About Nancy

For me there is nothing more rewarding than being a creative, or helping others achieve the same feeling through sharing my knowledge. The love of Good design is something we all have, and knowing how to do it yourself and find your place in this creative world, is such a reward.

I fell in love with teaching because I had a good teacher, who taught me that learning design skills was practice, passion, and problem solving. And tools like InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, were no different than scissors for a hairdresser, drills and saws for a carpenter, or flour and eggs for a baker. Once you know what to do with them, and what you CAN do with them, the options are endless and its just about being inspired and dedicated to practice.

I love teaching beginners, young or old because the desire to learn something new and then achieve it is so rewarding. When teaching a beginner, I use a self teaching method I was taught by my teacher, where we find something designed that inspires you, a graphic poster, a logo or a manipulated photograph in a magazine, and then we build a process together to re create it. In design you always start with an idea, and an idea of what you want to achieve as a result, and work backwards. Once you can look at a design and know what the designer used to create it, its like finally understanding a secret language.

I have experience in brand development, logo design, layout, retouching and photo manipulation. I have worked in large agencies around the world including Ad agencies like Ogilvy and BBDO (ever seen Mad Men?) and am now in New York running my own creative agency and developing big ideas for clients of all sizes. I have taught design programs to beginners and college students around the world, and am looking to do more of this because it makes me happy and keeps me inspired.

Very patient and flexible. I work on client projects in the early hours, but am available for tutoring most week days from 12:00p.m. till 7:00 p.m. EST - I offer online tutoring for beginners, making hours even more flexible depending on what state your located in. Im Happy to teach in Person if your in the Brooklyn New York area.

Congratulations on being inspired - Now, Lets take that to the finish line.

Please feel free to reach out. I'm Looking forward to working with you.

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 InDesign

I have a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communications and have a lot of experience in layout design for print. I have a large understanding of how InDesign works.

Adobe Photoshop

I use Photoshop on a daily basis and am extremely familiar with teaching it, especially to beginners. It's such a great tool and a lot less difficult to learn than most people think. I have a lot of patience and would love to help others enjoy it as much as I do.
