Tutoring

The Art of Getting the Message Across
Being a private tutor is not easy challenge. It could be compared with acting or stand up comic. You really need to know how to get your message across and adapt to many different types of students. Why do I do it? I enjoy it. I enjoy it as much as teaching with a classroom full of students.

The advantages of private tutoring when compared to traditional classrooms are many. I know that many people cannot deal with the college’s rigid schedule, the large amount of students per class and professors’ divided attention. That is the reason why private tutoring is so appealing for many. I can do web designgraphic design, and windows and mac tutoring

I work as art director for an advertising agency and I have been teaching at Miami Dade College for the School of Entertainment and Design Technology for eleven years. The courses I have taught include Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamwaver, Fireworks, Freehand, QuarkXpress, Introduction to Internet Technology, Web Design I and II, Graphic Design I, II and III. I have a Masters in Communication Arts from Havana University, an Associate in Arts in Graphic Design and Visual Communication and an Associate in Sciences in Web Design and Internet Technology. I can teach in English or Spanish.

I usually go to the student’s home and my approach is very simple. I go faster or slower depending on the student’s ability and/or previous experience. I can explain everything involved in the process or I can go slow and take care of every single detail. If you like hands-on training we can do it or if you rather for me to demonstrate and them help you with exercises we can do it too. Minimum of three hours is required and I collect my fees at the end of every session. Usually I do this on Saturdays or weekdays during the night depending on Miami Dade College’s schedule.
