Although it's an essential condition for being a good tutor, to have been the beneficiary of an extensive education is, on its own, not enough. Especially required by the art of tutoring is an ability to appreciate and foster the innate skills and specific talents carried by each and every learner, and which often belong to learners in ways only beginning to shine forth. Beyond expertise, what a good tutor brings to the table is the ability to share a strong understanding that what is most important for any student's engagement of any field of knowledge is that such learning has just as much to do with a student's own personal relationship to the world and their ability to thrive within it as it may concern the particular details proper to any subject of study. All too often, and especially with today's regular expansion of class sizes and overworking of teachers, learners can often very correctly feel that a depersonalized process of learning does not sufficiently allow them to see how what it addresses is particularly important to them, and this preeminently avoidable factor alone can over time hold an all too negative influence over a student's attempts at scholastic success. As a tutor in the humanities with an emphasis upon reading comprehension, compositional writing, and the social sciences, I offer enthusiastically customized help in bringing people into fluent communication not only with the materials that need to be learned, but with their own futures.
I have extensive experience in magazine and retail catalogue design and pre-press production (monotone, duotone and four-color separation) using QuarkXpress in combination with Adobe Creative Suite, InDesign, (and even, at times, in certain circumstances, Microsoft Word!) I was responsible for design and layout (and corporate image re-branding) of all major national direct-mail advertising materials for a major retail art supply company from 2000-2001, complete cover-to-cover design and layout of "Eco Latino" Magazine of Athens, GA from 2003-2004, and assisted in the production of New Drug Applications from Glaxo Smith Wellcome to the Food and Drug Administration (1994). My long-term design acumen has always born strong emphasis on typography as an essentially focal aesthetic component of all communication materials; this emphasis carries on into my current effort to establish a small independent press, focused on publishing debut English editions of previously untranslated short works of French philosophy in e-book format and luxury print editions (woodcut letterpress, custom artisanal papers, sewn archival artist's bindings).
