Fun and easy to understand. Photography is very hands on and I myself learn by doing. I will not bore you with a bunch of textbook info or history lessons, you can learn that on your own. We will focus on what your interests are and create fun assignments and images based on that.

I believe a good student/teacher relationship is one where they learn from each other.

I am a fine artist, and I am an art lover! I have taught art to kids and adults of all levels, and I have studied art for many years.
I love drawing and painting, going to museums, talking about art, and participating in group art shows. I draw and paint from life every day. I can help you to make your drawings more life-like, improve your color sense, or paint a scene that you picture in your imagination.

I just finished my first painting class with Tabitha as a beginner. She is an excellent teacher with immense patience. She encourages a lot and gives a better understanding of colors, textures. It has been a very knowledgeable first class.

For six grade levels, I had handwriting as an official school subject. I was expected to print Roman letters correctly, write cursive script at the correct angle and form, and incorporate my own unique style into proper penmanship. I also learned how to hold the writing implement the correct way so as not to strain the hand or fingers and maintain a steady flow of writing. I later took calligraphy as an art course during one year of high school. I have helped elementary school and middle school students practice and improve their handwriting, manuscript and cursive, and I can assist adults as well.

About Natalie

During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn

Natalie has taught me numerous of great skills which are effective in a good way. She has taught me Algebra 1 and English and ever since she was my tutor, my grade started increasing by A LOT after 3-4 lessons! I'm so thankful that she is my tutor even though i always ask her numerous of questions but she is very patient and fun to talk with. Thank you SO much Natalie! I highly recommend her as your tutor!

**I will be sending out a material list prior to our lessons.

Each student is different and unique so classes will be adjusted to each of you.
The following is a guideline for us.

We will begin the class with an introduction to the subject matter where I will demonstrate my process and thought into the drawing. After this useful introduction, you will be the one drawing and learning! I will be there through the process guiding you.
First, we will focus on studying how to draw what you see. We will work on perception through geometric shapes. After a few months with life still models and objects, we will start on figures and portraits.

Our training together will focus on:
-Understanding drawing tools and materials.
-Approaching the drawing with simple geometric shapes.
-Acquisition and development of reflective habits and representative skills.
-Develop the capacity for immediate acquisition (notes and sketches).
-Initiate tonal and chiaroscuro assessment studies.

"Jessica is a GREAT drawing teacher! My two daughters aged 7 and 9 have been having lessons with Jessica for a couple of months and she has done such an excellent job of catering to their very different personalities and preferred learning styles. She is so patient and calm. She has taught them various techniques, including how to work with charcoal, and they have both improved so much in such a short time. My kids really look forward to their lesson every time, and carry on with their projects when the lesson is over. I highly recommend her!"

Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him."
