I have a deep passion for graphic design and a lot of experience in design software programs like Ilustrator, PhotoShop, Flash, and InDesign. I have created many flyers, a website for a trucking company, exhibited five animations using Flash, and won third place for a commercial competition in which I used PhotoShop, Flash, and Premiere to name a few.
When I took classes in graphic design at East Los Angeles College to update my skills, having known Illustrator and PhotoShop prior, many students would come to me for help. This prompted me to be part of a tutoring program where I could help students with their homework in graphic design.
I know that learning a new program can take time. I am very patient and I'm willing to help you learn these programs. I am very flexible with schedules, and I will be more than happy to transfer my knowledge and skills to you.

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 learned Adobe Flash at E.L.A.College and on my own. I became fascinated with the program to an extent that I helped my teacher figure out how to stop an animation from repeating itself. I still use Flash from time to time.

Drawing

I have knowledge of "basic" structure needed to get started in making a drawing. I have learned numerous techniques and short cuts, which are vital to making a successful drawing, from Los Angeles county High School for the Arts and Otis College Of Art and Design. I have exhibited and sold drawings using very advanced techniques that go beyond what an artist knows but drawing.
