Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Illustrator

Adobe’s Illustrator software is a very helpful tool used to render images and to create digital art. I've used Illustrator to illustrate catalogs and children’s books, layout interior plans and architectural elevations, render style patterns and to create t-shirt designs, greeting cards and word art. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and seventeen years of experience working with Adobe Illustrator software.

Adobe InDesign

InDesign is a software application used for desktop publishing projects. I have used InDesign to layout booklets, brochures, flyers, grocery circulars, ePub books and print book layouts, postcards, instruction guides and term papers requiring charts and graphs! I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design, and twelve years of experience working with InDesign software. InDesign file sizes are often large, but it is an irreplaceable resource because the InDesign software easily imports and combines pictures, video, XML files and text!

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is an imaging and editing tool. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and seventeen years of experience working with Photoshop. I mostly use Photoshop to enhance photographs, design posters, signs, advertisements and to prepare images for use on the Web or on a website. Photoshop is also a great software to use to render special effects, 3 dimensional forms and architectural interiors and elevations.

Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing is the process of creating refined page layouts for print and the Web. Today, most software applications have been designed to include DTP capabilities and this allows individuals, businesses, and organizations to print their own print collateral, newsletters, books and newspapers in-house. In the design profession, creative artists are trained to implement desktop publishing best practices.

I have employed desktop publishing best practices for nearly all of the seventeen years of my professional practice because it is such an important element in marketing and advertising.

Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver is a software application used to create web pages for a web site. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and twelve years of experience working with Dreamweaver. I use Dreamweaver to design and develop websites.

General Computer

A computer is a workstation platform that accepts input from human operators or "users" and produces output. This exchange of data is processed by the computer through code or data that the computer reads, manipulates and or stores. Peripheral devices allow information to be entered from an external source, and allow the results of operations to be executed.

I am a knowledgeable computer user and can help you become more proficient in using your computer. Another computer service I provide is to help to install and upgrade your computer’s RAM or memory.

Macintosh

The Macintosh is a computer designed and developed for Apple Inc. The first Macintosh was introduced by Steve Jobs on “January 24, 1984”. It featured a mouse and a graphical user interface. Some consider the Macintosh more “user friendly” than a PC. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and have been using the Macintosh since its introduction in 1984.

Video Production

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and four years of experience working with video production software. One of the video production software applications I work with is iMovie. iMovie is a Mac OS X software component of the iLife suite. iMovie helps you create video footage from artwork, photo files or digital camera recordings. With the software’s editing tools you can edit your video clips and enhance the footage with color correction, titles, speech, music, sound effects and transition slides. The video you create can then be exported to YouTube or embedded into a website.

Web Design

With a professional degree in Design and eleven years of experience in web design and maintaining websites, I am eager to help you with your website. Web design is the process of creating a website. A website is composed of pages linked together that are viewed on the Internet from a user’s Web browser. It's content is composed of text, images, web graphics and interactive elements.
