Hello. I am a Japanese female who is interested in teaching Photography and Photoshop. I don't use Photoshop CC at home, but I still can teach all the basics.
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 :) Hello. I am a Japanese female who is interested in teaching Photography and Photoshop. I don't use Photoshop CC at home, but I still can teach all the… Read more
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.
Sawako not only had professional job skills in terms of her specialty, ie photography and photoshop, but also was very punctual, sincere and helpful to all my needs and questions.
I am very satisfied with her timely manner and professional attitude.
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.
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.
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.
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.
