Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

I've been teaching this subject for 8+ years. I am best suited for beginners/intermediate levels who are looking to learn the program and become proficient.

I love teaching it applied to fashion and graphic design, but basic skills is also something I offer.

About Milda
I am located in Los Angeles for in-person lessons , BUT I teach online via Skype all over the U.S. Please indicate the type of lessons + subject you would like to learn when you contact me. I'm best to suited for beginners through intermediate. I am willing to travel outside my travel radius at $35/trip depending on distance. If outside my travel area, you must book at least a 2 hour lesson.

I'm a designer with extensive experience that you won't find elsewhere. I am not a simple sewing teacher- I customize all my lesson plans, prepare our projects to be of most benefit to your specific goals, and have a unique set of skills that the average sewing teacher doesn't. I don't compromise on my rates as I provide an extreme amount of value for what I offer. My resources and tips alone are great ways of to make you excel at your project goal
s a lot more quickly than with anyone else. I believe in a holistic approach to tackling your projects- not just isolating one way of accomplishing it.

I am a former Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) Professor, teaching sewing and fashion art, and in the fashion industry for over 16 years. I have worked at Target Stores, Federated Dept. stores, and Alexander McQueen, and have a very close working knowledge of industry standards and needs. I currently work as a costumer in Hollywood on films and television creating costumes for the stars. I facilitate students and fashion companies in the following areas:

-Illustration (computer or-hand-rendered)
- Fashion Portfolio Preparation.
- Hand Embroidery (I DO NOT operate Embroidery Machines)
- Graphic Design FOR BEGINNERS in Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator and Photoshop); though I work with general graphic design, my specialty is fashion garment illustration.
- Consulting on how to produce your own clothing/accessories collection.
- Consulting on how to source and produce your Domestic and Overseas collection.
- How to create line sheets.
- How to create technical packets.
- How to create digital art for screenprinting.

-Computer Assistance for BEGINNERS- Learning to use the Computer, Basic Skills in MS Office, using the Web. etc.

1.) You will have to have all your materials and most of your tools: sewing machine, computer with all installed programs or services, patternmaking tools and paper, fabrics, etc. I will bring some small materials to our first session to explain what tools to purchase.

2.) You must make yourself available for one 15 minute phone consult before scheduling your first lesson- please plan to do this at least one week to 2 days before you want to schedule your first lesson. We will discuss your lesson goals, and what materials to buy. You do need to allow time to purchase your materials, so please plan ahead. When you purchase your lessons, please email me a time and date (or several) to schedule this phone call.

Please schedule directly with me VIA EMAIL. I do have my general availability listed on schedule for everyday, However, I work with many students and teach classes that might not be reflected in this schedule. I will try my best to honor the time you request, but I cannot guarantee it. Please email me to confirm- I will also reach out to you via phone to confirm or reschedule a time if there is a conflict.


- 24 hour cancellation policy/ no refunds given after this time.
- All sessions are a 1 hour minimum. Recommended time for sewing lessons is 1.5 - 2 hr increments.

About Cindy K.

Alpharetta, GA
View Full Profile

While Lightroom can handle most post processing needs, certain tasks require (or can be done more easily) in Photoshop. I can help you determine when to leverage Photoshop in your workflow and how to navigate the interface. I use Photoshop professionally for complex, multi-layer architectural composites, and enjoy helping students build Photoshop skills.

About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!
- Aaron S.,
New York, NY

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

I really lucked out when I found Cindy on line. I bought a new camera for a trip and was looking for someone who could help me understand the basics of shooting with my camera. Cindy was great - very knowledgeable and showed me exactly what I needed to know. Highly recommend her!

Zack has really taught me a lot as far as basic html, how to create easy email templates and basic coding skills for microsites. His skillset knows no bounds. Has vast experience to draw from, has the patience of a saint, has been teaching for a really long time. But private lessons are where its at. That way you can learn exactly what you want, and not syphon through the stuff you really don't need to help your career, along.

Zack is a great teacher. He went above and beyond during my lesson and provided valuable resources, tools, and advice. I would highly recommend his services.

About Daren D.

Hoboken, NJ

View Full Profile

Did you ever want to learn basic Photoshop to edit your own family, vacation, business, or social media photos but felt too overwhelmed to learn from scratch? Perhaps you might even want to improve the quality of your thumbnails on You Tube?

If any of the above examples apply to you, then I can help! I am an editor for a vacation vlog and a gaming channel on You Tube. I also cut demo reels and edit my own photography. I can offer beginner/intermediate Photoshop tutorials, walking you through removing unwanted background objects, adding eye-catching text, basic color correcting, etc. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. You will have a functional knowledge of Photoshop in no time! (*For my lessons, I use Photoshop Elements 14, a less complicated version of Photoshop Pro.)

