About Lee

Hello!

I tutor both Astronomy and Photography, the subjects with which I have a deep, rich experience. Additionally, I also tutor classes in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom.

I have been a commercial photographer for over forty years, specializing in fashion and editorial portraiture. I am deeply fluent in both analog and digital photography processes. I have also taught photography at the secondary and post-secondary level for at least thirty+ years. There isn't much I haven't seen, or don't know how to do.

Additionally, I have a Master's degree in astronomy, a science with which I have been involved my entire life; it is my true avocational love, and I love communicating to others the wonders of the night sky. My special gift is in making difficult concepts simple and enjoyable for any student.

I am also fluent as a certified online educator, having been a part of a small team (in a corporate environment) that developed the first online, rich media art school. That school now enjoys an enrollment of thousands. You can feel confidence in hiring me as an tutor.

I would love to apply my different areas of expertise to assist you in meeting your academic or avocational goals.

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 Lightroom

I bring over 30 years of analog photography as a working professional and now almost 20 years of experience with the tools and workflow of digital photography to the classroom.

I started with Adobe Lightroom while it was still in beta, prior to version 1.0. I can assure you that my knowledge of, and fluency with, this software has grown along with the software itself - right up to the current version. Whatever your level of expertise, I can assist you in developing an even deeper level of understanding and a more intuitive grasp of this remarkable photo workflow tool!

Adobe Photoshop

I bring over thirty years of analog photography, as a working professional, and now almost twenty years of experience with the tools and workflow of digital photography to the classroom. Though the tools have changed, the concepts of clear communication utilizing images have stayed the same, as has the necessity of fully understanding the tools with which we make those images.

I started with Adobe Photoshop while it was still in beta, prior to version 1.0! I can assure you that my knowledge of, and fluency with, this software has grown along with the software itself - right up to the current version of Photoshop CC. Whatever your level of expertise, I can assist you in developing an even deeper level of understanding, and a more intuitive grasp of this remarkable software tool!

Astronomy

I received a Master's degree with Distinction from the University of Western Sydney, AU. Though my degree covered many areas of concentration from Astronomy 101 to Astrophysics, my interest has always focused on better astronomy education. For instance, one project I authored was a complete, online Astronomy 101 course. The class utilized rich media, the Internet, virtual and real observing projects and intensive class discussions on a specific, online, learning platform to meet curricular outcomes.
I believe I have a very expansive, deep professional's grasp of astronomy concepts - and know how to best communicate, and, of course, teach from that same body of knowledge. More importantly, I have an amateur's deep love of the night sky, which comes from a lifetime of observing, and learning, avocationally. I can help you!

Macintosh

I have used Apple's Macintosh computers since its inception - 1984. As a commercial photographer and designer, the Mac quickly became the centerpiece of my media-rich business. As a technology director at the post-secondary school level, I had responsibility for hundreds of Macs, plus peripherals - printers, scanners, external drives, networks. As a Corporate VP for classroom technology, I assumed management responsibility for the technology at 21 schools, including thousands of Macs. I worked directly with Apple and Adobe in the development of machines and software for the post-secondary art school environment.

Photography

I have been a commercial photographer for over 40 years, specializing in fashion and editorial portraiture. I have also taught photography at the secondary and post-secondary level for 30+ years. I am equally fluent in analog and digital processes.
