EducationMaryland Institute College of Art - BFA, Painting
ExperienceIn 2002, I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis on painting. At present, I'm working to obtain my teaching credential in visual arts from the University of California, Los Angeles. I discovered that I have a passion for teaching when I began tutoring in 2000, and over the past eight years I've worked with the Los Angeles Unified School District as a substitute teacher and tutor. Through my work with the Los Angeles Unified School District, I've had the pleasure of working with students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. This has helped me develop my tutoring skills immensely.I believe that students can excel academically if they receive an education that's centered around students. I work hard to help my students build confidence and learn how to solve problems on their own so that they are able to tackle the most difficult subjects with perseverance. I understand that it's important to work patiently with students who are struggling in specific areas to find alternative ways to solve the problem at hand, which gives my students the ability to develop their own learning style. I tutor students in English, reading, writing, phonics, literature, grammar, pre-algebra, algebra I, geometry, elementary school math, middle school math, and arithmetic. I also tutor students in American history and social studies. Additionally, I'm available for tutoring during the summer months, to help students with essay editing, assist college students with writing college essays, and help students prepare for ISEE testing at all levels.In my free time, I enjoy drawing, painting, and playing guitar. I also like to go hiking and play soccer.
