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.

Desktop Publishing

I am a highly experienced newspaper and magazine editor who has edited and designed entire publications single-handedly using such tools as Quark, Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and others.

I also have a certificate in graphic design from a vocational school. Plus, I managed a popular website for which I was responsible for managing all of the content, photos and page formatting.

Macintosh

I own a Mac desktop and have worked on Macs as a newspaper and magazine editor for more than 15 years because I was required to perform desktop publishing duties.

Writing

I am a veteran newspaper and magazine editor and published author, as well as an educator for grades K-12, college students and adults who wish to improve their command of the English language.
