, Digital Graphics, Graphic Design, Media Design 1-6 Modules, Illustrator

Other subjects may be added at a later date, Bridge, Fireworks, Premiere, Acrobat,etc. All software application modules will also allow sufficient time for students to create a detailed portfolio of the skills they have learned in that subject so that students may print and an have an electronic version of their portfolio of work they have created during their module training.
After your first session with Ms. Fig, we can discuss any future training you may need at a discounted rate. Also, students who would like to learn an entire module of a training in a specific software application, if prepaid will be dramatically lower in cost. If you are interested in future or more thorough training at a discounted rate, you can discuss with me in detail during our first session.
See the subject descriptions on my profile for specific software application lessons and topics. All Adobe training will include lectures, demonstrations, assigned projects created both as practice and skill reinforcement, QnR of competencies attained, documentation and submission of work, and a quiz. Most of the Adobe courses can also be done electronically through email
and the web if you have all the required software applications for the subject you would like to learn. So that's another option as well, and of course lower in cost. Yay!
Most of my training is for individuals in who would like to learn Media Design to bring their imagination to life in a variety of mediums, including Print, Web and Video production
using Adobe CS3 Master Collection (or any version you may want to learn). I also provide tutoring on general computer
setup in regards to hardware, operating systems, and other equipment including using scanners, printers, and cameras, as well as utilizing effective file management for your system to keep you and your files organized ... this will provide students a good foundation for utilizing all of their hardware to its fullest potential.
