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 Illustrator

I have created award-winning illustrations in the automotive industry. I create highly complex illustrations in Adobe Illustrator. I taught Illustrator at an Art & Design college for a number of years. I have a deep passion for teaching, and have years of experience with students of all ages.

Adobe InDesign

I have been using InDesign to create stunning layouts for print. In recent years it has become a powerful design tool for developing interactive documents.
As a freelance graphic designer for over 10 years, I have created documents and layouts for clients like Kia Motors, FOX Reality Channel, PLAY! Educational Studio, and more.
I have also taught in the Animation & Graphic Design departments at an art college for a number of years, helping students of all levels to achieve their professional goals.

Adobe Photoshop

I have taught both beginner and advanced Adobe Photoshop at the college level. I have also used Photoshop on a daily basis for the past 13 years. I use Photoshop as a freelance graphic artist for image manipulation, building files to import into other software, & for various design projects.

Drawing

I am an award-winning illustrator. I have created drawings and illustrations for a wide range of clientele. I am academically trained in fine art using several drawing and painting media. I have taken these skills into the digital realm where I now produce digital illustrations and computer animation for high profile clients. I have years of experience teaching drawing, animation, and illustration to students of all ages. I have a passion and a drive to help you reach your goals.

Web Design

I have experience in Content Management Systems (CMS) like WordPress. Using systems like these, require skills in HTML and CSS. WordPress is a great system which lowers the initial learning curve, and yet allows for unlimited customization. This is a wonderful tool for beginning Web Design students.

Often after creating WordPress sites, my clients have asked for tutoring in order to maintain their own sites. With the right learning and skills, this is a great way to manage your own online content.
