Hi my name is Simon and I'm originally from the UK so please excuse the strange accent.
I have been working in the graphics field in various industries for over 20 years, and started using Photoshop at version 5.5. I got my start working at a printing company and then quickly moved on into web design. For the past 10 years I have been working in the automotive materials industry creating textures and prints for car interiors at the OEM level. In my spare time, I enjoy photography and playing music, also having experience teaching guitar.

I am excited to share my knowledge of Photoshop and Illustrator from a large variety of applications, so that I can help others in realizing how powerful a tool the software is, and the many ways a task can be accomplished. My goal is not only to help students work through their graphics projects, but to teach best practices, the background fundamentals and also setting up the software to function optimally.

In addition, I have experience with Adobe Creative Suite as a whole, and have been using a plethora of graphics and office related software in a business environment for 2 decades. I have often been called upon to teach colleagues and new hires and in addition create training documents in a variety of subjects.

Thank you for looking at my profile, and please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions, or to set up a tutoring session.

I have been using Photoshop for over 20 years, in various different concentrations.

Business

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

Throughout my 20 year career I have used Excel for a great deal of data analysis, manipulation or project tracking. I have created many macros in order to automate formatting repetitive data sets saving hours of valuable time.
Microsoft PowerPoint

Throughout my 20 year career I have used Powerpoint for both corporate presentations and training slideshows. My strength in teaching this particular software is knowing how it reacts on different computers and how to ensure that the presentation you design, looks the same way across all platforms.

Music

Guitar

Guitar

I have been playing the guitar for over 25 years and in that time performed with multiple bands. These have seen various levels of professional success including winning battle of the bands competitions, opening for several national touring acts and being interviewed on radio. One of my specialties is to analyze technique in great detail, and as a teacher break down the individual parts of playing an instrument, to firstly simplify the process for the student, but also to create a strong foundation so they can improve all aspects of playing to become an accomplished performer. I believe in hard work to accomplish goals, but also encourage students to have fun, enjoy the process of learning, gain confidence to play in front of others at any ability level and grow in all areas of music. My goal is to give students the tools to not only learn to express themselves through music, but to enrich their lives with the ability to communicate with other musicians and listeners and encourage positive relationships through the language of music.

A really great tutor, saved my day!

My recent session with Simon covering Illustrator was great! I really appreciated the fact that he was very patient, and easy to talk to! Even when needing to go over the same thing more than once and ask the same question over and over. He was thorough, clear and very knowledgeable. I would definitely go back.
