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