In 2006, I began my teaching career as an art teacher and administrator at an arts program for adults with developmental disabilities. After many years in this field I went back to school for my Master's with an eye on teaching art at the college level. I started tutoring with Wyzant at the beginning of grad school and received my MFA in 2018.

Developing from my experience working with a variety of people with differing learning styles, my teaching style is very focused on the individual I a...

At first we were reluctant about online classes for our special needs daughter because focusing is hard for her. Karim has been an awesome teacher, so knowledgeable and patient. Our daughter is always excited about her classes, she says that she learns so many new and great days to express herself though the art. Thank you so much, Karim, it has been a great experience for the whole family! Highly recommended!

Karim makes the drawing lessons interesting and fun. He introduces new techniques in every lesson and builds up skills.
- Gigi G. from Alexandria, VA
Karim is a really good teacher. Each lesson has been very interesting. 60 minutes go fast by for an eight year old, and that itself is a huge accomplishment. He keeps the lessons fun and deeps into the creativity and imagination of my kid.

Karim was very helpful, a great communicator, and a kind teacher. I really enjoyed my lesson and got a lot out of it. So excited to put into practice what I learned!
- Damen E. from Jarbidge, NV
Karim educated my daughter and was patient and nimble based on her personality and reactions. They created a wonderful book of drawings that told a story and my daughter was so proud. We look forward to working with Karim!
- Julie P. from Cambridge, MA
I would one hundred precent recommend Karim. He is very helpful and gives great advice and ideas for art works. I learned so much more about art and I really couldn't have finished my art portfolio without his help.
- Olivia K. from Diamond Bar, CA
I highly recommend Karim. He is creative, engaging, and knows so much about how and what to teach. My 13 year old son loves taking lessons from him! He comes prepared for every lesson and builds upon what was taught in the previous session.

This was our first time meeting. I have found it is best for me to explain the various photography interests I have and important to know what my tutor's projects/passion is. I was working with Karim on a purple Advent photo with a glass ornament and a candle. In the past I had a tutor who was more "hands on" so I watched how edit something but didn't remember how because I didn't do it. Karim encouraged me to design the project myself. It's very exciting that he understood what the meaning behind my image is. I have not had a tutor who allowed that before. I look forward to learning how the tools work, how to apply them to my own photos.

He has been helping my kid who is 11 to explore and try multiple drawing techniques. He's always looking forward to his next lessons with Karim. He's always punctual and flexible with schedules.
- Jamie S. from La Canada Flintridge, CA
Karim works virtually with my 16 yo son doing exploratory art. He help him catch up after starting late in the class. Always sends message about what they worked on.
- Alexandra G. from Santa Ana, CA
Karim is intentional about his online lessons and sends a summary of what was reviewed afterwards which is great. He also provides homework as a means of further practice.
- Louisa A. from Houston, TX
Karim patiently explaining new techniques, gives simple yet great to build skills homework and follows a course from class to class. Very rewarding to see my 10 yo progressing and enjoying her art.
- Yelena B. from San Jose, CA
I had an initial session with Karim. I liked how he gave me ideas of how to start off a drawing using colored pencils. He told me how it would be different if we had used oil or acrylic. He took his time with me.
- Ron M. from Rochester, NY
Karim has been teaching art to my homeschooled high schooler for the past few months. He is always patient, kind, flexible, personable, and a good communicator. My son really looks forward to and enjoys his lessons with Karim. He has great outside-the-box ideas for each lesson that keep my son interested, motivated and engaged. Together, they do fun drawing exercises (both on paper and digital), as Karim offers new ways of looking at things. He provides excellent instruction with valuable tips and suggestions. We highly recommend him!
- Jeanine Z. from Chappaqua, NY
I learned a few new tips in Adobe Illustrator. Karim, as always, is patient and helpful. He knows his subject matter well and easily breaks things down for people like me who know very little about Adobe Illustrator and Publisher. Will definitely hire again.
