I am happy to help novices, designers who wish they knew how to write markup, and developers who wish they knew how to create graphics. I have experience tutoring kids and adults, and I can host online sessions if remote classes are more convenient for you.
Newbies, I will walk you through building your own, functioning website in just a couple sessions. If you already have some web experience, I will tailor the lesson around your interests, or you can just use our time to troubleshoot a problem you're trying to solve. If you are a CSS/HTML
lessons. Basically, I can help you with anything related to web interface creation.
I cannot help you on the server side of things (other than some basic PHP
). I'm not a Java
developer, I've never used command line JS, I don't know SQL
A DIFFERENT WHO
Okay, and now for my credentials in a nutshell. I am a User Experience Designer at a mid-sized Web application company based out of Austin, TX, but with an office in New York. In addition to designing interfaces, I've done some web and code architecture
work. I'm pretty good at DOM scripting, and I'm thankful for JQuery. Because I'm a designer, I'm well-versed in Photoshop and Illustrator
I tutored math
at a couple local high schools, and taught an extended education course at the University of Texas.
Oh, and I'm writing
a textbook about mobile product design.
So ya. I know some things, and I think teaching is fun.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.
Here are some of the resources created by Amalia.

My current student came to me with a really interesting challenge: she basically wants to learn all the techniques on PhotoWow.com. I feel really lucky that my first Photoshop student came with a curriculum! We've been systematically going down the list
of photo enhancements offered on the site. It's nice because she has a way to measure my skill (how well I can reverse-engineer PhotoWow's...
This week I got my first Photoshop student, a busy mom who is currently abroad. She initially contacted me to create a Photoshop video tutorial for her, which I was happy to do. Unfortunately, the tutorial took 10.5 hours for me to produce! The actual art
demonstration only took me 1.5 hours, but all the rest was editing, voiceovers, and rendering. Ah! How would we make it work?
If you are a Designer or are thinking about starting a career as one, you may have become intimidated by the increasingly bloated job descriptions employers are putting out there as of late. The tools of the trade have expanded from pencils and rulers, to
Photoshop and InDesign, to HTML and CSS, to Java, PHP, ASP.net, and so-forth. Is it too much to ask a Creative to be an analytical Developer...
