About Whitney

I was born in raised in the south in a family of five. I graduated from Cornell University where I was a Fine Arts Major, but I also received a certificate in African Studies (just a few credits short of a major in international relations). While at Cornell, I took a wide range of courses from art history, politics, and writing to even the sciences. I was often expected to write 20+ page papers for many of my classes. After graduation I moved home, then up to New York City, and finally to Rhode Island where I completed my MFA in Painting. Extensive amounts of reading and writing were also required during my graduate coursework. I also took a wide range of courses that covered topics from ethics, to critical theory, and philosophy. After graduation I was the sole recipient of the Fountainhead Fellowship at VCU. As part of my fellowship I teach undergraduates painting and drawing, but I frequently have my students read very challenging texts and write responses as well. I often read papers for my students and assist in advising them on career paths and completing applications.

Overall, I love to teach and I am certain that I will teach for the rest of my life. I enjoy teaching reading, vocabulary, grammar, writing, study skills, as well as analytic thinking. I am also able to help with any lower level math and science and assist in advising if need be. Lastly, I can help with resumes, cover letters, and school applications. I feel comfortable teaching a young child as well as a college student and I am very passionate about what I do.

I love to teach reading and writing. From a very young age I went to a school that upheld exceedingly rigorous writing and reading standards . Through both my undergraduate and graduate coursework, I was often required to read upwards of 100 pages per class and write very long papers. Overall, I truly believe that having strong reading and writing skills are absolutely necessary if you want to be successful in almost anything.

Please feel free to contact me. I am very flexible and easy going. I believe that learning can be fun and I will go above and beyond to help you.
