About Faith

I work part time teaching writing of all types, job-acquisition skills, and numerous art classes for Warren County Community Education. I have worked as a substitute teacher, teacher, small business owner, and graphic artist as well as a painter. I've published a book of poetry and my novella was published by _Bewildering Stories_. My op-ed pieces, articles, and poems have appeared in the _Courier Journal_ and other newspapers, literary journals, and online publications and magazines; and I have regularly read my commentaries on NPR member stations. I've worked as an editor for Berea College and have edited a number of books and other publications.

I have shown my art work at various venues across Kentucky including the Kentucky Horse Park, and I've won a number of prizes for my paintings. I am skilled in both oil and acrylic painting as well as in sketching and drawing. I have taught portrait-, figure-, and landscape-drawing classes, colored-pencil drawing, and oil- and acrylic-painting classes.

As an experienced teacher and working writer, I know how to convey my expertise in all areas of English thoroughly and in detail. I can teach anyone how to write with conciseness, precision, and appropriate tone. As an editor, I am an expert on grammar and style; and I can easily teach a student what does and does not work. I teach business and professional writers and students how to write elegantly, clearly, and effectively.

As a practicing artist, illustrator, painter, and long-time art teacher, I teach both beginning and advanced techniques and help students discover and develop their own unique style.

I also tutor a number of science classes (I double-majored in art and biology), test prep, and social-science classes as well.

I prefer adult or college-age students but will accept gifted and advanced high-school students.

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.

Bible Studies

I have read both the Old and New Testaments several times and all seventeen volumes of William Barclay's commentaries on the New Testament; I have read various commentators such as Matthew Henry and John Wesley. I have also made a study of comparative religion and taken a number of religious classes in college.

Career Development

I have owned and operated several small businesses, and I also have experience in direct sales. I'm a certified life coach with training in career coaching and a certification in business writing. I've run a resume-writing service and have taught job-interviewing skills and resume writing for Warren County Community Education.

IELTS

I am an editor, published writer, certified business writer, professional resume writer, and English teacher. I have edited a number of books and my novella was published in Bewildering Stories. I have also written a book of poetry which was published in 2008, and my poems have appeared in a number of literary journals. My op-ed pieces and articles have appeared in well-known newspapers and on Yahoo News and Yahoo Finance. I have also tutored English and writing for many years. I teach reading, writing, vocabulary, and listening skills. I can easily identify problem areas that may cause difficulty in mastering this test and address them quickly and effectively.

Painting

I have a degree in fine art and studio art; I have taught art classes in public school. I've won numerous awards for my artwork, and my artwork has appeared in publications worldwide (just google my name to see some of it). I teach numerous art classes for Warren County Community Education, including oil and acrylic painting.

Public Speaking

I'm a motivational speaker with experience in TV and on radio. I have won numerous awards for public speaking while in high school and college. I have addressed various civic clubs and other organizations about a number of subjects.

Sociology

I'm qualified to tutor sociology because I took numerous sociology classes in college and received excellent marks in each. I've written many term papers in my classes and participated in gathering research for my teachers and for various sociology classes. I have a long-term interest in social science and have read extensively in the field. I've also tutored statistics, which are vitally important in sociology.

Zoology

I am qualified to tutor zoology because I have a double major in biology in addition to my major in art. I have taken zoology, comparative anatomy, parasitolgy, and biology classes in college among classes in other life sciences. I've dissected cats, fetal pigs, sharks, and other animals in these classes. I home-schooled three children through high school and taught them biology, including one who became a registered nurse who graduated with a BSN and honors. I also successfully tutored zoology in college.
