About Jane

I am a graduate student in the Conflict Resolution program at Portland State University. I am on the Dean's list again this term. Much of the testing for my classes has been in essay form, so my skills are very current. I am studying for my M.S. in Conflict Resolution, and will be completing certificates in the Training and Development program, as well as Technical Writing. I am writing my project proposal for my professional project which is required for graduation. I have some wonderful texts on academic and research writing that have been recommended by my teachers that bring research writing into sharp focus. I thoroughly enjoy the process of writing papers, and can't wait to help you learn to enjoy it, too! I am a graduate student in the Conflict Resolution program at Portland State University.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 completed a 2-year Pre-Professional Certificate in Graphic Arts from Lane Community College. I have taken figure-drawing, design and composition, water-color, and air-brush from the wonderful teachers there. My drawings have been published in the Denali student magazine at Lane Community College.

Graphic Design

I have a certificate of completion from Lane Community College in Graphic Design.

Painting

I have completed a 2-year certificate in Graphic Arts from Lane Community College, and have enjoyed water color, air-brush, and figure-drawing classes from the wonderful teachers there. I am familiar with washes, composition, and design theory. My drawings have been published in the Denali student magazine on campus at Lane Community College.

Public Speaking

I have been responsible for working within groups to create presentations for nearly every class that I have taken in graduate school. I have learned a great deal about how to manage presentations, group projects, and the creation of power points.

I have also become adept at finding various web based tools that add creative content to my presentations, such as "timerime" a site that allows the user to create their own time-line, complete with pictures and audio. The time-line can then be shown on your school's projector as a part of your presentation!

I have gathered material on public speaking from many classes at Portland State University, and Lane Community College. I look forward to passing it on.
