I have over 20 years in computer Graphic design/Illustration and Desktop Publishing. Master with Adobe software (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc.)

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.
I have over 20 years in computer Graphic design/Illustration and Desktop Publishing. Producing layouts for web and print using InDesign has always been an integral part of my business. I have produced many brochures, fliers, posters, etc., not only for many clients, but also for my own marketing.
I have used Photoshop professionally since it's inception in the 1980s and have grown with all of the program version iterations.
