Bio

I have been teaching and sharing my knowledge in design software for six years. When I teach, I open my student, company staff and colleague to the endless possibilities of the software by breaking it down to the basics of functionality and understanding. I have since extended this approach to my teaching of languages and elementary math and found out that this approach in collaboration with patience has proven to work best specifically when I teach elementary math and students of younger age...

I have been teaching and sharing my knowledge in design software for six years. When I teach, I open my student, company staff and colleague to the endless possibilities of the software by breaking it down to the basics of functionality and understanding. I have since extended this approach to my teaching of languages and elementary math and found out that this approach in collaboration with patience has proven to work best specifically when I teach elementary math and students of younger age groups.

While it is easy to master a language, software or even math just to get by, understanding the logic, format and principal behind each topic or software will truly make you a rock star, then you truly start to have fun learning and become a problem solver.

It is my goal to make all my students rock stars and the problem solvers among their peers.

Adobe InDesign

I have been working with the Adobe InDesign software for almost 10 years now as an Architect with a professional degree. I have a Master's Degree in Architecture with a solid 16 years of professional practice. So I have an excellent hand on all the software used in the design industry as well as the graphic design industry. I have been teaching the software for 2 years now and I love using my professional experience to simplify my tutorials for all my student. I teach them the real life application as well as the technical application of the software. This method helps my student get ahead and renewed their interest in the software.
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

My area of expertise in Photoshop is photo editing, 3D realist rendering, presentation packages, and material mapping. I have over six years of using Photoshop in the design industry with concentration on making 3D rendering from 3D max and Revit rendering look as real as possible. I also do material texturing for use in other design and rendering software.
Architecture

Architecture

A house is a space, we live all our lives in and it can be simply intricate or complicatedly mind blowing. I use architecture to solve problems with designs and in real life. My area of expertise are: Residential designs, Commercial, Retail, Religious, Aviation and Healthcare Design. I use the design process along side with the practice of architecture to teach students to appreciate the process of basic life needs and open their eyes to the joy of design. To achieve this, I am very well vars in design software that expedite the design process such as AutoCAD, Revit BIM and 3D MAX. I am also well rounded in design development, construction drawings and 3D animation design. I create concepts and presentation boards for clients to help convey the idea of the design.

Very knowledgeable in Revit.

Tess had a great understanding of the program and was very patient with me. She was very helpful and I am sure that I will be using her again! She helped me with creating a ceiling soffit, a raised floor and also helped me better understand how to create a parametric family.

Kara, 1 lesson with Tess

Very Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

Tess is very organized and clear. She answered my questions and I felt very confident. She also helped me out with changing some settings on my new computer so I was able to make some of the characters bigger and see them better.

No one better!

I can't explain how much of a relief it is for me to have Tess tutor me on AutoCAD Architecture. She is passionate about making sure you understand each and every step. She is patient, thorough, and was even willing to accommodate when a scheduling conflict arose. Best of all she explains the system in a way that would benefit any learning style. I am currently pursuing an associates degree in Architectural Engineering Technology and there's no better feeling knowing you have a tutor like Tess to simply the otherwise complex! Thanks Tess great session!

Very patient

Tess familiarized me with auto cad software . I felt a little more comfortable after the lesson. She walked me through my software issues. I would recommend her to my friends.

Eugene, 2 lessons with Tess
