About this pro

I teach in a laid back relaxed manner because I view art as a relaxing calming endeavor. I also try to make learning fun. 

I absolutely love art in all its forms from fine art to animation and graffiti. Being able to create something from your mind is a very rewarding feeling.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Find out what the student wants to learn and what their skill level is and work from there

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$30  per hour for painting or drawing lesson. 
$40 per hour for animation lesson. 
my teaching process will have the student become independent rapidly so numerous lessons shouldn't  be required 

How did you get started teaching?

I have been teaching since around 2004 in the dental field [ dental assisting ] And I have been teaching art for about five years. I love being able to share my knowledge with others.

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and all types.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We had a painting class at a retirement center and it was rewarding bringing some joy to the students. For some, it was the highlight of their day.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Know what it is that you want to learn and be specific. If you want to learn many mediums, then focus on one first and then move to the next. 

Have some patience. Everyone has different talent levels and skills and sometimes it takes time to improve. As in most things, practice makes perfect.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

1. What is the goal?- what does the student want to gain?

2. How serious is the student about reaching the goal?
