About Julianne

Hello. I'm currently working as a web designer for a small firm and finishing up my senior thesis. I'm in charge of creating as well as maintaining my company's website and web store. I'll be designing the look and feel [front-end] of the site as well as programming [back-end] the shopping cart modules. I've been tutoring since 2005 and have been a camp counselor during the summer. I always love math and wish I could use it in my career but life is not this perfect. Therefore, I want to teach math so that I won’t forget it and teach other subjects related to my career. I can teach at a fast or slow pace depending on what the students like. I tend to ask questions to review and make sure my students understand the entire concept whenever we get to a good stopping point. I’m a visual person so I always like to teach visually, metaphorically, and giving many examples. I think this will make it easier for the students to learn. Hello.

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.

Adobe Illustrator

I started using Adobe Illustrator back in the late 1990s when it was called Illustrator 7. Many versions have been released since and new features introduced every time. As Adobe releases new versions, it is a necessity for me to keep up with the updates and its new features. I use Illustrator to create anything that is a vector graphic.

Adobe InDesign

I've been working with the Adobe software when InDesign was at version 5, or CS3. Now, it is InDesign CC, so I have more than 10 years of experience with this software. I use InDesign for page layout concepts such as magazines, books, portfolio, or any multi-page projects.

Adobe Photoshop

I started using Adobe Photoshop back in the mid 1990s when it was called Photoshop 2. Many versions have been released since and new features introduced every time. As Adobe releases new versions, it is a necessity for me to keep up with the updates and its new features. I use Photoshop to enhance pictures. My favorite Photoshop tool is the Pen Tool.

Desktop Publishing

Back in the late 1990s, I used Adobe PageMaker and Quark XPress for Desktop Publishing. Functionality wise, Quark XPress was a better choice back then so I mostly use Quark XPress. Overtime, Adobe released InDesign and Acrobat and it made me switch back to use solely the Adobe Suite. You can use both InDesign and Acrobat for Desktop Publishing because each has its own unique features. You can design a 50-page software manual using InDesign and print out the hard copy as well as export a PDF soft copy. You can, then, use Acrobat to create internal links or even add videos within the PDF itself.

Dreamweaver

I started using Adobe Dreamweaver back in the mid 1990s when it was called Macromedia Dreamweaver 2. Many versions have been released since and new features introduced every time. As Adobe releases new versions, it is a necessity for me to keep up with the updates and its new features. I use Dreamweaver to create and manage responsive websites.

Graphic Design

I was first introduced to Graphic Design back in the late 1990s. After experiencing it for a few years, I realized I have an aptitude in this art category. Because I have a passion for creativity and a keen eye for design, Graphic Design comes easily. Getting an education also helps me understand what to do and what not to do as well as what works and what doesn't.

Macintosh

I started using a Mac back in 1997. I have decades of experience with it. Currently, I own an iMac and a MacBook Pro. I know all the keyboard shortcuts and even removing the hardware to replace batteries or upgrade drives. If you use an iPhone, you'll appreciate what a Mac can do for you!

Web Design

My first introduction to web design was in the mid 1990s where there was the WYSIWYG programs such as Dreamweaver. I would first design my wireframe in Photoshop, create slices for my images, buttons, etc, and export those slices to use in Dreamweaver. In Dreamweaver, I would use tables to create my layout. Then moving on to the CSS years, and then the HTML5 years, and here we are now in the responsive design years.

Excellent Tutor

It is with great pleasure that I provide feedback regarding my tutor, Julianne. She tutored me on a web design for my Senior Thesis.
