I like to make sure that the student is relaxed and confident in what they produce. Art should be about self-expression, non-judgmental and creativity. Artistic skills can be taught and the inner artist should be free to come out naturally.
I am a Fine Arts graduate from OCAD University in Toronto and enjoy traveling and visiting galleries around the world. I have taught in multiple art camps focused soley on painting and scultpture and am currently teaching in the Richmond School District.
I have a cancellation policy of the price of the lesson.
Danica and I worked together as facilitators/docents at an exhibit geared towards children and school groups held at the year-round building for the Toronto International Film Festival. The job involved leading school groups on tours and expounding the educational aspects of the artistic/technological installations. Danica was consistently able to find new ways to explore an installation, in a way that would thoroughly engage visitors young and old. She also always went the extra mile in her research about said exhibits, whether practically perfecting how to use an installation or offering further insight based on what she'd learned about the artist who created it.
Danica is friendly, thoughtful, and a creative thinker. I've seen her easily hold the attention of and engage large groups of children or teenagers in situations where they could easily become distracted -- I'm not sure exactly how! But it's probably got something to do with how observant and adaptable she is, how she can easily relate to someone one on one, while at the same able to stay true to herself and maintain confidence in her abilities, all qualities that lend her to a leadership/mentorship role.
Danica is punctual, responsible, and thorough in her work. She would offer to take on tasks that might challenge other facilitators (a tricky to use coding app for example or handling a difficult customer service situation) because she's not just a team player but also a fiercely hard worker. She is also an amazing artist, a great writer, and is open-minded and curious about learning in general. Couldn't wish for a better teacher!
I worked with Danica at TIFF and she is an engaging teacher that kids love. She is creative, energetic, and able to make lessons fun for people of any age. She also works well with in a team and is great at sharing her knowledge with her peers.
Best teacher ever!
She has quite a lot of experience with teaching languages and she is very patient. Always smiling and in a good mood, learning is so much easier!
She was very great and helped me a lot to improve my English. Thank you Danica!
Danica was a really popular English teacher in Japan. Working with her at ECC in Okazaki City was a pleasure. She's intelligent, fun, well-organized, friendly and hardworking. Her interest in art, nature, places and people makes her a truly engaging conversationalist.
Danica is a thoughtful individual; she is hardworking, encouraging and passionate about her work.
I worked with Danica recently at TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival) in my capacity as coordinator of their digiPlaySpace exhibit, a series of educational installations combining technology and art in a way for kids to learn through play. Danica worked as a facilitator, explaining these various installations and leading school groups in tours of the space during weekdays. Danica was definitely one of our strongest facilitators. I would often give her groups I thought might be more difficult because I knew she had the perfect skill set to both keep control of more rowdy and excitable children while still making the entire experience a positive one. She was a great team player, always helping out other facilitators where needed and constantly maintaining a high level of professionalism and positive energy. I cannot recommend Danica enough and would be happy to answer any follow up questions if they arise.
Danica has helped me in my academic career for over 13 years. Danica is one of the most passionate, kind, motivating and fun teachers I have ever worked with. she will help you complete any assignment and answer any question to the absolute best of your abilities. I seriously recommend you trust Danica to help you complete any task given to you, I guarantee a 90 with the help of this amazing teacher!
I've worked with Danica for a little under a year during my stay in Nagoya, Japan. She's not only bright, encouraging and motivating and helpful, but always goes above and beyond what she's asked for. She has the drive to improve herself and others around her, and is also adaptable to her students' needs depending on their level of English or the environment they come from.
Danica makes sure that every child matters. She listens attentively and plans her sessions in order to include all children's needs. Children are set for success. They feel safe and thrive in all aspects of education. Danica's lessons are not only innovative but also challenging and entertaining. She puts her whole heart into teaching. You will be very lucky to have her as teacher.
I worked with Danica last year and was blown away. Her discipline and dedication to her craft was unprecedented. She would always show up early so she could prepare for her classes and take extra time out of her day to assist the school staff with organizing and decorating the school. But she didn't stop there, she was known to be super patient with her students and gave each and every one of them the attention they needed. Right from the beginning, you could tell that she was one of those people that was destined to be a teacher. By far, Danica was the best teacher I have ever had the pleasure to work with :)
