Experienced Free Lance Graphic Art and Web Designer with over 20 years of experience in Office Administration.

Currently, I am working towards my degree in Web Development and I am familiar with several technologies used such as php, MySQL, Asp.net, Ajax, IDE - Netbeans, Glass Fish etc.

I use video tutorials and hands on lab exercises to first teach the software program's interface and capabilities of the program. I then assign related real world projects to re-enforce the material taught so students can demonstrate the skills and competencies required.

I have tutored in a working college lab and always enjoyed helping others more than working on my own projects. I have a passion for design and creativity and love to work with others who share the same drive and passion as I. I always feel rewarded when seeing my students' accomplishments when they are challenged and achieve their goal.

Thank you for your consideration.

Great Tutor!

I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome of my tutoring session with Sandra. She was able to help me understand my computer and devices with a professional, hands-on approach. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing help as I did.

Tutor responded:

Thank you Leon, It was a pleasure helping you. You caught on very quickly. I am confident you will be able to utilize your resources to the fullest now that you have a better understanding of your devices. If you need any additional help with image editing or any other computer questions feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist.

Adobe Photo Shop tutoring

Sandra was excellent and very patient with someone who did not know adobe photoshop well. I learned a great deal from her. She was really helpful to me.

Very good experience

Sandra P. is tutoring my daughter in web design. My daughter likes her and she will continue to learn with Sandra to improve her knowledge in this field. Everything was professional from the scheduling the lessons, punctuality and the lessons per se (e.g. from verbal teaching to using different media tools). Overall we are happy with Sandra P.
