I have been using Illustrator for over 20 years and teaching it at the college level for eight years. I have used it and taught it for quite the range of design media. From Graphic Design, Motion Graphics, and Game Art to Image Manipulation, Concept Art and Abstract Deconstruction.

About Gilbert
I have worked for many Colleges and Kids Sports organizations. I have been background checked many times. I also teach kids of many ages at The Arbor Learning Center home schooling group.

Mr. M. is a CG artist. Like many, his love for art started in grade school and evolved in high school. While running his own T-Shirt Design company, "Extreme Limitations", he was able to quickly see the power of design, layout, color, and typography.

With over twenty years of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Prototype Design, Game Art, and Motion Graphics, Mr. M. now spends his time teaching students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Anim
ation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

Blake is a great teacher. He made me so determined to learn more and to get better in my craft. I started to become excited and always looked forward till our next lesson because I knew I would come out knowing way more than I did before. If you are unsure and/or new to this, I would 100% recommend Blake!

Blake is kind and courteous and the lessons were individualized and geared to meet my needs. Blake met my expectations in teaching the functionality of a new program, and he gave me guidance designing. The lessons are easy to schedule and cancel if necessary.

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

Although I took only one lesson with Jessica, she gave me a terrific foundation that is now allowing me to then go forward and learn more on my own. I will likely schedule additional lesson with her once I get stuck and need more personalized help. Lessons with her are a great way to get introduced to or brush up on Photoshop. Yay, Jessica!

I had some very specific questions and design concerns that Jessica was able to answer clearly and in a manner that allowed note-taking and testing on my part, which is of course the point of on-line learning. She's a very thoughtful and thorough instructor and I will be taking more classes with her going forward.

I had a great first lesson today! Jessica was very thorough but also made it easy to understand for someone with no experience. Her teaching style is down to earth with very open dialogue - she not only went through the basics but touched base and made sure to cover aspects and relate to things in which i set as my goals. I am looking forward to the rest of my classes with Jessica!

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. Employed as a creative director in Nashville, I spend my free time working with children and adults alike teaching drawing, photography and creative computer skills and also coaching soccer. 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 leading wilderness trips in the white mountains, teaching survival skills, then working as a PE teacher, coach and athletics director. I continue to work with children in my church, and all ages as a tutor outside of regular business hours... Let's talk!

Always have great ideas, but lack the technical skills to bring them to life? In only a few hours I'll teach you exactly what you need to know to efficiently create awesome work you can get paid for. Full software overview is available over a two day period.

Billboards, bus wraps, monuments, product design, UX/UI, motion graphics. I've worked on a lot of cool projects and can say I love what I do. I have fun sharing my knowledge in my spare time to help other creatives save the time and money I spent learning my skill set. (60k schooling + 11yr exp.)

About Austin
Lets have fun and learn! Ever wish you could create awesome work, but lack the technical skills to do so? After being self taught for 11 years then going to art school and working professionally in the creative industry for 7 years I've worked on a lot of cool projects and love sharing my experience in the field. I can honestly say I love what I do and teaching is just something I do for fun on the side because I enjoy helping other creatives develop the skills they need to produce awesome work. (For a tiny fraction of the time & money I spent acquiring skills.) I can teach you exactly what you need to know.

Choose to learn from me if you would like to learn about a bit more than just the topic selected. I have mentored a lot of successful artists and entrepreneurs and would be stoked to add you to the list.

Our son Christopher has been passionate about art and illustration his entire life but with traditional art instruction had become incredibly critical of his inability to duplicate exactly what other instructors required of him. In that regard meeting Tim Long has been one of the biggest blessings for us. Tim has helped to re-build a foundation for a lifelong relationship with art. His teaching methods are creative, engaging and unlike traditional art instructors rather than coax or box-in a child's imagination he provides the freedom to explore artistic expression based on our sons perception of art. Christopher has begun to experience illustration on a completely different level thanks to Tim, learning that trial and error and problem solving are part of the process and over the past few months it has been a joy to see the artist in him blossom again!

I've been designing for almost 15+ years and have become very familiar with the adobe suite programs. I consider myself a master in adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I started learning the Adobe suite in High School and used every opportunity to play with each tool and option in Adobe Illustrator and photoshop. I graduated from the Georgia Southern University Design program at the top of my class and have won several design awards since then.

My approach to tutoring is to start with the fundamentals and then progress to the concepts of how Adobe suite is setup. My goal is to remove any mental block caused by lack of knowledge of the software, to allow you to create without limits. I see the potential in each student and will push you to become the best you can be. I believe if you put in the work and time you too can become a master at Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

I graduated from the Georgia Southern University Design program at the top of my class and have won several design awards since then. The highlight of my awards was when I entered the global design contest “Cut & Paste” and came in second at the age of 20, loosing to the creative director of an established New York design firm. I then decided to start my own clothing line and used my skills to design and create the identity for my brand Freshiam. Since it's launch in 2010
my line has been sold around the world from Japan to Los Angeles and worn by superstars such as Rihanna, G-dragnon, Wiz Kahlifa and many more. As creative director of Freshiam I've had the privilege to tutor and mentor many talented designers, that have moved on to become successes in their own right.

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.
