About Dawn

I am a retired art teacher from Ohio. I taught for 17 years and decided to move south to warmer weather. I've taught kindergarten through 12th grade, both in private and public schools. My specialty is art, but I also have my Master's Degree in the Science of Education. I consider myself very capable of teaching any subject with the exception of math, especially "new math".
I believe that everyone is capable of learning, period! It's just that we all have different learning styles and a crowded classroom doesn't allow the teacher much room for addressing every learning style with every lesson taught, it just isn't practical! I love tutoring because the one on one aspect allows me to discover the individuals learning style and then teach them based on the best way that they learn.


I am a voracious reader...I love to read. I also taught my son to read by the time he was 3 years old. I believe that reading is difficult for some because emphasis is not put on the importance of understanding what is read.

My minor for my Bachelor' Degree was Art History which I believe only added to my knowledge of American History.

I have my Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. My Master's Degree included 16 courses of studio ceramics and I taught Art for 17 years. I am also an accomplished artist, excelling in drawing, painting and ceramics.

Learning should be enjoyable! I think that I could help you find a way to learn in a new way...you know how sometimes you just don't quite get it? No matter how you try, that "light bulb" just doesn't turn on for you? The best part of teaching for me is when I help a student reach that "AHA" moment and they get it, they see it!
