I am a traditionally trained graphic designer, photographer and marketer with 29 years experience. I have worked with small privately owned businesses to large corporations including: TaylorMade Adidas Golf, CB Richard Ellis Commercial Real Estate, The Sundance Film Festival, The Sundance Institute, The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Steamboat Ski Resort and Raymond J. Lucia Wealth Management.

I approach teaching/tutoring the same way I was taught, by teaching the underlying principles, theories and techniques involved. Then providing attainable assignments that require students to practice those techniques and principles on real projects. I like to keep students interested and to enjoy their learning by presenting them with challenges that required them to build on their existing knowledge. I help them focus on each level of improvement, not solely the achievement of one large goal.

For the past 19 years, I have been teaching in Spanish as well as English. For this entire time I have served as full time volunteer providing in-home Spanish instruction as well as regular public speaking assignments in Spanish.

I believe in quality education and want my students completely satisfied with what they are learning. So I regularly ask for feedback, and if a student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring I will not charge for that lesson. I do my best to have a flexible schedule and while I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.

I am available on location, at your home, or remotely online. I look forward to helping you have fun and success in your educational pursuits.

Adobe InDesign

I have been designing for print layout since 1982 and have used InDesign on a professional level since it's release in 1999. My teaching style is to help students learn the principles of visual communication and page layout, not just how to manipulate software. My professional experience with InDesign includes advertising, branding, marketing communication, catalogs, and digital publication layout with Digital Publishing Suite.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been a Photoshop user for 24 years, as both a professional photographer and graphic designer. I regularly use Photoshop for images used in Catalogs, Advertising, MARCOM, Fine Art, Web and Digital Publishing

Graphic Design

I am a traditionally trained graphic designer and photographer. My formal visual/graphic design education began when I was in the 7th grade and continued until graduation 6 years later. Over half of my daily formal curriculum was spent in studying visual arts. I have been working professionally in the communication arts business for the past 29 years, during which I have formally taught dozens of seminars, provided one-on-one tutoring and consulted professionally for numerous companies.

My teaching method focuses on the principals of design, not simply the manipulation of computer software. So my tutoring method focusing on putting the principles to work in real life and learning how to create visual designs before sitting down in front of a computer.

Macintosh

I have been a daily Apple Macintosh user since the release of the IIgs in 1986. During that time I have worked on hundreds of different Mac computers and have in turn taught dozens of clients to not only use the Mac in their businesses and personal lives, but to maintain and service them as well.

I look forward to helping you discover the joy of using the Macintosh for either personal creativity via software like iPhone and iMovie or business productivity with software like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premier Pro and the like.

Photography

I am a formally trained photographer, having studied all aspects of photography from grades 7 through 12 as a specialized school where visual communication arts consisted of 50% of my curriculum for six years. I studied studio photography and lighting with large format equipment, as well as editorial style with 35mm equipment. I also did intensive darkroom work, developing all my own B&W and color films and transparencies and print work.

I have worked as a professional photographer and graphic designer since 1985, beginning while still in high school as a wedding and event photographer. Since then my focus has shifted to landscape, wildlife, jewelry, product, event, architectural, and vacation rental photography.

I have tutored numerous students in photography over the years, mostly with a focus on landscape and wildlife.

Super Helpful Jerry helped me with several things when I had my tutoring session. He was very clear with letting me know how things worked from Lightroom to Excel programming. I am definitely going to give him a call again. Thanks, Jerry! ...
