I have written numerous highly reviewed and ranked papers, primarily in the field of architecture. Architectural history, building technology, and green architecture are a few of the topics that I have previously written about. I know how to grab the reader's attention and keep it throughout the remainder of the piece. Graphics, detailed explanantions, as well as real world examples are a few trick I use to captivate the reader.

About Steven
I'm a recent graduate of the Boston Architectural College, and employed by a large architectural firm in Boston. I am currently teaching a Rhino 3-D course at the BAC I tutor in all aspects of architecture including portfolio design, writing, software tutoring, design critiquing, and overall academic guidance. For software, I specialize in the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros, and V-Ray. I've tutored students of all differing ages and skill sets, ranging from novice to advanced user. Further, I have numerous references and reviews about my services that I would be happy to pass along, as well as past design work that I have done both academically and professionally.

About Anne-Marie B.

Close
East Stroudsburg, PA
View Full Profile

I have taught many subjects to all ages for decades. My primary focus at present is English. Although I love teaching English in general, whether reading comprehension, grammar, or general verbal skills, my ultimate passion is writing. Expressing oneself in writing can be very cathartic, and I find that I enjoy helping students find their voice, their perspective and various ways of expressing themselves through the written word. Most students have something to say but lack the tools to effectively express it, so I patiently enlighten, empower and provide those tools.

About Anne-Marie
Hi, I'm Anne-Marie and I love to teach! I have been teaching for over 25 years and whether the subject is English, Music, College Prep or Italian, I love helping students reach their goals. I work hard to leave my students enlightened, encouraged and empowered. I have high standards and I really like to challenge students to achieve their full potential, but I also try to make the process interesting, engaging and fun. I'm patient, easygoing and I enjoy working with students of all ages and backgrounds. I always strive to get to know my students (and their needs) very well. Then I customize lessons according to need, aptitude and goals. One of the best parts of teaching for me is meeting and connecting with new people, and making a difference in their lives, so I really look forward to meeting and working with you!

Brooksville, FL

This writing workshop directs its emphasis on therapeutic writing.
Participants are guided to create written works that reveal and heal their self-doubts, self-sabotaging behavior, and other issues that delay them from being their best self. With over 25 years in case management and counseling, I will bring my expertise to each student with an individualized approach that will leave you renewed, recharged and invigorated to make the needed changes in one's life. Now let's get started!

About Jonita
As a mother of four, my first duty was to be the best and first teacher my children ever had. I have incorporated that love of teaching to other young people.

I believe in setting great expectations and celebrating small accomplishments, they, in turn, lead to bigger ones. I love working with children and have made this my business for over twenty years.

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, a minor in marketing and am currently working on my master's of fine art's degree in writing. I have self-published two books and am currently working on two more. I have founded the Royal Writers Organization, a nonprofit writing program for children and have brought workshops to children, schools and their community institutions for the last five years.

I was that child who wrote and read under my covers with a flashlight, way af
ter the time my parents told me to go to sleep. I wrote until my pencil forged its resting place on the side of my finger. This passion for writing is what I want for my students, and of which I have succeeded in bringing forth in varying degrees. I enjoy traveling to the worlds that lie within books and look forward to taking my students along with me.

My daughter needed help with her writing portfolio for an audition. I knew that the competition was going to be fierce and while I believe that my daughter has real talent I also knew that she needed help organizing here ideas. Needless to say, she was selected to participate in the writing program. We both know that Jonita’s guidance and collaboration helped her achieve that goal. Jonita’s teaching style is exceptional and refreshing. My daughter hopes to work with her again as she transitions to the next stage of her journey as a young writer.

About Kris J.

Close

I have a bachelor's degree in communications. I've written legal policies, procedures, desktop manuals, training guides, reports and other professional things. I would love to share my experiences with you!
Whatever you're writing, I can help you edit, rewrite, and proofread before you finalize your material.

About Kris
I'm a pretty laid back easy going guy. If you want to learn a variety of things, check out my subjects and I'd be happy to help you.

I have quite a bit of life knowledge and experience that I'm willing to share. I see myself as more of a tutor, helping students along the path to get better grades and understand their subject material better.

Some things to expect during a lesson: We will go over the material and find any areas you are struggling with. We will hone in on those areas and get to the root of the issue, then build you up so that you have a solid base of understanding and can grow from there.

I hope we can partner to enhance your education and knowledge.

I'm currently and undergraduate at ODU where I am president of a poetry club, and a member of the creative writing club. I plan to become an English professor and share my knowledge.
I have learned to listen from my experience teaching writing skills to my peers. I plan to listen to any concerns my students have, and help them with personalized sessions.

I most recently worked as a photographer, artist and writer on a documentary in the American West featuring artists working to save wild horses. I also was the director of an art program in Santa Barbara that taught the arts to over 500 youth for ten years.

I am a long time teacher with a Ph.D. My dissertation was a research study looking at the value of the arts in education. I often work on projects nationally as a contributor for various non profit causes that use the arts to bring attention to various worthwhile issues. My writing has resulted in 40 successful grants funded for arts projects over a 25 year period,

After decades of teaching in many settings, including a university, an arts project, and at both private and public schools as well as giving private lessons, it has been my experience that art and writing successfully are skills that anyone can learn with support.

pport. Picasso was absolutely correct when he said " Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up!"

I have a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from University of California at Santa
Barbara, A Master's degree in Organizational Non Profit Management and a Ph.D. in Human Development. All of my work and studies have involved art, photography and writing and often non-profit causes.

I teach students from all levels of art experience, from those who have never attempted to draw, to students who have many years experience looking to exhibit their art or make a living from it, I also teach art history in a fun way that helps you learn from painters who have created styles that help artists learn ways to improve their own work. I consider sharing my love of the arts a privilege!

I have taught many “so-called” Non- Artists to draw and paint and sculpt and have encouraged many others with art experience who are longing to further or start their art careers.

All that said, the most important thig I have to pass along is my personal LOVE of art and my commitment to encouraging others to find their own gift of creative expression! My art students do NOT need special skills or talents just a willingness to want to express themselves! Art is a funny thing, the more you enjoy it and learn it in a relaxed way, the better your actual art turns out when you make it. Hope to meet you and teach you soon!
