I am a natural born artist with knowledge in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, textiles, digital media, and cartooning. Art is my lifelong passion, and despite a career in business management and an education in mental health, I continue to create and work as an artist.
My fascination with child development has also been a staple throughout my life. I cared for children in a group home setting providing therapeutic childcare, which was a highly rewarding experience, and throughout my education, I carried out a variety of research focusing on how children learn, think, and communicate. My Master's thesis was even focused on the youth population. I am skilled in tailoring projects to your child's needs and skill level and always promote positivity and self expression. The understanding I have gained of the developing mind, along with my creative spirit, professional demeanor, and fun-filled projects would make me your child's favorite tutor.

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 sold numerous drawings throughout my life. My specialty is black and white photorealism, although I am also skilled in portraits, caricatures, markers, charcoal, colored pencils, pastels, oil crayons, landscapes, animals. I thoroughly understand the elements of drawing and can teach them to others, including shading, perspective, color theory, stippling/hatching, composition, depth, proportions of the body, etc. I have taken collegiate level studio art classes, passing all with an A.
I have experience working with children as well, through tutoring, therapeutic childcare, and conducting scientific research throughout my education in psychology and mental health.
