I've been a Apple Macintosh user since the late 80s (remember the floppy disc?). I have a freelance print/web design and production business, and have been self-employed with this business since 2006. Prior to this venture, my work experience was at advertising agencies, design studios, and in-house graphic departments. All in all, I have 22+ years experience in the field. I can also say that most of my software and hardware knowledge is self-taught.
I have several years experience using Adobe InDesign, and over 20 years experience using Adobe Photoshop. Currently, both programs are being used daily (and intensely) in my business.
Hopefully I can help you improve your skills in these applications. It would be a pleasure to meet and work with you. Hi all,

He was a fantastic tutor! I couldn't have had anyone more patient and helpful. I will use him again for more tutoring. I had one week to learn InDesign to layout a magazine. We spent a lot time together and during that time he offered tips, short cuts and had me confident in no time.
Just the help I needed with packaging my booklet to share with my colleague. He walked me through it within 30 min, instead of me struggling with the Adobe Help site for hours.
Gregory is a very friendly, good tutor. I believe he knows a lot about Apple and its software, but unfortunately, all the new changes that Apple has made has left both of us baffled sometimes.
First of all, I found Gregory to be a very honest and upfront individual with a great understanding about the tools and the complexity of Photoshop.
If I had a question about how to achieve an objective, he never hesitated to show me ways to do things simpler.
Layers and tools like the Clone tool can be quite complex, but using "ruler guides" can really help this process go much easier.
Of course, he also drilled me on saving often when doing image manipulations, but just as important, to also make a copy of a layer in case I were to really mess up and then cannot go back to my original. Obviously this is a well learned lesson for most people who begin with Photoshop. In other words, "an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure".
Last, but not least, he is very reasonable in his prices, when obviously he is as talented as people who charge much more for the same work.
I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn Photoshop!
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.

I am a freelance graphic artist/production artist and have been using desktop publishing software (on the Macintosh side) for most of the 22 years that I've been in the creative business.
I have been using a Macintosh on a full-time basis for more than 20 years as a graphic artist, production artist, systems administrator, and web designer. I've watched the operating system grow from "System 7" to the various flavors of macOS X. From the "Mac Classic" all-in-one, to the current MacBooks. I am proficient in the OS itself, as well as the various apps that it comes installed with. I also have experience with iOS, and how the two connect with each other.
