About John

Dear Student,

My background covers over thirty years and includes hands-on work done before the rise of the computer. You will receive expert tutoring from a respected industry leader in publishing, print production and graphic design. A solid, hands-on approach clears away misconceptions, mis-practices, and many missteps in the desktop publishing practices. Experience includes work done for consumer products, ad agencies, and corporate marketing communications departments. I have won several American Graphic Design Awards, as well as ad club merit awards.

Most recently, I won an AGA for a book cover. I have also created several web sites from scratch and won an AGA for one done for a local retailer. Many class projects are customized to the student and their goals. Certain classes are focused on design and its importance in the thought process. You will learn real world shortcuts and valuable insider approaches to solving complex problems. Focus will be placed on your needs and timeframe. For instance, say you are confused about which RGB colorspace works best for print. I will show you the differences between all of the RGB colorspaces and which one will work best for you.

I hope to be given the chance to help you. I know you will not regret it and you will come away with the knowledge you need to better understand your given circumstances.

Sincerely,

John D.

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.

Desktop Publishing

I have an Associates Degree in Graphic Arts and a certificate in Desktop Publishing. I have experience tutoring one-on-one and have created my own syllabus.

Web Design

I have taken non-credit course in web site development in 1996. In 2012, I took three courses at Holyoke Community College in HTML, CSS, and Dreamweaver. I have created several web sites from scratch using HTML, CSS, Adobe PageMill, Adobe SiteMill, and Adobe Dreamweaver, along with Photoshop and Illustrator web graphics.
