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.

Amazing and knowledgeable

Malanchi has been helping me with digital drawing and gives me amazing feedback, homework assignments, among other things, to really develop my skills as an artist. I love working with him. He is kind, patient and super approachable!

Lahaina, 1 lesson with Malachi

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED GRAPHIC DESIGN ARTIST

I was probably Malachi's most technologically-challenged student considering the fact that I had never done what I was looking for someone to help me with. Being very knowledgeable in his field, he was able to teach me the intricacies of graphic design for the business I will be launching next year. He has a fantastic attitude in tutoring---patient and listens to his student. He is very professional and full of creative ideas. I was hesitant to have a session on line being worried that I might not learn, but Malachi made it easy for me to learn. I will definitely use his expertise again as I scale up.

Cora, 2 lessons with Malachi

Knowledgeable, flexible, and communicative

Malachi really helped me figure out the problems in my rig and set me on the right path to accomplish the next step of animation. He was patient as he troubleshooted my problem and then explained how to fix or how to move forward. I appreciate how he used his knowledge to empower a beginner like me

dudes cool

Dudes extremely helpful with teaching how to do poly painting or basically anything Zbrush related extremely well! Have had him now for a couple of weeks and he’a got to be one of the best tutors I’ve had.

Betsy, 14 lessons with Malachi

Observant and patient tutor who offers timely advice

The main thing I learned from Malachi is layering in Adobe Illustrator. The college assignment I had to complete called for me to group designs to use them later on other illustrations. Malachi helped me to group all my designs quickly and orderly. He also saved me time by giving me time-saving advice and showing me shortcuts.
