If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I have been teaching and tutoring for many years. I enjoy seeing my students succeed and knowing that I was able to play a part in this success. I am a graphic designer with expertise in web design and print processes.

I specialize in tutoring graphic design software products and basic design elements to help my students create professional products that stand out from the crowd. My skill level with the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator) is at Advanced/Expert level. I also work extensively with Lightroom, Acrobat, WordPress, multiple plugins, Microsoft Word and Outlook.

I have taught at community colleges and in corporate settings for over 10 years. My design firm offers extensive print and web design services to clients in the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

When working with you as your tutor, I will be asking for feedback. This helps me to improve my tutoring services and helps my clients as you learn. What I ask from my students is that you keep your appointments. I ask for a 24 hour cancellation notification, but offer makeup classes.

In most cases I will travel to your location or a regional library for your tutoring sessions. This insures a quiet and comfortable learning environment.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet with students through Wyzant. My goal is to help you achieve success with challenging software and to get you on the road to creating print documents and web sites that impress.
