Subjects

Art

Adobe Illustrator,

Adobe Illustrator

As a graphic designer for large corporations, I use Illustrator to create vector graphics that can be enlarged to any size without losing resolution, logo design, signage, and simple animations for web and presentation use. Knowing Illustrator well is the basis for my professional design work because it is interoperable with Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat, and animation programs like Flash.
Adobe InDesign,

Adobe InDesign

I have worked in the corporate technical industry for over 15 years on marketing and training teams as a designer. InDesign is a great program for developing templates and documents with repetitive content or multiple masters. I can help you not only take your InDesign expertise to the next level but also teach you design principles for clean, modern documents or convert another page layout program (Quark, PageMaker or FrameMaker).
Adobe Photoshop,

Adobe Photoshop

I have worked in the corporate world (Panasonic, Microsoft, T-Mobile and Paccar) as a graphic designer on marketing and training teams. I learned the finer points of Photoshop from one of Photoshop's developers, Katrin Eisman in a studio workshop in Santa Fe, and have refined my skills over many years. My areas of expertise are photo retouching, masking and compositing (taking part of one photo out and/or combining with another photo).
Photography

Photography

I have done extensive photography and Photoshop in corporate settings for events and product shots, and my work appears in the archives of Microsoft, Panasonic, and Paccar. I am knowledgeable about the workings of professional grade cameras and how their functions translate to consumer cameras for such things as autofocus, programming digital settings, white balance, shutter speed, aperture settings, and lighting. On the post-processing side in Photoshop and other digital software, I teach how to simulate these functions after the shot is taken to maximize the impact of the image.

Business

Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I have been a user and teacher of Excel for many years in corporate environments to create databases of information, and to analyze that data with reports. I start with the basics of building spreadsheets with information, followed with writing formulas to use that information to do reporting, and then use graphics and formatting to present it in its best form. Whether the student is a beginner starting from scratch, or an intermediate student that needs to know more than building spreadsheets, I can take them to the highest level they need.
Microsoft Publisher,

Microsoft Publisher

As a corporate trainer with over 15 years of graphic design background in the business world, I can show you how to use Publisher to create printed pieces for fun or business. Publisher has great built-in artwork that makes it easy to make professional looking pieces set up to be in position for folding when you print. Learn to make your own one-of-a-kind greeting cards, brochures, fliers, menus, business cards and other fun projects!

McKenzey is very Patient with my Son!

We have only had 2 sessions already and I feel like my Son is getting back on track already. She's super sweet and really patient with my Son. I really like how she teaches the child...I really feel like he's getting the concept in the way she explains it! I'm really happy with McKenzey.

Adele, 3 lessons with Mc Kenzey

An incredibly helpful and highly talented tutor!

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about hiring an online tutor to help my daughter with an online college class. However, it has turned out to be a great experience! Not only did McKenzey make the process super easy, she immediately formed a great working relationship with my daughter. I noticed more confidence with my daughters knowledge of the material after the first lesson. She feels as if she is learning at a level she could have never achieved on her own. I am thrilled that we found such a helpful and competent tutor. My daughter can finally relax and learn instead of stressing.

Melanie, 5 lessons with Mc Kenzey

Deep knowledge + excellent teaching style

McKenzey was responsive and worked around my 'need it now' schedule. Face time was my priority and we covered many intro Adobe topics in just two hours together. I would recommend McKenzey for any age and any skill level to build Adobe Creative Suite knowledge!

Karen, 2 lessons with Mc Kenzey

Great InDesign & Illustrator tutor

McKenzey is a great teacher. Very patient and has a very orderly approach to teaching, but equally adept at answering on the fly or unrelated questions. I recommend her highly.

Pam, 10 lessons with Mc Kenzey

Amazing tutor

McKenzey is very helpful in rewriting my essay. I feel so grateful that I choose the right person who can answer my questions. She’s very approachable, and I feel comfortable talking to her. I highly recommend her! 👍

Christine, 1 lesson with Mc Kenzey

Good lesson with two impatient 5-year old boys

McKenzey came prepared to work with my twin grandkids. They are only 5 years old, so staying on task is difficult for them. McKenzey found an individual approach to both of them and taught them letters of the alphabet.

Tatyana , 27 lessons with Mc Kenzey

Excel tutoring

I contacted McKenzey because one of my college science classes requires many assignments to be done using excel. I had no idea how to use the program and was overwhelmed. McKenzey was very quick to respond and scheduled a session with me right away! She was on time, came prepared, was organized, kind, patient, and extremely thorough. I was able to do all of my assignments stress-free after just a couple hours together. I HIGHLY recommend McKenzey!!

Hannah, 1 lesson with Mc Kenzey

Easy to work with!

McKenzey is patient and knowledgeable and not only helped me with my assignments but gave great tips and tricks along the way that have proven to be very useful!

Sarah, 1 lesson with Mc Kenzey

Helpful Lesson

McKenzey clearly has experience using this program - not just as a tutor. She had a lot of functional information and design tips, and having her walk us through this program really helped.
