I spend a great deal of time on light room, and have learned incredibly valuable things from my own experimentation. I have done editing that ranges from "cinematic" style edits to wedding edits to food photography edits. My lessons with students will help them understand WHY things are the way they, so that they can continue to apply theory and techniques to their own work. I love experimental work, and will always be excited to explore topics that I haven't mentioned.

Back to the basics?? I say, Forward with the basics. The fundamentals are what enable us to learn more efficiently.

HTML, CSS, and JS can be a handful, especially if you're completely new to Web Dev. I learned from scratch, but the journey was (and still is) incredible!

About Hector

Hi! My name is Hector and I earned a degree in Neuroscience, and while learning the facts about the brain is exciting, it's even more amazing to witness the excitement from the faces I've taught when they understood the concept they were struggling with. It's so much more rewarding to see the glow

Hector is very helpful! In chemistry, he knew his information well and was eager in explaining things followed by checking to make sure we understood the lesson. He takes responsibility in teaching and has a very kind personality. I like to study with him.
Alex
His passion for the betterment of people and his ability to make complex topics so simplistic truly make him a devoted and effective tutor.
Kelsey
I've known Hector for a few years now, and I haven't met anyone as passionate when it comes to his work.
Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

"I used Aperture for years to adjust my photos, but when Apple stopped supporting it, I subscribed to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. LR is comparable to Aperture, but neither does a good job of fixing a blown out sky; PS offers several methods of dealing with this problem, none of them particularly simple. PS is a complex, daunting professional tool and I was stymied and discouraged. Nick taught me how to use PS to solve my problem and gave me confidence that I could, with study and practice, learn how to use PS to solve other problems. The important thing is that Nick listened to me as to my goal and directed his teaching to that goal. He showed enormous patience as I interrupted him with questions every 20 seconds. To sum up: it's unrealistic to try to learn PS in three hours. I needed specific knowledge to get over a difficult hurdle, and Nick taught me what I needed to use PS to solve my problem. I believe that I can now go forward to do a much better job adjusting and developing my photos, and that I have a better grasp on how to learn more about PS. Thank you, Nick."
