I have a B.A. in Media Communications from Northern Illinois University where I also minored in English. English has always been my strong point in school so I am very knowledgeable on the subject. I also have a B.F.A. in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics. Through the years I have developed my knowledge of Adobe products such as Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere. I have had several classes in video production, using Final Cut and Premiere as well as the audio program ProTools. I am very confident in my knowledge of the above.
I have also played sports since I was a kid, as well as worked at a YMCA in the sports department for 2 years. I coached and refereed several youth soccer and football games in my time there.
I have found that I can develop a teaching method on an individual basis, as some learn differently than others. I am able to identify which path would fit a person and can simplify difficult areas to make them easier to learn.
I played basketball from 5th grade to 10th grade and was a student assistant coach for the sophomore team and team manager for JV/varsity my junior year.
The skills I am comfortable teaching/tutoring:
Dribbling. Shooting. Passing. How to guard your opponent. Fouls and basic rules for those interested in learning the sport or improving their skills.
Help with transitioning from PC to Mac or vice versa.
Setting up emails/using the internet. Customizing the workspace. Learn quick and easy ways to do certain tasks on the computer (ie. Quick Keys, Hot corners, etc.)
I have used Macintosh computers for over 15 years as they have evolved from the days of floppy disks. I have two Mac laptops of my own. Growing up, Mac was the only computer in our household, still is. I can troubleshoot a lot of issues people have, as well as help PC users transition to the Mac platform. I have worked on many different types of Macs such as: Macbooks, iMacs, PowerBooks, and iPads. I've used these computers for every day use (word processing, setting up folders, applications, etc.) as well as creative use (video production, graphic design). I know and can teach several of the shortcuts to make using this platform easier for any user.
I played softball from age 7 to 17 during the summer, as well as during Jr. High School.
As a tutor, I will teach all ages; from those who are just starting out to anyone you may want to develop their skills.
Breaking down a word to learn it better. May be mixed in with grammar to learn the difference between similar sounding words.
Teaching the basics of editing, organizing and importing files. How to set up a project based on the footage being used. The differences in exporting and what is optimal for the intended use. Learning how to enhance footage via freeze frames, color corrections, fades, and other effects, as necessary.
I have worked in video editing (school and career) for over 5 years.
