I’m George, a graphic designer, web designer, and web developer working in the greater New York Area. I am a certified K-12 art teacher of 7 years, with skills in illustration, acrylic and watercolor painting, and graphic design. In addition to my K-12 experience, I have worked with adults needing specialized instruction in graphic design, web design, web development, and acrylic painting. My passion for design starting in elementary school, where I was known to sketch and doodle in my notebooks while keeping with my academics with the inspiring of my art teachers. My portfolio and academic achievements allowed me the opportunity of attending a fine and performing arts high school, where I was able to continue cultivating my passion for design in the form of commercial art, graphic design, and illustration. After high school, I was awarded a full-time scholarship to William Paterson University, where I majored in Fine Arts with a concentration in Graphic Design and Education, K to 12 with a focus in secondary education. When l look back at my education, I realize I was fortunate and blessed to have the opportunities that I received. Because I had individuals in my life that encouraged me, had patience with me, and raised my optimism, it is because of the great teacher in my life that I am a teacher. These qualities that I saw in my teachers are the same qualities that I show to my students.

I have over 4 years of tutoring experience, working with secondary and higher ed level students tutoring for web design, painting, illustration. In addition to tutoring, I have over 5 years of teaching experience in elementary and secondary education levels. On Wyzant, I specialize in tutoring for graphic design, web design, digital marketing, advertising, and web development. These topics are broad and I do tutor for more specific lessons in topics such as WordPress management, the use of Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, and other Adobe Creative Suite programs and design principles in branding, UI, and UX.

As an educator, I want to make sure the knowledge I pass onto my students is meaningful, relatable, profitable, and understandable. To learn more about how I can help you as a tutor, please feel free to schedule a free consultation and after we can make you better equipped to design and create.

Good knowledgeable Tutor

George is a good, patient tutor who is good for someone like me who isn't computer savvy. He helped me to understand computer issues and he also helped me with my social media accounts. I look forward to working with him again!

All Good

George is attentive to my areas of interest as a beginner who is all over the place with questions. He patiently shows me how to correct line errors and how to better structure my code. He offers options for systematically addressing all of my concerns and does so while bearing in mind my most urgent needs. We have a plan moving forward with a few more lessons. Without hesitation I would recommend him as a good tutor. He is very knowledgeable on the subject.

Confident in recommending George!

I had created a website but gone in circles and made a mess of it. We have now cleaned it up, and in this lesson (my second) I created some pages. George is very patient and flexible. I was in a hurry to get started and he was very accommodating to my schedule. I am now going to try creating pages on my own and will call him when I have done as much as I am able. He is a delight to work with.
