 I'm Ms. Riot, a creative teacher (certified, qualified and experienced) from London, England. My teaching adventure began at university with the completion of my 4-year degree (Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Primary Education) back in 2007. 

In the UK, we achieve our QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) through additional exams and proven experience which I also achieved in 2007. My dissertation allowed me to carry out research into how we can motivate young learners to want to read more.  I completed one of my student teaching placements in Arizona, USA and I worked as the Literacy Lead for two summers at a not-for-profit camp in New York, USA.

As an elementary classroom teacher, I developed creative classrooms where students felt safe enough to fail. My passion for reading also allowed me to develop a new career as a high school librarian, teaching reading lessons across the school. I have also taught students English up to the age of 16 at a prestigious online school.

More recently, I have worked within the learning department in a large museum, teaching at a range of online schools and designing curriculum for education resource companies. I also deliver lectures to trainee teachers.

At the heart of my teaching philosophy lies a belief that learning should be an adventure, sprinkled with curiosity and laughter. We can be serious about learning without it always being too serious. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
There is no formal assessment in these classes. However I am more than happy to look at uploaded work and identify areas of strength. If your learner would like suggestions for development, I can provide those too.
Grades Offered
Learners will need watercolor paints, a range of brushes and watercolor paper. Painting on standard/regular paper can be very disheartening when using watercolor paints. It is crucial that watercolor paper is used. 
Watercolor paint palette. An empty palette (or the lid of the paint palette). Watercolor paper. Brushes (including small and thin ones). Sponge (or paper towel/toilet paper). Pencil. Eraser. In lesson 3 they should have a black ball point pen, or pencil.
