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.

I have extensive education in Art History. I have used Art History in the classroom to help my students learn from the masters and as a opportunity to learn about cultures outside of their own. I love art and have learned throughout my life.

Art Theory

I have an extensive educational background in Art Theory. I understand the value of these theories. The theories of art help a learner understand formalism, existentialism, purity and art for the sake of art. As a professional artist I appreciate the way the critics like Rosenberg, Greenberg, Steinberg and Harold have helped move modern art and postmodern art.
