Lawrence is well informed on what kinds of formulas to use and when to use them. He is also very good at making sure that you understand the topic and taking the extra time to help you get to a good level of understanding.

Larry and his wife are so friendly and knowledgeable. I came away from my first lesson feeling much more confident in my ability and encouraged to develop it further. They critiqued my current ability without being mean or hurtful, and they gave me plenty of positive feedback on the things I'm doing right. Being self-taught will only get you so far. Having an actual instructor who can create a plan based on your specific needs is invaluable. I highly recommend.

During my child's teaching, he learned how to say, write, and identify seasons, meats, clothing, phrases, and questions. The first day he learned how to say the Chinese alphabet. This had not been possible without Jiancheng Wu. :)

About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!
- Aaron S.,

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

--- LOCATION ---

I really lucked out when I found Cindy on line. I bought a new camera for a trip and was looking for someone who could help me understand the basics of shooting with my camera. Cindy was great - very knowledgeable and showed me exactly what I needed to know. Highly recommend her!

About Manuel
I began as tutor in 1990 (Guayaquil, Ecuador), when I was at high school. It was my real first job. Then, when I was at college, I taught at a public high school for 5 years. After that, I was instructor in the same university I studied and then moved to Chile to get a M. Sc. degree in Statistics and continued working as instructor of many topics (physics, pre calculus, statistics, project management, probabilities, inference, sampling, and more related). My last job was Chairman of Statistical Engineering (+2y) and, obviously, instructor of related topics.
I moved to USA after I got married, and I am starting a new life here. I am sure I can help you understanding the wonderful world of mathematical sciences. Feel free to contact me for any additional information.

About Denise
The power of words is not to be used, but to be used in a way in which the speaker intends them to be understood, or interpreted. I will teach you how to say what you want to say or need to say. Sometimes when you are searching for the words it's hard to find the right ones, but this is because you are not applying technique or strategy. In English, there is a saying " There is more than one way to skin a cat" which means that there are many options to do any given task, including learning a new language. Let's find the words together and then make them your own.
