About Stephanie

Hello, my name is Stephanie. I can help you with writing (technical or creative), reading, proofreading, art, or art history, etc. If you are a visual learner or would like to learn some new study techniques, I may be your perfect tutor.

I am a professional Artist with 20 years experience in the field. I have a BFA in Fine Arts, and graduated in 2001 from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. I have professional experience within the artistic realms of painting (both oil and acrylic), drawing, sculpting (various mediums), large-scale prop creation, museum exhibit creation, Photoshop, etc. I have taught various art classes over time to both children and adults.

I am also the previous owner of a local publishing company, and therefore have professional experience editing, writing, and proofreading documents such as resumes, press releases, biographies, graduate school thesis papers, stories, books, etc.

I have been academically trained to write Art Theory and Art History papers, as well as Scientific Lab Reports in the fields of both Chemistry (Organic and General), as well as Art Conservation.

I would love to hear from you. How can I help you? Whether you are a student, adult, or parent who needs some extra tutoring for your kiddos... I am very passionate about these subjects and I would truly love to share my knowledge with you.

Just let me know what you are working on, or what new skill you would like to develop. I am extremely easy going and love to smile. I am gentle-natured and patient.

Feel free to contact me and ask any questions that you might have. I would love to connect.

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 BFA in Fine Arts from the College for Creative Studies - School of Art and Design (CCS-CAD) in Detroit, MI. I graduated in 2001. I have been academically trained in basic drawing techniques as well as figure drawing.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience tutoring elementary students in English Language Arts. I am currently tutoring a nine year old, homeschool student via Skype. I am his sole Language Arts Tutor. I create all his curriculum, in relation to the Common Core Standards for his state. His reading and writing skills have improved drastically since we began working together. I enjoy creating creative, fun assignments for him, based on his personality and needs.

I am also currently tutoring 5-12 year old Chinese students in English. I am teaching them English, using basic ESL techniques. I am teaching them how to speak, read, and write in English. Some of them have prior experience, and some none at all.

In the past I have taught many art classes to Elementary School children, as well as Japanese language and culture classes. I also have experience working with children, as a mother to a young son.

Painting

During College I studied landscape, still life, figure painting, and abstract painting. I also took several basic color theory design courses. I have professional painting experience as well, as a Finisher/Sculptor of large-scale props and museum exhibit displays.

Reading

I have much experience writing academic research papers, which means there is a lot of reading and comprehension involved. By way of my own experience, reading on various topics during my University studies such as Art, Art History, Chemistry (Organic & General), Philosophy, Materials Science, etc. I have learned how to not only comprehend what I have read, but how to remember the key points. I can teach you my personal techniques which involve a little writing, visuals, and mnemonic devices that will aid your memory.
