About Javier

I received my Masters of Fine Arts in 3D animation from Academy of Art University.

For almost 6 years, I taught the fundamentals of 3D animation to mostly high school students, and some grade school too.

My approach varies depending on the student's intentions, but generally I start from the ground up. If the student is not familiar with the subject, we go over the basic tools, and how to become familiar with the interface. We will start with some exercises so that I can recognize my students strengths and weaknesses, and in the case of those who are some what familiar with the software, reviewing what we may have forgotten.

I make an effort to let my students grow, and having worked with children, I am also incredibly patient. Getting to know what my students goals are is very important, because my intentions are to help them grow and NOT waste their time.

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.

Maya

I have a Master of Fine Arts in 3D animation. I have taught 3D animation using Maya at a private school for 5 years, but I started with traditional animation using animation cameras before I steered towards 3D.
California State University, Fullerton is where I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation. I participated in the production of a few animation short films at the CSUF Film Festival in 2004. During my time at CSUF, I also had the opportunity to intern and assist in the production of a short film presented at the 2007 Comic Con in 2007.
