About Noel

I am a patient, dedicated and versatile tutor with expertise in Design, Art & Art History, Film, Writing, English, and Mathematics (grades 6-10). I have worked with professionals as well as students from Pratt, Parsons, SVA and other schools ranging from junior high to college. I am committed to helping people realize their full potential.

Prior to earning my Masters degree in Product Design from Pratt Institute, I majored in Film at Vassar College and wrote and edited screenplays and short stories. I graduated in the top 1% of my class from the High school of Music Art, where I received honors for both academic and artistic achievement.

I am particularly adept at writing, language and scholarly analysis. I earned the highest award for Advanced Placement English in high school and received consistent high marks on essays, term papers, and theses throughout college and graduate school.

Aside from my academic background, I co-founded a .com business and have experience working as a designer and illustrator. I sometimes offer advice and guidance to post-graduates who are thinking of starting their own ventures.

My computer software skills include Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Microsoft Word, MS Powerpoint, Wordpress and more.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how I can help. My hours are very flexible, and I can accommodate your schedule. I look forward to hearing from you!

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

I have been working with Illustrator for over 6 years and have given lessons in the subject to art students as well as adult professionals. As a freelance designer and illustrator, I have used the software to create logos, technical drawings and illustrations for children. I received training in Illustrator as an MFA student at Pratt Institute, where I applied my knowledge of the application to product designs and presentations.

Adobe Photoshop

I have been a Photoshop professional for over 6 years and have given lessons in the subject to students at Parsons and Pratt Institute. As creative director for an entertainment website, I use the software regularly to create page layouts, ads and marketing materials. I also worked for several years as a photo editor/ retoucher for an architectural/ interior photographer. I received training in Photoshop as an MFA student at Pratt Institute, where I applied my knowledge of the application to product renderings and presentations.

Film

I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Film from Vassar College, where I was trained in both the practical and theoretical aspects of the craft. I also have several years of freelance experience in the industry, working as a screenwriter and in development and pre-production for independent films. As a private tutor, I have offered guidance to students from The School of Visual Arts (SVA) on script writing, storyboarding and editing of short films.

Taught me Powerpoint from the basics to the most advances. — Noel basically created a Powerpoint presentation to my specifications, teaching me every step along the way, patiently explaining every keystroke and making sure I could do most of the inputting myself. Very kind and gentle and a problem-solver. ...
