About Kelli

I am a full time Translation Coordinator in Durham, and I previously held a position as an internal French Translation Specialist for two years. In fact, I have been using French professionally in every single one of the positions I have held since obtaining my B.A. in French and translation in 2012. During my college studies, I tutored French for three semesters, from the beginner level all the way to Intermediate I.

Listening to music and watching foreign films are wonderful examples of allowing the student to delve into the culture, while also hearing the language spoken natively and naturally. I understand that not all students learn in the same way. Some learn best through visual means, others auditorily or through writing. It is important that one combines all of these methods to ensure an overall understanding of the material.

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 studied art for about ten years, and focused mainly on drawing, primarily with graphite, but also with charcoal and pen and ink. I started my studies at about age eight in a private art learning studio. Surrounded by about ten other students, the instructor taught us in a very personal and attentive manner, making suggestions as we worked. I ended with my studies there at fourteen, but continued with art in high school, taking classes in Basic Art, Pottery and Sculpting, Drawing I, and Advanced Art. I also took Drawing I at Truman State University.

From time to time, I still work on art and sell some of my pieces. Art, drawing in particular, continues to be a passion of mine, especially drawing subject matter reminiscent of Renaissance art. I would say that my style is mainly classical. I enjoy in particular studying and drawing the human face from images or sculptures for practice and observation.

Painting

I have studied art for about ten years, starting with private lessons, to high school classes, to one course in college. For the most part, my experience has been in the drawing field, but I have worked with oil paint and acrylic, mainly oil, and prefer to paint mainly surrealistic scenes. My experience with painting is not quite as extensive as with drawing, but I find that to a point, the two can overlap, minus of course the consistency and application of the media.

I would be capable of teaching the basics in painting composition, as well as paint handling, application, storage and clean up. I would say that I am best at handling oil paint, but have also dabbled in acrylic and watercolor.
