Approved subjects are in bold.
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.
In addition to having taught InDesign at the university level, I possess over 18 years of professional experience with page layout applications beginning with PageMaker and QuarkExpress up through the most current version of InDesign CC. Professional projects include the production of brochures, books, advertisements, and digital publications in InDesign. My working methods include, where appropriate, use of paragraph and character styles, multiple master pages, tables, and variable data input from database files. Please let me know if you wish to see example files.
My desktop publishing experience is extensive and includes ApogeeX prepress work flow administration, Preps imposition, and professional layout with all industry-standard tools including InDesign CC. If you need a little brush up on the difference between preparing artwork for web press or sheet fed press, which spot colors can be reasonably approximated by CMYK, ways to maximize your direct mail message while minimizing postage, how to create both print and digital publications from the same master file, or are looking to create bullet-proof files, I can help.
In addition to having taught Drawing at the university level, I possess over 18 years of professional commercial art experience. Professional projects include the production of architectural illustration, portrait drawing, and layout sketches for Art Director approval.

Linux is a open source operating system that shares with Macintosh a Unix heritage. Linux comes in several flavors and my experience includes three of the most common versions: Fedora, Ubuntu, and Arch. In addition, my primary development environment is a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQl, and PHP) stack. In order to administer Linux servers, I have a strong knowledge of shell commands, sometimes called BASH, and can navigate Linux without the help of a GUI interface. That is, I am able to make a Linux box do my bidding with just a black screen and green type. If you would like to learn how to set up a Linux machine of your own or are looking for some troubleshooting help I am happy to help.
For over 18 years, I have used Macintosh computers professionally for both design and application development. In addition to a strong knowledge of shell commands, MAMP stack development environment, and advanced Mac trouble shooting, I have authored several small Mac applications and scripts to make my make my working life more productive. (e.g.: I wrote a program that shows/hides invisible files. This is useful for dealing with system issues.) Please let me know if you wish to see an example program.
In my work as a university professor I often met with struggling students to help them with study skills. We worked on creating time management plans, learning how to skim assignments to understand what information was important to focus on during study, and making best use of resources. Please contact me if there is additional information you need in making your assessment.
Over 18 years of professional experience in design and development qualify me to tutor this subject. I have taught web design seminar at a college level as well as instructed many of the component programs.
