How can an Advertising tutor help you?
Advertising is present almost everywhere you look. On billboards and television, in newspapers and magazines, on the radio, websites, and on products themselves. Ranging from cereal boxes to high-end fashion, advertising works to entice customers to spend their money on purchasing the advertiser's particular brand of product or service. Good advertisers rely on not only visual design skills and creativity, but an understanding of their product's key features and the particular audience to which they are advertising. Good advertisers have a solid understanding of written and visual rhetoric; the possibilities and restrictions presented by different forms of media, cultural imagery and tropes; and a deep understanding of psychology, sociology, and economics.
With the popularization of digital media, advertisers may now be expected to adapt their work from traditional media into new media, like social websites and apps. Developing not only the basic foundational skills used in advertising, but being up-to-date in current digital trends, may help you get a leg up on the competition when looking for a job in advertising. Whether you're struggling to grasp the basic principles of advertising in an introductory class, want feedback on the first sketches for your senior project, or want to develop advertising skills to add to your resume, personal advertising tutoring can help you to master each concept in full.
Varsity Tutors can help you select an experienced instructor who can customize a curriculum to meet your particular needs. When you get in touch with the educational directors at Varsity Tutors, you are given the tools you need to provide a full student profile that dictates your needs to tutors who can match with you. The profile may display a wide range of information, such as your learning style, availability, personal habits, past experiences, and other details that can come into play when identifying your ideal tutor. When you connect with a tutor, you can discuss the personal goals that you'd like to achieve through individualized tutoring. They will assess your skills, strengths, and weaknesses prior to crafting a personal tutoring plan for you.
In each of your advertising tutoring sessions, you will have your instructor's full attention and the opportunity to receive feedback and answers to your questions as needed. Your instructor can work with you to analyze features of example advertisements, help you learn to work through different parts of the design process, and offer helpful, constructive critiques of your work before you submit it. Further, you are free to dictate your tutoring sessions as you please, focusing on the concepts you'd like to improve in. You are able to achieve this due to the flexibility offered by an individual learning plan. Textbooks and instructional websites just can't offer the individualized feedback that private tutoring can provide you with. Your tutoring can be scheduled to address short-term concerns, such as providing feedback as you work on a specific project, or long-term concerns, such as providing assistance throughout a semester of advertising coursework. You can request additional meetings if you feel they are necessary, or fewer if you are unable to meet as frequently one week.
You don't have a strict schedule for personal tutoring; that's one of the reasons it can be so customized. Your tutor understands your schedule and busy life. They strive to make sure that each meeting can be as stress free and seamless as possible for you. You can ask to meet before or after you complete your other responsibilities. In addition, you can meet up at a local place or anywhere you want in person, or you can choose to take face-to-face online tutoring sessions.
