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.

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.
