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 printed my own images and have done graphic design for The Botanic Gardens, The Chicago Bears, and several private clients. I have taught Photoshop and Photoshop elements freelance since 2005. I also have a BFA from Columbia College in Photography with honors. I was awarded a free pass to Photoshop World in Boston after a letter of recommendation was sent to The National Association of Photoshop Professionals by my design teacher at Columbia. I was one of only 5 students nationwide to have this honor. I am still a member of NAPP.
