Parsons School of Design (Fashion Design)
For the past 10 years I have worked in the fashion industry. After graduating from Parsons School of Design I began working for the biggest department store in the world. I started as a wovens assistant and worked my way to Senior Designer where I not only ran a $70 million business but trained and managed the entire design team. Some of my responsibilities included trend and color forecasting, overseeing the brand for cohesion and travel for shopping and visiting factories. During my time as a Designer I have become extremely proficient in Photoshop and Illustrator. I use both programs to create prints, repeats, flats, store layouts and croquis. In my private time I use both programs to create illustrations; therefore, my knowledge is quite vast.
This year I began teaching fashion at the New York School of Design. I have always had a passion for teaching and I love the challenges it presents me. I work hard to ensure my students understand the fundamentals of the industry as well as strong knowledge of the technology needed. I currently teach three classes: Essential Fashion Terms (an introduction to the industry class based on vocabulary), Portfolio and Photoshop/Illustrator.
I have a calm personality and I spend a lot of time and energy to ensure I am responding to each student's needs. I believe it is important to speak to my students on their level so they can absorb the lesson. Please contact me for more info or for lesson plans.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
