About Joanne

I have been an Arts & Crafts Director at Summer Camps in New England, and have been a private tutor of drawing and painting for students ranging in age from seven to nineteen.

I have graduate coursework in Elementary Education , with a concentration in Reading. I have tutored ESL students in English, and have worked with students to develop confidence in speaking in front of their class, on various subjects.

I have been the only tutor employed by the Cornwall Central School District, to successfully work in a student's home, enabling the student to complete a high school studio art requirement and an art history segment for graduation.

I have helped with many school projects, when a student needs additional help and motivation.

There is a local synagogue, which has its bar and bar mitzvah students complete a " Wimpel", which tells a personal story through pictures and Hebrew words, painted on a long piece of muslin. It can be time consuming therefore difficult for a parent and child to find time to do together . I have been hired to do this with the child, and have made it an enjoyable experience.

There is a 24 hour cancellation policy in effect. Please give more than 24 hour notice, to avoid paying for the lesson if you need to cancel.

* All art supplies, materials are additional, and will be purchased by the student.

Please contact me for further details. I will tutor in Cornwall, New Windsor, Highland Mills, Central Valley, Harriman, and Salisbury Mills.

I excelled at public speaking in college. Upon graduation, I then trained real estate sales professionals. Part of their training included giving sales/ listing presentations.

My undergraduate work, was at the Univerdity of Miami and at the College of Mt. St. Vincent. I was a fine art major at both schools (B.A. was in fine art, with a minor in psychology). I was a student at the Arts Students League in NYC.

I look forward to helping students of all ages, to develop creativity and self-confidence.

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 was a Dean's List fine art student and earned a B.A. Degree In fine art from the College of Mt. St. Vincent.

I was the Arts & Crafts Director for two years at Camp Leonard Leonore in Massachusetts.

I was the home tutor in studio art and art history, working with s high school student with Asperger's, for the Cornwall Central School District in Cornwall, New York.

I graduated with a B.A. In fine art from the College of Mt. St. Vincent. Prior to that, I studied at the Arts Students League and the University of Miami. In addition, I have taught painting in an adult continuing education center in Riverdale, NY, and have also taught privately. I have also home tutored in Studio Art ( Drawing, Painting, and Art History) on the high school level, for the Cornwall Central School District.

Public Speaking

I have been employed as a sales manager for Century 21, where I held weekly sales meetings, in addition to training sessions on salesmanship.

In addition, I was the Sales Manager for Macy's/Bambedger's, where I held weekly sales meetings for a department of 50-60 sales people. I did training sessions on various topics, including skincare and makeup, in addition to how to build a sale.

I taught a class, in how to overcome nervousness, and be more confident, when giving a speech or a classroom presentation.

Spelling

As a student, I won several regional spelling bees. Later on in graduate school, my concentration was in vocabulary, and reading. I was a substitute teacher in grades K-4, and held spelling bees in class. Tips and clues for remembering the spelling of words, were often shared with my students.

At the University of Miami, where I was in attendance for three years, I had two majors, fine art and theatre.
I took approximately 18 credits in theatre. It included acting courses, and stage makeup.
II held parts in about six plays, of which four were musicals.

Vocabulary

I did extremely well in my SAT vocabulary. It has always been a goal of mine to increase my vocabulary in whatever way I can. I enjoy doing word puzzles regularly. In the past, I tutored/tested students in vocabulary for the SAT.
