My teaching philosophy and method:
I started teaching makeup workshops because it took me years to discover a style that would help me grow in the beauty industry. With my experience, I have discovered what is effective. The way many aspiring makeup artists learn; is basing their knowledge of Social Media, YouTube, etc., and this method will not allow them to grow and build a clientele in a realistic time frame. My curriculum is designed to cover all the topics that will give true results.
I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude and high expectations to the classroom each day. I believe I owe it to my students, as well as the community, to bring consistency, diligence and warmth to my job in the hope that I can ultimately inspire and encourage such traits in my students as well.
My classroom practices are effective because I take into consideration learning styles when I plan my lessons, my teaching method covers techniques for the visual, kinesthetic and auditory learner, my courses are carefully designed to cover all the topics that will give my students a jumpstart in their careers. My classes are divided in three sections: Theory, Demonstration and Practice. I make sure everyone in my class feels comfortable and I track their progress by implementing different types of assessments including verbal & practical assessments.
I believe makeup artistry is career that often is being taken for granted, I want to form professionals that will make a difference. Makeup artists with exceptional work ethics, responsible, dedicated and committed to their crafts, to me this is not only about teaching my students a skill set, is about giving them confidence, encouraging them to always do better, to be an example to their communities.
