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

I have 20 years of experience as a publications designer and editor, using InDesign and its legacy programs PageMaker and Quark. I have designed and laid out commercial and educational books, brochures, newsletters, programs, posters, cards, reports, art prints, and other types of publications, and I love to teach others to do the same. 

I advised student publications (newspapers, yearbooks and literary arts magazines) at the middle and high school level for 14 years, and have taught hundreds of people of all ages how to use InDesign and Photoshop. I am certified "highly qualified" in art, and currently teach digital photography at Air Academy High School. Many of my students over the years have won awards for their work, and gone on to study graphic design in college and/ or pursue careers in publications. 

Adobe Photoshop

I have 20 years of experience as a photographer, photojournalist, and photography teacher. I advised student publications at the middle and high school level for 14 years, and have taught hundreds of students how to use Photoshop and In Design. I am certified "highly qualified" in Art, and currently teach digital photography at Air Academy High School. Many of my photo students over the years have gone on to study photography in college and/ or pursue careers in photography. I also continue to shoot and publish my own photography. I enjoy helping people discover their own photographic talents, and Photoshop helps bring out the best in anyone's photos.

Photography

I have been a photographer for thirty years, and have worked as a professional photojournalist, portrait and event photographer. I have taught photojournalism and photography to middle school, high school, and adult students. I am currently teaching digital photography at Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs and am certified "highly qualified" in art. I possess a true passion for photography and love to help people express themselves through their photos. I also teach Photoshop and InDesign.
