About Sawako

Hello. I am a Japanese female who is interested in mainly teaching Photography and Photoshop. I don't use Photoshop CC at home, but I still can teach all the basics. I can work on both Mac and PC.

I am friendly and very patient. However, I don't want to tutor a student who want the last minute help for his/her final project, because it won't help to the student's real understanding of the tools.

Also, as a Japan native, I am able to teach Japanese, along with Japanese traditional customs.

Thank you for your interest and I look forward to meeting you soon :)

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.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Photoshop over 10 years. I took some classes at Santa Monica College, but most of my Photoshop techniques came from by working as a retoucher. I am able to bring a person who hasn't used Photoshop before up to a level to use this application comfortably.

General Computer

I can use both Windows and Mac. Although I haven't worked on Windows 10 yet.

Japanese

I am a Japanese who was born and grew up there. I've been in US for over 15 years and I am a legal permanent resident.
As Japanese is my first language, it's natural for me to explain some differences between words and phrases and I also am able to explain Japanese cultural background as well.

Photography

I have been in photography industry over 10 years. I took some classes at Santa Monica College, but most of my digital photography experiences came from my work experience.

I am able to teach a basic digital photography, including Photoshop technique. I, personally use Canon system and Phase One/Capture One system for work. However, if you want to learn the Capture One program, you need to have your own program.

Quick to grasp my needs — Although I spoke some Japanese 50 years ago, I needed to jump-start my memory for a quickly scheduled trip to Japan. Sawako speaks very clearly and taught me the phrases and vocabulary I needed to describe my present life and activities while traveling. ...
