About Jessie

Through twenty years of document design and storytelling experience, I have developed a singular philosophy: to be an excellent designer, one must persuasively communicate technical ideas to the professional and the layperson alike. I am obsessed with the translation of complex concepts into concise, focused, intuitively understood stories.

As a marketing, document, and urban design professional, I've used InDesign to create books, proposals, reports, brochures, posters, signs and much more! Over the years I've had the pleasure of introducing my coworkers, staff, and friends to this powerful tool. My favorite aspect of mentoring people in InDesign is the moment when they stop thinking about how to use the program and become wholly focused on designing. At that moment, InDesign is no longer a barrier to their goal, it has become a second-nature tool.

Communicating your ideas effectively depends on your ability to write persuasively and accurately. My writing and editing experience ranges from academic essays to marketing copy to creative writing. I have a strong understanding of the power of language and can work with you to articulate your ideas clearly.

InDesign is my tool of choice for communicating stories and I'd like to help you become a confident InDesign user as well. I have been using InDesign in a professional context for over 15 years and have eight years of experience in training people at the beginner and intermediate levels. I am patient and happy to tailor my tutoring to your specific goals.

Let's get learning! Whatever your level, I am happy to work with you at your pace to improve your InDesign knowledge and confidence. I look forward to meeting you.

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.

Very knowledgeable — I needed help with setting up a table of contents, sections and numbering in order to finish preparing a long document for printing. She instructed me how to implement these techniques in a clear and detailed manner. I highly recommend her for InDesign tutoring. She really knows her stuff! ...
