About LIZ

I have tutored young adults and children for years in a variety of topics, but my favorite remains "creative expression - the arts" via an unusual partner - NATURE. I am not a certified art therapist by schooling (I do have a BFA in Fine Arts), however, I find that by allowing the student to become enveloped in expressing themselves via a variety of mediums and via a variety of ways, not only does something magical happen, but growth, healing, acceptance, and self exploration unfolds creating a happier, more well balanced and joyful individual.

Many of my methods; (reading a story and then painting or creating an image from that experience), might not seem traditional, but have been extremely successful with students with special needs for short or long term learning. You need to tell me what you are trying to accomplish, and I can discuss with you ways I think we could go about accomplishing that goal.

I have created a unique and one of a kind "art & nature" course, which I can give in groups or individually, which teaches about our environment and cultural experiences in a subliminal atmosphere while allowing the student to create at the same time. I am also a well respected and requested speaker who does special seminars to a variety of audiences; Master Naturalists, Garden clubs, Wildlife Enthusiasts, Corporate Audiences, State and Local Municipalities, etc. All of my presentations and/or private "experiences" are customized to meet the needs of the client.

On special request, I also have a "reading" dog (Sam-I-Am) which is used in cases with children with fear around learning to read with a love of animals. He's got one more year of work under his belt before he retires, but his presence alone and laid back personality is helpful with children in certain special situations.

I am a not the typical tutor/teacher. An outdoorsy mature woman with a unique way of helping your child or adult come out of their shell through art and nature.

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.

Cooking

As a "jack of all trades" and having a German grandmother that started me cooking as a child, I have managed to create as an adult a talent for the creation of the unique. My focus is on special desserts, which have become so popular that my creations are part of the standard menu for a high traffic local north Georgia "Cafe." Being an artist has helped me create unique, one of a kind "homemade" comfort food. My mantra in the kitchen is fun, frugal and fantastic!

Drawing

I have a BFA in Fine Arts from Edinboro University with a Graphic Arts/Illustration Major and Weaving and Textile Design as minor. I authored/created/offered custom "Art and Nature" programs with children and adults at local wildlife and nature centers in the state of Georgia. My experience offers beginners or experts different ways to approach "drawing" and illustration, with a focus on perspective and use of varied drawing tools.

Marketing

As a 26 year career Senior Marketing Manager and consultant for varied large enterprises, I have managed a variety of business marketing programs, from concept to fruition. My experience includes narketing communications, product development and management, and program and product management, as well as development of marketing programs for both consumers and large global businesses.
