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 pencils, colors, paper, etc. if they so desire.
Various creative arts projects are also worked on!

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 preparance for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geom
etry, 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, I 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 interactive models) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes:
1. Tutoring based on the school curriculum
2. Instruction on the home-schooling curriculum
3. Assisting those with a gap in going back to school/university.

I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or last remembers 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.

It is hard to get a lot out of a lesson doing it remotely. And in one hour! She was wonderful but I think I would like to try lessons either in a group setting or individual face to face. That way she could help me correct mistakes as I go.

Lessons would be individualized to focus on areas that need the most guidance.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Do you want to learn the basics of art? How about how to use watercolors to enhance your drawings? Or would you like to learn how to market your art online? Well, I may be the teacher for you! I am an Illustration graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I teach lessons to anyone who wants to perhaps dabble in the arts, to any artist who may want to learn how to further their artistic journey. I want my students to be submerged in the art world. I want to create a safe environment for any student to have fun and explore their inner artist.

About Emily
Hello there! I'm Emily Carrier, an artist, illustrator, and all around nerd. I am a freelance Illustrator who works primarily on children's books and character designs. I have studied illustration for four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). I have been drawing ever since I could hold a crayon. My love for art only grew with time. Now, my art style can be described as whimsical and quirky. I have worked with different clients and have even produced four children's books with more on the way!

I am here to help any beginner artist who wants to learn the fundamental basics of art, to the intermediate artist who may want to further their skills and experiment with new materials and techniques. Being a graduate of an art school, I have been emerged in an environment that pushed my own boundaries and creativity. I have lea
rned new techniques and ways to promote my art and spread my love around the world. I would love to mentor any student who wants to learn more about art, whether it is for their own personal projects or if they wish to pursue art as a career.

Art is one of the most important subjects that can be taught. It allows one to explore themselves and the world around them. You learn to harness your inner creativity which can help develop problem solving skills. You do not have to be Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, or Leonardo Da Vinci to express yourself through art. The point of art is to find your own inner happiness.

I have been drawing since age 3, and competing artistically since age 6. My complete love and passion for art has helped me win many awards, and graduate with a fine arts degree with honors from the Academy of Art University. I would love to share all my experience with you! I believe anyone can learn to draw, and I can teach a wide variety, from surrealism to photo realism, including portraits! I have several years of teaching experience, and can teach any age bracket! Your lesson plan will be catered to your abilities and goals for the best experience.

About Amber
I am a professional freelance artist, and owner of Leola Studios. I have been doing custom artwork for over 15 years, and have several contract jobs with businesses on my resume. I have an Associates Degree in Fine Arts/Animation from Academy of Art University.

I specialize in photo realism, and 90% of the private commissions I get are portraits. However, I work in a broad range of styles and mediums, from line work to abstract to sketch, with charcoal to paint to clay. I love expanding my knowledge and trying new things, but above all I love creating!! I feel that imagination and expression through art/music/literature are crucial to a person's development, and this is something I pass on to my daughters, and frequently fundraise for, in an attempt to keep art programs in our schools.

I love meeting new people and sharing my knowledg
e, so after having so many people ask me to show them how to draw, I began teaching. I've taught one on one, and classes large in size. I have also taught young children, up to age 98! I am very patient and don't mind a slew of questions! I want to help students become the best at their craft.

Art is my passion and so important in our world, with proven benefits! I'd like to think with teaching, I'm helping to keep it alive, even if just in my small way.

Amber is very talented! I wanted to learn to draw people realistically and before I started learning from Amber, I did not use charcoal much. Amber specifically targets the lessons and will help you reach your goals. I feel much more comfortable with charcoal. It feels good to have a finished product by the end of the lesson and to be proud of your work. Amber is talented also in teaching and has a very kind personality. I look forward to our lessons.

