Experienced Print Graphic Designer in Marketing Industry & Self Employment (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Basic Computer Skills)

Methodology

The multi-cultural exposure of traveling and living in different countries added to my character to be calm, understanding, patient, and friendly as an instructor. This has also allowed me to care for details, growth, and meaningful teaching/learning experiences.

My experiences have also taught me that I personally need to be a learner at all times which gives me empathy to my students' needs and areas of the growth curve.

I believe every person has a unique learning style and my goals are to find what your style is and to help you unlock the keys to learn more efficiently with satisfaction the content that we will be journeying together.

I expect my students to do their work within reasonable measures, yet a little out of their comfort zone in order to result in continual growth and acceleration.
