Gerardo definitely knows a lot about Microsoft Excel. He taught me how to use pivot tables, create histograms, produce graphs of data, and he also helped me learn a few keyboard short-cuts to do my work more efficiently. Gerardo is a patient and effective tutor and I highly recommend him!
Ana
Gerardo helped me out in Calculus because I was truly struggling. I had a tough professor and I had not taken a math course in a couple of years. He did a great job at tutoring me through webcam and he was really patient with me. I would definitely recommend!
Henry
Gerardo helped me prepare for my AP Calculus AB test. I had trouble understanding certain concepts such as related rates and using integration to find volumes. He explained problems very clearly by going step-by-step, and making sure I understood the process every step of the way. I highly recommend Gerardo if you are looking for a math tutor.

I do a lot of Python and SQL programming and can help in many ways from automating tasks, to building websites to data analysis or simply figuring out a good way to view your data.

Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers.

Casey is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and able to break down concepts into easy-to-understand language. In addition to teaching the general steps to writing code, he is able to present real-world applications in a wide variety of scientific disciplines for each example.

I highly recommend Casey for teaching Python, and programming in general.

Software Engineer with 4-5 years of professional experience in Java. I have studied computer science with my foundation in Java. I love investing my time in teaching.

About Pranav

I am a software engineer working professionally for 4.5 years in the industry. My goal from my classes will be that you should be able to code and program regardless of the programming language. I am proficient in Java, Javascript and some C/Python. I can start with either and we can build up. I g

I gave Pranav a tough task; an advanced Java concept I needed help with and a short amount of time. He did an amazing job at condensing the information, made sure that I had my own copy of all the key syntax, and was polite while explaining all the information. I would gladly use him again.

Are you new to Photoshop and need some help getting started? No Problem. It is a wonderful program that is very intuitive once you know where things are. I know how intimidating it can be at first to learn a new program because I continue to learn new ones myself. i am very patient and happy to help.

Basic functions for Photoshop include cropping rotating moving images around and then taking photos and manipulating them suddenly so that they don’t look manipulated. In addition, you can learn the best practices for preparing photos for the Internet or for print. I adjust my approach to teaching as I get to know you as a student and what learning style works best with you.

About Sharon

Do you want to learn to draw/paint or improve your work? Are you applying for college and need portfolio advice? Did you want to get back into doing art after many years without it? Are you a mid-career artist and just need some feedback and a new perspective? Are you changing careers and nee

Sharon is the best art teacher I’ve ever had. She excels in explaining a concept verbally and then showing visual examples of it. With her positive and encouraging teaching style, Sharon guided me to better myself as a beginning artist. Her teaching technique is uncomplicated and easy to follow. When you take a class with her, not a single session goes by without learning something new. Without reservation, I would recommend taking an art class with Sharon.
Nancy
Sharon McNeil is a talented instructor. She is able to assist students in retaining crucial information regarding source of light, shadow placement and overall composition. She is skilled at color mixing. In our classes she set up large still life arrangements at the center of the room that were our focus. She provided painting demonstrations that helped put theory into action. A good teacher.
Ty
Sharon is a fantastic teacher. She has a great eye for drawing and painting, and helped encourage me when I needed to push my art. I would highly reccomend any aspiring artist take her classes. She is patience, sweet, and incredibly intuitive.

"Etana is a great consultant. I have known her for many years and when it came time to open a graphic design studio for graphic designer wife, I asked Etana how to best go about it. She took the time to explain to me the ins and outs I would need to know in order to be the business side of the company. Mind you, I can't even color inside the lines so I leave all the design work to my wife and employees. But thanks to Etana I had a better understanding of what I was getting us into before leaping into an unfamiliar business to me."
