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 Photoshop

I have used Photoshop extensively as a video game artist and graphic designer for content creation, photo editing and image manipulation.

Drawing

Academically I have taken drawing courses in high school to the AP Art exam, and drawing courses in college in both the Art department and Architecture department. Professionally I was a production artist at a local video game company for 4 years and my duties included drawing pixel art for handheld platforms such as the GBA and DS as well as high resolution art for XBLA and PS3 games.

Guitar

I am a semiprofessional musician and have been playing music for about 10 years. I play the guitar and bass guitar, and have recently started teaching beginner guitar privately. I also have music theory for those wanting to learn more about the technical side of music and compose.

Latin

AP Latin score of 5.
Have been a Latin tutor for other tutoring services.

Excellent!

Excellent knowledge. Easy to talk with. Met my every need and more! Conrad had helpful insights and provided needed options between Ecclesiastical and Classic Latin. He took more time to answer my last minute questions. We met at a comfortable cafe that was easy to get to for me. Conrad understood what I needed to accomplish in the session and we got it done in the time allotted.
