Monica's Teaching Strategy:


  • Start from the ground up: She first starts with basic training, making sure students know how to sketch, replicate shapes, shade, while also teaching concepts such as symmetry, proportion and spacial awareness.

  • Teaching on an individual level: Monica is quickly able to build a relationship with each student. She tailors her teaching pace to that of her students' abilities and after learning the basics, tailors her subject matter to that of her students' interests.

  • Keeping things positive: Monica believes picking up on each unique child's sense of humor is key to being able to keep them focused, motivated and having fun!

  • Earning trust: Monica's students look to her for her complete, honest opinions because they trust that following her direction will help them to improve and grow.

  •  Lessons are mobile to residents of Rancho Cucamonga (come to your home) or you can come to her studio instead.
