American Academy of Art
As a student in high school, I was not the strongest in many subjects. Because I struggled in a lot of my classes, I had to teach myself how to understand what was being taught through my own methods of education and learning. I know how to teach and tutor very well because I went through my own struggles of understanding and comprehension throughout my schooling. I tutor in a way that helps students remain calm, collected, and truly think outside the box in discovering the answers for themselves.
At the American Academy of Art in Chicago, I was a writing tutor and proofreader from 2005-2009. I helped my classmates read through essays, and instructed them on how to properly cite their papers and use correct grammar. I was also a swim instructor for 11 years, and have worked closely with all ages of children (and adults). As a swim instructor, I worked with children who had behavioral, developmental, and learning difficulties.
As for my art capabilities, I have a Bachelor of Fine Art in Illustration. I can teach students how to use oil, watercolor, and acrylic paint, as well as how to draw with charcoal, colored pencil, graphite, oil pastel, pastel, and pen and ink. I am extremely easy to work with, patient, and can help students grasp learning concepts in different ways. As a student in high school, I was not the strongest in many 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.
