I teach sketching, painting (watercolor, oil and acrylic) to children 5-10 years of age as way to release stress, gain confidence, and express themselves!
All materials are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own brushes, paints, paper, etc. if they so desire.

About Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparing for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geome
try, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, and prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and virtual art) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes those with a gap in going back to school/university. I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or remembers last covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

I did regents prep with Julia for my high school honors physics class back in 2011. I am now back with Julia for my calc-based college physics course! Her teaching style saves the day and I'm already better understanding my course material. She goes over each topic with her own notes and examples. I do what she assigns me first before I move on to my actual hw, and it brings me great results. I feel extremely confident about my upcoming midterms. Thank you!!!

As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.

My approach to painting is one that starts with understanding the basic foundation! Starting from the bottom and working our way up, covering all aspects. I encourage the students to look at their work constructively and help train their eye to see their work from multiple perpectives. We will go through the basic elements to create a form in space, through color, line, texture, composition, medium manipulation, and so on. Once the foundation is established the vision can truly come alive!

I have worked with children as young as three and young adults up through high school in an array of media, including tempera, acrylic, gouache, and oil paint in subjects from figure modeling and cityscapes to abstract painting, illustration, and murals. I emphasize using one's own style and vision and introduce techniques as they are requested either verbally or through careful study of my students' process.

About Alexander
My current teaching focus is helping to enable young people to develop confidence, self-direction and self-reliance in their life's work by unleashing their creativity in various subjects while offering them new skills and techniques.

I have been enthusiastically teaching for over twenty-five years, generally in the fields of fine art and web development. Previously, I founded an alternative K-12 school in New Jersey, co-founded a Brooklyn based summer camp, and most recently, co-founded play:groundNYC, a junkyard playground for children on Governors Island in New York City, where children are self-directed in their play with an array of junk materials for uninhibited play and discovery.

I am a certified New York State art teacher, have taught K-12, college, graduate, and continuing education. I have a Masters in Fine Art from Pars
ons School of Design, The New School University and a Bachelors of Arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

Alex is kind and patient. He is always well prepared, explains things clearly and makes an effort to come up with new activities. We're glad we found a teacher so close to home and we feel lucky. My daughter looks forward to every class. Sometimes Alex's sons join the lesson. They are lovely - my daughter really enjoys their company and I'm glad that she has both individual instruction as well as the chance to work with his kids.

Our 9 year old has spent many hours with Alex creating clay sculptures, wooden weaponry, and forts from old cardboard and tires. He also taught him how to code in order to create his own blog. Alex inspires, guides and challenges kids but allows them to self-direct themselves in order to make their own personal and creative decisions.

Visual Art is another dimension, another reality. It can be true or invention. It can be poetic or logical. Is where you learn to recreate and express it to others.

I encourage people to develop their own art technique. I can provide courses and tutoring all levels of development. Starting from the Art fundamentals for the more advance sense to advance composition and creation. I always consider carefully what are the interests and goals of my students to develop a custom course for them. I have a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts from the University of Puerto Rico and a Master Degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, from Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain.

My course can range from traditional drawing methods, to experimental painting technique. I can flourish the course with cool art history facts.

I think is the most important part in the painting class is to know where do you want to head up. And then, lets go!

About Gabriela
I started the Art carer when I was 8 years old! I started drawing cartoons and fine art work masterpieces because I love it and I could understand it. I actively took a variety of workshop being a teen age to adulthood.

In 2010 I graduated from University of Puerto Rico from the Fine Art Department with the opportunity to do an Art in Residence in my last graduating year. Luckily to me I started running a professional workshop since this times. Under this program we got the amazing opportunity to go as far as our creativity allows. There were no limits, from sculpture, to paintings, to installations, to drawings.

After graduation I continue studies research in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in the Polytechnic University of Spain. Studding abroad, I got the opportunity to meet international perspectives on the Arts
. Historical research and the chemistry of art supplies where my new deed. I got involve in multiple antiques preservation projects under the direction of multiple professionals of the field in Spain, San Francisco, and New York.

I started teaching professionally in 2013, after my Master's was accomplished. I have being working with people all ages. Mostly I do free lance adult courses and during day time, I teach children ages 9 to 11 at school art education programs. At the present moment I live in New York. I run 2 painting workshops and work part time at Split Level Gallery. I keep myself pretty active on the arts, always with a very positive perspective.

If is good, is possible!

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff
I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art in Van Nuys, CA and the Sadie Valerie Atelier in San Francisco.

The program of study for drawing will include: Demonstration of one, two and three point perspective, creating the nine step value scale, cast drawing in charcoal, the still life in charcoal and drawing the portrait. The topic of composition will also be covered. I’ve done commissioned work for Audi, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the American Repertory Theater, the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, Kessler Financial Ser
vices, Harvard Business School Publishing, Shilo Baptist Church, the Chelsea Soldiers Home and others. Samples of my work are available to view in my profile. Additional samples are available upon request.
