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.
I have received my BFA from Albion College and an MA in fine art from Eastern Michigan University. I have received much formal training in the formal aspects of drawing objects, figures, portraits, landscapes, etc. I am also well-versed in a more creative or abstract approach and would encourage a student interested in art to explore both of these avenues.
I have also taught community classes in art from ages pre-school to adult in subjects such as Drawing, Painting, and Ceramics. I really enjoy helping students to achieve the skills and building blocks that they need for a more complete expression of their creative vision.
I am currently in a graduate program at the University of Michigan for elementary certification along with a Master's degree in education. Although literacy, reading and writing are my specialties, I also have a strong background in other subjects such as science and social studies, and have specific training in remediation in math grades K-6.
I have worked at a fourth-grade teaching internship in Plymouth-Canton schools for almost a full school year, and have had experience with special ed, ESL students, and students below grade level in language arts and math. I also have a very gentle manner and children like and trust me! I have many skills in gauging and using helpful strategies to move children forward in learning and in making them feel good about learning and themselves.
I received my undergraduate degree from Albion College, which is a private liberal arts institution, with a double major in English and Visual Arts. As someone who has always loved to read, grammar, spelling and vocabulary have always been stong areas for me and I love to help students with these areas and with their reading and writing.
I have also been working as a substitute teacher and am working towards my certification, so I am familiar with working with students of many different age levels and abilities and realy enjoy working with children.
I am also very patient, soft-spoken and nurturing and am a mother of two. I hope that you find me easy to work with and a tutor dedicated to my subject and to improving whatever skills you need to work on!
