Hello! My name is Jim P. and I am available to tutor you in what I know best, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and Flash animation. My job is to get you up and running on the latest software, targeting what you want to get accomplished, and leave you with the confidence that you understand the tools and techniques to go further.
Presently I am employed with Blackstone Valley Regional Vocational High School as a Design & Visual Communications instructor. Along with my colleagues, I teach Graphic Design, Animation, Web Design, Digital Photography, and Video. My background includes Graphic & Web Design, Cartoon Clip Art (200 vector images per month for 5 years), a running Comic Strip (Published in Norway), Editorial & Story Illustration for several New England newspapers (won the NEPA Awards 3 years in a row), T-shirt and Embroidery Design, Storyboards for local film companies, and 8 years of teaching. I am well versed in the Adobe Master Suite Collection CS6, and have been Adobe Certified in Rich Media and Photoshop.
I really work well on a one-on-one basis and try to have fun while doing so. I have tons of shortcuts and techniques that will make sense to you and do my best to make the complicated look easy. Most of the time, the first look at any software can be intimidating. My job will be to make the tools and techniques easy to understand and to get you on your way.
