I have a master's in art, and I've been teaching Photoshop since the early '90s. I started in the private sector, teaching with a training firm. In those days, I also taught some beginning Illustrator and After Effects.

I have since moved on to teaching at Ventura Community College, Photoshop and Multi-Media, the Art Institutes (Hollywood, Santa Monica), DeVry on site and online, and workshops.

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.
