About Blaire

I am a public middle school teacher of 9 years and have also worked in the graphic industry in varying sectors over about 6 years of full time professional work. I have maintained my contact with the industry through the yearbook at my school the past 5 years. I have taught Art, Reading, Journalism, Language Arts and Business. I am certified in many areas of teaching by the State of Florida as well. I love learning and discovering and experiencing how business works. I can focus on just acquiring skills or also develop a foundation for love of a subject as well as learning itself.

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 InDesign

I have worked in the business industry, and in education. I have also added industry certifications through certiport testing for the following programs: Word, Excel, PowePoint, Outlook, Photoshop and will be adding Illustrator and InDesign soon. These certifications were added to appease education officials, and while informative, they are not 100% indicative that one knows software in a truly usable sense. I have been using InDesign for many years (2000), and before that I used QuarkXPress. I currently use if for employment as well. I have produced many documents, some over 100 pages from InDesign.

Business

I have worked in the business fields of: retail, engineering, advertising, graphics/photography supplements, photography, manufacturing, screen printing, illustration (college), insurance and farming mostly, but not completely, in a position of marketing and/or graphics. Additionally, I have recently begun teaching business in the public school system, and have that area of certification on my teaching certificate through the State of Florida.

Desktop Publishing

I have worked for 6 years post-college exclusively on desktop publishing programs. After entering the education field, I continued my work in this by managing and producing a yearbook for a school of 1500 students for five years.

Graphic Design

I have worked full time and part time in the field, specifically print media since 1999. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Mississippi University for Women. I also have business ed on my FL professional teaching certificate and have taught Photoshop for two years in the public school system.

Macintosh

I have worked on and with mac computers since 1998, on which I was learning the graphics programs for work. Thankfully, I still have access to them on a daily basis, along with PCs.

Microsoft Windows

I am well versed in computer systems, and alternating between Macs and PCs all of my working life. Additionally, I have helped to maintain computers for use in the classroom including student and teacher computers.

Photography

I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from my undergraduate college, which required many painting, drawing and photography classes for graduation. Samples available upon request. Additionally, I have used my own photography to complete many of my graphics/marketing jobs over the past 15 years.

Volleyball

I played volleyball in college (MUW) at the division II level, and also coached for 2 years at the high school level. Rigorous training was required to get myself into the college program via year round travel ball and my own high school team (1991-1995). Later, as a coach at Northview High School during 2005-2007, I learned coaching methods that give me the foundation needed to assist in training plans with conditioning, practice and playing. I have overcome injuries, and have the experiences to know what is the difference between complaining and true injury. I still use these skills I learned today.
