About Jean

I am an artist and award winning graphic designer. I love to share my knowledge of computer programs, art and photography as well as reading and researching. It is my belief that having fun with visual elements and hands-on creation are important aspects of learning any subject.

Once we plan individualized projects that will be enjoyable and challenging, you will be surprised how quickly and easily you will learn! You will be given tools to learn on your own when you are ready. Do you have a school project that you want to present in an exciting professional way? Or just improve your reading and vocabulary?

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable space to work on drawing, painting or book-making projects, I have an art studio in Long Island City. Alternately, I can come to your place and teach you at your home computer.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

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 worked with desktop publishing for over 20 years, first with Quark and then InDesign. I have created numerous books, brochures, posters, magazines and templates. I studied at Cooper Union and have an MFA from Tyler School of Art. I've worked for many magazines (Artforum, Vanity Fair, Newsweek) and publishers (Penguin, Random House, Simon and Schuster). I expanded my knowledge of InDesign by working in an office with a team of other designers. My teaching method involves carefully evaluating student needs, and designing projects that they choose and feel motivated to complete.

Graphic Design

I have been a graphic designer for over 30 years. I studied at Cooper Union and have an MFA from Tyler School of Art. I have extensive experience in commercial digital publishing (Daily Beast) and marketing. I've worked for many magazines (Artforum, Vanity Fair, Newsweek) and publishers (Penguin, Random House, Simon and Schuster). I am relatively new to teaching, but enjoy sharing my expertise. I learned many of my skills on the job and in a team environment. My teaching method involves carefully evaluating student needs, and designing projects that they choose and feel motivated to complete. My goal is to challenge and not overwhelm!

Macintosh

I have used a Macintosh computer at home and on the job for over 20 years. I use it for graphic design projects, social networking and for creating and organizing my artworks.
I enjoy teaching others how to use the tools the Mac provides and get maximum enjoyment from it. I use the many of the programs that come with the Mac such as iPhoto or mac mail as well as Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Indesign, Bridge).
I have used PCs (Windows) as well so I can help people who are making the transition.

Phonics

I am an artist and graphic designer with a strong love for reading and poetry. Phonics was one of my favorite subjects in elementary school. I have a BFA from Cooper Union and MFA from Temple University. My teaching experience with children is through giving art workshops and studio visits on Governors Island. While not trained in teaching phonics, I bring creativity and patience and enthusiasm to my tutoring. I am able to engage young people with a variety of hands-on activities so learning is fun.
