I have always enjoyed passing knowledge onto others watching them grow and become inspired from it. I have worked with all ages from preschool to adult and find passion in teaching all types of subjects. At The Art Institute I taught a class rigging basics for biped (human-like) 3D models for one hour. I received amazing compliments from students and instructor. I was astonished from the impression I made and knew I would always keep teaching apart of my life. It is one thing that really makes me happy.

I graduated from The Art Institute of San Francisco, California and hold two degrees one in 3D Animation and the other in Game Art. I have worked with many art, video and music based programs, but my specific expertise is with Autodesk Maya and Adobe Photoshop.

My method of teaching is not complex. Work individually on each persons level to accommodate needs, wants and most of all cares. It is important for me to find what motivates the student and help keep passions alive. Critiquing benefits everyone to help improve skills and also encourage inspiration. I'm kind, patient, respectful and a good listener with everyone I meet. I am learning with every experience I receive to grow and further my education in teaching.

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 Photoshop

Logos, textures for games, posters and so much more can all be made with Photoshop. I use the professional Photoshop Creative Suite (CS) version and not the generic Elements version because of Elements lack of options and layout. I use CS mostly for high quality textures and normal maps for 3D models, but also have created newsletters, logos, posters and flyers for all types of projects. I know about every tool and option you need to finish any project. Imagination becomes the limit.

General Computer

Understanding PC computers can be challenging for most beginners. I will show good organizing skills and ways to prepare important files for backup. Browse, install/uninstall programs, clean the operating systems and gain an overall understanding of what computers can do for you. My experience in Microsoft Windows goes back to Win95. I am up to date and have experience with the newest OS Windows 7.

Maya

Maya is an advanced 3D design program used for some of the top video games and movies. I use this software mostly for game models. My knowledge of this program is extensive. I know polygonal modeling, unwrapping for texturing, lighting and most all other tools for animating, rigging and special effects. Building 3D objects from scratch is extremely fun and very intensive. I can help improve your skills and ignite your passions in 3D art.
