Illustrator is a great tool to create awesome vector-like effects of images to use as logos, designs and artwork. I have plenty of background incorporating these images into my own website. I also taught Illustrator to large groups of students as a teaching assistant at UC Santa Cruz.
I am very qualified and skilled to teach web design. I have been building websites for over ten years.

I have taught digital media courses to large groups of students and instructed them how to create a framework for HTML through PHP.
I use Final Cut Pro and iMovie for big-screen and new media installations. I helped students with transitions, contrast, sound issues and exporting files that run on a projector. I am skilled with editing from most programs and using cameras.

Many web design and publishing projects I have assisted others with are completed with the aid of Dreamweaver.
I am naturally placed in the role of helping others with their computers as I am highly skilled in using Macintosh. I have owned several MacBook Pros over the course of almost ten years. I have experience troubleshooting and helping others figure out their macs in every university setting I've been in.
I have experience teaching PHP since 2011 before my completion of a PhD in Arts and Computational Technology. As I am skilled in helping others build webpages and run my own sites using PHP, I am good at using it too. I helped a class of 30 students ranging from simple to more complicated problems.
