Approved subjects

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.

Macintosh

As a Life long Apple Macintosh user I started using the Macintosh computer products in high school, when I entered Pratt Institute I got more familiar with the MacBook and it's unique operating system. Now professionally I use the I Mac everyday at work in the fashion field. I am very comfortable with all the Macintosh products to share my knowledge to help someone else master the Mac.

Sewing

As A master pattern maker, I correct and approve samples for production before their on sale at retail, for some of the biggest name brand Designer garments in the New York Fashion industry, names like Tommy Hilfiger to Polo Ralph Lauren. As a Technical Designer I wear many hats in bringing the designers concept
to life. In short I have to know all sewing and finishing techniques to fix and correct garments from swim wear, jackets, coats, Jeans and sweaters. All this was learned at Pratt Institute where I earned a BFA in Fashion Design.