I have known Amber many years and can attest to her artistic capabilities. I have sat in on two of her painting classes; she was great at walking us through the piece step-by-step, and was very patient with all our questions. She laughed with us and made it fun! I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to learning from her again!

As a mid-20s poet and musician trying to expand into visual art, I found confidence I didn't know I had by taking lessons in drawing and painting with Brittany. With an encouraging demeanor, she has taught me techniques that organically lead to the kind of art I have always wanted to make. After my lessons with Brit, I feel inspired and motivated to keep making art and confident enough to push myself to new levels. No matter if you're just starting out or working on a portfolio, I couldn't recommend her enough!

'DRAWING FOR ANIMATION' course:

With this course format I will personally guide students through all of the 66 exercises that can be found in my purpose designed textbook... 'The Animator's Sketchbook'.

This course will be taught to the level of a degree course subject and graded accordingly. (Although it should be emphasized that this is NOT a part of any college degree program and will therefore not offer transferable credits as a result!)

The course will introduce students to all the all core principles of animation, design and pre-production that a master animator OF ANY STYLE will need to create their own project. It will be entirely executed through timed 'gesture drawings', or other forms of 'drawing through observation'.

The bulk of the student work will be done in their own time, outside the online lessons - although a great deal of instruction and feedback will be completed within the booked teaching time.

To cover the entire book, with one-on-one ...

About Tony
I am a British Academy Award winning animator who has made over 200 TV Commercials, 2 TV Specials, several Short Films, and ‘The Pink Panther Strikes Again’ movie titles at the beginning of my career. From the outset I was personally taught by some of the most amazing master animators ever - Ken Harris ('Bugs Bunny' and 'Roadrunner' for Warner Brothers), Art Babbit ('Pinocchio' and 'Fantasia' for Disney) and Richard Williams (3 times Oscar winner). I later successfully ran my own award-winning London animation studio for 20 years, before moving to the States in 1998 to live and teach. In the USA I have taught at the highest college level for over 14 years, when I also became author of several respected books on animation, including - 'Animation from Pencils to Pixels', 'How To Make Animated Films', 'The Animator's Notebook' and 'The Anima
tor's Sketchbook'. Animation schools and colleges around the world use my books. My own master animator reputation & expertise has been developed through traditional, hand-drawn (2D) animation for the film industry. However, I have since developed a whole range of teaching techniques that will help students of ALL forms of animation, whether its for the Film, Games, TV or the Web industries. The ‘core principles of movement’ are essential for all kinds of animation, whether it be 2D, 3D, Claymation, Stop-frame or any other kind. So I now focus less on technology and software, and more on the core principles of movement through ‘gesture drawing from observation’ and other means. In this way my students do not need to purchase extremely expensive equipment or software, they often need little more than a pencil, eraser and a sketchbook – with a lot of their own dedication they need to bring to the party. I am also insistent that students of animation also learn about fundamental design, layout, film structure and storyboarding - as all these are all essential to all great, animation. So I hope you will join me and become yet another of my successful students who are currently working in the animated film and/or video game fields today.

Tony White has the patience to watch inspired animators grow. His ideas feed into our concepts we have and he is the adviser that guides us to how our ideas become a reality on paper or on a monitor. He has assisted me to where I am today.

I have been consistently teaching groups and a one on one basis for the past 3 years. I understand from an early age the impact art has. I specialize each class according to the need and desire of each of my students. I will creat an art platform so it will be easy to reference back to.

Her talent was discovered by her mentor, her grandfather, also an artist.She had an eye for color. She could draw anything as an exact match. Eventually this amazing talent and passion translated into paintings. This connection with colliding colors is what initially set her work apart in shows and competitions and has led to a growing following of galleries and collectors alike.

Andrea has been featured in many publications in and around the art community. She’s donated paintings to many organizations in Dallas, TX, Riverside, CA and in the Orange County area.

She has since independently illustrated and published her own children’s book. Andrea has decided to follow her heart, her passion, and her dreams by teaching others.
