About Kathleen

Based upon the child's learning style, I'm able to teach a broad spectrum of subjects. Preparation and flow are key to good teaching. Being intuitive to a child's needs is as important as making learning fun. I enjoy working one-on-one and am extremely patient.

I've taught all ages, from 4-65 years of age (from an outreach program teacher group from K-6 to College Professor 18-65 y/0). I'm thrilled to incorporate their learning into practical daily life events and into life experiences.

Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Adobe Illustrator

As a college professor, Illustrator (IL) was one of the four primary Adobe programs taught. It was taught as a stand-alone program as well as a Graphic Design introductory course intertwined with PS and IL. I've taught CS4, CS5 and CS6 at the college level for professionals and adults continuing educational training.

Adobe InDesign

As a college Professor, InDesign (ID) was one of the three primary Adobe programs taught. It was taught as a stand-alone program as well as a Graphic Design introductory course intertwined with PS and IL. I've taught CS4, CS5 and CS6 at the college level for professionals and adults continuing educational training.

Adobe Photoshop

I am a Professor in InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. As a college Professor, InDesign (ID) was one of the three primary Adobe programs taught. It was taught as a stand-alone program as well as a Graphic Design introductory course intertwined with PS and IL. I've taught CS4, CS5 and CS6 at the college level for professionals and adults continuing educational training.

Career Development

There are two strategies used in identifying a career path. If a student already knows their passion and ambition, I work with them to isolate markets, refine resumes and outline strategies to obtaining the best possible employer. Teaching students to qualifying potential employers is also an important tool.

Cooking

Cooking is wonderful... once understood. Starting with terms and ingredients, you can learn to prepare recipes from 'Gourmet Magazine' and others within hours. From timing and budgeting to garnishing and herbs—you'll learn to be at ease in the kitchen!

Drawing

I have sold numerous photographs, sculptures, drawings and commercial art projects.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a dedicated teacher, I’ve worked (10 years) with students from elementary to college level in reading, vocabulary, math and study skills by applying real life, practical experiences in their problem solving solutions.

When teaching reading for instance, I have teach using phonics, blending and other methods with great results. Children master a variety of vocabulary, spelling, grammar, reading tasks and study skills. When teaching math, I use ‘Investigations’ and/or 'Everyday Math’.

I encourage children by setting obtainable goals together (getting them to be okay with stretching their own comfort zones) and by celebrating their achievements with them!

I have an innate talent for understanding the child’s thought process to guide them smoothly toward their comprehension and appreciation for the topic at hand. I am a passionate professional teacher who’s learned to turn the child's frustration into joy! We turn a have-to into a want-to! They work hard; yet, they have a true sense of accomplishment, pride and confidence. Students, who were once overwhelmed, become empowered with a fresh outlook toward their next chapter in a given subject.

General Computer

I teach navigation, storage, keyboard shortcuts, peripherals and work flow. Understanding ones foundation first. Then building from this. I teach both Mac and PC. I've taught Mac (college level) for over ten years!

Graphic Design

I've taught Graphic Design and Adobe software for over six years at two colleges in Maryland. Students were given five projects per semester. Projects were a form of introduction to shape, form and space. Students learned to concept development and the importance of hierarchy and aesthetics in communicating their concept. Group and individual critiques impelled their growth.

Macintosh

As a college professor, I've taught Adobe products on the Mac products for over eight years. I've been using a Mac since 1997. I also offer Ipad integration. Version 10.7.5 at present. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Marketing

As a college professor, I've taught Intro to Graphic Design and am presently an applicant to the Savannah College of Art + Design, Design Management (SCAD), MFA online program.
Design without marketing doesn't exist. I've successfully completed projects for organizations such as Smithsonian, Arthritis Foundation, Pepco and other national and international organizations.
Please tell me what results you're seeking.
Thank you for your time.

Painting

I have sold numerous photographs, sculptures, drawings and commercial art projects. I've taught art to children (from age 4 to 12 art and arts & crafts lessons through Corcoran Outreach program as well as private tutoring) and adults (from 16-65 y/o drawing and/or graphic design through Corcoran Outreach program, Montgomery College and Frederick Community College).

Public Speaking

I was an Adjunct Professor for over five years. I've presented art concepts and designs to clients for over 15 years. When teaching public speaking, there are checklists and assignments given to students to eliminate fears. We also, briefly, discuss their previous experiences; then we focus on what we're going to do moving forward.

Reading

Working with “Phonics”, being an exceptional example, use visual aids and common items, asking them to participate with writing and reading aloud. These with the addition of vocabulary building tasks work well.

I've taught English as a first and second language.

Study Skills

Three primary skills are taught to increase the students focus, comprehension and management.
I teach students structure through reading and note taking as well as scheduling their time and responsibilities.

Vocabulary

Using grade/age appropriate lists, I work closely with each student to understand Latin roots and word building tools. With new words, I introduce skill building techniques in conjunction with repetition for success. Stretching and reaching made fun!
