I am Ms. Andrea. This is my eighth year as a certified educator in K-8 Art, Gifted and Technology. I taught at a private School in Columbia for two years, two years at Columbia Career Center, and seven years substitute teaching in Hallsville. I graduated from the University of Missouri with an Interdisciplinary three component degree in Art/Interior Architecture-Design/Theatrical Design and graduated with a Masters of Education from Columbia College. I am working towards another Masters Degree focusing on Gifted Education and Curriculum Leadership.
Tutoring in the artistic mode is much different than core subjects. I help students by breaking down the drawing/design process into basic shapes. This helps students understand that drawing can be tackled in a step by step manner taking away the anxiety of perfectionism. Art in any form is expressive and not a perfect photograph, that is for the camera. It is exciting to me when a student becomes aware of the artistic design process and has let go of the fear of creating.
Teaching art, architecture, design, and technology is a position of love. I believe that students can learn in many ways, not only by reading, writing or listening. Helping students learn through visual researching and creating, hands on building,field trips to Museums and/or hypothesizing is a much deeper learning experience. My students are very dear to me and I look forward to helping them solve problems through making mistakes, thus creating powerful images and/or objects that expresses life and themselves.
I love to go to Museums of all types, whether it is abstract, realistic, ancient or modern. Every artwork tells a story and I am always curious to find the motive of the painting/sculpture. What is your or your students' passion?

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 am a certified K-12 ART public educator for the state of Missouri under the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education system.
