Being trained as a Waldorf Teacher has taught me how to build my own curriculum. This is based on child development and individual capacity. If I am working with adults it is primarily guiding them in an area of their own interest. I love to bring to children and adults the joy of whatever subject we are engaged in together. In any area, even math, there is the possibility of finding wonder in what you are learning. This joy, wonder, interest, and enthusiasm are the conditions to love what you learn and remember it your whole life. Experience: Music : I was a classically trained pianist for ten years. I then moved to study Jazz and contemporary music. I have also composed many pieces and performed them for various venues. I have been teaching music for six years and I teach a combination of all three styles and how to compose. I feel this repertoire gives the student freedom to express their musical personality. It also keeps learning dynamic. Art: I completed a BFA from Northwest College of Art. Along with showing my own work, I have been teaching art for the last five years. I Assisted at the island school art program and have taught individual lessons to children and adults. I have also been teaching portraiture and proportion to middle school classes. Mediums: Watercolor, Oil, Acrylic, Pastel, Charcoal, Figure drawing, Portrait, chalkboard drawing and Graphite. with younger children I often organize a variety of projects and styles so they can experience many kinds of art and decided what they are drawn to. Games: I have taught gymnastics for the BI park and reck. I have also had training in health, games, and special dynamics. Academics: I have been substitute teaching and student teaching for the last two years. I have taught everything from math, language arts, and anatomy, to storytelling, drawing, and yoga. I find the using games and movement to study academic subjects gives the student interest, enthusiasm, and a visceral experience that leads to deeper understanding. This is not just a hands on approach but mind, body, and feelings engaged.

What is a trial class?

Finding the right tutor takes more than a teaching profile page – it requires the right chemistry… Therefore, all our tutor members have agreed to offer new students a trial class to help determine if there’s a great fit. This means no semester-long contracts… just find a tutor, pay the flat NextGuru trial class fee and have a test run!

What happens after the trial?

That’s completely up to you! You have no obligation to continue classes. If you decide to continue, you work out the details (including schedule and payment method) directly with your instructor. If the chemistry wasn’t right, just come back to NextGuru and you can try another instructor…

How does NextGuru get paid?

All instructors are eligible for free membership – this is critical so that you can have the broadest, most diverse selection of teachers possible. Therefore, instead of paying a mandatory membership fee or a commission on lessons, our tutor members have given up their one-time trial class fee to help pay for technology and marketing costs.
