About Bill

My name is Bill and my background is Graphic Design. I feel tutoring is important if a student is having problems with a particular course or task. Learning something new each day is a goal of mine and should be yours too. I've worked with a variety of clients ranging from entertainment, gaming, fashion, beauty, high-end jewelry, automotive, branding, travel, real estate and industrial. Throughout my career, I've been asked by my colleagues how to do certain techniques and I gladly show them how to do them. I love tutoring professionals and students. Seeing an individual actually put what I've taught them into use is the most rewarding part of tutoring.

I specialize in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. Photoshop is mainly used for imagery where as Illustrator is more used for Logo design, t-shirt design, charts, graphs, and of course complex vector illustrations. File management is extremely important when working with multiple layers in either application and I'm very detailed when it comes to this... it's actually a industry must, if you don't do this, you will be the talk of the department for sure and you don't want that. If need be, I will put together a homework project involving what I've taught you. In most cases, my students learn what I teach very quickly and isn't usually necessary.

The first student I tutored was at the school I graduated from. I don't recall her name, but she definitely needed my help. Once I engaged everything I knew about the weaknesses she needed help with, we connected. She was on the brink of not graduating so I had to help her. After my tutoring, she was able to graduate. She was so happy.

I liked tutoring so much and the Director of Education was so impressed, I was asked to tutor another student. This time it was on a different are of Graphic Design. He needed help with Adobe Illustrator. I sat down with him and asked what he needed help with and went one hundred with him. It was a short session because he was able to grasp what I showed him very quickly.

I'm professional, on time and I've been doing this for over 24 years. I'm only available on the weekends between 10am - 4pm. My rate is $80/hr.

Feel free to contact me for more details and availability. If it's a topic that I do not know of, I will be up front with you and have to decline. My expertise is in print, I do know some web and digital techniques as well, but I need to be 100% confident I will be able to help you with it otherwise I will have to decline.

I look forward to hearing from you and I wish you much progress with your creativity!
