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.

I have over ten years of experience doing graphic design. I used Adobe Illustrator most recently on the design of a board game called Chaosmos. I've also done freelance poster & t-shirt design.
