I have been an artist all my life. I attended charcoal drawing classes in elementary school and continued my art studies through middle and high school. Voted class artist my senior year. Attended duCret art school. I accept freelance work and continue to self-educate myself. In 2011 I returned to Brookdale college to achieve my AFA degree in the visual arts. I have been a counselor and mentor as well as a private tutor for many years. My work is diverse, and I can handle most mediums with ease. I enjoy sharing what I know and helping others discover their own creative potential. I teach art classes.

I have been published in several books, newspapers. I am a freelance photographer shooting events in NJ/NY and PA, including the past several years as official photographer for the Jerry Lewis MDA Labor Day Telethon. Other work include product photography and private parties, fund raising and concerts events. My current kit contains my PENTAX K-3 DSLR and I have been trained in traditional film processes as well. I teach digital photograph classes.

I have looked at the stars since my childhood. Today, I own several telescopes and with them I provide educational outreach at Star Parties across New Jersey. I also volunteer as a merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts. In 2010 I became Senior Qualified Observer at AAI Sperry Observatory which allows me to access to run two of the largest telescopes on the East coast. I teach astronomy classes.

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 Illustrator

I use Illustrator professionally for private clients to design logos and adjust artwork when needed. I have taken two typography college level classes using Illustrator for all my assignments.

Adobe Photoshop

I currently use Adobe Photoshop CS6 for digital photo manipulation and correction. I also create special effects and custom digital art for fun and for my private clients. Everything I do is on a Macintosh but I am very familiar with the software on PC platform as well. We cover basic tools and how they work, then we move into what you are looking to do with the software. I look forward to working with you.

Since 1975 I have been stargazing. I currently own six telescopes. I assist teaching astronomy at local elementary school Star Parties and since 2000 I have been a Senior Qualified Observer at AAI Sperry Observatory in Cranford, NJ.

Patient and thorough — Lawrence is extremely patient and helpful. He doesn't mind repeating the same topics over and over until I completely understand what it is i am trying to learn. I need things repeated to me over and over until it finally clicks and he is great with that. Definitely recommend him. I have learned all the basics of Photoshop with Lawrence in 2 hours! But I will keep going back to him until I become ...
