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.
Additional qualifications: two visual arts degrees, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and a Master of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing. Photoshop is something I have always used as a tool for my work.
I have been a practicing artist since 1972, attending and graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pratt Institute. I studied drawing while there and majored in Photography. Years after that I attended graduate school graduating with a Master of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting, from Brooklyn College City University of New York. I have been drawing for 25+ years.
As a teacher and communicator I have always done a lot of writing and reading. In addition to my teaching in the visual arts, I have been substitute teaching in multiple subjects including language arts, and I write a blog and newsletter for my web site. My command of English is comprehensive and thorough, and I can fulfill your needs in English and in Writing.
I am an artist and have been using Macintosh computers since the early 1990's and am very familiar and confident with the platform. I use the computer all the time for my artwork, organizing my work and business, for my web site and maintenance of the web site. I use Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Word and Excel, Adobe Illustrator, and others and do research on the web. Once one understands the platform and the structure of software on it, one can solve most challenges and "learn how to learn" on it.
I have taught drawing, painting, and color & design at esteemed art colleges such as Pratt Institute, Ringling College of Art and Design and at other esteemed colleges such as the College of William & Mary and Bowdoin College. I have also taught studio art, drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, photography and 3-D design to middle and upper school students at Riverdale Country School in Riverdale NY (Bronx). If you need to additional examples of my expertise, I can provide you with transcripts from Pratt Institute (BFA) and Brooklyn College of the City University of NY (MFA).
I am an effective teacher/tutor and have excellent skills analyzing and understanding text, as well as leading students through the process of learning, understanding, and comprehending.
