About Ella Mae

During the time that I took classes at Bellevue College, I spent a lot of time helping the other students with the software and their projects. I also taught a few mini-lessons in the Introduction to Photoshop and Illustrator class when the instructor wasn't familiar with some tasks that the software can perform. One of my instructors took note of how much I enjoy explaining and assisting with software and asked my to apply for a job at the Academic Success Center. Although I have graduated from the Animation and Graphics program, I still tutor for Bellevue College, primarily in the Writing Lab.

As a writing tutor I help students with grammar of all types, with improving vocabulary, college application essays and anything else they have written, even personal projects like short stories, letters and poetry. I love learning about the learning styles of my regular students and seeing them go from confusion to understanding. Another great thing about tutoring is the questions for which I have to learn the answer. Continued learning is always rewarding.

If you want someone to walk with you through the process of a complex animation of graphics effect, or to help strengthen and add interest to your writing, let me know.

I am observant and patient. I make sure the student takes responsibility for their own writing as I guide the process with clear explanations of writing rules and concepts. I am also creative and look for fun ways to make writing enjoyable.

With a degree in Animation and Graphics I am always interested in other peoples perspective on these topics. I enjoy drawing out the creativity in others and I am always willing to stretch myself to discover new ways to use software and keep my own skills up to date.

Image manipulation has been a passion for nearly 2/3 of my life and I want to share that with others.

I am open to any relevant question, and this is an excellent platform that allows students to describe their needs ahead of time. Ask me anything and if I don't have the answer, I am always eager to learn the answer so I have more knowledge to share with you. There are few things as important as learning, and I am always willing to support it.
