Leicestershire-based Degree-qualified Creative Digital Artist, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (among others) Adult Tutor

Methodology

I aim to teach students with hands-on practice and direct instruction, to learn the functional aspects of Adobe programs to get them started without the need to plough through encyclopedic text-books. With a friendly, easy-going and fun approach, I aim to teach through encouragement and praise for efforts.

Experience

A background in Adobe creative suite after working in the design and print industry for 10 years and completing various freelance graphic-design, animation and illustration projects. I have assisted fellow colleagues in the workplace to learn the basics of Adobe creative Suite and skills in typography and page-layout.
