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 not only taught many classes in Adobe InDesign at accredited design schools, but I also wrote class syllabi and furnished teaching materials and training to other instructors. I have used InDesign as a practicing design professional and Creative Director for many years.

Drawing

I have a BFA degree from The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California with a major in Illustration. I have taught many classes in drawing and perspective at accredited design schools. My work has appeared in many publications and ads over the years including a children's book entitled A book which I co-authored and created all the illustrations for is available on Amazon.com.

Graphic Design

I have a BFA degree from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California, one of the top ranked design schools in the nation. I have taught design as adjunct faculty at The Art Institute of Seattle and was the first Chair of the Visual Communications Department at IADT in Seattle. While there I also wrote complete course outlines and requirements for 2 new multimedia design degrees. I have created design and advertising solutions for many Fortune 500 companies including Disney, Lego, Mattel Toys, Chevy, McDonald's, Unilever and Paramount Pictures. I have managed teams of Designers ranging in size from 4 to over 50 persons.

Web Design

I first learned Web Design and HTML coding in the mid 1990's and have created, built or redesigned dozens of websites since. I have been the Director of Creative and User Experience on several sites, all of which were the largest websites in their respective categories at the time and spanned Social Media, Games and Advertising, Finance and eCommerce. You can see samples upon request of some sites, online, tablet and mobile apps etc. on my portfolio.
