First time using an Arabic tutor. Our son felt comfortable and thought his tutor used some interesting techniques for reading Arabic. The tutor was prepared and able to jump right in to help complete language activity.

I've been designing for over ten years and I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as oppose to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Adobe for the first time to getting advice for a project you're currently working on, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

I'm a total novice and Blake is very patient and doesn't mind explaining things more than once. After one lesson, I feel like I can start putting what I learned to use already.

I have taken Both A Photography and an Adobe Photoshop Class from Blake.
Blake is Extensively Knowledgeable and Compassionate about what He Teaches I may go into the class with a misunderstanding of a particular Subject or Topic but close with a Reassurance and Confidence in both Myself and the Subject; That is because Blake will not stop until He is assured I know the Amswer. I would Highly Recommend Blake To Anyone Who is Looking to Further Their Knowledge And Education With Great Appeciation and Grattitude, Ellen S

Daniel is great, he is extremely knowledgeable. He explains things in detail so that you have a thorough understanding of how Indesign works and interfaces with other programs. He is happy to answer any and all questions and moves at a good pace.

We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.

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.
