Hi, my name is Alice, and I'm a credentialed teacher with more than 24 years' experience teaching in the classroom. I get great results with all students at all levels, whether it be junior high, high, or college level. I have a passion for learning and carry this enthusiasm into my teaching. Your success is what this is all about! I am a credentialed teacher in Computer Graphics and Printing Occupations, and am currently obtaining a Masters of Digital Cinematography, so my main emphasis is the creative realm of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, Flash, Final Cut Pro, and similar software. I have created and maintain several blogs and websites, so I can help you with your web page or blog page. I have my bachelors degree in drawing and painting and teach fine arts as wel. I work as a Graphic Designer, Videographer and do fine art Painting in my non-teaching time.

I've been teaching keyboarding, and the whole Microsoft Office Suite for more than 15 years as part of my job of monitoring a university computer lab, so I am well versed in those subjects as well. Additionally, I have also taught Natural Science; math, physics and chemistry. Math, science and English come very easily for me. I received advanced placement in college in Math and English based on my SAT scores. You could say that I'm the Jack of All Trades, and master of them all. I believe patience, and persistence are key to understanding a subject, and I will therefore be very patient with you. I break the subject down into small pieces that are easy to grasp, and cater to your preferred learning style.

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 Flash

I teach Adobe Flash as part of the Digital Media and Dreamweaver classes that I teach at the college level, and have taught Flash at the high school level as well. I use it at home for my own video and web projects. It's a lot of fun!

Adobe InDesign

I have been using InDesign since it's first beta version, and even before when it was called PageMaker. I've been using it for more than 24 years! I work as a graphic designer as well as a teacher, and InDesign is a very valuable software tool for the flyers, brochures, ads, and catalogs that I have to make for work. You can even include hyperlinks, and do a little web page design in InDesign, and design for mobile devices in InDesign, which I have shown all my students how to do. I really enjoy using InDesign, it makes layout and design for print and web so easy to do, and you get very quick results!

Desktop Publishing

I have worked in the industry as a desktop publisher for more than 12 years. I'm well versed in Photoshop and all the Adobe Creative Suite programs, and always make it my business to learn new software and current advertising trends. I'm a member of several graphic design groups including Photoshop, and am a member of two WordPress clubs. I manage three blogs, having created them and built the content. I'm a credentialed instructor in graphics occupations and have taught for more than 20 years. I'm a very patient individual and break the information down into quite learnable portions.

Drawing

I have my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts; Drawing and Painting. I love teaching art, and have been teaching it for more than 20 years. My artwork is in public and private collections throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. I excel at drawing and have many tips to give on the subject.

Graphic Design

I have more than 15 years of experience working as a graphic designer; designing logos and mastheads, creating illustrations, photographing products, digitizing images, and doing layout and design of catalogs, magazines, and newsletters, as well as other various pop and graphic design products.

I am well versed in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, iMovie, Premiere, and Final Cut Pro.

I have worked in various companies in LA and Orange county, ranging from the textile and garment industry, to law firms, public relation firms, design studios, magazine departments, Disney TV Cast studio, as well as other TV and video departments.

Macintosh

I have been educated on Macintosh computers since 1988, and currently teach in two large Macintosh labs. I teach the system software, and settings, Photoshop, Illustrator, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Access, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Dreamweaver, Flash, iShowU, Contribute, iPhoto and other subjects as necessary.

Microsoft Publisher

I have taught Microsoft Publisher for 15 years in a computer lab, and as part of a teacher led workshop. I'm great at troubleshooting and with my experience as a graphic artist, I can really help you make your publishing project look great!

Painting

I have my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts; Drawing & Painting from Cal State Long Beach. I have paintings in public and private collections throughout Los Angeles and Orange County, and have won numerous awards for my paintings. My chosen mediums are watercolor and acrylics.

Photography

I have been a serious photographer since my early teens. I'm a credentialed instructor who has taught for more than 24 years. The courses I have taught include How to use your digital camera, featuring the digital SLR's such as the Canon 50D, 60D and 70D cameras. I'm in the process of completing a masters degree in Digital Cinematography, which has included a lot of work with digital cameras.

Sewing

I have been sewing since I was a teen. I have constructed all sorts of items from hats and other accessories, to suits, dresses, vests, pants, tailored shirts, and you name it! There are many tips and tricks to making your garment or accessory look professionally made.

Swimming

I'm a natural in the water, and was part of a synchronized swim team. Our coach was highly ranked, and I did exceptionally well. I can teach all the basics; how to tread water, float, dog paddle, do the crawl, the side stroke, back stroke, and the breast stroke.

Video Production

I'm obtaining my Master's Degree in Digital Cinematography, and have sunk hours into video production. I'm accustomed to pulling together a film crew, managing and overseeing the job as a director, or assistant director, or as the eye...the camera man. Previously, I ran a broadcast team and sent people out on assignments, managed their stories, helped with lighting and studio setup, as well as audio, and even edited the final piece on the timeline.

Web Design

I have taught intermediate and advanced Dreamweaver classes, working with HTML and cascading style sheets to create and modify web pages. I can also show a person how to make a web page from inside Photoshop, as well as making it from scratch in HTML. Today, a lot of people are making WordPress webpages or other free web pages. I would be glad to show you how to do that as well. I have several blog pages going in Word Press.
