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 Flash at an art institute. I have worked professionally with Flash for 13 years, and have taught many college courses on Flash. I enjoy using Flash for illustration, animation and web projects. I have developed all-Flash projects for companies like Disney, Intuit, Honda and Nissan, to name a few.

Adobe InDesign

I have designed and directed strategic marketing material, such as a 30 page magazine, using InDesign. I have defined not only specific brand style guides, along with individualized logos, but type and color schemes for RGB and CMYK environments. I have designed PSDs, Illustrator and InDesign files for an HTML5-responsive screen environment that also translated over to print templates that imported updated information via xml from the website. I have worked to fuse web and print simply by use of character, object and paragraph styles set for each brand with InDesign and xml-imported specifics for each agent generated on a website. I have also Illustrated print ads for magazine.

Drawing

I have a Fine Art degree from San Francisco State University, and can teach one point, two point and three point perspective, as well as how to bring your drawings into the computer for further illustration.

Dreamweaver

I teach web design at an art institute. We use Dreamweaver quite a bit, and I have many tutorial videos that I have created for my students. I use Dreamweaver professionally for most of my web design jobs.

English

I am a song writer, and creative writing is my top way to get excited about poetry and writing. As a web designer, I am constantly working the business text. With grammatical errors, typos, and other sentence structure issues I have developed superior skills with English. Additionally, I also teach online and in person at Art Institute. There, my students' papers need to be graded. We have to follow MLM style, and I have a keen understanding of how important writing is for my students in their careers. I am also currently writing a science fiction book.

Finally, I have a Master's degree. I had to write a ton of papers to achieve my academic status.

I would love to help you with your writing, and I can teach you in a fun, exciting, poetic but career-focused way!

While students may not care about future careers, and possibly just want to pass a class, I can help them understand the importance and motivate them to sharpen their writing skills.

Video Production

I have developed many videos that include my animations, and also have taught video editing at Platt College and Art Institute. I have been working with video professionally for 13 years. I enjoy using After Effects, Premiere and Final Cut Pro.

Web Design

I have been designing websites for 13 years, and also currently teach web design at an art institute. I have created websites for large corporations, and designed and developed websites and banners for companies such as Intuit, Honda, Weyerhaeuser, Princess Cruises, and more.
