About Theresa

I am a former high school teacher. I taught Advanced Placement History of Art, Advanced Placement Studio Art, and Studio Art classes (Levels 1-4). Don't judge me stereotypically as a "cooky" art teacher. I highly value the importance of academics and excellent grades. I have two sons who can attest to that. I taught at a Liberal Arts Magnet school, served as a Department Head, later became a Preschool Director, and have also taught after-school art. Because I am a parent, I would rather tutor than work full time. Of course, art is not my only subject.

In college, I always made A's in math classes. However, I am somewhat intimidated by math because I feel that my learning style is different from most standardized teaching. But it is because of this that I feel that I can help other students struggling in math. Sometimes it takes a different way of seeing things to understand a concept. I believe that I can help a student in tutoring possibly by approaching algebra in ways that differ from instruction in an ordinary classroom.

We learn so much about grammar and vocabulary just by reading. I have read to my own children since they were born. I've often been a classroom reader, hoping to instill a love of reading in children who may never have visited a library. I also believe that writing helps you understand your subject more than you originally thought. I'm not a huge fan of abbreviations in texting and other colloquial media, therefore I feel that it's important to learn the rules of language.

Because of my background in art, I have always had to have fine motor coordination. I have taught simple lessons focusing on being ambidextrous. Handwriting can be approached in some ways like art. Therefore, I believe I have the qualifications to assist students struggling in this area. Also, I am able to write in calligraphy.

If you would like to know more about my qualifications, please contact me. I have a BFA in Photographic Design, thereby able to teach basic photography skills in addition to tutoring.

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.

Common Core

As a public school teacher, I am very familiar with Common Core standards of teaching. I have served on the State Superintendent's Parent Advisory Committee in Georgia. I attempt to keep up with updates to our state curriculum while realizing that it is always evolving to best serve educational needs.

Drawing

Besides having a Bachelor of Fine Arts, I have been drawing realistically since before kindergarten age. I continue to draw in various types of media.

Photography

My BFA specialty is Photographic Design. While photography has changed over the years from film to digital, I have updated my skills along the way. While the technology is different, artistic composing and basic knowledge of camera use has remained constant.
