I am an experienced art teacher looking for tutoring work. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Western Michigan University and a Masters Degree in Fine Arts at Southern Illinois at Carbondale. I have been teaching in the classroom for over twenty years starting with a graduate assistant-ship. My teaching experience ranges from College level teaching all the way to lower elementary. Currently I teach at a range of subjects at the high school level. Most recently I have taught Drawing and Painting at all levels, Photography, Metal Arts and a basic introduction to the arts. This past school year I re-connected with upper elementary classes teaching teaching two classed a day in our district. I am well versed in Art history including the History of Photography which I taught at the college level. I always have a range of students in my classes and find ways for students at all level to feel successful and proud of their creative accomplishments.

My teaching style is mostly traditional. For example learning the basic principles of art and structuring assignments around those guiding ideas is often my starting point. Because I teach in so many different mediums and levels there are always specifics to each material. Teaching metal arts is much more skill based, teaching photography a little more technical. But I do believe in giving students a firm grounding in basics. As my student mature and gain confidence in their skills I encourage them to be more expressive and assign more theme based or idea generated work.

I always have open expectations and one of the constant joys of teaching is observing how students interpret a theme or an idea that I have presented. In my tutoring work I generally explore classical drawing or painting skills with students and encourage them to also practice on their own time. This practice is often alternated with larger projects that fit the goals of the individual student.
