In addition to doing freelance graphic design for over 12 years (and utilizing and constantly retraining on the required software, which I teach) I have taught at Briarcliffe College (a division of Career Education Corp.) in Bethpage NY from 2001 - 2005, at which time I moved to Florida. I have taught at both Palm Beach State College in their Learning Unlimited and Continuing and Corporate Ed programs since 2009, and for the School District of Palm Beach County in its Adult and Community Ed program since 2010. In addition, I have many private students whom I tutor at their place of business or residence.
I generally teach graphics applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, etc., and also general computer instruction.
One of the cornerstones of my classes is my belief that they must be tailored to the needs and goals of the students. Many adults come to these classes with tremendous variation in their experience and skills; it is my primary job to first ascertain what my students need and how best to proceed to attain their goals.
I strive to promote a low pressure and welcoming atmosphere, geared to the needs and goals of adult students. I use discussions, demonstrations, videos, hand outs, and other materials to demystify Photoshop and other software to help students to discover its endless creative possibilities for business and personal expression.
