Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Illustrator

I use Adobe Illustrator for work and have five years of experience.

Adobe InDesign

I learned Adobe InDesign at Brooklyn Technical High School where I studied it for a year; I have also studied it for a term at Purchase College. I have two years of experience laying out a newspaper using InDesign.

Adobe Photoshop

I have used Photoshop to put together a satiric magazine. I know all of the ins and outs of the program, from the basic like cropping, to the more advanced like color balancing and image manipulation.

Anthropology

I have studied anthropology and sociology at college and received grades of A in all coursework. I have experience conducting ethnographies. I also know how to research and write essays on anthropological topics.

Film

I have extensive experience working with film including cinematography, video editing, and directing. My film portfolio includes a documentary commissioned by and aired on Channel 13, and a short film exploring the boundaries of offensive humor.

Macintosh

I have been using a Macintosh computer for the past 11 years and am quite proficient in the use of an Apple machine.

Microsoft Excel

I use Microsoft Excel on a daily basis for work and am very familiar with the program.

Photography

I studied digital photography for a year at Brooklyn Technical High School, both the technical aspect such as f-stops and ISos and the design aspect such as composition and the rule of thirds. I studied black and white 35 mm photography for a term at Bennington College, where I learned how to develop film and make prints.

Video Production

I have a full working knowledge of Final Cut Pro and have edited many videos on the program.
