My first lesson was yesterday. Julie is very easy to talk to, which is great for someone as introverted as I am. She is thorough in gaining an understanding of what you want to learn and gives several “homework” assignments for you to work on before your next lesson. I’m looking forward to our next session.

I learned a great deal from working with Julie in a very short amount of time. She's extremely knowledgable and very patient. I look forward to continuing sessions with her in pursuit of achieving my goals.
Maria W.
I was a little sceptical at first how this classroom session was going to go. Julie is exactly what I have hoped for in an instructor, very thorough in teaching in a manner that helps me understand not only about my camera, but, what is expected. I believe that Julie is a good fit for me.

This was the first time we used TakeLessons website to find a tutor for my son. We were a bit hesitant about the quality of teachers we may find on the site. There were many tutors for Photoshop to choose from but we went ahead with JC. His description of attention to quality and ensure kids have fun while learning is what attracted us to his profile. I must say, he lived up to the description in his profile and our son enjoyed the manner in which he spoke and how he conducted the lessons. I would recommend him for Photoshop definitely and we will continue to work with JC as our time and his time permit. Excellent Photoshop tutor!

Painting is a great creative outlet for people to spend time relaxing and make something beautiful that brings you pride and joy. Anyone can paint! All it takes is time and a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them. I’ve been painting for 8 years and teaching for 1. I welcome all students who are interested in picking up painting as new hobby or returning after a long time away. We’ll build out your painting techniques and color theory so you can paint from real life or something abstract.
