About Glenn

I have taught at the Art Institute of Philadelphia College for over 30 years and also at Hussian School of Art College Philadelphia for 15 years. I want to be a tutor because I feel that I will enjoy it. I was a New Jersey School Board member for six years and helped maintain and create policy, I have worked with and for some of the greatest commercial artist and designers in the advertising field. Hundreds of my former students still stay in touch and ask for my mentoring.

I have developed a teaching process that has proven itself successful over the years. I explain what the subject is and what the goal(s) is/are. Next, I deliver the subject material and support the information with demonstrations, handouts, and one-on-one coverage. After this is complete I explain in a totally different manner what has been presented and accomplished.

Being an instructor at an art-based college is very much like being a tutor. It is not about lecturing 60 students at one time, Instead it is one-on-one training after topics of study are presented to a class numbering less than 20.

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 have been working in and with Adobe Illustrator from the time it was Illustrator 7 lol. I'm not a Photoshop guy cause that is not what the graphic design field is about. I'm Illustrator and InDesign. Please feel free to ask me any questions about working and learning in these programs.

Adobe InDesign

The best example of my understanding and qualifications to tutor InDesign is the following. I am senior faculty at the Art Institute of Philadelphia College. One of my classes is titled Digital Layout. in this class second and third year students are introduced to and learn Adobe InDesign CS6. the end goal of this class is the production of a 36 page catalogue selling no less than 100 products. During this class I supply the students with over 50 handouts that I have created to support my training. The handouts are 90% visual 10% text, which are easier to follow than textbook rhetoric. Students are instructed in creating documents, importing images, working with type, paragraph and character style sheets, saving files, and exporting files for print production. Samples on request.

Drawing

I am a professional illustrator by trade. I illustrate for Aramark, Pepsi, and other freelance clients. I am an instructor at the Art Institute of Philadelphia College and teach illustration/drawing skills in several of my classes. To be more specific in my Fundamentals of Design I teach by example and during an eleven week term my students draw over 80 drawing and these are based on my drawings, that are handouts, and drawings that are created on a dri-erase board (real-time). I have also taught at Hussian School of Art College with is a drawing based educational institutional system. I have samples of my illustrations for examination upon request.

Graphic Design

I am a full time Instructor at the Art Institute of Philadelphia College and have been qualified to teach Fundamentals of Graphic Design (foundations of terminology and the creation of graphic images based on research) , Collateral Design (the production of a group of client based work [graphics] based of the clients needs and a strong [graphic] design platform), Digital Layout (grid based production of multi page documents) , Advertising I, II, III, IV, and Introduction to Digital Design (turning graphic design images created in class to vector files). As an instructor at Hussian School of Art college I present the Adobe CS system as a graphic design platform.

Writing

During my main college years with Thomas Edison State College I took all of my classes via the mail. The classes at Thomas Edison required a minimum of 12 term papers for each class. Each term paper required a minimum of 30 pages and often times exceeded 110 pages. My 'A-' average over the years included classes such as: Social Gerontology, Parliamentary Procedure, Western Archaeology, Women and Men in American History, Introduction to Anthropology, Chinese History & Culture, Children's Literature, Worlds of Childhood, Managerial Communications, Thanatology, American Civil Rights Movement, Technical Writing, and more.
