DEREE THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF GREECE (English Literature)
Pratt Institute School of Architecture and Design (Master's)
With a BA in English Literature, I am very experienced in creative writing and reading comprehension. I have taught in the Corcoran College of Art and thrive best when sharing my knowledge with my students. I have a passion for teaching and love when my students learn and gain the confidence they need to excel. Having enriched both my children's elementary education, I am proud to say that they are well advanced in the language arts as well as math relative to their peers.

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 am Greek American and have lived in Athens, Greece for over 10 years. Both my parents were first generation Greeks and Greek was the only language spoken in my household until I went to elementary school. I travel to Greece every summer and am also married to a Greek man so Greek is often spoken within my household. I also took Greek grammar and vocabulary classes at the American College of Greece in Athens, Greece.
I started traditional painting lessons from 12 years old in both acrylic and oils. I have earned a Master of Science in Communication Design from Pratt Institute where I further developed my aesthetic and creative sense. I have been a professional artist and designer for more than twenty years and strive to capture the true essence of a person through my portrait painting. Most of my painting is done exclusively with a pallet knife, which translates well into my neo-expressionist style, but I can also do traditional paintings. It is very rewarding for me to teach painting because it gives me a lot of joy when my students can create something that they are proud of.
With a Bachelors Degree in English Literature I have a strong command of the English language. Having tutored both of my children in phonics I was able to get them to start reading and recognizing sight words at 4 years old. By age 5, both children were reading on a 1st to 2nd grade level. I love to work with young children and possess the patience and skills necessary to capture even the most active and inattentive child's interest. I feel that my creative background coupled with my strong command of the English Language gives me an edge in that I strive to make phonics fun.
