I currently tutor online and in person in Middle School and High School History, Social Studies, English Language Arts, English as a Second Language, Sociology and various other humanities subjects. I have been teaching visual arts and art history for over 18 years. My teaching experience has been mainly in K-8. I have also taught literacy through the arts so that students improve their reading, writing, grammar, creative writing, and comprehension skills. I have written my own curriculum and projects throughout my career, always connecting my lessons to major subject areas and themes. I have a masters in elementary education and am certified in both New York City and State in Art K-12. I am able to teach all mediums and techniques in the visual arts. In addition, I have helped students move to the next level in their subject areas by tailoring my approach to their ways of learning.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My first session consists of interviewing the student to discover their personality, interests, ways they excel, and learning struggles that they are facing. I observe the student while he or she works so that together we can pinpoint the areas that need growth and improvement.
