About Taryn

I was always drawing when I was a kid, and I've never stopped. I specialized in painting during my college years, and have had a few exhibitions and gallery showings since graduating. With experience as a full-time art teacher, I am skilled at pushing students in their artistic pursuits. I work as a custom art framer now and want to continue to nurture and develop artistic impulses in others. Because creative processes are personal and individual, I strive to adapt my teaching style accordingly to each student's needs.

In addition, I have spent a fair amount of time studying Japanese art and the Japanese language. I love the artistic principles and masterpieces that Japan has produced over centuries of civilization. I also have a fondness for their language, which I can read, write and speak at an elementary to intermediate level.

I have done conversational English tutoring, and I have taught in an elementary public school setting. I studied Japanese for one year in college and have pursued my studies independently since. I also did a short-term study abroad trip in Osaka and will visit again this June.

Throughout my youth, I filled countless notebooks, art pads, homework assignments and textbook margins with drawings. Through years of curiosity and challenges, I have begun to develop my own personal style, and I have gained a confident joy in sharing my art knowledge and techniques with others.

Thank you for considering me as a tutor. Please contact me with any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!

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

My training in drawing started when I was in elementary school. My parents recognized that I drew obsessively so they offered me every art implement and supply under the sun. By the time I got to college, I had won school awards and contests for my drawings. I graduated from Emporia State University with honors with a BFA in the Fine Arts and have continued my passion for drawing through assorted freelance design jobs, in addition to personal projects.

Painting

I graduated with a BFA in Fine Art, with an emphasis in painting. My coursework included traditional oil painting, acrylics, watercolors, printmaking, etching, digital painting and more. I am also familiar with safe materials handling and techniques. I have had several exhibitions so I'm familiar with how to prepare artwork for displays. I currently work as a custom art framer, which utilizes my design skills on a daily basis.
