English:
Proofreading

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Adobe Illustrator

I use Adobe Illustrator on a regular basis, in conjunction with InDesign, to create layouts, advertisements, etc. It's essential in my design of logos and for the recreation of graphics that are too small and need to move from raster to vector.

Adobe InDesign

I have worked as a professional graphic designer since 2000, founding my design and illustration business in 2010.

I use Adobe InDesign on a daily basis to create layouts, advertisements, etc.

Adobe Photoshop

I have worked as a professional graphic designer since 2000. I use Adobe Photoshop on a daily basis, in conjunction with InDesign, to create layouts, advertisements, etc.

Drawing

I have worked as a professional illustrator since 2008, founding my design and illustration business in 2010. Drawing skills are the foundation for any successful illustration.

I have a B.A. in Design with concentrations in graphic design and illustration from San Jose State University, where I learned the fundamentals of drawing. I completed classes in basic, representational, beginning and intermediate life drawing.

Graphic Design

I have worked as a professional graphic designer since 2000, founding my design and illustration business in 2010.

I have a B.A. in Design with concentrations in graphic design and illustration from San Jose State University.

Painting

I have worked as a professional illustrator since 2008, founding my design and illustration business in 2010.

I have a B.A. in Design with concentrations in graphic design and illustration from San Jose State University, where I learned color theory and basic painting skills, which complemented my later illustration coursework.

I've also completed three painting classes at the college level, in addition to SJSU.

Proofreading

As a graphic designer, proofreading is the critical, final step I take with every project before it's presented to the client. A careless typo seriously affects how a design is perceived and can make the difference between approval and rejection, no matter how beautiful and effective the graphics may be. I'm available for proofreading and editing of all things written.

Good English Tutor

John is very helpful with proofreading essays when it comes to proper grammar, and having clear language. He is also willing to answer questions after the lesson. I was much more confident turning in my essay after our lesson.
