- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Graphic Design! Students who seek me as a professor can expect to be asked what their ultimate goals are, so I can cater all curriculum to their major objectives. After that, beginning students will be walked through curriculum that will present terminology, history (my favorite!), and basic tools used in Graphic Design.
Intermediate and advanced students will also be asked for major objectives they want to take away from the sessions, and the curriculum will be developed towards those needs. Typography, composition and layout, as well as design solutions are the big three corner stones students should expect us to touch on.
Overall, all students should expect at least 30 minutes of lesson time and handouts for them to take with them and study when the session is over (yes, that means homework).
- Teaches students:

- Teaching since:
I am a professor with seventeen years worth of experience in teaching various subjects for a multitude of students. I've taught subjects such as creative writing, commercial law, ancient civilization, ancient and transitional Latin and Greek, as well as Graphic Design, Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign), Federal and Commercial Building Compliance and Law, et cetera. To put it bluntly, there's very little I cannot teach.
I've taught GED classes and courses for the State of Michigan and the Northeast Penitentiary system for seven years as well, which has been some of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had.
I believe that everyone can learn. All it takes is that student to professor connection and knowing what type of learner the student is. I don't believe in a "one shoe fits all" type of teaching style. My students are unique, with different ways of looking at problems and different ways of coming to their own conclusions and solutions.
Good teaching is a mixture of art and science—the ability to grab and keep students' attention and convey complex information, Mr. K does just that!! I have taken about 4 or 5 classes with him and I must say he has taught me everything I need now in my career. Patient and vastly knowledge. Definitely would take another class with him!Show More
Mr. K taught was amazing. He taught the GED in Michigan a few years ago. The moment I walked into his classroom, it was just one and one. He didn't treat me like all the other teachers. He actually cared and it showed. But man, is he hard! I didn't think I would get homework after the first class, but I was seriously wrong. But over the next two months, he grilled me and grilled me until I wanted to scream. But when I took the GED and was scored, I aced it! Just to warn yall though, he's not an easy teacher. And he doesn't put up with excuses. But when he gives you his attention, its all of it.
He even went waaaay beyond the call of duty and helped me get into college at Lansing Community College. He walked me through the application, even drove and met me at LCC, and sat with me when we talked to the reps. He even helped me look for scholarships and gave me advise on financial aid! This guy is a saint!
