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.

American History

I have a A.B. in History, from Clark University, Worcester MA. 1993, and expertise in American History with focus on ethnic history.

Art History

I have Ph.D.in Art History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2009 (Material Culture Certification). I studied American art, with a focus on painting, photography, print, and sculpture. I also studied African diaspora art and culture (sub-Saharan and Caribbean). In addition, I have almost a decade of experience teaching, curriculum development and assessment of student learning outcomes at college-level, K-12 and museum experiences.

Art Theory

I have a Ph.D. in Art History from The University of Wisconsin-Madison, and completed my dissertation with a focus on Visual Culture theory, Audience Reception Studies and Critical Race Theory.

College Counseling

Since 1995, I have served on the Cornell Alumni Admissions Ambassador Network.

From 1996-1999 I served as the assistant director of admissions for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. I was promoted from minority recruitment to newly developed high school relations position after only six months at which time I undertook responsibility for all public relations for enrollment services and led admissions team in development and implementation of PeopleSoft recruitment modules.

I have personal experience having attended and successfully completed degrees at institutions classified as private, public, and worked/recruited for HBCU.

English

I have a Ph.D and have published poems, art entries, and continue to remain current in the field.

Proofreading

PhD in Art History, MPA in Public Affairs
5 years college teaching experience in Arts and Sciences
10 years Literacy work
3 years Private consultant including editorial work

Public Speaking

As a college professor/academician, I have presented and published on a variety of topics including art history, history, and college admissions process which require the highest level of public speaking skills in order to communicate complex concepts. I have also served as the public relations person for various administrative departments at the University level.

In all my work with students as adviser for undergraduate capstone projects, college professor whose courses require oral presentations, and coordinator of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus guide/ambassador program, I have always trained students in methods, techniques, and ways to overcome fear of public speaking.

Reading

I am a former K-12 ELA and science teacher. Art Historian and college professor. Independently contractor for non profit organizations.

SAT Reading

I have taught ELA in K-12 grades and been an active member of several University based Reading and Writing committees charged to develop curriculum, assess standards and develop examinations that test students reading skills.

As a former college professor who works in non profit sector I am responsible for proofreading, editing and writing proposals and other official documents for a broad audience.

I have recently assisted in one of several Harvard Reading programs based in the Rockaways that witnessed an average 79% increase in their scores from the fall testing.

In addition, I currently work with improving literacy skills for adult learners who are reading for the first time in their lives.

Social Studies

As an interdisciplinary scholar whose background combines the areas of visual art, history, theory, African Diaspora culture, and education, I am equipped with the knowledge, experience and abilities to teach connections between seemingly disparate topics in order to engage students and various levels about events that impact our daily lives.

I am also an active volunteer with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and have led and served on all of the programs geared towards underrepresented girls ages 8 through 18. These programs are centered to enhance educational skills, cultivate civic minded individuals who seek to promote positive change on a local level. During regular meetings throughout the academic year, we present on topics that are socially-relevant and the students are asked to apply their learning to either answer or brainstorm solutions to problems, then present their arguments and answer questions from the group.

Study Skills

I possess a Ph.D. (art history-University of Wisconsin 2009), a master's degree (Africana studies- Cornell University 1995) and baccalaureate (history/education-Clark University 1993) in interdisciplinary fields with an emphasis on education.

I have served as interim chair, director of visual arts program, coordinator of museum studies, adviser, and taught at the college level for 5+ years with an average 3.5 in teaching evaluations (proof of evaluation available upon request).

I have developed an international curriculum, worked as a fourth grade English and science teacher and served as a substitute teacher in the New Castle county, Delaware region for K-12.

I have published an article through the New York University Faculty Research Network on-line journal about teaching study skills, assessment models, the development of rubrics for grading, and academic excellence.
