Approved subjects are in bold.

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

Adobe’s Illustrator software is a very helpful tool used to render images and to create vector art. I've used Illustrator to illustrate catalogs and children’s books, layout interior plans and architectural elevations, render style patterns and to create t-shirt designs, greeting cards and word art. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and eighteen years of experience working with Adobe Illustrator software.

Adobe InDesign

InDesign is a software application used for digital publishing projects. I have used InDesign to layout booklets, brochures, flyers, grocery circulars, ePub books and print book layouts, postcards, instruction guides and term papers requiring charts and graphs! I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design, and thirteen years of experience working with InDesign software. InDesign file sizes are often large, but it is an irreplaceable resource because the InDesign software easily imports and combines pictures, video, XML files and text!

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is an imaging and editing tool. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and eighteen years of experience working with Photoshop. I mostly use Photoshop to enhance photographs, design posters, signs, advertisements and to prepare images for use on the Web or on a website. Photoshop can also be used to render special effects, 3 dimensional forms and to enrich architectural interiors and elevations.

Desktop Publishing

Desktop Publishing is the process of creating refined page layouts for print and the Web. Today, most software applications have been designed to include DTP capabilities and this allows individuals, businesses, and organizations to print their own print collateral, newsletters, books and newspapers in-house. In the design profession, creative artists are trained to implement desktop publishing best practices.

I've employed desktop publishing best practices for nearly all of the eighteen years of my professional practice because it is such an important element in marketing and advertising.

Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver is a software application used to create dynamic web pages for a web site. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and thirteen years of experience working with Dreamweaver. I use Dreamweaver to design and develop websites.

General Computer

A computer is a workstation platform that accepts input from human operators or "users" and produces output. This exchange of data is processed by the computer through code or data that the computer reads, manipulates and or stores. Peripheral devices allow information to be entered from an external source, and allow the results of operations to be executed.

I am a knowledgeable computer user and can help you become more proficient in using your computer. Another computer service I provide is to help to install and upgrade your computer’s RAM or memory.

HTML

HyperText Markup Language or HTML tags are used to format content for and on the Internet. Link a page to any other page, resize images, add color to your website–HTML code & CSS are your building blocks on the World Wide Web. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and years of experience working with HTML and CSS, HTML is an exciting, code writing experience.

Macintosh

The Macintosh is a computer designed and developed for Apple Inc. The first Macintosh was introduced by Steve Jobs on “January 24, 1984”. It featured a mouse and a graphical user interface. Some consider the Macintosh more “user friendly” than a PC. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and have been using the Macintosh since its introduction in 1984.

Microsoft Excel

Proficiency in Excel is a requirement in many career areas. Excel is a great software tool to use to calculate, organize and summarize general data, collect sales results and generate impressive charts and tables. I mostly use Excel for invoicing but in my past, I have used it to calculate cost and profit charts. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and ten years of experience working with Excel, I find it to be a great software to work with.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Proficiency with PowerPoint is often a requirement in many career areas, and it is the most popular presentation software next to Macintosh’s version called Keynote. I personally use PowerPoint to create slideshows of portfolio work for presentations.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and years of experience working with PowerPoint. These slideshow presentation software applications perfect any lecture or presentation!

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is an indispensable software application, and along with Excel; it is a requirement in many career areas. I work with Microsoft Word on a daily basis, from an everyday use as a simple word processor for generating text, to composing a simple eBook. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and years of experience working with Microsoft Word. I find Microsoft Word to be an irreplaceable software to have as part of my software application’s library.

Video Production

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Design and five years of experience working with video production software. One of the video production software applications I work with is iMovie. iMovie is a Mac OS X software component of the iLife suite. iMovie helps you create video footage from artwork, photo files or digital camera recordings. With the software’s editing tools you can edit your video clips and enhance the footage with color correction, titles, speech, music, sound effects and transition slides. The video you create can then be exported to YouTube or embedded into a website.

Web Design

With a professional degree in Design and thirteen years of experience in Web design and maintaining websites, I'm eager to help you with your website and the process of creating a webpage.

A website is composed of pages linked together that are viewed on the Internet from a user’s Web browser. A website's structure is the verbiage, images, Web graphics and interactive elements. This support material and how you approach the layout of your website's contents creates the site’s unique form and design. The plan of what images or support material along with the functional elements and structure of a webpage or website is a wireframe.

I also offer tutoring support in WordPress, if you want to create a WordPress website, and I offer tutoring support in Adobe's Muse, if you want to create a website with Muse.
