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 Flash

Adobe Flash is a Vector based program, which is powerful enough to develop full length animations and visually dynamic websites. The program has been used from web-banners to high definition print work.

Although the programs interface can be daunting don't let this stop you when exploring new ways to adapt to visual candy within the web. Flash uses similar tools to it's coherent sister "Photoshop". I have used Flash for over 5 years and would be very happy to pass on my talents to you.

Take a look at my videos and see what Flash has to offer.

Creative themes which can be created in Flash:

Classical Tweening: Animation
Shape Tweening: Animation
Time manipulation of digital images: Website
Sound and voice over: Website and Instructional
Powerful web banners: Internet
Powerful ActionScripts Development: Internet

Adobe InDesign

Adobe InDesign is a very powerful layout and publishing tool. It can provide the user the power to develop full text novels to highly dynamic magazines. The program can also build interactive media featuring on PDF brochures. InDesign is a diamond in the rough, the layout templates can help beginners all the way to a seasoned pro. The program will work with the interchangeable files through the adobe suites. This will offer many new tools for the writer, developer, photographer, and the interactive designer.

I have been certified through Lynda.com to enable students to learn the basics and and overall techniques of getting a project book published.

Autodesk Maya

I am currently a Professor of 3D animation at the Art Institute of Las Vegas. I have extended experience with Maya Mudbox as well as 3DsMax. I have two masters on in Digital Media 3D and one in instructional design. I also will obtain my certification of modeling and simulation in Dec 2016.

Drawing

I am currently a Studio Art Professor at Daytona State College teaching and developing new and dynamic curriculum for drawing I, II, and III.

The courses I have developed offer a close studio environment which allows communication and growth. Drawing is not simply placing a line from one point to the next but a creation of the heart. Art allows one to develop a closeness with nature as well as technology.

Drawing is the basis for art and can offer a great tool for reporters, researchers, and engineers. Without a basic thumbnail sketch how can a new subject be explained? This is how I teach offering freedom of expression as well as inspiration. Drawing is the great sustainable art form it has been used since 30,000 B.C.E. and I am sure it will continue on for light years to come.

Macintosh

I am currently a Professor of 3D animation at the Art Institute of Las Vegas. I have years of experience with the Mac iOs.

Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows the most popular OS (operating system) for independent user. The personal computer has become more than viral, it is our friend and sometimes our living.

I have used Microsoft since the days of MS DOS and 1982 Windows 1.0, I have seen it grow and expand. The ease of using this OS can become some what of a hinder to say the least. Sometimes as new users we want to over think programs and steps. However, when the developers built the system they only wanted the easiest navigational steps to be used. Whether it was to fix a problem or explore new information Microsoft wanted it to stress free.

If you are having problem with security or simple home networking such as wireless routing and or printing then I can help.

Also if if you want to learn more about what your computer can do for you then please send me an email and lets get started.

Photography

I have a master's degree in Digital Media, both motion graphics and graphic design. I have manipulated digital media in both pixel and vector formats. I have the understanding of all Adobe Suite software and can help with 90% of digital camera usage and editing. Everything from macro shots to usage of DSLR, Diffusers, Depth of field, ISO usage and metadata. I can also help compositing and uploading edited and non edited digital images, both still life, pure and film.
