I am an animator and graphic designer who has worked in the local print industry for the past twenty years. I have extensive knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, Maya, storytelling, animation, and graphic design. I have worked as a tutor in the past and find great pleasure in seeing a student have the "a-ha!" moment when they understand what they are learning. I prefer to talk to the student about what they want to learn or where they are having trouble and tailor my tutoring to meet their needs. Whether the student is solving a particular problem they are having with homework or teaching them something that is brand new, I have the skills to help them. If they are having problems with a particular assignment, I will review it with them, then coach them from the sideline as they work through it, prompting them when and where necessary. If it is an entirely new area, I will show them the technique, then have them demonstrate what I have done while I coach them, and finally have them use the technique without my assistance. I find that this gives the right level of instruction while also letting the student build self confidence in their abilities.
