About Jimmy

I am a semi-retired businessman and creative graphic designer with extensive experience in the creative process including direction, artwork production, web and print production. I have owned small and large agencies and have hired, trained and managed employees, clients and now students.

I have extensive knowledge on both Mac and PC platforms. I have over 15 years experience working with Adobe InDesign, and I am proficient in the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, PhotoShop, InDesign, Acrobat Professional); Quark Xpress; Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint), QuickBooks and many other utility and business applications.

I can help you create communicative visual tools that capture attention by informing, focusing and inspiring the target audience to take action. Whether you are a student needing to prepare a portfolio or new/existing business that needs tutoring in marketing and overall business practices, I can help you organize, plan, implement and manage the process from start to finish.

My approach to teaching is task oriented. It begins with understanding the student's short-term and long-term goals, identifying their skill level, software/hardware requirements and assigning lessons, tasks and timelines to facilitate successful results. I like to foster independence and enable the students to solve problems on their own as I actively guide them by asking questions that help students think things through rather than telling them what to do. I monitor the tasks and ensure that the student adheres to the demands of the assignment helping them reflect on their successes and identify the strategies that worked and did not work.

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 InDesign

I have over 15 years experience working with Adobe InDesign. I started with Adobe PageMaker until InDesign was introduced to compete against Quark Xpress, Understanding the full capacity of InDesign will benefit my students whether they are creating a website, print brochure, catalog or form.

Macintosh

I have been working on Macintosh since the day they came out. I have a complete understanding of the operating system and hardware requirements. I have serviced Macs from networking to rebuilding and beyond.

Microsoft Windows

I have been working on Windows since version 3.0. I started as a Service Bureau back in the early '90's and have worked Windows and Window based applications since then.
