Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have a silly friendly, easygoing personality that makes every lesson enjoyable, so you're not just learning a new skill every lesson, you're having fun with it too.

My approach to teaching will always be towards the comfort of the individual. Everyone learns differently, so I adapt to others to make learning easier for them; To their thinking, to their preferences. You're not learning at the pace I set, you're learning to yours. This is why I like to work with students one on one.

People tell me I'm easy to talk to, open minded, and approachable.

I learn my crafts in inside and out, and then I break it down into simple, easy to understand terms and metaphors anyone can get. When you just want someone to give it to you straight, or you'd like it "In English, please." I'm you guy. And If you'd like it straight from the text books, with larger concepts and more technical terms, I can supply that too. It all depends on what your needs are, and how to meet them.

Teaching since:
2017

My name is Keith, I'm 24, and I'm a self-taught artist of many fields. Currently working part time with a school that teaches STEM Interests, Electives, Engineering and Creative classes to kids and adults alike.

I am hugely creative and technical individual. In my spare time I employ everything I teach for fun, whether it be writing, or cosplaying. (You know those people you see walking around those big nerd conventions every year with the cool costumes? Comic-Con and Anime Expo? I'm one of those guys!)

People have told me I'm very easy to talk to, approachable, and fun. Very positive, very outgoing and confident. I have a big belief in everyones potential. Talent is a pursued interest. Anything you want to learn, you absolutely can. All you have to do is open your mind to it, and practice

I'm very passionate about my teachings, and when we talk, you'll hear it. I am enthralled with the world, and how things work. Everything is so cool and so exciting, there's nothing not to love. Getting to share that everyday would be a joy in and of itself.

Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins took me on with minimal experience in Baking and Cake decorating and gave me the training I needed to be amazing. From classic cakes to custom orders I picked up the skill very quickly and got to work. I specialize in ice cream cakes.

Keith taught me how to make the most fantastic advertising flyer for my music business! The graphic is so eye catching! Learning how to layer all the elements and see how they come together to produce the desired effects was very satisfying.

Creative Writing · Online

Keith and I were collaborative writing partners for approximately four and a half months and every conversation was an absolute delight. I learned so much useful material about clarification of language, characterization and development. Keith is not only patient, but in depth. He takes time to fully explain concepts and is clearly passionate about everything he says and does. He's a rare creative mind in a world of two-dimensional thinkers and I feel extremely humbled that he gives such genuine support and inspiration every time we speak. Keith is a critical thinker who always takes the time to process your writing before giving feedback and his feedback is always fair and suggests different options to help my improvement. He is an all-around amazing collaborator and has limitless writing talent of his own. Anybody would be very lucky to have his guiding assistance.
