About Douglas

I have eleven years of teaching experience in the private sector, in addition to interacting with students and colleagues of all ages, cultures, and socioeconomic backgrounds. I have conversational Japanese language abilities having lived in Japan for four years, as well as, continuing to study Japanese for two years after returning to the US. I have also taught Japanese and Technologies for three years at a private independent elementary school. I taught ESL (English as a Second Language) in Japan for four years and for one year in the US with the Marshall University LEAP program. I have also taught art for three years at the Oglebay Institute Stifel Fine Arts Center.

As far as my technology background is concerned I have six years of cross platform technical support experience. I was a technology coordinator for three years and seven months and I worked as a technical support specialist for both Amazon (14 months) and Honda R&D Americas, Inc. (17 months).

On a side note, I ran multicultural visual arts summer camps for 3 years and developed and ran Japanese culture and language camps for three years as well.

I have a clean background check as I am a certified substitute in the state of Ohio and I have a Resident Educator License Multi Age (P-12) Visual Arts. I will post this information soon.

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've been drawing since I was a child. I majored in Art Education and Graphic Design in High School and College. I've also taught Art at the Oglebay Institute Stifel Fine Arts Center for three years.
