About Sarah

I graduated from Parsons the New School for Design with a BFA in Fine Arts. I specialize in teaching Adobe programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. Additionally, I teach students how to set up their computers, iPhones, and iPads, install software and applications, troubleshoot problems, and use websites such as Squarespace and Wordpress to build websites. I am also an artist, and have much experience with self-publishing and book-making.

I have had over eight years of experience in graphic design and have taken many design classes during my studies at Parsons the New School for Design. I have designed books for a leading ceramics gallery in New York, and have tutored students for four years in Adobe programs including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. I have also worked as a technology coach for a client for three years, who I have taught numerous skill sets to and have helped set up her computer and other devices.

I have eight years of experience using Adobe Photoshop. Photography has been a significant part of my art practice for many years, and I use Photoshop on a regular basis. I also gained years of experience using the program when working at a gallery, where I processed images from photo shoots and edited them using Photoshop.

Please contact me if you would like to learn more about these skill sets or could use help learning about new technology. Looking forward to working together!

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 learned Adobe Illustrator at Parsons the New School for Design and have taught many students how to use the program with ease and confidence.

Adobe InDesign

I have had over eight years of experience in graphic design and have taken many design classes during my studies at Parsons the New School for Design where all of the design work was done in Adobe InDesign. I have used this program to design books for a leading ceramics gallery in New York, have and tutored students for four years in InDesign. I am very familiar with the program and use it on a regular basis, so I can teach students anything from the basics to more advanced features, as well as ways to set up documents in an efficient and effective manner.

Desktop Publishing

My work as an artist is centered around desktop publishing and self publishing. I am very familiar with the process of layout design, setting up text, images, and pages correctly to meet clients' expectations. I have helped design and publish many catalogs for a New York City ceramics gallery, and am also a writer's assistant. I have been assisting her in the desktop publishing and self publishing process over the past three years. I also have experience physically making books, from printing to binding.

General Computer

I have had many years of experience teaching others how to use computers and other technology such as iPhones and iPads. I know all of the basics as well as more advanced computer programs and can easily help students become more comfortable with technology.

Graphic Design

I have had over eight years of experience in graphic design and have taken many design classes during my studies at Parsons the New School for Design where all of the design work was done in Adobe InDesign. I have used this program to design books for a leading ceramics gallery in New York, have and tutored students for four years in InDesign. I am very familiar with the program and use it on a regular basis, so I can teach students anything from the basics to more advanced features, as well as ways to set up documents in an efficient and effective manner.

Macintosh

I have used a Macintosh computer for over six years. Using this type of computer is second nature to me, and through my use over the years, I continue to learn more about its functions and features and would love to share this information with students. I also have a knack for working on a Macintosh in the most efficient way possible (using shortcut key commands, setting up a productive workflow, etc) so these skills would certainly be helpful for someone who is not yet familiar with this platform.

Photography

My practice as an artist began in photography. I am very familiar with digital SLR cameras, both for photography and videography. I am adept at adjusting settings such as ISO, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, etc to achieve the desired image. Over my ten years of experience with photography, I have learned much about the medium and would greatly enjoy teaching others. Additionally, I tutor students in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom which are important components to know when becoming active with photography.

Web Design

I have had much experience with web design. I took multiple web design classes at Parsons where I learned basic coding. I am also very adept at teaching students how to use Wordpress and Squarespace to set up websites and blogs. I have created websites for multiple clients through these platforms. In total, I have four years of experience with web design.
