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.
I have been working in Photoshop since 1995, gradually progressing from Photoshop 5 to the current updated versions. Photoshop is my everyday tool box which I open for various projects with comfort and joy.
Having a Fine Art background and experiencing all traditional drawing and painting media helping me in developing my unique personal approach to using a program. I teach Photoshop to college students and people who just want to be able to advance their personal and business creative skills, some of my students never touched Photoshop prior to taking my classes.
The vast diversity of my students requires my special attention to the level of their knowledge and ability to understand and follow, which I have been successfully applying in my teaching practice. I always communicate with my students in the way they easily can understand and relate to. I get very positive feedback and multiple ongoing returns throughout my teaching experience.
I have an extensive training in Fine Art subjects, based on Fundamental Art theory and Traditional Art Education. My drawing study begun when I was 6 years at that time I was living in Soviet Union which had serious Art Education system. Since then I have been continuously studying drawing, practicing and applying my skills professionally after graduating from three colleges acquiring Associate, Bachelor and Master's Degrees in Fine art. I have been teaching drawing, painting and other traditional art media for the past 30 plus years to the students of all ages. I always get very positive feedback from my students and personally observe their progress based on the methodology I have been developing and implementing in my teaching practices. I teach architectural perspective and composition, model drawing, still-life and human body animation. My professional portfolio contains hundreds of hand drawn renderings developed for business proposals, interior and exterior design presentation, and book illustrations.
My extensive experience and knowledge stems from many years working with traditional film photography applied in book design and production. Digital Photography has been heavily involved in my Graphic Design professional work, hence my expertize in this field is contingent to the success of my professional career. There is no task too simple or too advanced that I would not be able to assist.
