Private Adobe Illustrator Teacher

Having spent 6 years in Architecture school, I have engaged in multiple research and design projects where I developed a number of multidisciplinary skills some of which are AutoCAD, Rhino, vectorworks, and Adobe (Illustrator - Photoshop - Indesign). Within the first few lessons of introduction to the software, you'll be able to navigate through its many tools , and as time goes on you'll be able to create all kinds of graphics and design projects. Whether you're interested in drawing techniques or logo design or web design, I can structure my lessons so you can learn what you want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of design skills.

I have been using Adobe Illustrator both academically and professionally for about 5 years now. I use it primarily to create various graphics for numerous projects, architectural diagrams for academic and professional work, as well as use to to create overlays for images. I currently use CS5.5 at home and CS6 at work. I have reference images available. I believe the entire Adobe Suite works best when intertwined with both Illustrator and InDesign as the programs are very similar to one another.

About Steven

I'm a recent graduate of the Boston Architectural College, and employed by a large architectural firm in Boston. I am currently teaching a Rhino 3-D course at the BAC I tutor in all aspects of architecture including portfolio design, writing, software tutoring, design critiquing, and overall academic guidance. For software, I specialize in the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros, and V-Ray. I've tutored students of all differing ages and skill sets, ranging from novice to advanced user. Further, I have numerous references and reviews about my services that I would be happy to pass along, as well as past design work that I have done both academically and professionally. Lastly, I have numerous resources students can use after tutoring sessions are complete such as reference manuals, tutorials, and websites to visit for additional learn

Adobe Creative Suite has most of the best multimedia software programs ever made. I have used it as a professional for over 20 years years. I look forward to teaching you how to use the "magic" that lies within it.

I've been designing for over ten years dating back to Quark (yikes!). I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as opposed to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Illustrator for the first time to getting advice for a project you're currently working on, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

Adobe illustrator is my favorite designing tool, and I use it every single day, and I know the ins and outs of it, and I would love to share that with you. It's really not that hard and you can master it in days, I'll help you master the basics and give you advanced techniques and shortcuts so you can ...

About Lily

I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed

techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Adobe Illustrator is a creative and technical tool great for new illustrations and editing vector artwork, preparing scalable artwork, logos, fonts and so many more creative uses. Adobe Illustrator has been a favorite tool of mine for 20 years, and my experience with vector tools goes back nearly 30 years!
I enjoy working with people and patiently helping you to understand how Illustrator and other adobe Creative Suite tools can work specifically for you. Illustrator is a more advanced and technical tool. It is very powerful, but can be learned by anyone to help make creative tasks easier and more professional.

About Daniel

I love people! I enjoy teaching and training, listening and learning, meeting new people and discovering new things. As a Creative Director south of Nashville, I make time to work with children and adults, teaching drawing, photography, Adobe Creative Suite and other creative computer skills. I also coach soccer in Nolensville, TN. My own art reflects a passion for people, as I am primarily a portrait artist in photography as well as with pencil, pen and ink, and watercolor. I started with teaching art classes in High school, then as part of wilderness trips in the white mountains, teaching creative survival skills. I work often with youth athletics and skills training, with the children in my church, and all ages as a mentor, tutor, and coach outside of regular business hours... Lately I have been helping photographers and models build

their brand identity with pictures. - - What are your creative needs?

Adobe Illustrator is a very useful vector based program. Some of the things you may do in it are: illustrations, logos, flyers and packaging. You'll need to have the program on your computer.
I have used it as a professional for over 20 years years.

Businesses and academic institutions around the world use PowerPoint. It is important at all levels to be an effective communicator and presenter.

I will use my academic knowledge joined with my new world digital technology skills, to make you able to express yourself.
