About David

Dear Prospective Student,

My name is David and I am a digital media instructor. I currently teach 3 creative design classes at the South Bay Counseling Center. I have created the curriculum from scratch for two of the three classes I teach. I have had a passion to teach for years and look forward to this great opportunity to be your tutor.

My specific tutoring subjects and lesson plans will be designed around the following subjects: Photoshop (intro to intermediate), Flash (intro), Premiere (intro), After Effects (intro), Drawing, Cartooning, 2d Animation, Character Development and Storyboarding.

I have over 8 years of experience in the industries of gaming and animation. I've worked in major studios including Disney and Warner Bros. I also run a successful freelance design business with services from graphic design, animation, murals to graffiti design. I am eager to share my knowledge with students who are equally as hungry to learn it.

I expect all students to work hard and take the initiative to go above and beyond. The successful student is one who continues to work after tutoring sessions are over. I prefer to meet with students at the local coffee shops rather than in their homes. I look forward to the prospects of working with you soon.

Respectfully yours,

David

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.

Animation

My studio was hired by the global leaders in education Pearson Foundation to create over 200 short animated videos. I create several whiteboard and explainer videos for clients using After Effects and Photoshop.

Drawing

I have been digitally drawing and animating all of my short cartoons using computer software, but I still create a lot of my contracted client work by sketching and drawing by hand for preliminary ideas. I then use a cintiq monitor to digitize all of my artwork and cartoons.

Video Production

I own and operate a small animation studio. Over the last two years, I have been hired to create a series of over 200 educational videos for The Pearson Foundation targeting k through 6th grade. I took the scripts, and completed everything from story boarding, hiring voice actors, music and sound fx, motion graphics and final video output.

Last year I was hired to do my first live action music video which I directed, story boarded and edited.
