Subject matter can be tailored for younger children with simpler more basic skills-development, or for teens and adults with alternating theoretical and practical sessions that refine their more complex abilities.
My patient personality and experience with those with learning disabilities means that I am prepared to modify the style and content of my courses to optimize everyone’s learning potential.
I love to help people enjoy their learning experiences.... and I appreciate how everyone has their own pace when it comes to absorbing new information.
Pamela is an excellent professional , she really knows how to teach photography , has a lot of paciente and calm as well . I am really happy that I met her and was able to take lessons with her . I will probably continue learning more skills with her
I worked with Pamela at Calipso one afternoon to learn how to take better outdoor photos of my clients and our natural surroundings with my inexpensive Android smart phone. She was patient with my inexperience and the limitations of my hardware. Also, Pamela was willing to put up with the conditions (water, weather, wild animals, mosquitoes, etc) in my job (we are a team of paddleboard/kayak tour guides). In particular, her well organized, start-from-the-basics approach to teaching was what made the session worthwhile for me. Pamela taught color-theory, the importance of lighting, use of filters, distance, angles, shooting positions and even how to manage models in such a way that a non-artistic type like me would understand! My photo game has greatly improved in one session with Pamela and I highly recommend her services as a photography instructor.
Pamela is such a nice, easy going, fun person to be around. She takes care to make sure her students understand the material and guides them towards success. Her method of teaching is well-rounded, and immersive.
The overall professionalism and attention to detail before during and after the made me feel like a VIPand produced excellent photos for my business profile.
First, I discover their expectations for the learning experience.
Second, I learn their personal interests so I can customize the content into activities that they will enjoy and remember.
Third, I map the course objectives to the course duration so that students can learn the optimal amount of content given their learning style and the time they have to absorb the information.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts and have completed Masters-level coursework in Special Education.
$30/hr is my standard rate for clients within Miami-Dade. Special rates apply for out-of-county or special cases (to be discussed).
My first professional classes were Spanish lessons for a 12 year old girl in 2005 and, later that year, photography one-on-one classes for adults.
I have work with children from 4 to 12 years old, teenagers in an Upward Bound program and adults of various age groups and backgrounds.
