About Taja

I am an all American girl born and raised in the upper Midwest. I graduated college in 2004 and taught Environmental Education at Max McGraw Wildlife Center in Dundee, IL. I'm working on becoming a college professor of Ecology/Natural Resources and Biology. I also practiced yoga for years and wrote an unpublished beginners guide to yoga for an independent studies class.

I'm confident that I can teach your child with a patience and respect that will put them at ease so they can absorb the knowledge that will carry them through the doors of opportunity that open up for them along their path in life.

I have a B.S. In Biology and General Resource Management from UW-SP, one of the top schools for ecology in the nation. I graduated with a GPA of 3.2 and not only double majored but also triple minored in Conservation Biology, Broad Field Natural Science, and Art. I taught kids age k-12, as an intern, Environmental Education at Max McGraw Wildlife Center.

I practiced yoga and took classes for years and I also wrote my own beginners guide to yoga for an independent studies class.

I minored in Art and learned several techniques and exercises that would make anyone a more observant drawer.

I am a fun, caring and trust worthy. Individual with a passion for sharing knowledge and an ethic of environmental stewardship. I want to help educate and mold the minds of the youth for a brighter more friendly future.

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.

Drawing

I minored in art and was taught techniques from very intelligent talented artists who taught me the techniques in how to see the world and interpret it through many different mediums, first and foremost of which is drawing. Drawing is the basis for many if not all art disciplines. Most paintings sculptures and designs start out as a drawing and are further refined from there. I will teach my students to look at the world through the eyes of the artist they are as well as several different techniques such as perspective, shading, dimension, line quality and many more and how and when to apply these techniques. My students will be exposed to a healthy appreciation for drawing whatever their own favorite art medium is.

Yoga

I have taken many yoga classes and practiced it for ten plus years now, as well as wrote my own (unpublished) beginners yoga guide in an independent study. I started out in gymnastics from ages 5-13 and have taken just about every dance class under the sun, as well as karate and judo, which all employ basic yoga techniques in stretching, warm ups, and execution. I have led several yoga classes and taught many people the basic techniques and theory employed by yoga. I know how to safely teach yoga to anyone who wants to incorporate into their lives.
