All of Liz’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Liz’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Adobe InDesign

I have worked as a graphic designer for 10 years with InDesign as my main tool for creating books, reports, brochures, flyers, exhibits, posters, banners and digital presentations.
I have attended dozens of InDesign User Group meetings to keep up to speed with the latest advancements and to learn advanced and time saving techniques.
As an in-house graphic designer, and have been the in-house guru for all things InDesign - from troubleshooting with somewhat experienced users to helping the complete novice get set up and going.
Sometimes I even dream in InDesign.

Desktop Publishing

Most of my years of experience in desktop publishing comes from working in Adobe's InDesign, but these skills are easily translated to Quark, MS Publisher, and even Word.

I can help you set up long documents and efficiently apply styles to the whole document for efficiency and consistency. My graphic design experience leans towards typography and print design, and I can show you the rules that makes your document look more readable, professional and well-designed.

I will also emphasize the need to think through to the final result -- how will this be printed and who is the final audience. I have helped many clients find suitable print options and self-publishing avenues.

Macintosh

I have owned and operated Macintosh computers since 2001, and am familiar with most models and Operating Systems (OS), core programs, and accessories.

I continue to attend Mac classes at the Apple store to keep up with the best ways to work with the newest OS.

I can help those new to the Mac how to orient to the new workspace, shortcuts to navigating the "windows," how to install programs and organize files.

Photography

I am a digital and film photographer with a solid understanding of exposure, particularly for existing light situations. I have owned and worked with dozens of cameras and can help the newer photographer find the best way to work with their camera for their desired results.

Some areas that I would be most helpful in working one on one with a student would be improving exposures and understanding histograms, street/candid/event photography, nature photography, and film experimentations with toy and vintage cameras.

I lean towards artistic and journalistic photography, and I would not be much help with studio lights or models.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
