I truly enjoy working with students of all ages, but have has the most experience with preschool to middle school ages. I received my undergrad degree from the University of Wisconsin Madison in Art Education (K-12). I have nearly a decade of experience teaching art and language (English and Italian) to young students.
I have taught English as a second language to hundreds of students over the course of my 6 year stay living in Northern Italy. Through the International Language Centers where I worked I taught lessons at 4 preschools, 5 elementary schools, and 4 middle schools. I also taught adult classes beginner-advanced, as well as business English for international professions.
I began working with Photoshop for a webdesign project in college in 1999, and have been using it regularly ever since. I am familiar with most of the photo editing and design options the program offers. I have creating a number of small graphic design projects such as brochures, business cards and the like. I had additional training in Photoshop during my design studies in Italy. We used the program to create presentations of furniture prototypes and similar design projects. I am talented at explaining complex procedures in simple terms. I am interested in tutoring students with basic computer knowledge, who are just getting started with Photoshop.
