About Chita

I've been a technology trainer for over 20 years in Adobe programs, and I am an Adobe Certified Expert in Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.
Since 2009, I have been a member of the faculty at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, MI., where I teach Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat Professional.

I won't try to dazzle you with how much I know, but in turn will teach you what you need in order to work effectively with any of these programs.
You'll learn real-world application of the program features. And, most importantly, you will learn what you want and need in order to accomplish your goals.

My students have ranged in age from high-school age to 87 years of age.

My approach will take you through learning material that is relevant to your needs, as well as the ins and outs of topics that are important to you.
You will become familiar with the "what if's", shortcuts, surprises, and tips that help you work smarter, faster and be confident in the your knowledge of your newfound skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am qualified to tutor in InDesign because of the following reasons. I am an Adobe Certified Expert in InDesign and have been since year 2000.

I beta test InDesign for Adobe years before applications come to the end user. I have taught the program at Schoolcraft College for 4 years, and have taught the program since InDesign 1.0.

During my tenure at Adobe I was a Web Specialist in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat, Photoshop, PageMaker, and FrameMaker, working with the international online community.

By understanding the features in InDesign, I can customize training to the topics that will help the individual or group most.

Adobe Photoshop

I've been teaching Photoshop since version 1.

Desktop Publishing

I have worked in the Desktop Publishing field since 1990, when I got my first Mac. Since then I have created numerous documents: newsletters, brochures and manuals, for clients and myself.

I have created the layouts for several books, designed and created posters, calendars, web pages, as well as worked with clients on designing the interior text and graphics contents of their books. This included editing and formatting text and creating or editing graphic images.

I have a bachelor's degree in Architecture and am a Certified Interior Designer, where we are taught the elements and fundamentals of design. These transferable tools helped greatly in the field of Desktop Publishing.

As a current instructor at Schoolcraft College, and consultant, I work regularly with graphic programs like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat to create training and supplemental documents.


I have worked with the Macintosh computer since 1990, doing everything from CAD drawings to newsletters.

I currently own Apple devices like Laptop, iPad, iPod, iPhone, Monitors, WiFi devices.

Since 1993, I have been a member of MacGroup-Detroit Apple User Group, which is the largest Mac User Group in Michigan. I am a weekly blog contributor of software and hardware reviews for MacNews, as well as a presenter at MacGroup-Detroit meetings.

I create video tutorials explaining how to use the Mac operating system apps and iOS software/apps.
