I have 10+ years of experience working with various programs in the Adobe Creative Suite, and have previously tutored individuals in the use of Photoshop and Dreamweaver. As a digital photographer, I use Photoshop (and similar programs such as Adobe Lightroom) on a daily basis, and enjoy teaching others how to use these amazing applications.
I was also a Desktop Publishing instructor for a group of honor students in and after-school program at Cass High School, and I was a Web & Graphic Design instructor for a class at North Metro Technical College (now Chattahoochee Tech.) I also ran the print and document services centers at two OfficeMax stores during the past 5 years.
I prefer a hands-on approach to instruction, letting the student "learn by doing," rather than having them try to memorize information from a book. I find that people absorb and retain skills much more readily when they're actually required to put those skills to use during the learning process. Practical application of the techniques enforces their relevance, and the students typically have a more enjoyable time learning the material if they're actually applying what they've learned, rather than just sitting and listening to a lecture.
