About Zoya

I am a devoted teacher with over 12 years of classroom instruction and tutoring experience. I Educate, build confidence, and possess keen sensitivity to student learning needs and behavior management, as well as student participation. I always maintains high standards with uncompromising dedication to the fulfillment of quality education.

Now, as an instructor, I try to help the students realize that the world does not stop at their homework assignment. There is a world out there with infinite amount of learning opportunities and they should grab everything they can on the road to self-growth. One of the more important ideas I try to rub on to my students is, “ When you are an educator who loves to learn, and can instill a love of learning upon the student body, your passion for learning excites them to work harder and to love the subject as much as you do.” To add to this quote, it is equally important to both students and the instructor to have the opportunity of learning, studying, and Majoring in the topic that is meaningful and relevant to one/s life and interests. This way the students foster motivation and the passion to learn.

A bit about my history...

I have been trained by professional artist and designer from Europe and have been able to bring all of my knowledge into my classroom. I grew up learning Fine art as well as sewing, illustration, and graphic design. I used to spend many hours drawing with my grandfather in his Gallery since I was 3 years old. My experience and knowledge extends to Drawing, illustration, Design, Graphic Design, 3D Design, Couture techniques, Tailoring, Garment construction and embellishment, Patternmaking, Corsetry, and more…

After working for the Fashion design industry, I have gained great skills with Fashion, Graphic, and Visual design, during which I had a great experience publishing two textbooks in June 2009 and March 2016. I wrote and illustrated both textbook editions using Adobe creative Suite Software.

Currently I am teaching at the Chicago High School for the Arts and for various nonprofit organizations in the suburbs to Children ages 9-13.

I hold a B.F.A in Design from Columbus College of Art and Design in Ohio and have earned my M.B.A from New York Institute of Technology in New York City. I am also certified in various industry used software, including Gerber-Accumark 8.2 computer production systems and Web PDM, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign.

In my classroom and tutoring sessions, I use many methods of learning, because every individual has a unique way of remembering and learning. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in the areas I teach by providing not only lecture and lab time to work, but also many other demos, videos, notes, PowerPoint’s, and more… For students to learn, they need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice their skills. I believe than when a teacher is in front of the classroom, he/she is not there to only teach, he/she is there to also guide the student in the right direction by providing access to the information needed rather than acting as the primary source of information. The students always learn better when they can feel support from the teacher and in some way a bit creative freedom when they can go out into the world and research and browse on their ideas. This way your passion rubbed off on them and they can feel like they have learned the capstones and that they can find answers to their own questions and graduate with confidence.
