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 know how to use the pen tool in illustrator to create digital illustrations.

Adobe Photoshop

I am fluent in Photoshop and Illustrator and have a working knowledge of InDesign. I've designed book covers that were published using solely Photoshop and traditional illustration.

Desktop Publishing

I've worked as a graphic designer for several years, and I have a BFA degree in graphic design. Layout and arranging graphic elements for print production is second nature to me. I'm formally educated and experienced in this area. This is evidenced by my passing scores in Illustrator and Photoshop.

Drawing

I have a BFA degree with a graphic design major and multiple foundation classes in drawing and painting from New Jersey City University.

Graphic Design

I taught Graphic Design for about eight years on the high school level; two years at Newark Collegiate Academy and six years in the upward and college bound programs at Passaic County Community College. I worked as a freelance graphic designer for ten years. Examples of my work can be seen at Ojeanlouis.carbonmade.com.
