About Kiarra

I have worked with people of various ages with both visual art and writing for 10 years. My ambition is to draw out the genius in every student in order for them to become enriched by the subject. My teaching style complements the learning pace of each student, whether it be accelerated or gradual.

VISUAL ART

I have been creating art for many years and have experimented with different media and techniques. I was trained at an art school in Cleveland for one year before graduating with a bachelor's in English and art from another institution. I have illustrated children's books and exhibited other art work as well. I assist the student in becoming comfortable with their internal creativity and artistic style. Much of the focus is on the creation of pieces by the student, but can be redirected toward art history and other art related subjects if requested.

LITERARY ART

As a teenager, I began writing poetry and since then my skills have expanded. My work has been published in a few literary magazines, and in the past I tutored children in creative writing. My goal is to make the world of words an invigorating experience for students. Assignments range on a student by student basis. We will explore journaling, vocabulary building, literary techniques, poetry forms and much more until the student has a concise introduction to literary art.


The art of learning is a beautiful experience and my wish is to share this experience with my students.

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 have institutional training in drawing and have studied drawing using different media. I am familiar with colored pencil, graphite, conte, pastel, and a vast array of tools used for drawing. I have also illustrated books numerous times therefore I consider myself adept in drawing.
