East Carolina University (Art Education)
My multi-level experience includes direct-teaching with adult ESL students, middle school, and elementary tutoring/homebound. My effective interpersonal and communication skills with students of various ages and levels promote my ability to positively work well with individuals, pairs, or groups. Instruction with English grammar/mathematical websites as well as creative approaches to pair/group learning have positively influenced my teaching. Workbooks, textbooks, puzzles, vocabulary word searches, dictation and internet games are a few approaches that have proven successful.
My creative upcycled art utilizes found objects such as old house shutters, coffee bags, recycled wood, buttons, shells, and wisteria. I have a passion for using what we already own... or using what we discover in nature to design utilitarian pieces such as memo boards, pillows, trivets, wreaths, framed art, and trays.
I have direct teaching instruction with art projects for the summer Bell Program (grades 4-7)and McKinney-Vento English/math tutoring program (grades 2 and 4). Coordination with classroom teachers/grade level curriculum to support McKinney-Vento students is critical. The art projects for the Bell Program included two and three dimensional designs with a focus on paper, colored pencils/markers, wearable button art, mobiles, shoe box creations, burlap journals, to name a few.

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.
Specific areas to target include grammar, punctuation, pronunciation, and translation. Each student learns differently; i.e., some students are visual and others are auditory. A combination of skills can be affective through websites/manipulatives as well as reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
