About Steven

As for page layout programs, I taught myself PageMaker (many years ago). Then I learned Quark XPress and finally, InDesign. I've been using InDesign for about 7 years doing page layout in magazines, directories and newsletters for a mid-size business-to-business publisher. I have over 20 years of using Photoshop in photo re-touching, image manipulation and animated banner creation. I have experience in private tutoring in Photoshop and training personnel under my direction in InDesign. In my initial sitting with a student, I like to get an idea of how much s/he knows about the application, the basics of what the application is used for and any experience s/he may already have. Then I like to get an idea of the uses to which the student will put their training so as to focus on key elements in the training process. I teach to use both drop-down command menus as well as keyboard shortcuts, and I welcome questions! As for page layout programs, I taught myself PageMaker (many years ago).

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 Flash

I spent 3 years at Access Intelligence, Inc. creating Flash animated banners for a number of their websites.

Adobe InDesign

As Director of Production at Access Intelligence, Inc., I have been working with InDesign - laying out magazine pages, 600-page directories and newsletters at since 2006. I also have trained others how to use InDesign and been one of the main troubleshooters for this application during the same period.

Algebra 1

I went to private elementary and high schools in St. Paul, MN.
The courses I excelled in were Algebra I & II, Trigonometry and Calculus.
I come from a family of teachers. My dad, uncle, sister and brother were all teachers in subjects ranging from chemistry, English, algebra, to computer science. I've been doing private tutoring for decades now.

Graphic Design

I worked for 10 years in graphic design, laying out magazine, directory and newsletter pages using both QuarkXpress and Indesign. I've created web pages using Dreamweaver and animated banners using Flash for several websites. I was Director of Production including art directors and page layout artists for seven years at a mid-sized B2B publishing company.

Microsoft Excel

I've been using Excel for years in tracking which companies I need to send XML files to and when, to create tables of manufacturing instructions to send to our printing when printing 1000's of our magazines and to track the progress of printing projects for which I was project manager.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've been using PowerPoint to create presentations on a professional level for 25 years, including in these industries:
• Heating & Air Conditioning design/build
Business-to-business publishing
• Amazon Online (presentation decks)

Spanish

I began learning Spanish in 1981, a year after marrying in Honduras, Central America. Since then, I’ve written Spanish speeches and delivered them to audiences in attendance of 70 up to 1,000. Aside from Honduras, I've traveled to and spent time in the following countries:
Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Panamá, Costa Rica, Mexico.

Great Tutor- Goes Above and Beyond — Steve has been a great tutor to teach me power point presentations. Steve brings a lot of knowledge and experience. Steve is very patient to work with. I felt like I was starting from scratch in my learning curve but Steve jumped right in and made things easy to understand. I'm so grateful for the work he does outside of our tutor session to research ideas and sharing of all he gains. I would re ...
