About Charmaine

Hi there ,
I am a professional reading specialist, artist, and children's book author. I have helped hundreds of students of all ages learn to write clearly and efficiently. My goal is to have students writing and reading at or above grade level with confidence. I want my students to be ready for the ACT and also to understand the power of being able to express themselves well in their writing. Tutoring is such a great way to master these skills and talk about what the student is really concerned about.

If you are more interested in tutoring in the arts,
I have experience in a wide variety of mediums and enjoy teaching all ages how to make art. Often people think they cannot draw, but you have to understand that where you stop doing something that is where you stay until you practice. I have had dozens of adults say they draw like they are a five year old. I always ask if that is when they stopped drawing. The good news is you will quickly get better if you practice. I like teaching all kinds of art and art history so if you have a budding primary school artist, or if you are planning a trip abroad and want to know more in depth about what to go see, please contact me!

I designed an early writer program when I did my Masters degree in 2007. My students quickly outpace the other classes, improving their reading and comprehension as well. I use hands on art activities to help make it fun and memorable. I received the Outstanding Teacher Award 2013 for my ability to combine art with math and the language arts.

I have worked with art students all over the world and enjoy teaching a wide variety of painting, printmaking, drawing, and Photoshop techniques. I have published an early reader series using cartoon illustrations, combining my love of helping people to make art and creative writing. I was nominated for a Caldecotte in 2012. The better we can express ourselves, the happier we are.

If you are looking to improve your reading, writing, and ability to make art, send me an e-mail to see if you would like to work with me. I can explain how testing works, what teachers are asking you to do and why. If you want to become a better artist or turn your ideas into story boards for anime, or more traditional comics or stories, I love reading other people's work and can help you self publish.

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.

Photography

I have a BS in art education and have been an active photographer as a professional artist for over 30 years. I still use my old Yashika FX2 and FX with real film (Echtachrome 64 ASA still my favorite). I enjoy working from my photographs on multimedia projects. I took 18 hours of photoshop and Illustrator to understand how to integrate my photography with digital back in the 90's. I use those skills daily so have kept up and have an I phone 6S, I now take with me on difficult shoots, as no weight or bulk. As an artist, I teach composition as well as practical aspects of digital editing to make a great photograph.
