About Susan

I've been drawing since I can remember. Started out with stars doodles, and ended up as an illustrator for the aerospace industry. I began as a typesetter, and as computers came down in price, I knew I'd have to learn how to draw on a computer. My first job as an illustrator included drawing on a Macintosh the first year they came out. Now Adobe and Microsoft are cross platform, so illustration, graphics, and business programs can be done on either a Mac or PC. I use both, and can teach you how to use yours.

I've taught K-12 through Adult Education in all the Adobe Suite programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, etc.), and also the Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.). In addition, with all the internet business being done these days, it's been imperative to learn web design and social media programs. If you're interested in learning graphics, I can help you. I use Dreamweaver mostly, but also work in HTML (CSS and Flash), so if you're interested in learning how to build your own website, or just want to be better at Email and Internet, I can help with that too.

I work with beginner's and advanced, and consult regularly for Senior Citizen who just want to be able to get their photos off their camera and email them to the grandkids.

I've also written and designed catalogs, brochures and books in InDesign (formerly PageMaker), and can help you self-publish your own books if you're looking for your 15 minutes of fame, or just want to do the family tree in a nice presentation. Speaking of presentation, Powerpoint is a great program for teaching, and promoting yourself or your business.
I could go on and on about the possibilities of computer skills with today's common programs. I enjoy teaching and showing how easy it can be, and I have never-ending patience, so don't be afraid to call me to discuss your next project.

I like to share the limitless possibilities of computer programs and how it can help you. I have never-ending patience, and no question is a stupid question. Things change and keeping up with technology can be overwhelming at times. I can help make it easy. My background in graphics and business make me a good tutor for Adobe graphics programs (Creative Suite), photography (re-touching and manipulation), Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint), and every day file management on your PC or Mac.

I've been trained in art and graphics for business and marketing and can help you understand and design graphics for the printer or a presentation. Photoshop has filters and lots of ways to manipulate your photos, including cropping and re-touching, and color balancing. Understanding basic layout and design will help you show off your computer skills and can help you progress confidently if your looking to advance your career in a creative field. You are limited only by your imagination.
I am constantly updating my software and skills to keep up with today's technology changes. If you're interested in any graphics or business computer programs, I can help. We'll work at your pace and within your budget. I'm flexible and dependable and want to show you how easy computers can be with the proper training. Contact me to discuss your schedule and budget, and let's get started!

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'm a graphic illustrator who has used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for many projects. I also use Dreamweaver and Wordpress for web design. I've been teaching and tutoring all ages (K-12) including adults, teachers and charter schools. Please contact me if you would like guaranteed results for your class.

Graphic Design

I was a Graphic Arts major in college. I was an illustrator for the aerospace industry where I drew with pen and ink and created proposals for company like Boeing. I was trained on Macintosh graphics programs such as Adobe Creative Suite. I was trained on PC for office applications such as Microsoft Office Suite including Word, Excel and PowerPoint for presentations. I taught K-12 school and was certified as a Vocational Teaching Instructor in Colorado. In Nevada and California, I also taught Adult Education and Charter School classes while tutoring in Adobe graphics programs and Microsoft office programs for continued education.

Macintosh

I have been working on a Macintosh computer since it's inception. My first job was drawing illustrations for the aerospace industry and submitting proposals for large government contracts.
I also have a networking background, and understand setting up and installation of operating systems, software programs and hardware for home and office networks that include Macintosh.
My background in Adobe Suite and Microsoft Office Suite software expanded to Macintosh when both of those companies made their software for cross-platform. Now you can create something on a Mac and open it on a PC. In addition, as the operating systems for both continue to grow, they have many applications that are cross-platform.

Microsoft Excel

I have an extensive background in Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite programs. I have taught K-12 in the public schools, for charter schools and for adult education in several city government and hospital wellness programs. I guarantee results or your money back.

Microsoft Windows

I started out working with Microsoft Windows at the beginning, and have continued to use PC applications for business and personal use. The operating system and drivers for a PC are integral in setting up and installing networks and connecting to the internet, and now, the Cloud.
I first installed Windows 95 in an entire school district, then upgraded to Windows 2000 and have continued to use Windows up to today's newest Vista and currently Windows 10.
I have taught K-12 students, teacher's and staff, and adult education classes in Windows software, Microsoft Office Suite, and file management on PCs. I am fluent in all aspects of business and personal software including Outlook (email), search engine browsing, and now the Cloud.