Shoot me a message, and let's start creating together!

About Daren
I am a professional actor, dancer, voiceover artist, editor, personal trainer, disc jockey (17+ years), and promotional marketer. Graduating from Pennsylvania State University in 2013, I studied labor employment studies with a law focus and minored in film/theatre. I have a very diverse skill set and take every opportunity to teach my students with patience, enthusiasm, and an attention to detail.

Recently, my TV credits have included co-starring roles on The Daily Show (Comedy Central), The Blacklist (NBC), and Blue Bloods (CBS). Since 2016, I have been the voice of a national Velveeta and Rotel ad campaign, and my voiceover experience extends to the world of video games and anime. I also starred in a sci-fi series pilot for DirecTV, currently in post-production.

Using my editing skills, I create content for a new travel vlog and
video gaming channel (Remie D Gaming on You Tube), creating professional travel videos, original video game-related comedic memes, and a personal look at my fun social experiences.

As an actor and voiceover artist, I frequently update my marketing materials including demo reels, websites, and social media. Doing so requires a fundamental knowledge of various editing programs such as Adobe Premiere Elements and Adobe Photoshop Elements. I present actual examples of what is possible using these programs and how to immediately apply the principles I teach to your projects at home or business.

For whatever you need, I look forward to helping you bring out your best personal results!

Minneapolis, MN

I've been using Photoshop since the mid 90's. My skills are multi-faceted, I'm both a photographer and designer. This creates an ability to use the many functions of Photoshop in many ways.

We'll start with assessing your skill level and where we should start your lessons. Basically, bringing you up to speed on current features and quick-key commands. We can then move on to more tailored lessons that fit the desired outcome you need.
For specifically photography, we'll learn how Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, and Photoshop work together to create a simple workflow for putting out quality prints and digital content.

Design lessons will take us through making composite images all the way to commercial content creation like fliers, posters and digital content. Of course, we can max both for an all-encompassing photoshop experience.

I'm excited to work with you, let's make something awesome!

About Dan
I'm an experimentalist! What that means is, I let my creativity take me in many ways. I'm a photographer, both studio, and nature. I'm a designer with freelance clients of many types. I'm currently developing an app for tracking butterflies and LOVE teaching.

I've made:
-Show Posters
-Social media campaigns
-GIF's (both hilarious and professional)
-An image of a whale with a city (Minneapolis) growing out of its back as it swims through the clouds.
-Invites, Save The Dates and other event-related content
-Websites (but I truly hate coding and think it may be what I will die from)
-Branding guides
-Thousands of product images for web
-Fashion Prints
-App Designs
-Ad's of all shapes and sizes!

And so much more. Let's have a chat and see how I can help you get to where you want to be in Photoshop

About Cynthia A.

Cambridge, MA

From Photoshop Elements to Photoshop Creative Cloud, I will introduce you to the functions and concepts behind the Photoshop phenomenon! If you have never used it, it is as interesting as you may have heard. If you know the fundamentals, I can help you use some of the more advanced features of the program like working with layers, basics of color spaces and outputs for web and print, understanding the workspace, embedding watermarks and using filters for creative and functional enhancement of your images.

About Cynthia
I tutor general computer skills - both Mac and Windows, although I specialize in Apple products. I also specialize in digital imaging, photography, Photoshop, and web design fundamentals (WordPress in particular). I am a good instructor for an older student as well as a person who wants to improve their skills but may be embarrassed to ask, since I have experience with the technophobic. I work with a lot of small, often women-owned businesses who want help with all aspects of running a business including social media, preparing materials for clients, using online newsletters (Constant Contact, Mail Chimp), accounting in Quicken, general business strategies, and refining a brand.

If you're looking for a general computer orientation - naming conventions (important when learning to ask the right questions) or fundamentals plus on major ap
plications (Microsoft, Adobe, etc), I am happy to tutor you on those subjects. I have in-depth knowledge of most popular applications, and of iPhones and iPads and using iCloud synchronization effectively.

I'm a Cambridge based photographer who is well versed in all aspects of 35 mm film and digital photography as well as photo editing and post-processing using Photoshop. If it's related to digital images, photography or photo editing, Photoshop, or computer skills for these or other software programs, feel free to ask me a question.

I love images and the magic that is photography and I enjoy teaching photography techniques, skills and concepts. I also teach digital scanning and restoration.

Thank you,
