Hello, dear learner!

My name is Deidre and boy, have YOU come to the right place! I am a fresh graduate of UIC's Classics program (with a minor in Germanics); having graduated with magna cum laude standing. Through my time studying, I have experience which is beneficial to YOU in two ways:

1.I have teaching experience! I had the rare opportunity as an undergrad to assist Nannos Marinatos (the daughter of the illustrious archaeologist, Spyrodon Marinatos) as a teaching assistant in her courses in the Classics dept. for a year and half. This meant grading papers, teaching classes, and assisting students 1 on 1 who needed help.

2. I have studied a variety of subjects. Many may say that being a jack of all trades has its downfall in that it means you are "master of none". However, I believe it has only served to make me more well rounded and a much more critical thinker than others who specialize in only one area.

What I love about tutoring is that it has elements one may not encounter in the classroom as easily. Working closely with a student means that you get to witness how their learning develops. There is nothing like sharing in that "Eureka!" moment that happens as a student begins to grasp a concept.

As an educator, I know that learning does not simply require the recital of information. Rather, it is an effort by both the student and the educator to reach a goal through hard work, mutual understanding, patience, and the thrill and inspiration that discovery can bring.

Drawing

I have been an artist all of my life. I studied under Guy Gilchrist, of Sunday Funny fame (Nancy, The Muppets). My mother is also an artist (Karen Hillard Good), which has been a life long influence, and I have also taken multiple art study courses. Aside from educating myself, I have also had experience with teaching children who love art to draw the things they love. I am open to tutoring children and adults alike.
