Originally from Florence, Italy, my experience as a fashion and graphic designer encompasses 12 years.
I have worked in production, where I digitally manipulated product photography (cars and clothing) for websites; as a graphic artist for gift bags creating illustrations, and as a fashion designer, designing clothing with Illustrator and Photoshop, while also creating exciting graphics for tee shirts.
I can easily teach all levels of students all the tricks of the trade, I will cover how to work with an array of projects and files. I will teach how to work with layers, channels, paths, actions, history, mask, retouch, illustrations, logo creations, fashion cads, presentations, graphic and pattern repeats, color correct and use of effects and filters. If you want to become fluent as a fashion designer, I will outline all the process for you, from how to create a mood board to how to put together a collection.
Whether you are in still in school or you need to learn the programs for work or fun, I can help.
If you don't have the material I can provide the software during class, all you need is notes and a willingness to learn. I always give homework, so you practice at home what you learn in class, and I will review your exercises every time, until you become a pro.

Stefania is extremely knowledgeable about Illustrator. My team works at a fashion company, and we needed someone who could speak our language of CADS, stitches and patterns, and she is it! She knows it all and it very organized. She comes prepared with lessons that build upon each other and help you fully understand the tools you are working with. She is very patient and has been able to accommodate various levels of our employees from beginners to intermediate students. She has also been easy to get ahold of! Wonderful tutor, I highly recommend her!
Very relaxed yet professional and focused. I need to bridge the gap between the Italian language I am reading about and the spoken word I want to command. I feel Stefania is very helpful in this goal.
I've learned more from Stefania than I ever could by taking a course. She is very helpful and knowledgeable.
I would recommend Stefania to anyone who wants an excellent, creative teacher. She is teaching me to have conversations as if I'm in Italy with her. She is patient and thinks up interesting ways of learning.
I've been having a great time learning Italian with Stefania! Beyond being a native speaker from Florence, she is a grammatical and linguistic scholar, so she doesn't just know what people say, but really understands the nuts and bolts of how both Italian and English work, and is therefore able to explain very clearly when I have a question about something.
Stefania has an excellent understanding of the programs and teaching methods needed to train aspiring designers. Hands down she is the best tutor I have ever worked with and I wish had been able to access her earlier when I struggled through computer classes at Otis. She adjusts quickly to your learning pace and drives you to succeed in accomplishing computer projects on your own. What helps to set her apart form other tutors are her cordial and attentive demeanor as well as her advanced knowledge of fashion and design fields. She understands how to make your designs look cool and professional and she has a very pleasant welcoming personality.
Stefania helped me to discover how to use Adobe Photoshop. Thanks to her I'm able to improve all my photos before I publish them on my page. She is dedicated, patient and nice. She is also very flexible with the schedule if for some reason you have to cancel your class from time to time. I would highly recommend Stefania!!!
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.
