I enjoy sharing a vast knowledge of arts and technology and inspiring others to work above their ability. I have been teaching and designing curricula in STEM related subjects for over 10 years at my Animation Studio and other Maker Spaces, Schools and Libraries.
Learn a single software program or combine skills to produce a full project alone or with a group.
I am experienced with teaching to all ages and skill levels and can explain complex concepts for all students. Autism Awareness!
Jay and I focused primarily on the asset warp tool... but he also provided numerous types for best practices, shortcuts, etc. Very helpful session. I appreciated that Jay was adaptive to what I specifically needed to learn today.

He?s really good at eyeing weaknesses in your technique and coming up with plans to help curve bad habits! He really knows how to make the most out of your time. After leaving a lesson you feel a sense of improvement to either your method of crafting or you understanding of the craft.

I learned a lot in a short amount of time. He came with a lesson and then answered all my questions. I look forward to more lessons. We covered a number of topics and went over my needs and what anticipated I'll need in the future. I highly recommend Jay.

Jay took a 15-year-old who had never studied music production before, to a basic understanding of 3 different open source music-related apps, in 2 hours. I caused some technical difficulties with a misplaced software key and Jay was able to work around the problem. We will return for more lessons, so my budding rapper-nephew can get his beats on video. Quote: "Jay was cool."

He is very patient and knowledgeable. I would recommend him anytime! He has a great approach with children and tunes into their specific needs and wants. He has a way of asking questions to get the information he needs to create the program that is best suited to the individual.

Jay's patience, clarity, and interest in the subject matter made the session both highly productive, as well as enjoyable for me. He gave me a great new perspective on the way I work in 3D, and I look forward to learning more from him!

Jay has been teaching me 2D Animation! He makes everything easy to understand learning 2D. When I have difficulty understanding. He explains it clearly for me to understand.
I can't wait to learn more! Jay is great!
I recommend this tutor!

Two lessons later and I'm most pleased with my applications as a result of our time addressing the tools and applications for Photo Shop! Next area will be Light Room and I'm anxious to explore this with Jay! I'm feeling very comfortable with the product especially for how I intend to use it. Can't go wrong investing time with Jay!!!!

Jay did a great job helping my son learn Adobe Illustrator while also helping him complete his project. My son was extremely pleased which is fantastic given he wasn't so sure about getting help from someone else. Jay was also very prompt and responsive so scheduling the lesson was a breeze. I recommend Jay highly!
