacher for our son, and the interactions he has with him generates a lot of motivation between lessons.
Last, the technical skills are taught through real and stimulating examples.
My son, age 11, has had 4 art sessions with Tom. From the beginning, Tom has helped N discover and verbalize what subject matter, art techniques, and skills he wants to work on and improve. They work together nicely with Tom giving valuable detailed instruction along the way and teaching N to self-evaluate his own work. In addition, Tom and N work as a team to come up with ideas for pieces to work on for the following lesson. Tom goes above and beyond in motivating N and has made himself available outside of the session to provide feedback. Tom works well with kids, is very knowledgeable, and is a talented teacher.
Phenomenal teacher who inspires and appreciates the student's efforts and work. We recommend him highly, especially to students interested in comic art.
I already feel more at ease with the learning process after working with Thomas. He is laid back but really knows what he is talking about. Looking forward to honing my abilities under his guidance!
When our lesson started we got on subject right away. He is very good at finding where to start and builds the lesson along in manageable steps that flow well. The homework is a natural progression of the lesson and is a great steppingstone to the next lesson. We have fun covering a subject that we both enjoy.
Thomas is tutoring my 14 year old son in art, (drawing), and my son was wildly inspired after his first session with Thomas. He's been drawing immediately after school each day, and excited about the homework that Thomas gave him. I was very impressed with Thomas and how he encouraged and inspired my son and is supporting his strengths while motivating him to stretch beyond his current capabilities. Thank you Thomas.
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 an A. A. S. degree in Visual Communications (Graphic Design) from the Art Institute in Denver Colorado. This degree had a focus in Adobe programs. I have since kept up with Adobe Creative Suite and have the most recent version (with Photoshop) on my Macbook Air. I am constantly using Photoshop as a freelance artist, a photographer and to optimize the resolution of my portfolio pieces.
I have a minor in art history from the University of Northern Colorado. I have vacationed in Italy - Florence, Siena, Venice & Rome and have interacted and studied the masters in person. I have a collection of art history books that numbers above 500 books and have an extensive art history slide collection.
I am a graduate of The Art Institute in Denver, CO and received an A. A. S. degree in visual communications, which is a graphic design related degree. I have designed posters, logos, illustrations and I am fluent in Adobe programs.
