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 InDesign

I specialize in publication design and utilize Indesign as my primary page layout program. With many years of experience working with Indesign, I have designed and produced catalogs, brochures, newsletters, and other print material for my clients.

Baseball

As a skilled, all-round athlete, I have played and participated in team sports throughout my life. I have played and excelled at high school and collegiate baseball, and currently play and coach on a mens softball team. I have also coached girls/boys youth baseball and softball, as well as high school baseball.

Basketball

As a skilled, all-round athlete, I have played and participated in team sports throughout my life. I have played and excelled at high school basketball, and have played on mens recreational teams for several years. I have also utilized my experience and training as a CPT and fitness instructor to coach girls/boys youth basketball.

Desktop Publishing

For the past 18 years I have owned my own photography and design company, with a special interest in publication design. My years of experience and knowledge in the desktop publishing and print industry has enabled me to effectively manage client projects from conception, to completion of printed or web based designs. I have also become proficient with Macintosh computers, high-end film and flatbed scanners, and desktop publishing and photo editing software.

Fitness

As a well-rounded athlete and avid outdoorsman I've been involved with sports and an active, outdoor lifestyle my entire life. I was an accomplished high school athlete in basketball and baseball and continue to participate and coach organized adult/youth sports. As an avid runner and life long nature seeker, I enjoy the mind-body conditioning and restorative benefits of being active outdoors. My health and fitness pursuits recently led me to a second career as a CPT and Outdoor Fitness Trainer, and will soon add Health Coaching to my resume.

Today, my personal fitness and health program consists of running, hiking, cycling, tennis, and body resistant strength training, as well as cooking and eating mostly a whole-food, plant based diet. As an advocate for outdoor fitness and personal wellness, my goal is to inspire individuals and families to get outdoors and engage with nature, and to realize the pleasure and health benefits that come with an active outdoor lifestyle and healthy diet.

Macintosh

For the past 18 years I have owned my own photography and design company with a special interest in publication design. My years of experience and knowledge using Macintosh computers and desktop publishing software has enabled me to effectively manage client projects from conception, to completion of printed or web based designs.

Photography

As an experienced photojournalist, owner of a portrait photography business, and workshop instructor, I believe my experience speaks favorably to being certified.

Prior to starting my own business, I worked for six years as a newspaper photographer and photo editor for daily and weekly publications in the San Francisco Bay Area, covering local and state events, spot news, features, sports and studio assignments.

For the past fifteen years I have owned Bonnel Photography and Imaging with a special interest in portraiture and event photography. Throughout my career I have gained experience and knowledge in traditional film and darkroom practices, as well as being proficient with DSLR professional cameras and studio lighting equipment, high-end film and flatbed scanners, and desktop publishing and photo editing software.

Softball

As a skilled, all-around athlete, I have played and participated in team sports throughout my life. I have played and excelled at high school and collegiate baseball, and for the past ten years have played and coached on a men's softball team. Over the years I have also coached and managed girls/boys youth softball and baseball teams, as well as high school baseball.

Tennis

As a skilled, all-round athlete, I have played and coached youth and adult sports throughout my life. I've also played and competed in recreational tennis for over 20 years and have been a member of USTA Northern California where I've competed in USTA singles and doubles tournaments. I'm also a certified personal trainer specializing in outdoor fitness and sport specific training and conditioning.
