About me: My name is Jim and I'm a Professional Graphic Designer who started my own design business in late 2011. I graduated from Westwood College in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Visual Communications and in 2006 I graduated from Elgin Community College with an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Computerized Graphic Design.

My passion: I love learning new subjects and I've always wanted to teach others about the things I've learned. My focus for tutoring is for those who are interested in learning more about coding side web design. There's a lot of new and exciting stuff going such as HTML5, Cascading Style Sheets 3, JavaScript libraries (JQuery), content manage systems (WordPress, Joomla!) and mobile websites.

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 an extensive understanding of how to do both basic and more advanced things in Flash to provide a well rounded Flash lesson.

Topics would include:

Working with symbols, creating basic shapes, importing files from other programs such as Illustrator and Photoshop.

Working with the main timeline and creating frames, key frames, and blank key frames. How to add, move, and remove existing frames/key frames.

Creating, editing, and working with movie clips and symbols.

Working with layers (showing layers, hiding, locking, and repositioning.

Creating motion tweens and shape tweens. Explaining the difference between them and how to create animations.

Dreamweaver

Part of my bachelors degree required taking a Dreamweaver course. I use CS5.5 currently

I understand how open, edit, and save different types of files in Dreamweaver.

The differences between Design, split, and code views.

How to use the built-in FTP program to access the web server.

How to use the properties panel to visually edit webpages and change things such as the heading/paragraph formats, assign ID's, Classes, create links, unordered and ordered lists.

HTML

I have experience in writing HTML 4, 5, and XHTML for websites, and I know how to validate HTML through the W3C HTML validator to ensure that it is properly written and error free.

I can teach topics such as writing links, paragraph tags, heading tags, list item tags, and other related formatting tags.

Also, I can show how to incorporate Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) into HTML to control the look of a document.
