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 have been teaching and tutoring all of Adobe's products for over 15 years, and started using InDesign back when it was still called PageMaker. I regularly use it to make my creative print projects, most recently a book cover. I have taught at least 25 people basic and advanced technics of how to use InDesign for all their design and print needs and have my own syllabus all set up for lessons!

Dreamweaver

Webmaster for several companies, I have been using and teaching Dreamweaver for more than 10 years, even back when it was owned by MacroMedia! I began using the Adobe products in the '90s, was taught the basics of .html in my first webmaster job in 2001, and have used it on many occasions for my clients website, as well as to teach them how to use it. My skills in DMW are beyond those of most people.

Drums

This is specifically West African Percussion - Djembe

Lori I. has been an aficionado of the West African Drum Community for over ten years. She has studied with African drum masters such as Mamady Keita, Bolokada Condé, Mamadou Koné and Dibo Camera.

Through her teachers, she has learned and now instructs about the profound impact of the drum on physical and mental health, as well as about the depths of African Culture.

Lori is a gifted teacher who has been sharing her drumming skills and knowledge with both children and adults for over five years, including private and group lessons, children’s camps and drum circle facilitation.

Lori knows how to bring out the best in people and to work with them to fine-tune their abilities. Her sunny disposition, patience and motivational skills lead adults and children alike to look forward to every percussion lesson as a rewarding and fun experience.

Macintosh

I have been using and teaching Mac computers since they were called Apples! I started teaching people in France when we were installing the first postscript RIP's across the country, before desktop computers even existed. I have been using and teaching Macs for longer than anyone I know and would never use anything else.

The operating system holds no mystery for me, and I excel on elucidating those mysteries for my students!

Web Design

I have been creating and managing websites for my clients for over 10 years. I am proficient in HTML, CSS, Javascript and Wordpress. I have also taught web design classes for in private and at several Parks & Rec classes in Oregon and the Bay Area. I can furnish a list of sites I created if needed.
