I am currently employed and a student at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Because I am a student (in my last year of school), I have knowledge of the most current web and graphic design trends and reflect that in my work and tutoring methods. I tutor various subjects such as HTML, CSS, Basic Javascript/jQuery, PHP, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash and After Effects. I also tutor non-design related subjects like computer skills, Microsoft Word, and more. My main focus is on graphic and web design. I know how to code by hand and also how to make a website visually appealing. I have a cumulative GPA of 3.9, perfect attendance, and am employed as a web design tutor at the school.

I take my craft seriously and try to stay up to date on the most current and semantic methods of designing and coding. I am a perfectionist at everything I do, so when tutoring, I want my teaching skills to come across as clearly and as best as possible. I try to break down the seemingly complicated nature of web design and refrain from moving on too fast unless my student understands. I find tutoring very rewarding and a great networking opportunity.

Please let me know if you are interested and I will be happy to get started in assisting your needs.

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 Flash

I have been using Flash for about three years. I am experienced with creating animations, making interactive animations, and manipulating ActionScript (the scripting language used for Flash). Flash has the benefit of being interactive (useful for websites with buttons or games) however more animations and visual effects are accomplished using After Effects which I am also familiar with.

Dreamweaver

I have been using Dreamweaver for four years. I am familiar with the software shortcuts for inputting different site elements and very proficient with hand coding as well. I have a good eye for small details so troubleshooting and noticing mistakes within the code is no problem. I am very familiar with HTML5 and CSS3. I also have general knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, and jQuery. I am very organized with my code and try to teach the same semantic practices with my students. I have been tutoring Dreamweaver for two years.

PHP

I have experience using PHP not only to build websites but to make them interactive with the server. I can design contact forms using HTML, CSS, and PHP. I have built websites using various IDE sites such as Nitrous and Cloud 9 which make building PHP based webpages a lot more efficient. I have also built sites using Expression Engine which is a content management system.

Web Design

I have been learning web design for nine years and been tutoring for two years. I am well versed in HTML5, CSS and CSS3. Not only am I experienced with coding from scratch but also with using various web design programs such as Dreamweaver and online IDEs such as Cloud 9. I believe the design of the website is just as important as the functionality and treat every project with an urgency for it to be visually pleasing. I suggest tips to my students so that their sites are more cohesive and look professional. As a web designer, I make an effort to stay up to date on design trends and technological advances.
