SCSU (BS Art Education)
My professional experience in education spans more than twenty years. I have been a teacher, Guidance Counselor and Tutor. My years as a School Counselor provide me with a unique quality in that I understand the student and their struggles with a subject on more than one level. My warm, patient and occasionally light communication style puts any student at ease, thereby facilitating learning as the student feels more comfortable and confident. I have tutored a variety of subjects including Psychology at all levels and subcategories, English elementary through High School, Science particularly Ecology, Anthropology, Sociology, Social Studies all areas, Health sciences, Food Sciences, Art and Art history.

I started weight training 30 years ago and competed in Bodybuilding competitions in the late 1980's. I have read and tried out just about every type of training routine. I have a great deal of knowledge around muscle groups, appropriate training for mass, lean muscle, endurance etc. I have seen the sport go through many phases over the years. I am in the process of getting certified as a personal trainer.
I have an undergraduate degree in Art Education and taught Art for a number of years before becoming a Guidance Counselor. During my years of tutoring students I have had a few whom I tutored in Drawing as well as Painting and sculpture. I understand the concepts figure drawing, types of shading, light and dark, still life drawing and a variety of other techniques.
I have a BS degree in Art Education with a concentration in Graphic Design. Though this was some years ago the fundamental principles still apply and my experience in the subject area is extensive. I am fully capable of working with a variety of Graphic software programs.
