About Flint

I am a Ph.D. Candidate, contemporary art historian, and adjunct professor with a background in both museum education and studio art. I recently submitted my dissertation for review, and will be defending it and completing my Ph.D. degree at the University of Louisville in April 2016. Throughout my doctoral studies, I have acquired five years of teaching experience at a number of institutions, including a state-funded research university, a private liberal arts college, and a community college. I received a Doctoral Dissertation Completion Award In 2016. I have also been awarded consecutive Graduate Teaching Assistant positions in the Art History Department at the University of Louisville since 2010, and have received funding since 2008. Prior to my doctoral studies and art history teaching, I worked for nearly ten years in museum education; first as the Education Programs Assistant & Interim Assistant Director of Education/Adult Programs at the Speed Art Museum (Louisville); next as the Manager of Children’s and Family Programs at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History (Frankfort, KY); and finally as the Education Program Coordinator at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts (Louisville). I have been actively involved in the arts community in Louisville and the surrounding areas through these various capacities since 2001, and have frequently used the educational resources offered by local organizations to provide students with interactive, object-oriented learning opportunities outside the classroom. My professional service includes volunteer work for JCPS with Every 1 Reads, Middle School Connection, and an Elementary School Social Skills Group. I am from Richmond, KY originally, but have lived in Louisville since 2001. I love this city, and plan to remain here close to my family and 1-year-old son. I am currently seeking part-time work in the Louisville area that draws on my broad training, work experience, and specialized skill set, to supplement my academic research, writing, and adjunct teaching.

I am highly qualified to offer private tutoring service for people of all ages in both art history, art theory, drawing, and the basic introductory concepts, processes, and principles integral to art appreciation, interpretation, and studio practice. Through 15 years of higher education, 5 years of teaching experience at the college level, about 10 years in museum education and outreach working with children and families, and undergraduate studio work in drawing and painting, I have become well-versed in teaching people of all ages about art. I love working with children, and I am familiar with the art and humanities core curriculum that has historically been taught in schools in this area, but is often wrongfully neglected these days. I am very familiar with the kind of specific training that is essential for students interested in pursuing higher education and art-related careers. I know from firsthand experience that arts education and creative engagement in meaningful artistic activities are extremely valuable, integral, and fulfilling. I excel at developing lessons and hands-on learning activities centered around specific artworks, concepts, or techniques. Whenever possible, I like to take advantage of the wonderful art museums, galleries, and other educational resources here in Louisville. I love to incorporate special on-site, object-oriented tutoring sessions at places like the Speed Art Museum as part of my teaching.

My philosophical approach to teaching is largely based on values derived from my own liberal arts educational background. This includes my creative drive, passion for learning and meaningful social engagement, and ambition to contribute to society by generating new knowledge. The liberal arts learning environment provided an ideal interdisciplinary foundation for me to develop the critical thinking abilities, confident communication skills, and strong work ethic that have proved absolutely integral to my success in grad school and in the workplace. These are precisely the same attributes that I strive to instill in my students. Furthermore, I always try to project enthusiasm when teaching, so that my disposition to speaks to my genuine love of my profession, and my emblematic zeal can be contagious and inspire students in turn to appreciate the value of art and the rewards of lifelong learning. Based on my course evaluations and conversations with students, I have found that they tend to appreciate the following aspects of my approach to teaching: the clarity and structure of my classes; my cordial demeanor, energetic teaching style, and sense of humor; my ability to make difficult art concepts easier to understand; and my willingness to work with students individually to help them overcome challenges and succeed.

I prefer to meet with parents, guardians, and clients at the outset to discuss how the specific knowledge and skill set I bring to the table can be adapted to best serve their particular educational needs, interests, and goals. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding my tutoring services. I am happy to supply any additional information or references upon request, and I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in person to discuss how I might serve your tutoring needs. I kindly thank you for your consideration.

In-person lessons

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.

Art History

I am a Ph.D. Candidate, contemporary art historian, and adjunct professor, with a background in both museum education and studio art. Through 15 years of higher education, 5 years of teaching experience at the college level, about 10 years in museum education and outreach working with children and families, and undergraduate studio work in drawing and painting, I have become well-versed in teaching people of all ages about art. I excel at developing lessons and hands-on learning activities centered around specific artworks, concepts, techniques. I also love to incorporate special on-site, object-oriented tutoring sessions at places like the Speed Art Museum as part of my teaching. I am highly qualified to offer private tutoring service for people all ages in both art history, art theory, drawing, and the basic introductory concepts, processes, and principles integral to art appreciation, interpretation, and studio practice.

Art Theory

As an art history graduate student, I completed a great deal of coursework dealing with Art Theory. This includes classes such as Approaches to Art History, Early 20th-Century Art Theory, New Media Theory, Critical Social Theory, Art and Politics, Art and Trauma, and Spirituality in 20th-Century Art. My own doctoral research and writing incorporates theories of ecology, site specificity, continental philosophy, and analytical philosophy of environmental ethics. As an art history teacher, my work has entailed conducting in-depth group discussions about these kinds of challenging theoretical concepts, diverse cultural contexts, and complex sociopolitical issues. My students and colleagues alike have commended my ability to clearly explain difficult art theories or philosophical concepts, and make them easier to understand.

Drawing

In addition to being a Ph.D. candidate in contemporary art history, I completed graduate level drawing coursework as part of my MA at the University of Louisville, and I have an undergraduate background in studio art. I majored in studio art at Hanover College, and specialized in charcoal drawing and oil painting, and received the Hanover College Outstanding Studio Artist Award for my work. I have also successfully developed and implemented hands-on educational practicums about drawing and other media, artistic processes, and principles of design while teaching Introduction to Art at the University of Louisville, and while working as museum educator for nearly ten years.
