I have a creative background in visual arts and earned my degree in Communication Design, option in Graphic Design. I am very proficient in Adobe Creative Suites, Digital Photography, design concept skills, and basic web design languages. I will use my design background to educate students on the programs necessary to complete projects and on important design rules when they are dealing with a project, whether it be personal project, a class project or for a portfolio to get into college. While in college, I tutored students new to the program, helping them with projects as well as the programs used in the design program.

In the past, teaching sports, my skills fit visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. I make sure to cover all territories to identify which type of learning a student has. It is important to me to make sure I am teaching in the right style in order to get the student the instruction that best fits their learning style. While keeping that in mind, I am a very hands on teacher, and will always talk student through steps as they are completing the task at hand. In creative fields such as design and art, teaching side by side is the most effective way to progress, so students can ask questions and answer problems as they arise.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

InDesign is a great tool for Graphic Designers to create posters, magazines, brochures, etc., layouts for typography based content.

I have taken drawing courses where I have studied using graphite, pen, painting, and charcoal. My experience ranges from realistic portrait drawings, to abstract illusions. I am able to break to objects into shapes and teach individuals fundamental ways to create a drawing using line, volume, textures, shape and form.

I earned my degree in Bachelor of Arts in Communication Design, Option Graphic Design from California State University. I have knowledge in many programs that mainstream Graphic Designers are using today to create digital infographics, posters, websites, mobile app layouts, etc. I will give a student the attention they need to provide the fundamental design skills I have been taught during my education to better improve their technical and creative skills.


I'm experienced using DSLR's in manual mode, understand photography technical skills such as aperture, iso, shutter speed, depth of field, etc. I have taught several individuals how to think on a technical aspect when using manual mode, and how using a light meter.
