About Phillip

With over 15 years experience in teaching and training, I've experienced all different learning types. With that, my degree in Motion Graphics and my current teaching experience with the International Academy of Design & Technology, I believe I am uniquely qualified to tutor and teach a wide range of students, parents and individuals in need of these services.

I've been working professionally in the graphic design industry for nearly seven years and have experience in print production and various graphic design jobs dating back over 20 years. I'm ex-military and raised in the military as a child, so I have the experience of interacting with a wide range of cultures and races, learning to treat everybody with respect and dignity.

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

I earned my BS degree in Motion Graphics in 2007. I was heavily trained in Adobe Flash to use it in web design and motion graphics applications. Since then, I have used it at my jobs and as a freelancer, with most recently teaching it to students of IADT. Since may of 2010, I have been employed to teach students of the Graphic Design program a wide range of software, including Flash, for the purposes of learning animation and interactive elements of graphic design.

Adobe InDesign

While being trained in Motion Graphics, I had to also learn the basics of graphic design which included print design. I have had to use InDesign extensively through creating graphics and other printable media for home health care, food and beverage and various other businesses. Most recently, while employed at IADT Las Vegas, I primarily taught print design and even worked with students on layout and design of student/professional group projects for AD2 and AIGA - both professional organizations with chapters in the Las Vegas valley.

Dreamweaver

I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in 2007. While earning that degree, I had to learn Dreamweaver in order to prepare a personal website as a graduation requirement. Since then, I have worked extensively on numerous websites, primarily using Dreamweaver. Most recently, over the past 2 1/2 years, while employed with IADT Las Vegas, one of my teaching requirements was to instruct students on the fundamentals of design as it pertains to Dreamweaver. I am well versed in XHTML, HTML 5 and CSS along with content management systems such as WordPress.

Macintosh

While attending school for my BS degree in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics, I started using Macintosh as the preferred computer of the graphics design community. Since then, I have used Mac's almost extensively for the use of Adobe Master Collection. I have used it in the creation of graphics, web layout and print design. Most recently, I have taught students at IADT Las Vegas for the past 2 1/2 years, all on Mac's for the various graphic design software.

Web Design

While being trained in Motion Graphics, I had to also learn the basics of graphic design which include web graphics. Since 2007, when completing my studies, I have created and coded numerous websites and am comfortable implementing JavaScript and PHP into new or existing websites. I have also taught students at IADT Las Vegas over the past 2 1/2 years, including the use of XHTML, HTML 5 and CSS. I am also comfortable implementing WordPress and changing elements within its code/css via the editor function. I have even used, and taught how to use Photoshop for web design as well as free coding with just a normal text editor.
