If you want to advance in the Visual Arts, Art History, or in Drawing and Painting, then I am the Teacher-Tutor you can depend on to assist you in reaching your Educational Goals in this field and in being able to write about these subjects and many others. In summers, I am a Writing Teacher for both Remedial and Creative Writing Skills. I work with children of various grade levels. I have done this for many, many years.
I also know a lot about Architecture and have traveled to numerous famous architectural sites on this continent and others. I am very experienced as both a Classroom and as a Traveling Art Instructor with unique lessons constructed around and infused with Art History, Architecture, Anthropology, and Classical Archaeology, among other disciplines. my interests are wide. I love Science also. In my training, I studied the Montessori methods in Botany and in the presentation of the Fine Arts for children. (Speaking of children, I am a proud parent of a gifted child who is now an adult child. My son is studying in a Graduate Masters Degree Program on Academic Scholarship.)
In my career, I have worked as a NJ Museum Instructor/Presenter of the Arts and Sciences, have exhibited one of my collections at a NC Museum, and had a Graphic Arts small Business in the East Bay, near San Francisco, CAL, for six (6) years. I am well-traveled in Europe and other places besides the West Coast of the USA, where I spend time visiting, photographing, and later painting in retrospect the sites that inspire me. As a practicing NJ Artist, my artworks are exhibited at local places such as Public Libraries and in gift shops. I do sell some of my artworks as gi'clee prints. I also work by commissions. I do have a website for this as do many 21st Century artists.
Also for your information,I am especially intrigued by the Medieval and Renaissance periods of History. But for your projects, we will delve right into whatever historical time and cultural focus you need. You should know too that I have visited many outstanding villages in Italy, Ireland, France, and the UK among others. We have my background here to utilize should it be helpful for comparing and contrasting works of Art from these groups or in composing thoughts and writings about them or about subjects that are somehow related to your project.
In 2002, I earned a second Masters in Art Therapy. My teaching practice and tutoring engagements have been subsequently informed from this knowledge of the healing arts as I can, when appropriate, incorporate a Life Skills-Issues perspective into the warp and weft of your tutoring sessions. We will reach your Art and other Subject goals together and will make a great win-win team to improve your learning and Educational and Artistic Achievements in a style you will be comfortable with and at an appropriate pace.

I am more than willing to assist you as you advance in your journey through the Arts and other Subjects especially in Spelling, Reading and Writing too. Do contact me in the near future! Hi Everyone,

I am currently certified in spelling, having taken the test offered by WyzAnt.
