Masters' degree educator gives reading, writing and art lessons to students in Columbus area.

Methodology

I am an experienced teacher (15+ years) with a background in fine arts , reading and writing. I am also a certified Microsoft Office specialist. I have taught in schools and community centers both children and adults.
In lessons I have taught, students worked to improve or achieve: their art creations, reading abilities, basic writing skills and utilizing Microsoft Office Word and Excel.
We begin by considering what you know now /what you can do currently. We discuss your goals and explore ways for you to accomplish these. Then, I share strategies, you put one or more ideas into practice and we meet again either on-line or in person.

Background

I have been giving lessons off and on since 1985 in Chicago and Cincinnati areas. These included one-one private lessons and small groups (6-10) Art Camp for six summers. I have taught in two elementary schools and two high schools for one year each students grades Kindergarten through 9th grade. I moved to Columbus in 2016 to accept a full time teaching position in a Charter School and was laid off October 2017. Teaching is my passion which is why I plan on continuing to teach through Superprof.
