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 been a commissioned artist for 5 years, and am currently teaching Art at a private school. I teach based on classical principles of utilizing the elements of art: value, shape, line, texture, and color in order to create more complex and elaborate drawings. I also teach anatomy of the human body from the skeleton to muscular structure for more anatomically correct figure drawing.

English

I have been an English mentor for Rosetta Stone for 3 years. I passed the Pennsylvania State subject test for teacher's of English, and I have tutored English privately since 2007.

Latin

I am currently a Latin teacher at a K-12 school in Pennsylvania. I graduated with a degree in Latin and German from West Chester University, and I have tutored Latin privately for 5 years, emphasizing an understanding of the underlying grammar in order to grasp difficult texts.

Painting

I have been a commissioned artist for 5 years, and am currently teaching Art at a private school. I have moved through advanced courses in both acrylic and oil painting and understand the differences in technique for both painting styles.

Public Speaking

I understand the core of constructing both informative and persuasive speeches and also of formatting ideas in a concise way having spoken publicly for 7 years for both school and community issues. I have taken speech and acting instruction for 8 years. I received first place in Dramatic Interpretation and Oratory at the PAJCL Convention 3 years in a row, and tutored other students in lower levels of Oratory and DI to receive high placement during that time. I have also tutored dramatic reading and helped students and community members who needed to give speeches to overcome their fear of public speaking through self-awareness and confidence in speech construction capabilities.

Study Skills

As a teacher at the middle-grades and high school level, I have a deep understanding of study skills necessary to succeed academically. I emphasize time-management, reading thoroughly, creating mental connections and regularity in study schedules.

In school, I maintained above a 4.0 GPA at the high school level and a 3.96 out of 4.0 GPA at the college level.

Writing

I have tutored essay writing and creative writing for five years focusing on both informative and persuasive essay writing and most genres of creative writing ranging from modern fiction to fantasy to science fiction. I emphasize the importance of directed vocabulary as well as basic grammatical rules within a written piece, where a paragraph should end and begin, how to form dialogue, how to insert a long quote or a short quote, etc.
