2 years business at OSU/USU+ Assoc. Degree Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale (Graphic Design)
I love working one-on-one with people and with over 25 years of experience in the advertising and graphic design industry I now enjoy using my knowledge to teach others. I graduated from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, have worked as an Art Director for ad agencies, and now specialize in tutoring and freelance graphic design.
My areas of expertise are with the three major Adobe software programs for the graphic design industry: Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign in a Mac platform. I have set up and published numerous books for myself and for clients, designed and produced logos, brochures, ads, collateral materials, and all forms of printed matter. I am also experienced in photo retouching and photography manipulation.
I am a very patient teacher and believe in a hands-on approach. I try to explain the capabilities of the different tools and methods of a particular software, I show you how to do something and then coach you as you do it yourself. I can either have lesson plans or tailor individual tutoring sessions according to what you want to learn.

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 been using Adobe Illustrator from its initial inception. It's a complicated but very powerful program. I have used it to create countless logos, trade show graphics, ads, and more.
I am self-taught and have been working with InDesign for 8 years. I have created numerous documents and ads with InDesign, but most importantly I have set up and sent to print more than 2 dozen books, from 100 pages to over 400 pages each. I have a proficient knowledge of the program.
I have worked with all levels of Adobe Photoshop since its inception. The most recent version that I have worked with is CS6.
I am a graphic designer so I work with Photoshop every day. It is a awesome program and I love teaching people the amazing things it can do.
