About Josh

VISUAL ART:

Want to improve your art skills, but don't want the hassle of formal classes with some jaded instructor pushing you to copy his/her style?

I have experience teaching all ages (check out some of the student work from my four years as the full-time Art Instructor at Covenant Day High School), and I want to teach you to develop your OWN style -- all in the comfort of your own home.

If it's hand-crafted art you're into, I'll show you how to draw faster, more accurately, and with less stress over your results. Then, if you're still having fun (I think you will be), we'll move on to any of the following mediums: colored pencil, pen & ink, watercolor, pastel, acrylic.

Or, if it's photography you're into, I can teach you the basics of how to use that fancy digital camera you've bought. Let me de-mystify the process of capturing light with machinery, so that you're no longer just pointing the camera, pushing a button, and hoping it turns out all right. And if you've bought photoshop but don't know how to use it, I can help you with that, too. Part of what I did when I was a full-time Art Instructor was to teach a class that focused primarily on photography and photoshop.

I want to help you become the Artist that YOU were meant to be. So drop me a line and let me help you unlock your inner Artist!


ENGLISH:

I am a passionate arranger of words. I write novels, short stories, nonfiction essays, poetry, and screenplays. I am very good at this, and I am also very good at helping you figure out what you can do to improve.

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

Like most people, I always drew -- I just didn't quit in high school, where I found work as an illustrator for a small local paper, and for literacy materials.

In college, I was the illustrator for the school paper, and for a variety of other projects, including album covers, logos, and creating pen-and-ink portraits of famous scientists for an education DVD.

I spent four years as the full-time high school art teacher at a day school in Matthews. During that time, drawing was a foundational aspect of my educations method.

Painting

I've been a painter since I was about twelve years old. I minored in Studio Art in College, and during that time curated a gallery show for a major dance/film/art event.

I spent the years from 2008-2012 as the full-time high school art teacher at Covenant Day School in Matthews. During that time I taught Painting in a variety of mediums. I am proficient at painting, and at helping others to learn to paint.

Photography

Since my first camera in eighth grade, I have always been an enthusiastic photographer, using my eye as a painter to good effect. First with film, and now digital.

I spent four years as the full-time high school art teacher at Covenant Day School in Matthews. During that time I taught Digital Photography and Graphic Design. My primary focus in Graphic Design was Photoshop.

I'm eager to help you explore the creative possibilities of your light-capturing machine.
