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 InDesign

I've working in advertising for over 10 years creating mechanicals for print jobs including print ads, brochures and books.

I am able to tutor someone on how to set up layouts for any kind of size and shape while also train them on quick commands so they can build the layouts quickly and efficiently.

There are many levels of InDesign for print including resolution size and prepping for PDF development, as well as HTML proficient pages. It's important for the designer to know all the expectations that InDesigned is able to offer and how to connect PSD and Illustrator files.

Hard Of Hearing

I studied 2 years (5 levels) of ASL at the University of Minnesota and 2 years of the Interpreter program at Pierce college. I've volunteered as an ASL interpreter for the Boys and Girls Club, GLAD, and the North Hollywood public Library, as well as trained caregivers in ASL for a disabled deaf man with a learning disability. I currently produce/host/direct a deaf event for Deaf Talent at the UCB (Upright Citizens Brigade) theater.

Marketing

I have a BA and MS degree in Advertising/Marketing. I've working in advertising for over 10 years as both an art director and a copywriter.

Sign Language

Currently a working freelance ASL Interpreter in the Los Angeles area. I studied 2 years (5 levels) of ASL at the University of Minnesota and 2 years of the Interpreter program at Pierce college. I've volunteered as an ASL interpreter for the Boys and Girls Club, GLAD, and the North Hollywood public Library, as well as trained caregivers in ASL for a disabled deaf man with a learning disability.

Jodi helped set me up with a Twitter account and answered numerous questions. She was able to take a PDF photo and convert it (via photoshop) to fit my Twitter page. Very helpful and nice.
