About CJ

Hi! My name is CJ. I am a self-employed photographer who is continually educating myself on many subjects. Currently, I am tutoring those who need help with Photography, Sign Language and Photoshop.
I am willing to travel within reason for a tutoring session with you. Online tutoring is also available, so no one is out of reach.

As a self-employed photographer, and someone who Signs, I am willing to take on anyone who needs extra help honing their Photography skills, and/or Sign Language skills. I am willing to help with the basic understanding of photography, composition, camera settings. From starting out, learning your gear, simple navigation of Photoshop, I can help! I enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who are curious, interested and/or ambitious, want to improve family photos, outgoing or simply trying something new for the heck of it. We can work together, regardless of what you want to learn, sign language, photography, or both!

High school and college students welcome, as are beginners, mothers, and anyone who wants to venture out and try something new. Learn to Sign! Learn to create better photographs!

That said, if you are in need of a sign language or photography tutor, please reach out. I will be happy to help you gain a better grasp on the subject you were smart enough and curious enough to begin to learn. Until our session, good luck and take care!

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 Photoshop

Hello, Welcome to WyzAnt. My name is CJ, and I am a photographer. I use Photoshop to edit my images on a daily basis. One rule of thumb with photography is...You can't edit a bad image. Therefore, one must learn to create a good image to be able to work with it in any photo editing program. Photoshop is an editing software program that allows you to enhance the images you capture. Photoshop is not a miracle worker. Meaning, if the image you captured and want to edit is bad to begin with, Photoshop is not going to fix it. Fixing an already blurry image in photoshop is not going to work; however, you can simulate DOF in an image by adding blur. Anyone working with an editing software program must understand the programs have limitations. They are not magic. If you are aware of this, and understand photography...you are ahead of the game and can learn to easily navigate Photoshop. I am happy to help anyone learn how to navigate PS, CC, Bridge. Your first lesson in photography is...Read the manual that came with your camera. Second lesson, PS: Trial and Error, because there are 100+ ways to do the same thing in PS. You must learn a few, play and pick the one that works best for you. That said, Happy Learning-Contact me if you need me!

Hard Of Hearing

I am HH (Hard of Hearing). Deafness runs in my family. I was born hearing, learned to speak English and lost my hearing much later in life when I was adult. While I knew some sign language from my youth, I had to educate myself further and learn more sign language as well as cultural norms in the Deaf Community. I would make a great tutor or helper for hearing parents in need of help with their Deaf/HH children.

Photography

Hello, Welcome to WyzAnt! My name is CJ. I am a working photographer and tutor. I have been photographing for years. My resume includes assignments with the Erie County Pepsi-Cola Marching Band, as well as various performers and artist such, as Lady Galaxy. My specialty is Portraiture and Event Photography. If you are looking to improve your skill set or just starting out, I can help you! Tell me what you want to learn or need help grasping, and we can work together to achieve your goals!

Sign Language

I am qualified to tutor in ASL (American Sign Language), umbrella term "Sign Language" because I am a HH (Hard of Hearing) person who communicates daily through use of this recognized language. I am familiar with the grammar, which is visible through facial expressions, as well as the differences between the different types of Sign Language. In addition, I was born hearing; therefore, I can speak clearly without others misunderstanding. My speaking skills are at 100%, as are my Sign Language Skills, making me the perfect candidate to tutor someone seeking sessions in the art of Sign Language. I am also fun to work with, making the sessions more enjoyable. If these reasons do not qualify me to tutor in the subject of Sign Language, I don't know what does.
