Graphic designer based in Ottawa with years of experience. Diploma in Interactive Media Design.

Methodology

My teaching methods are very hands on. I believe that the best way to learn is to do it yourself and make as many mistakes as possible. Everyone learns in different ways and I adjust my teachings to do so.

Background

I am a graphic and web designer. I have experience in creating websites, UI and UX designs and various graphics. I studied Interactive Multimedia Design, from which I have worked in various companies and agencies and freelanced as well. I am very passionate about the work that I do and I have a very positive attitude when doing so.

Perfect! I had a two hour tutoring session with Lana for illustrator and she was amazing! I was struggling with some school assignments and she was very patient and helpful. She reviewed all the basics with me and helped me complete a lot of work in one day. I would definitely use her help again.

I'd gladly tutor her again.

Lana is extremely knowledgeable in all things web and graphic design. She has an eye for design and the technical skills to back it up. We've worked on a number of professional projects together and I've seen the impressive work she does first hand. I highly recommend her as a tutor for anyone looking to refine their web development or design skills.

Lana is one of the most takented graphic designers I know. From designing restaurants in downtown Ottawa, to making logos and websites for various companies, Lana exceeds all expectations and always has a smile every step of the way. She is a great teacher and loves to share her passion with others. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a tutor ️

Lana's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Lana — I always had an interest in design. I love art and always have. When I discovered Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator it was as if I found my holy grail. I discovered my love for web design when I attended college, not only did I have fun making websites but I was really good at it. To me, graphic and web design doesn't feel like a job, or a chore its more like a creative getaway.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Lana — My life revolves around art in all of its forms. I strive to make things greater and better. Graphic and web design is a constantly growing field where norms are changing daily, I love learning about new ways to design projects and brands.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Lana — I love helping others and expanding their knowledge. There's something rewarding about when a student comes for help and at the end of the session their head isn't cloudy about the subject anymore.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Lana — One of my college professors would always go out of his way to help me when I was in need (at any time of day). He wouldn't treat me like I was less than him because I didn't understand. He was very encouraging and I appreciate the way he teaches.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Lana — Organization, dedication, and making mistakes. You cannot learn without making a TON of mistakes along the way.
