About Teresita D.

ART:
I love making art accessible to everyone. I am passionate about helping people get in touch with the artist that lives within them. Many people think they're "not good at art" but my philosophy is that you can be good at art as long as it makes you feel something. If you enjoy it, that's good enough!
I am currently teaching 8 adult students. My students range from 5 years old to 80!
I have a Fine Arts degree from Loyola University and have over 20 years of teaching art one on one. I have taught art in home school settings for the Elgin school district in Illinois. I’m currently looking towards becoming the artist in residence for the Hillsboro elementary school district working with underserved students through an arts grant. I am also the artist in residence for Current Theatrics out of Vegas and have worked as a photographer, graphic designer, web designer, set designer and prop master.

COOKING:
I have a Chef certification from the Wellspring Wellness Institute. I also have 20 years of providing one on one cooking classes. Classes will be tailored to your skill level, ability and palate preferences.
I also can accommodate...
... special diets: (Keto, Atkins, Vegan, Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Raw)
...special skills: knife skills, soups, sauces
...ethnic cuisine preferences: Mexican, Japanese, Indian, Spanish, Italian, Mediterranean, South America etc.

SPANISH:
I'm a native speaker with a degree in Spanish Literature and over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I have a more, "real life/conversational" teaching. Classes will be tailored to your skill level and ability.

MICROSOFT:
You will learn MS Suite products in a one on one hands on class tailored to your current skill level. Over 20 years working with and teaching MS products.

Terri has been a great teacher with my children. She elicits cooperation without being authoritarian. My kids are always asking when class is and are super excited when she rings our doorbell. I can't imagine a better endorsement

Having a great time learning watercolor from Teresita! She's very clear with her instructions and super patient with me. She incorporates art theory into every class combined with an enjoyable exercise/piece.
