About Shiva

I've been tutoring since I was in medical school, and went on to teach digital arts (Flash, Photoshop, HTML, 3D, Digital Audio) as full time college professor for over ten years. Three years ago I returned to school to work towards my Ph.D. in mythological studies with an emphasis in depth psychology - but going back to school came at a price: I couldn't juggle the demands of graduate school with the needs of my students. Knowing this, I left teaching behind me...but I miss it. I especially miss the the one on one aspects of teaching (the nice thing about teaching at a community college/private college were the small class sizes.)

I believe in the Socratic method, which is to say that learning happens when the student reaches the answer(s) themselves as opposed to blindly memorizing answers. I also believe - yes this sounds crazy - that learning can be fun, as long as the teacher is enjoying the material, and the student is open to learning.

I love language! The way it dances, the way it moves, the way it follows its own internal logic. Having taught technology for eleven years, I'm also hip to using technology to reinforce and foster learning, because we live in a technology driven world. To that end, I'm comfortable using (and teaching) digital arts software, and incorporating items into my lesson plans.

I am happy to travel to tutor, though online tutoring is also an option. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

Having been a full time college professor for eleven years, I'm comfortable speaking in front of groups. Large portions of my doctoral program involved giving presentations, and I have judged collegiate debate and forensic competitions.

In addition, I've been the frontman/vocalist for a band for sixteen years, which also requires the ability to be comfortable communicating with large groups.
