I have many years of experience in graphic design and photography. I have incorporated both through my career as well as used both for marketing purposes. I offer a hands-on approach where I can demonstrate and lead by example. I am fine on a Mac or a PC but my heart is with Mac. If you want to learn photography, just know, that it is not easy and needs time and patience. Graphic design has certain rules that can be changes to fit your style. Specialties include Indesign, QuarkXPress, Illustrator and Photoshop for software, and I shoot with Canon cameras but understand most camera's functions.

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 InDesign

As a graphic designer I use InDesign in catalog production and instruction manuals. I use it for the creation of advertisements as well. In using InDesign more, I am beginning to us it more than Quark XPress and understanding its strength in creating a printed page.

Business

I have owned my own business for over 20 years. I know how to advise those wanting to start a business or need help in rescuing a business. Let me know how I can help.

Career Development

I have HR experience both in my current position and while I had my own business. I have given many friends advice and support to assist them in moving forward in their careers. I have had a successful career and know what it takes to move forward.

Macintosh

I have several years working on Macintoshes. That is doing publishing work as well as fixing and updating of systems and applications. So I guess you can say, I am a Macintosh expert.

Marketing

I have several years experience in marketing my own business and for my clients. I have done press kits, advertisements, written for radio and television ads. I have done creative and analytics and know what it takes to sell.

Photography

I had my own photography business for 10 years. I feel that I know how to discuss, teach and instruct the basics of photography.
