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

I work as a graphic designer when I am not doing photography or tutoring. I use InDesign whenever something is too complex or large to design in Photoshop. I have created several 100+ page catalogs in InDesign and also created brochures using InDesign.

Macintosh

I have used mac products and computers for over 10 years. In that time, I have owed iPhones, iPods, iBooks, and the desktop computer (the G4). I also have used Mac products at work to teach Photoshop in a computer lab with iMacs. I am very knowledgable in the latest OS, OS X Mountain Lion and all of the software that comes standard with a new mac computer (iPhoto, iTunes, iMovie, etc.)

Painting

I have a bachelor's degree in Studio Art with a concentration in Painting from the University of Tulsa. I have experience using both oil paint and acrylic paint on a wide variety of surfaces: panel, paper, and canvas. I have also taught young children the basics of paint application and mixing paint.

Photography

I have been doing fine art and commercial photography for over 5 years. I have a MFA in photography. I am very knowledgable in using the digital camera, 35mm, medium format, and view camera. I also know all of the basic and advanced usage of the camera, like depth of field, aperture, composition, f-stop, and film speed. I currently work as commercial photographer and graphic designer.

Claims on his profile are far more than he delivers — I took a lesson with Mr. Kyle M. I got in touch with him clearly telling him that I needed help with Adobe Indesign as I needed to send out a newsletter. During the two hour lesson, none of my questions were answered and I was very disappointed. If the tutor does not know the basics of a subject, he should NOT claim otherwise.
