...I know how to teach a basic concept and then give plenty of exercises to complete on your own, maximizing the use of the tutoring time. In short, I can help you out from beginning to advanced drawing, even if you think you're no good at it, and provide you quite a lot of fun in the process if you have a passion for it. I've been an art hobbyist since 10.

I want to help students understand that they can take charge of their education and learn whatever they want to with some effort and stretching of the mind.
