Background Check: Passed

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 Illustrator

I have been using Adobe Illustrator since 2004, and teaching students to use the software since 2010. I fluently understand the program and a wide variety of design techniques that I use for graphic design projects related to custom/ character illustration to logo/ branding design.

Adobe InDesign

I have been teaching Adobe InDesign for 4+ years and using it in the field for 10 years. I am very fluent using this tool for prepress layout setup (with any size page layout), stationery design, illustration tool, and have used the tool to publish more than 10 publications (with over 28 pages).

The most intricate use for InDesign I find is setting up the template and various styles when designing multiple page layouts. My method of teaching allows for the student to understand how taking the appropriate time to template design setup can streamline your workflow, as opposed to designing things on a page by page basis.

Recently I have begun to implement the interactive side of InDesign by learning to use it as a web design tool. Although it in not the greatest tool for web design, I find it relevant to at least be a step ahead in understanding how it can transition to interactive design on the browser and mobile device.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been using Adobe Photoshop since 2000. I fluently understand all the basics of this software for digital image enhancement, and as a graphic design tool.
