2011-2012 American Intercontinental University Atlanta, GA Maters in Education 2005-2007 Art Institute of Atlanta Atlanta, GA Bachelor of Fine Arts in Media Arts and Animation 2003-2005 Columbus State University Columbus, GA Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science I specialize in creative technology courses for kids and teens.
My sessions are for beginners who want to learn the basics of the Adobe Suite and intermediate students who want to learn next-level skills (animation, UI & UX design). I teach with patience and focus on hands-on experience. As I provide lessons, I expect you to work alongside me as we do a screenshare and to ask any and all questions along the way.
I am a very patient person, and celebrate that everyone has a different learning style.
Award winning graphic designer and illustrator with 20 years experience. I have my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in Secondary Visual Arts. Licensed Massachusetts Art Teacher from prek-12th grade and have experience at the college and professional level.
I am an IT professional with certificates in print and web. I like to work one on one with my students are my clients to get a clear understanding of what they're looking looking for or need. I have done many graphic design pieces for my family and professionally and also love teaching it and using this offer to help people with their needs.
I'd like to think about this tutoring as if we're members of a team, both improving and moving to success. Together, anyone can do anything. When teaching, I believe it's better to think of your teacher as your friend, as your teammate. That's what I want my students to feel like. Totally comfortable to ask me questions, think of new and creative ideas, and succeed in those ideas.
I can concentrate best one-on-one but if it is necessary to work with multiple students in a session, I can work with that. I can work across platforms (Windows and Mac) and can teach online. I have always had a strong pull towards teaching because of my interest in learning and knowing more.
My teaching is based on fun. I for me it was all about hands on learning. I do, we do, you do. I've been teaching for many years and I know what works and what doesn't. I was taught 3D the wrong way, then with all the experience I have I try to teach the way I wished I was taught.
I offer a first consultation for free to talk through what you're looking to do with design. We can have a discussion about the kind of work you want to be doing, and what kind of skills you're looking to learn. Each week, I'll give you a project to work on based on your level. You'll complete the work outside of our meetings.
My class is either based on general lessons meant to introduce you to the functions and tools of Photoshop, or, if you have a specific project in mind, we can undergo a collaborative workshop experience to generate your project while simultaneously developing your skills.
Through the use of visual demonstrations, current art and design pieces, ads/videos and movies I allow students to discover how a powerful presentation of an image or product can make a memorable visual piece. My classes are geared towards High School graduates applying for college and college students preparing their professional portfolio.
Whether in group or individual basis, I start with group general lessons regarding the basics of the subject before turning the table over to YOU. After a point, YOU will learn what YOU WANT and make a project out of it! I switch to various methods of teaching to reach as much of the class as I can.
I believe in a learn by discovery process where the teacher guides and directs the student in the proper way of using software while the student feels that they fine the easiest path to solving their problems using the tools they have available.
College educated and with two decades in front of and behind cameras I have practical and creative use of film style and digital cameras. It is a talent to know what an excellent image is and it is an art form to create an image.
- AAS degree in design engineering - Practical applications with guidebook interactions and references for a general outlook prior to intricate working knowledge.
I offer graphic design lessons to those who are new and beginning to learn the subject. Whether it's illustration, branding, fashion, or packaging design, I want my students to branch out in all fields of design. By teaching the basics of programs in Adobe Suite, I will teach color theory and typography, which enables one to prepare for any field.
Since I know design pretty well, my approach is to take what a student knows and help them develop their talents to their full potential. I am here to answer questions, talk on different theories and methods that will help develop a student into the artist they want to become.
I have a deep understanding about art students, their nature and mindsets. Know i know how teach them from drawing out their stories and originality to leading them executing ideas and visualizing them in presenting plateforms.
My teaching structure is based around the student's experience level. I can customize each experience and strive to make sure students feel like they can move along at his/her pace. We will go over design principles and fundamentals, as well as how to deal with clients and price your work.
My teaching methodology is to achieve step by step any idea that is proposed. In photoshop it is almost impossible not to be able to do what we want. It usually depends on the quality of the image. It is a magic tool that allows us to modify the image to our liking.
I am an artist and have been an assistant Professor online for over 16 years. I have specific lessons each week to help you develop your color skills. You will need to know Photoshop well enough that we can focus on color together. I start with basics and move toward more complex uses of color.
I'm a friendly professional graphic designer who enjoys teaching Photoshop orientation, basics and techniques for high school through adult students. We will begin with workspace orientation, then complete a pre-determined project together to cover basic Photoshop workflow, functions and tasks.
I'm currently a sophomore at Texas State University,and I'm also an alumni from a well known art program in San antonio, Texas called SAY Sí. I'm a digital artist I love to make contemporary art. I would like to teach elementary,middle school and freshmen and sophomore in high sschool; the ways I make my art and to hope they can grow from my techniques to eventually create their own techniques.
Student-Centered Approach to Learning My approach is to creates and environment where teachers and students play an equally working role in the learning process. The teacher's role is to tutor and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is achieved by formal and informal forms of assessment.
My approach is to take a step by step approach while making sure the student is following along by asking frequent questions.
I hope to provide a hands-on experience that will give students independence to create their own materials and have confidence that they look great!
I hold my BFA in Graphic Design. I started out as a fine artist, evolved into a graphic designer, studied photography, and learned new technologies so I would be able to apply everything I've learned in life about art into aesthetically visual pieces. If you want to improve your eye or skill set in a given area of design, I am here to help you achieve it.
My approach is fully geared and based on my student's knowledge, experience and goals. Autocad is such a vast software serving a lot of different fields therefor certain skills aren't necessarily important to everyone. The session is usually divided into 2 - 3 parts: 1. Learning new commands, techniques, and concepts. 2. Applying what's learned. 3. Answering student's questions.
I was trained in electronics while on actice duty in the U.S. Air Force. I worked under a Top Secret security clearance on nuclear drop weapons. I attended Miami University at Oxford, Ohio. I am CompTIA A+ Certified. I recently recieved a Secret security clearance for purposes of working on TSA computers at local airports.
I base each lesson on what students need to know to grasp the basics of the subject. After covering the basics I move onto more elaborate subject areas. I am also willing to customize lessons to best meet the needs of my students.
To be sure of the quality concerning our teachers and their lessons, we collect the reviews of former students.
These reviews are authentic and guaranteed by Superprof.
