My name is Monica and I was born and raised in Mexico, City. I studied to be an elementary teacher- English Teacher as a Second Language. I also went to the University to study Graphic Artist. I graduated and achieve my Bachelors Degree. I also worked as a teacher in Mexico for 4 years.

I came to America 16 years ago and the first year I obtained my Masters in Web Graphic Master to create websites. I worked as a graphic designer in my own studio for a while. I also have taught Spanish in Pre-K in San Mateo, CA, where I previously lived.

I am working right now as an Art/Spanish Teacher for k-6 grade. My experience in teaching is vast from teaching 4-21 year olds. I also gave some technical documentation training for a company in Mexico, City.

I am also experienced in the use of the internet, I am proficient in Adobe CS programs, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Free-hand, Dreamweaver, Flash, InDesign, to mention a few. I can work in Pc and Apple.

My methodology combines a variety of developmentally-appropriate activities where you can learn. In Spanish I have my own methodology where students can actually learn and remember, not only by repeating, but by teaching in ways that students can actually remember.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe InDesign

I am an experienced graphic designer with over 20+ years in editorial design.

I had done 3 book cover designs and one CD cover design made in InDesign.

I had done posters and brochures using InDesign and Page Maker. Page Maker was the first Adobe software for editorial design in the 1990's. The first In-Design software was release in 2000. I was fortunate enough to do the transition from the first version to InDesign and I continue to use it - a lot!

Dreamweaver

I have 13 years in creating and designing websites. My first experience with Dreamweaver was when it was still owned by Macromedia.
Dreamweaver is a fun and easy software to create websites and website templates. With its FTP function, it makes it very easy to update your website.
What I love about Dreamweaver is that you can easily design sites and check the html code, fix the meta tags, the name and description for the SEO. It also helps you integrate videos and pictures with ease.

Graphic Design

Studied Graphic Design at the Anahuac University in Mexico City and got my bachelors degree in 1991.

I have more than 20 years of experience in graphic design. If you ask me what can I do, I can tell you everything! from business cards, logos, stationery, letterheads, brochures, flyers, book covers, book interior design, T-shirt design, stamps design, labels, CD cover design, posters, you name it, I'll do it.

Deciding what I like to do more is hard because I love designing, I have discovered that if I am not designing or creating something, I feel bad.

My experience is in PC computers as well as Macs. The software I use mainly is Adobe software and Word.

Many people get discourage with not being able to design anything. My methods are simple: I explain to you step by step and I give you professional tips that have worked for me and shortcuts that can help you with designing.

I taught logo design and signage design for 2 years at my University. It was really fun! I can assist you in understanding what you want to do as well on how to use the elements of design that are so important in graphic design.

Just remember the meaning of color, font, lines, layout need to work together in harmony to provide an effective message. Your message.

Microsoft Publisher

I have 17 years of using Microsoft Publisher. In my 20+ years as a graphic web designer I have used Microsoft Publisher.

What I like of Microsoft Publisher is that it makes it so accessible to anyone to design anything. If you don't know how to use Adobe InDesign, then Microsoft Publisher is the right program for you.

My first experience in 1998 with Microsoft Publisher is when I had just moved to this country and I didn't have my precious Adobe software. Learning Microsoft Publisher was so easy that I was designing anything!

Microsoft Publisher is an easy software to do brochures, posters, flyers, business cards and more. It's not complicated to understand. It gives you flexibility and most of all guides you hand in hand to create the basic things in minutes.

Microsoft Publisher is used by any type of business.

My teaching method is simple, I guide my students step by step to understand the menus and to learn and know how easy is to use the program. I also give them 1 item to do, The companies what they like to do is to create flyers, or brochures, so I help them understand and go through the menus so they can create all what they need to do for their company.

Painting

I am an experienced graphic artist with 4 years of intensive learning of all techniques in the most prestigious university in Mexico, the Anahuac University.

I am a Highly Qualified art teacher with 6 years of experience in art, right now teaching from k-6th grade in Calibre Academy of Glendale. I also have taught 2 years at university level.

I am able to sketch with color pencil, ink, and shading. I have mastered color pencil media technique, water color media technique, air brush media technique, oil pastel media technique, acrylic media technique, batik, textile painting, and screen process. My favorite is mixed media technique.

I have experience with any type of paper and I can easily identify which paper is best for what type of media.

My favorite style is realistic where you have the challenge to actually learn an apply how to use the colors and to realize that what we see has more than one color combination.

I also like modern, abstract, impressionism art where you can self express your emotions through the use of the principles of art which are: line, color, shape, and texture. You can really create amazing works of art with just using simple things.

Web Design

I have a master's in web design, and my experience in web design goes from designing and creating the templates and the sites to SEO.
I have 14 years of experience in web design. And I have done numerous sites in Dreamweaver and now in Wordpress.
