Hi, my name is Lindsay, and I'm fresh and new, like an overnight paint job on Extreme Home Makeover from Interior Design School (a recent graduate from Harrington College of Design to be exact), where I took Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and a couple of hands worth of industry-standard rendering and drafting programs: AutoCAD, Sketchup, Sketchup-Podium,(think 3D Studio Max images only in cosmic time)!
My proficiency in the entire Adobe Suite Software on a scale from 1-5, 5 being the highest, is a solid 4.5 because I can teach such things as perspectives, clipping masks, methods to create logos,font creation, advertisement layout styles, simple photo/image correcting skills with the burn, spot-healing brush, and the stamp tool to name a few.
In our lessons, it's best to see where your skills stand at before I dive into the lessons so I can place more focus on the areas that you will need for your professional and scholar endeavors! I am very flexible with hours and lessons after we go over the core tools.
I lived and studied abroad in Besancon, France where I went to fulfill my Bachelor's in French Linguistics (Le Centre Linguitique Applique to be exact). While there, I took phonetics, grammar, and cultural courses. Upon arriving back Stateside, I immersed myself in French literature courses while extending my vocabulary with more grammar courses. My proficiency level on a scale from 1-5, 5 being the highest, is a 4 since I am fluent and can create multiple sentences with the same meaning, have a thorough understanding for sentence structures, and can handle speaking to native speakers quite well.
I also have excelled while taking private lessons in Piano as a child. I was awarded "Student of the Month" on several occasions, and have expertise in; jazz, classical, pop hits, and Christmas ensembles. I have taken lessons from level one through level eight. Recently, I enjoy teaching myself new Christmas mixes as well as rockin' Pop Hits. I'd love to teach you some of your favorite kinds of music too!
If you have any questions when making your tutor decision, don't hesitate to contact me and fire away at your interview questions!
I look forward to meeting you and hearing about why you chose a tutor in French, Interior Design, or Piano!
All the Best,
