***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer (Windows preferred) after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic from an introduction to slide management to the invocation of complex slide objects with animations/transitions.
My emphasis is on intelligible and transparent learning to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available. The most common requests are as follows:
basic slide formatting and sequencing, importing and customizing slide objects, installing animations and slide transitions, linking from related office applications to power point, creating dynamic text art, using and controlling the presenter interface with speaker notes, along with variable, custom topics for an optimal, pertinent lesson experience.

I have used PowerPoint and related presentation and visualization tools for the completion of my PhD in ...

Erol is very knowledgeable and has helped me to develop great awareness on how l speak and what to do to reduce my accent. In a month l already noticed some improvement.
Rosa Mac
Very pleased with the course and the instructor. Even though it was a miscommunication at the beginning, we were able to connect with the instructor's information. (Takelessons sends one meeting code, and instructor send another one????). Class was good, instructor very nice, organized and patient (2 hrs time zone difference). Will continue class in the future. I highly recommend Erol.

LOVE!! Erol is so skilled!! Best Instructor Ever! :)

Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson
Kathryn (Royal)
I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

I have been teaching Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for more than eight years
This course takes you from knowing nothing about Photoshop to having an incredibly good handle on the program in as little time as possible.

The three legs of Photoshop are:
* Layers
* Selections
* Color Correction
If you understand how to manipulate those three elements you can accomplish just about anything with Photoshop. This course starts by going over those concepts and then shows how to combine them for powerful results. Rather than showing you every single feature this course focuses on the features people actually use without boring you to tears on the other tools.

I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis. I am very comfortable with all aspects

I am an experienced Photoshop user and have taught it to high school students. Although I love to take photographs, my photos don't always come out the way I'd like. However, I can fix almost anything using Photoshop! I can teach you how to modify colors, wipe away wrinkles, fix lighting issues, select certain areas of a photo you can then modify, add or remove parts of a photo, and so much more!

In advance of our first lesson I ask students to let me know how much they might already know about Photoshop, and what they want to learn. That way we can hit the ground running when we start your first lesson. And there is no need to worry about forgetting what we covered, because I provide each student with their own copy of a collection of tips, tricks and shortcuts I've put together.

About Cynthia

Hello! I've been an artist and a teacher for most of my life, and am excited to share those skills with online students. In 1993 I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Art Education, and in 2005 I added a graduate certification in teaching Computers and Related Applications.

"Mr. Sumit A. is one of the most humblest and outstanding teachers on the planet. His intellectual IQ is extraordinary and his fast and fresh teaching method is second to none. I struggled with a 20 year learning curve, after deciding to go back to school as an adult to continue my educational pursuits.

Mr. Summit has helped me push through hard to understand CAD components such as CAD Math and CAD Mechanical Drawing Components. Since our tutoring sessions have been so effective. I have an A in all of my courses! Mr. Summit has kept me ahead of the curve...he has also helped me overcome some effects of a slight learning disability and handicap. I recommend him to anyone. He can teach knowledge and wisdom to a tall giraffe... or he can teach knowledge and wisdom to a tiny sheep. Mr. Sumit is one of the world’s best instructors. His knowledge base is elite."
