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.
Hi, I have over 20 years of Photoshop experience. Photoshop is a wonderful tool for making your pictures great.
First, I can teach the basics - sizing and changing resolution, cropping, adding type, image adjustments, etc. Then there are also the secrets to success with Photoshop. For example, color correction is the most important. Yellowish or bluish skin tone? How do you bring the color balance in line... whites need to be white. Removing imperfections and sharpening fit into the category of correction. There’s also a method of lightening areas of the photo without washing out already properly lit parts of the picture. And finally, I will mention the option of combining parts of two pictures to make one good one, such as swapping heads or even eyes so that a person’s eyes are not closed.
It's a chance to really enjoy Photoshop!
As the video instructor at Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, MA from 2009-2011, I taught middle school students in iMovie, Final Cut Pro and Amadeus (audio editing) making narratives, documentaries, commercials and experimental films. It begins with an idea, some storyboarding, acting, editing, and adding music, type or narration. My background includes teaching filmmaking for an arts/education program in Washington, DC to being a local video,/media/events producer for corporate accounts such as Colgate-Palmolive to having my films in festivals throughout the US. It's a chance to express one's creativity and gain practical and technical experience in making videos… or if you just want to improve your home movies and vacations videos.
