"Eric was helpful. I had a quick intro in to what I needed to know for my project and what tools would be most useful.

It would have been ideal, if I had known ahead of time that he was not well-versed on all features of Adobe Creative Cloud, but at least I know what is possible with his expertise.

Otherwise Eric conveyed a professional competence and was easy to talk to."

As a parent, working with Eric is very easy. He cares about his students and really wants them to enjoy their time with him. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a teacher/ tutor!"
