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've been working with Adobe Illustrator almost every day since its introduction, so I am comfortable with it and can teach it with patience and ease. I can help you create logos, illustrations, layouts and graphics and teach you the various tools you'll need to complete your design project.

Adobe InDesign

I am qualified to teach Adobe InDesign on a Mac because I have been a practicing graphic designer for over 20 years. I have a complete knowledge of Adobe InDesign, and use it on a daily basis to design and crate files to send to printers, publications, web designers and online print services. Additionally, I am an art instructor and private art tutor and have managed a staff of designers.

Adobe Photoshop

I am a graphic design professional and have been working with Photoshop for as long as it has been in existence. I can teach the application from a very basic beginner level and up. Our lessons would consist of getting familiar with the tools and menus, and then working on "real life" projects, customized to your needs.

Drawing

I have a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University. I have been working as an art director in the field of graphic design for over 20 years. Drawing and painting have always been something that I have done in addition to my design work. I teach art at a private school, with several non-profit organizations and the local Adult School. Additionally, I tutor privately and have been employed as a painting instructor by a national franchise company that provides art parties and events.

Graphic Design

I am qualified to teach Graphic Design on a Mac because I have a BFA in Communication Design from Syracuse University and have been a practicing graphic designer for over 20 years. I have a complete knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, and use them on a daily basis to design and create files to send to printers, publications, web designers and online print services. I can help with setting up Facebook pages as well as LinkedIn accounts. Additionally, I am an art instructor and private art tutor and have managed a staff of designers.

Macintosh

I am qualified to teach Mac applications and operating systems because I have been a practicing graphic designer for over 20 years. I have a complete knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I also regularly use Adobe Acrobat and create files in all of those programs to send to printers and online print services. Additionally, I am an art instructor and private art tutor and have managed a staff of designers.

Painting

I have been working as an art director in the field of graphic design for over 20 years. Drawing and painting have always been something that I have done in addition to my design work. Additionally, I have been employed as a painting instructor by a national franchise company that provides art parties and events.

Web Design

I am qualified to tutor in designing for the web because I have created many prototypes for websites. I also have designed buttons, web graphics and web page layouts. I have consulted with other web professionals to produce many successful websites.

Lauren is brilliant with Adobe Illustrator. She answered all of my questions and was able to expand on each one, teaching me more than I thought I would learn in an hour. Highly recommended.
