I have a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design and Performing Arts, Minors in Computer Science Game Design, Writing, Studio Art, and Dance; along with a Master of Fine Arts in Animation and Visual Effects focusing on 3D Modeling and Texturing.

I bring my multi-disciplined artistic skills into my tutoring. I have over 4+ years of formal tutoring 7 to 30+ year olds in 3D modeling (for film/gaming/3D printing), graphic design, digital painting, story development (writing/editing). I have worked in film, and have designed assets for video games. I enjoy empowering others with their artistic development whether it is for hobby’s sake, a lifelong passion, or career pivot. My belief is the language of art is what can bridge communication barriers.

What makes me an outstanding tutor is I have an adaptive teaching method, which is reflective of the best practices I have experienced myself. I have the latest software and up-to-date computer hardware, to ensure a smooth teaching experience online.

Whether you are just starting out or needing another creative to provide constructive feedback before submitting an assignment or trying to build your skills for a potential career or hobby, I will support you all along the way.

Knowledgeable and patient

Helped my daughter immensely with a project in Adobe using Idesign. He really helped her grasp just enough of what she needed to complete the project successfully on her own.

Clear and Step-by-Step Assistance

Malachi guided me through a step-by-step process in Photoshop to size photos, remove backgrounds and use layers for placement in InDesign. He helped me redo an InDesign book for a 2nd publication. His clear directions gave me the tools to complete my projects. I am grateful for his assistance and recommend him to others. 4 Sessions Steve

Knowledgable, Friendly Tutor!!

Malachi is helping me work through my first project in Maya. He is patient and determined to help me figure out the complexities of the program. i come in with questions and goals and we go through the list in a casual way- he picks up on my pace and my skill level in order to explain things in a simple way and provides visuals to supplement. I am so thrilled i found him!

Knowledgeable and organized

Malachi has been tutoring my high school son in Adobe Illustrator. He is really organized and presents the material in an easy to understand way. We are huge fans!

Shows a Clear Understanding of the Software

My appointment with Malachi was great! He addressed my questions by walking me through via screen share, then watching me attempt to complete my assignment with the new information. I was then assisted with any additional questions.

Experienced and Knowledgeable tutor

Malachi did a great job helping me with my presentation - his experience, working-knowledge and patience was a great help and a time saver. I look forward to working with Malachi in the future as I expand my knowledge in Maya.

Todd, 7 lessons with Malachi

Great and useful tutor

The funny thing is that I looked at his profile and planned on contacting him for assistance. Instead, he reached out to me first. I am very grateful that he did. Malachi is reliable, flexible, a good communicator, patient, humorous, and knowledgeable. He guided me and offered suggestions on designing my infographic poster, which was very helpful to me since I had a hard time keeping track and revising my progress book, which led to my infographic. It was a pleasure to work with him. I will use him again in the future. I highly recommend him for any services.
