Phil was great to work with and if he didn't know the answer he was looking it up and finding the answer right then (or calling me the next day). We made tons of progress in just 2 hours of instruction. I would recommend him for Adobe program teaching. Thanks Phil!!!
Phil is fantastic. Has tons of knowledge, and knows how to teach. He is very kind, patient, nice. You won't go wrong picking him!
Phillip came prepared as we communicated our requests ahead of time and he was ready to make things go smoothly when he arrived. My wife and I got along well with Phil.
Phillip responded to my email promptly and was able to meet with my son the very next day. He was very thorough and helped my son tremendously. We will be scheduling with him again. I'm in the 4th quarter countdown.
Phillip was a great tutor. He is easy to work with and was a great listener. He also has a very good demeanor.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
