I have over 15 years of experience with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign in several different settings. I have worked in pre-press departments, done package design, business logo design, basically anything involving graphics. I teach in plain terms, not technical terms, which makes me an ideal choice to help you learn. I have trained several coworkers and am constantly pushing my knowledge. I like the student to let me know what they want to learn instead of wasting time with techniques they may have no use for. Your paying for my knowledge, get the most bang for your buck! The applications I am most at home with are Illustrator and Photoshop although there aren't too many of their applications that I'm not somewhat proficient in, this includes Adobe Acrobat, LiveCycle, Flash, Dreamweaver and Captivate. Not only do I teach you, but I can show you the best places online to further your learning and find extras and add-ons for the Adobe applications. Because of my intimate knowledge of the programs, I can teach you skills, techniques, tricks of the trade that you won't learn in a classroom. If someone tells you they know everything about any Adobe applications, they have just stopped learning.

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

I have worked with Illustrator for going on 16 years and am constantly adding to my skill set. I specialize in logo and icon creation. I enjoy finding ways to achieve art that most people only think you can do in Photoshop.

Adobe Photoshop

I have worked with Photoshop for going on 16 years and in that time I have learned the ins and outs of Photoshop. From color correction to removing unwanted elements in a photo. I know the best way to save an image no matter if it's for web or print.

Outstanding and warm — Nick was great. He is patient and open-minded to students, willing to explain concepts in many ways and will go step-by-step in whatever aspect is needed. I will definitely select him again. ...
