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 Photoshop

I've been using Photoshop since version 2.0.5 and I am now on CS4 version 11. I taught classes in Photoshop 5.5 for Gateway in 1998 for photography. I use it constantly for web design, web graphics, photo editing, general graphics, and many more usages. It is an amazing piece of software and one that I spend the most time working with. My passion for Photoshop is coupled with my passion for webdesign. I do not use or tutor Photoshop Elements at this time.

General Computer

As a self taught computer user, I progressed into being a Corporate Trainer due to my ability to convey the best methods for learning and how to utilize the PC effectively. Taking advantage of a computer's resources and treating it as a tool can best benefit your time and abilities to use that tool.

Microsoft Windows

As a corporate trainer for both CompUSA and Gateway from 1994-2001, I have many hours of teaching Windows classes under my belt. Starting with Windows 3.1 I taught 100s of people how to navigate a graphic user interface. Windows 3.1, Windows 3.11 for Workgroups, Windows 95, Windows NT4, Windows ME, and Windows XP. I currently use Windows 7, and used XP, past Windows Vista. Windows 7 is the best Windows OS to date; bar none.
