About Lisa

As a K-10 art teacher of four years at a charter school, I have substituted for academic classes and built a wonderful rapport with hundreds of students. Having tutored design at the college level and English as a Second Language to middle school students, I am aware of what it takes to positively motivate students on a personal level. My expectations for elementary students encourages high achievement in a positive environment. Previously managing tutors at five High Point elementary schools for a Title I tutoring company, I had direct contact with students needs and motivations. My teaching and tutoring background can benefit your child with a focus on achieving academic goals through positive motivation.

I look forward to the opportunity to guide your child academically through accomplishing goals, gaining higher self-esteem and a positive attitude toward school and studying. My art and design background allows me to creatively develop visually motivating tools for learning. I take student achievement very personally and look forward to seeing your child grow academically through positive motivation.

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 a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Industrial Design from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit which requires at least 8 studio classes related to drawing for graduation. I have taught art for 4 years at a K-12 charter school, taught adult charcoal and pencil drawing, and have recently taken an advanced drawing class at UNCG. Earlier in my career I designed cars and managed a design studio in Detroit, MI.

Painting

I have taught elementary and middle school painting for four years; also, high school level for one year. I specialize in teaching color theory and various painting styles/techniques in water based medium. My personal works include oil painting, but I prefer to teach water based medium including: guache, acrylic, and tempera.
