I'm an experienced teacher with patience and a promise to help those who want to learn. I've worked in the Web and Graphic design industry for a few years and I've always loved teaching others. I'm available to help with building web pages using HTML
if you're looking to touch up photos or make a logo. I'm also an experienced Microsoft Excel
teacher for those who want to ramp up their spreadsheeting skills. Or, if you're just looking for general computer language
training, I'm very good at helping bridge the gap between human and machine.
In the past I've taught or helped teach design classes at the Art
Institute and at AcademyX in San Francisco. I've mostly worked with college level adults in small classes of 2-10 people. I like small classes because I love to be able to work one-on-one with my students and address their specific needs and concerns. I like when my students are driven by a project or have ideas in mind of what they'd like to create. The best way to make beautiful design is via the drive to make it. The adage that design is "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration" holds true in my experience. If you want to do something great you have to work hard at it. And sometimes, to get over that hump you need some help, and that's where I come in. I can help you take your ideas and work them, step by step, into beautiful designs.
When I was younger, I worked in tech support for Lockheed Martin. Quite literally helping rocket scientists fix their computers. I've always had a knack for solving problems. I take each problem step by step. Each step making sure that I am getting the best possible answer. This has translated into making me a great teacher, when people struggle with problems I can help them break the problem down into small steps to get the best possible answer. I'm very easy to work with, and talk to, very communicative and understanding, and I'm willing to put in the time it takes to help you really learn something even if it appears impossible.
Hope to hear from you soon.
