About Chava


Bio

I have about 15 years of experience in graphic and Web design, starting back in high school when I taught myself basic graphic design and Web coding.

In college, I discovered a love for teaching and eventually decided to pursue a Masters of Arts degree that would allow me to teach on the college level.

Education:

BS, Touro College, 2010, (Suma Cum Laude, Desktop Publishing award)

MA, Touro Graduate School of Technology, 2012 (4.0 GPA)

I have about 15 years of experience in graphic and Web design, starting back in high school when I taught myself basic graphic design and Web coding.

In college, I discovered a love for teaching and eventually decided to pursue a Masters of Arts degree that would allow me to teach on the college level.

Education:

BS, Touro College, 2010, (Suma Cum Laude, Desktop Publishing award)

MA, Touro Graduate School of Technology, 2012 (4.0 GPA)

Since receiving my MA, I teach graphic design related courses, in addition to being a designer, at a local college.

My accomplishments at the college include helping to start a course devoted to learning Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, which has become immensely popular.

I also received the nationally recognized Quality Matters certification for one of the courses I teach, and I have partnered with multiple non-profits for student projects.

In addition, I teach an intense 18-week class devoted to learning the Adobe programs for an online school.

I sincerely love teaching and am consistently thanked for my teaching methods - good communication, patience, lesson resources, etc. Also see my ratings and testimonials.

I look forward to teaching you!

Subjects

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

Adobe Illustrator

Illustrator is the primary program I use to create illustrated projects, including logo designs, a children's book, etc. It is truly amazing to be able to draw realistic objects with the precision that Illustrator offers. In addition to creating my own projects, it has been exciting to teach Illustrator, helping others to create "something from nothing".
Adobe InDesign,

Adobe InDesign

I use InDesign extensively for layout projects, including stationery, brochures, newsletters, catalogs, greeting cards, invitations, announcements, flyers, postcards, and even a children's book. Customers for whom I have done such work include both private persons and professionals. I also enjoy teaching InDesign and attempting to show my students how the program has greater abilities than Word.
Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is my favorite graphics program, perhaps because I really enjoy dealing with images. I use the program to create a multitude of projects, including flyers/posters, photo restoration, collages, animations, Web-related designs, etc. Teaching Photoshop is a true joy. My materials are created from scratch and are adapted according to the needs of the student. The amazement I often see when demonstrating the feats of Photoshop are truly awarding, and I hope to share that knowledge with you!

Chava was very nice and very patient with me.

We worked on setting up my accounts and getting my Apple computer ready, it really helped having her help me with this.

Very good tutor

Very good tutor adjusts the pace according to personal skills / needs, patient and very knowledgeable, she owns her material, makes you feel at ease. Great communicator and great communication responds timely to phone or emails. Thank you.

Bruno, 3 lessons with Chava

so patient & so knowledgeable

When she doesn't know something she searches out the answer. I am always so impressed with all the work she does in researching questions and her patience with repetitive questions and asking her to repeat things a million times is extraordinary. Learning from Chava has been fun & so incredibly productive. As I probably said before, Chava is a joy to learn from.
