About Linda

I am a retired Waldorf teacher. Sometimes I think of it as being a Waldorf teacher in recovery. I loved teaching. I taught both adults and children for about 30 years. I then learned Web Design as something I could do from a home office. Being self-employed has it's advantages but I do miss being with people. Tutoring seems like a good possibility. With WyzAnt, I can combine my love of teaching with a flexible schedule and also meet interesting people.
I can tutor in basic HTML, DreamWeaver, WordPress, Photoshop and Illustrator. I only work on an Apple computers. I can use a P.C. but I'm all thumbs on them. Let's explore the possibilities of what we can achieve together.

I have always had Art in my tool set. I see it as a unique way to explore the world. I am Adobe certified in Photoshop. I am constantly learning as the industry changes. I am constantly learning new techniques in painting.

I see students as people who may not know as much as I do about the particular subject but I bet you know something I don't know about that subject. Let's explore! I can also just "stick to the facts" and help with the basics.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Dreamweaver

I learned Dreamweaver at Santa Rosa Junior College many years ago and I've been using it professionally since 2001. I still use it although I have turned to WordPress more and more. When I need more control than WordPress offers I turn to Dreamweaver to construct the web pages. I always use the latest version because I belong to the Adobe Creative Cloud and that keeps me updated with all my Adobe products.

Graphic Design

I majored in Art Education in College so I have some college work in the area of design. Also, I studied Graphic Design when I was learning Web Design.
I use the principles of Graphic Design when designing web site: balance, proximity, alignment, repetition, contrast and space.

Macintosh

I've been using a Macintosh since 2000 (or so). I use my Mac desktop daily in the work I do as a Web Designer. I find there is always something to learn about using my computer and enjoy the challenges of knowing the latest "bells and whistles" of my Mac.

Painting

I have a Masters of Arts in Art Education. I've taught painting to many students, grades 1 thru 8. My medium of choice is painting. I have training in methods used in Waldorf Education and can draw on the Waldorf Curriculum for inspiration.

Web Design

I've been doing Web Design since 2001. I thought it would be a good thing to do from home after retiring from 20+ years of teaching.
I didn't factor in that the industry keeps changing and improving (coders seem to have a lot of time on their hands to make updates)! However, the fact that the industry keeps changing has kept me on my toes to stay current. I prefer clean and simple design. I am an advocate of "KISS" (keep it simple stupid). Although, I think it is friendlier to say "Keep it simple, silly.)
