Tutoring Style and/or Experience

(Just launched as a tutor)

Art to me has always been a passion, I could draw ever since I was 3 years old (no lie! I must be blessed!). It'll be MY pleasure to help you any way I can in appreciating art, creating art and LOVING art in all its forms. I also love to teach by means of building a relationship with the student. My teaching style is all about giving attention to the student's concerns about art and come up with a good lesson plan in a way that is memorable, effective and EASY for the student. My focus is primarily on listening and cooperating. I could be a teacher but I'm also a life-long student (believe it or not, you can learn some valuable things from young people) so feel free to inform me anything I might not know, young or old, we'll both benefit. With first-hand experiences I get from sitting in a boring class room, I know why some students aren't so excited about learning. I'll help loosen you up even if it's a bad day for me without the bad jingles. I am also great at helping you or your child on art projects. On a testimonial note, for those that I've helped, none of them ever had a B+ or lower on their art project(s), therefore I've gained trust in my skills and capabilities to save any stressful art students (or even bump up their grade one whole letter!)

NOTE: Please read my profile carefully before asking questions, I teach elementary school, middle-school, and high school students. Those who do not belong in these groups, I recommend that you take an appropriate college course for your art study to acquire a more technical and systematic lesson plan which is beneficial and more compatible for your age.

Thanks for checking out my profile.
