And now for something completely different. I am intelligent, creative, organized, and patient. My specialties are mainly computer
based. I can give you insider tips and secrets on a variety of subjects. Teaching you to work smarter not harder is my goal, and we may have some fun while we're at it.
As for my credentials: I recently finished an intensive 1 year full time certificate program in print and graphic production, which focused on Adobe CS 5.5. The course work included: Print Production, Photoshop
and Lightroom, Illustrator
, InDesign, Web Production, Photoshop Compositing, Adobe CS, Foundations of Color, Digital Photography
and Video, New Media, and History
of Graphic Communications. This is in addition to my Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts from University of Arizona, and many credits in web design
from a few years ago.
If you are coming to me for help in Adobe CS you should have your own computer with the program(s) you want to learn installed. I will bring my own mac laptop with CS6 Design Standard (Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Acrobat), Lightroom 4, and CS3 Web Design programs. I can come up with a lesson plan and provide files for you to work on side by side, or we can work on your your own projects depending on your level/experience with the software.
If you are coming to me for help in Spanish
. I lived in South America several years of my life and specialize in conversational Spanish. I taught Spanish at Berlitz and am comfortable teaching in a full immersion method, or in partial immersion if necessary for the student. I have tutored 2 college level 1st and 2nd year students and helped them bring up their grades significantly in a few sessions. I also could have minored in Spanish, had I only taken one more class. My Spanish has no form of an American or "Gringo" accent.
My students have a wide age range. I have taught skiing to 4 year olds, Spanish to those in their 20-40s, and done tech support for all ages. I have worked in tech support and customer service for over 10 years which definitely attests to my patience!
Thanks for taking the time to read all of this. I look forward to meeting you.
