Experienced Free Lance Graphic Art and Web Designer with over 20 years of experience in Office Administration.

I am proficient in several of the Adobe CS5.5 products which include the following:
Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks,
HTML and CSS, Java Script, Quark, Preps
Micro Soft Office Products – Excel, Word, Outlook, Publisher and PowerPoint.
Digital Photography – Use a SLR Cannon Rebel XTI

Currently, I am working towards my degree in Web Development and I am familiar with several technologies used such as php, MySQL, Asp.net, Ajax, IDE - Netbeans, Glass Fish etc.

I use video tutorials and hands on lab exercises to first teach the software program's interface and capabilities of the program. I then assign related real world projects to re-enforce the material taught so students can demonstrate the skills and competencies required.

I have tutored in a working college lab and always enjoyed helping others more than working on my own projects. I have a passion for design and creativity and love to work with others who share the same drive and passion as I. I always feel rewarded when seeing my students' accomplishments when they are challenged and achieve their goal.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank you and I am glad that Diana enjoyed the lesson. She is very polite and an attentive advanced student. I am confident she will rapidly progress. It's always an added bonus to have a student who is so interested in the subject matter and willing to learn.

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 maintained Flash Based Websites for Black Dog Brand, I have an example of a Flash inter active file on my website. I have taken courses in Adobe Flash as part of my Visual Communications and Web Certification Degree.

Adobe Illustrator

I have designed and created vector graphics utilizing Illustrator for myself and several projects. Examples of my work can be found on my personal website.

I create several of my web graphics and backgrounds with Illustrator as well. It really is one of my favorite Adobe Programs and one of the most rewarding to use once the Pen tool is mastered.

I have taught several students tips and tricks and the key to paying attention to the visual clues and mastering the pen tool is the key to their success.

Adobe Photoshop

I have published several web sites utilizing Dreamweaver, HTML, CSS and Photoshop. I own Sparks2Art Design and have several clients including a locally owned and operated Franchise Designated Drivers Across America in which I provide Web maintenance and templates and Graphic Design Services too.

http://www.sparks2art.com is my personal portfolio site that include some examples of what I have created using several of the Adobe products including Photoshop. The graphics for the header of many of the websites were created in Photoshop and also the images that were created, corrected and enhanced were also executed in Photoshop. I am not sure how I can avoid including links to demonstrate my skills and knowledge of Photoshop as there is no required test applicable. Below are links. Please email me back if you need additional information.

Microsoft Outlook

I have over 10 years' experience with Microsoft Outlook for managing email, tasks, calendars, meetings, contacts. I have used it in an office environment as a Client Service Administrator.

Photography
