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.

Drawing

As a Fashion / Technical designer working in the industry from freehand (including markers, watercolors to CADS) to work on the computer. I design for some of the big name brands to bring a concept to reality. My fashion Sketching has to be appealing, clear, and on point.

Macintosh

As a Life long Apple Macintosh user I started using the Macintosh computer products in high school, when I entered Pratt Institute I got more familiar with the MacBook and it's unique operating system. Now professionally I use the I Mac everyday at work in the fashion field. I am very comfortable with all the Macintosh products to share my knowledge to help someone else master the Mac.

Martial Arts

I am a Third degree black belt in the art of Tae Kwon Do, Korean Karate. This Martial Art is 75% feet and 25% hand work. I have been an active member of this Art for the past 25 years.

Painting

I have been Painting portraits and landscape type art for over 33 years. I started painting in Watercolor and acrylic mediums then moved on to oil painting, all done honing the classic impressionist style mastering it with my personal contemporary style. Because of my career (as a fashion designer) I am now considered a watercolor specialist for most all my designs are done in watercolor.

Sewing

As A master pattern maker, I correct and approve samples for production before their on sale at retail, for some of the biggest name brand Designer garments in the New York Fashion industry, names like Tommy Hilfiger to Polo Ralph Lauren. As a Technical Designer I wear many hats in bringing the designers concept
to life. In short I have to know all sewing and finishing techniques to fix and correct garments from swim wear, jackets, coats, Jeans and sweaters. All this was learned at Pratt Institute where I earned a BFA in Fashion Design.
