"Hello Students,

Congratulations to you for reaching out for assistance! That's the mark of a truly dedicated and resourceful student! I am an excellent and personable teacher who can not only help you grapple with the sometimes challenging work you'll encounter in Art History classes but I will also help you develop strategies for studying, learning, and retrieving information for exams.

I can't tell--it looks like a bunch of squiggly lines to me!" It's perfectly okay to have an opinion but, in Art History, we're digging much deeper.
