About Robert

My name is Robert and I am a professional tutor. I provide an in-depth learning experience in 4 subjects - Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop, CorelDraw, Film & Writing. I provide an in-depth learning experience filled with productive exercises, meaningful advice and plenty of direct support and encouragement. Please contact me immediately to begin the process. A little more about me:

I have been active in several professional organizations and my work has been awarded and regularly published by my employers and numerous clients. I received Bachelors Degrees in Art History (BA) and in Graphic Design (BFA) from the University of Georgia, Athens.

I also hold Master's Degrees in Information Design and Communication ( MS [Technical Writing] ) and in Library and Information Science ( MA [MLS] ), respectively, from Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia and the University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida. I am presently pursuing professional certification to work on film sets / on film crews through the Georgia Film Academy in conjunction with Gwinnett Technical College.

I have been working in the advertising, publishing, communications, and printing fields since graduating from college; I shortly thereafter secured a position with the advertising and publishing arm of a Fortune 50 corporate entity. I specialize in corporate identity, advertising design, publishing, digital pre-press, and professional writing for a diverse selection of clients - from global, Fortune 500 companies to local start-ups.

I have served as a part-time, adjunct member of the faculty at The Art Institute of Atlanta, where I guided students through an intensive study of Adobe Creative Suite 3 for the Macintosh operating system. My class, entitled Introduction to Design Applications / Software for the Applied, explored both the fine art and the applied science of creating digital pre-press images using Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. Please contact me immediately to begin the process. Thanks!

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 Photoshop

I taught at Art Institute of Atlanta; at AIA I was responsible for teaching (to incoming freshman and transfer students) an introductory course in Adobe Photoshop.

Basketball

I have successfully completed summer basketball camp(s) at both The University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill, North Carolina) and at Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Georgia).

Desktop Publishing

I have over 20 years experience as a desktop publisher (desktop publishing as in the creation of documents using page layout skills on a personal computer primarily for print).

My 20 years of experience in desktop publishing includes utilizing publishing software to generate page layouts and produce typographic quality text and images comparable to traditional publishing house typography and industrial printing.

My twenty plus years experience as a desktop publisher has focused mainly in the areas of printing, publishing, marketing and advertising since completing my undergraduate degree (BFA) in Graphic Design as well as my postgraduate degree (MS) in Information Design and Communication.

I also have one year of experience teaching desktop publishing computer graphics to undergraduate students at the Art Institute of Atlanta.

I have taken several courses in desktop publishing at The University of Georgia, The Atlanta College of Art (now SCAD Atlanta), American InterContinental University, The Creative Circus, and Southern Polytechnic State University (now KSU) in the pursuit of my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

Drawing

I have over 20 years experience working as an illustrator (utilizing my drawing skills) in the areas of printing, publishing, marketing and advertising since completing my undergraduate degree (BFA) in Graphic Design.

I also have one year of experience teaching drawing / illustration to undergraduate students at the Art Institute of Atlanta, in Atlanta, Georgia.

I have successfully completed several Drawing and Illustration courses at Auburn University, The University of Georgia, Georgia State University, and The Creative Circus in the pursuit and completion of my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a major in Graphic Design.

The titles of the drawing classes I have taken are Art Fundamentals, Art Structure I, Art Structure II, Art Structure III, Art Structure IV, Life Drawing, Lettering, and Illustration I.

Film

I have recently taken and passed with a grade of A, a class in Film (FILM 1100) through The Georgia Film Academy and Gwinnett Technical College. FILM 1100 is an introductory course in which students are introduced to film set terminologies, practices and protocols of actual film sets and film crews from the viewpoint of a production assistant. Students learn all the various roles of personnel present on a film set and assume those roles during days of filming. FILM 1100 is the first of 3 classes required by Georgia Film Academy certification. When the other two classes are completed, then I will have earned the certification and will be eligible for employment on film sets / film crews.

Graphic Design

I have over 20 years experience working as a graphic designer in the areas of printing, publishing, marketing and advertising since completing my undergraduate degree (BFA) in Graphic Design.

I also have one year of experience teaching graphic design to undergraduate students at the Art Institute of Atlanta, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Photography

I have over 20 years experience working in the field of photography. My photography experience includes shooting photographs using both traditional and digital cameras; as well as scanning, editing and retouching photographs utilizing computers, scanners and digital imaging software. My 20 years of experience in photography includes using photographic editing software to transform traditional photographs into raster artwork. I have spent many years using computer graphics software (mainly Adobe Photoshop) to create line drawing art (vector) from photographic art (raster).

Web Design

I have taken and passed the semester-long class Website Design TCOM 6135 at Southern Polytechnic State University. I have taken and passed other classes in web design / website technology at Creative Circus, Central Arizona College, American InterContinental University and at The University of South Florida.
