I am a recent graduate from Tulane University with my Master's in Architecture, and I love to learn and help others learn! My architectural education has given me a solid base in a wide range of subjects. I have a knack for numbers, and could help with anything from elementary up to junior high math. I am also a computer whiz, especially with Adobe Creative Suites (Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign) as well as general computer skills. I use several advanced computer programs in my work every day. I also have a creative side, and can offer assistance in reading and writing, literature, art, or design.

Overall, I am a passionate, lifetime learner, and love sharing my knowledge with others. While in school I became the go-to person for help with design issues and help with computer programs, and acted as a tutor for my friends and classmates. I have also worked in programs teaching children about architecture. I love seeing other people share the joy of learning and watching the light bulb come on when a concept finally clicks with them. I am patient and self-motivated, and will do everything I can to accomplish my goals. In this case, my goal is helping you or your child learn!

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 InDesign

Part of my education in my Master's of Architecture program revolved around digital media and presentation. I have 5 years of experience with Adobe InDesign. I use this program to create presentation layouts as well as booklets, portfolios, slideshows, and more.

Architecture

I have my Master's degree in architecture from Tulane University. I have taken around a hundred credit hours relating to architecture in courses covering all aspects of architecture. Areas studied included history, theory, philosophy, design, technical systems, building information modeling, digital media, digital fabrication, design-build, and more.

AutoCAD

I have used AutoCAD for almost 6 years in an architectural setting. As an architect in training I use the software daily in the design of floor plans, sections, and elevations of buildings. I am highly proficient in the program and can help people learn to use it easily and efficiently.
