I have spent the past 35 years as a working artist, with a main focus on graphic design, illustration, cartooning and PhotoShop work. I am also deeply versed in mythology and folk lore, an accomplished musician and for the past few years, a blogger for alternative education.

Ten years ago, along with my wife and a host of other parents, we started a school in NYC. As parent/founder, I have worked very closely with the staff and students at the school. I have conducted volunteer classes on a semi regular basis, and make it a point to know as many of the students personally as I can (the student body is a consistent 60 children).

My approach as a tutor is a non-coercive approach where the student's inclinations will direct the instruction. We can work together, having a free exchange of ideas, techniques, that hopefully the student can integrate into their understanding, creating a more holistic approach to learning about something they love. The main idea is to create an environment of freedom so that the student can make their own discoveries.

For software training, I assess the student's needs and work toward creating projects that will facilitate practice and quicker understanding on the practical use of the software.

I have had a 40 year career working as an illustrator and graphic designer, and I draw constantly.

Fantastic personality and dedicated to helping his students

Bruce was extremely patient & helpful . We worked with InDesign and he helped me build a website mockup which received tremendous praise from peers. I would recommended him to beginners, intermediate, and professionals wanting to brush up on their skills.

Inspiring guide with a wealth of experience

Bruce was a joy to work with. He has given me some inspiring and practical direction in my graphic design needs today. To have someone with his experience as a tutor was more than I could ever have asked for. Thank you!
