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.

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

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,

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,

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.
Graphic Design

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.

Desktop Publishing,

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,

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.

Macintosh,

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,

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.

Helpful and friendly!

Julianna was very quick to respond to my messages. We set up a tutoring session same day! She was able to explain how to fix the issues I was having, and did so in a very easy to understand way. I will definitely use her in the future!!

Patient and Creative Graphic Design Tutor

Julianne helped me do a dreamweaver website assignment. She took me through the whole process of making a website from designing it on photoshop to bringing it to life in Dreamweaver. I am a novice at Photoshop and Dreamweaver Julianne was so patient and encouraging with me. She wants you to walk away from a lesson feeling like you learned not only graphic design skills, but helpful computer short cuts that you will use every day. Definitely contact Julianne for all of your graphic design needs!

Excellent work on my broken website

Excellent work on my broken website. Hope the following meets your 160-character requirement. "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. "Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. "But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or

Great lesson with Julianne

I had some basic knowledge of AI, so I need someone to walk me through what I need to know. I took some online sessions, but didn't find what I need to learn, or I should say they were going through most of the knowledge I've already knew, too slow, not efficient. So I've decided to hire a tutor to teach me exactly what I want to learn, so I can continue with my project for work. We've spent 3 hours going through some techniques and examples in detail, Julianne was so patient and skillful. She taught me how the feature works and also told me about how to organize my layers for easy editing later on. I was able to continue my work right after the lessons and now I can do much more with AI! Thanks to Julianne! Highly recommended to anyone who wants to take lessons for AI! (She also knows many other design software!)
