If you need help in adding pizzaz to a presentation or learning how to make a photo look better, I can help out with that. I like to help people think out of the box and bring out their creativity. I have my BFA in Graphic Design and have been a full time Graphic Designer for 15 years, working at ad agencies and in-house marketing departments. I have worked on large ad campaigns and smaller projects. I am familiar with creating and designing marketing materials, brochures, ads, logos, posters and more.
I have taught middle school students in my home about graphic design and related software. I am able to tutor in the Adobe programs like Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign from the very basics to the more advanced levels. I also can help in building PowerPoints from scratch or teach how to create ones from a template. I believe in demonstrating how to do something and then letting the student have the hands-on experience. I find it is important to encourage exploration in the different programs but also to include helpful guidance along the way.

InDesign is not Publisher! It is the ultimate in layout programs. It is used by the pros and considered one of the industry standards for creating layouts. I have been using it as a full time designer for over 10 years. If you are wanting to learn the basics or more advanced techniques of layout, I can give you lessons or help you out on a project. InDesign is a powerful program that brings all of the best Adobe products together to create dynamic layouts.

MAC or PC? What a great question! I have worked on both and still love the MAC the most. I am a graphic designer and, of course, the MAC remains my friend. I have worked on MACs for 15 years and currently am on the Leopard OS. I can help out with the way programs work on the MAC or general overviews of how the MAC functions. Once you learn the MAC, the question between MAC or PC will be easy to answer!
