Private Calligraphy Teacher

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

Japanese calligraphy is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language.

In modern calligraphy, a number of tools are used to make a composition. Most basic four tools were collectively called Four Treasures of the Study.
You need to purchase at the Japanese store or internet store.

1. A brush
2. An ink stick (sumi).
3. Mulberry paper (washi)
4. An inkstone (suzuri) to grind the inkstick against, mixed with water.

5. A paperweight (bunchin) to hold the paper in place
6. A cloth (shi ta ji ki) to place under the paper (often newsprint is used as well) to prevent ink from bleeding through.

I can teach you how to make money with Calligraphy and Hand Lettering.

I start out with nomenclature, then I go into the basics of composition, flourishes, tracking, and anatomy. Then I get into skeletal stroke order for Serif, Sans Serif and Script (focusing on whichever one the student wants), and I provide more in depth training in each specific style of interest.

I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun.

"As our first lesson Moataz began by explaining the historic origin of calligraphy which was interesting and helpful. He then moved to fonts and their importance and various styles as they evolved with the specifics of basic rules of calligraphy.
He is open to my needs as a student and knowlegable and responsive to questions."

"My first class with Moataz was nothing short of amazing. He is a walking pillar of information on the subject matter, but never in a arrogant manner. He was thorough in his explanation; which helped me to walk away more knowledgeable.
We had a few technical hiccups but he didn't miss a beat.
I definitely intend to follow up with more classes with him in the near future.
Thanks, Moataz!"
