Hey you! I know programming can seem really difficult or scary, I was there too not so long ago. It doesn’t have to be if you are willing and able to ask for help and, YOU are here so YOU are able to break down those mental barriers. We all can understand most concepts if they are broken down for us enough that we can follow the process at hand!

During our sessions together, we will use my palm-sized-globe (PSG) strategy to learn each new concept. With this strategy, any aspect that isn't crystal clear to you, we will stop, and I encourage you to stop me at any time, rotate the globe, and I will offer you an explanation of the concept from another perspective.

Whether you want to improve your coding skills, learn how to automate processes, get into a coding bootcamp, deal with large data sets, create websites to build up your portfolio, or ace your classes, I will be there to help you succeed.

My objectives are focused on you, your education, your future and your career and ...

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.

About Kelvin

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

Want to finally understand how to program in Java? I am an experienced programmer with experience throughout my college degree and at JPMorgan. I utilize a lot of strategies to help my students understand seemingly complex topics. Firstly, I try to relate programming concepts to real-life scenarios such as relating classes and objects to blueprints and stores. Secondly, I always try to reinforce the "why" when solving a problem. This includes why a certain solution is better than another and why solving this problem matters. Finally, I try to make sure that every student understands what is going on "under the hood." When a student understands what is going on "under the hood", they now have learned how to fish as opposed to being given a fish.

About Jacob

I'm Jake! I graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in computing security and am currently working towards my master's degree in computing security. Both degrees will be from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). In college, I realized both how frustrating and how rewarding programming

Susan is a highly skilled, very knowledgeable teacher and I am grateful for our hours together. I am a 20 year Excel user, Susan has helped me to continue to improve and grow my skills.

Patient, Clear, Direct and Really cares…no, I mean it..Susan really cares!

I am 8 lessons in with Susan and find her instruction clear, direct and easy to follow. She is very patient with me when I want to dig into deeper explanation or review a feature or a function for a second or third time.

Susan cares about what you are looking to achieve by taking her courses and tailors her instructions to your goals.

For many years, excel has been my nemesis and I am slowly but surely learning to appreciate it’s robust benefits and efficiency that is applicable in my weekly reporting and overall career goals. I am a little shocked and excited about how fast I have been able to learn from Susan relative to my previous excel courses.

I have been recommending Susan to all my coworkers and friends and I plan on continuing this excel journey!
Phil stacy
I’m a middle aged, mid level Corp. manager who for the last 15 years has had an assistant take care of the mundane like excel, power point, etc. After a corp restructure, I decided to “brush up” on my excel and gave Susan a call. Brush up didn’t even begin to touch on my level of incompetence or what I had forgotten.Susan was patient and spoke in terms I could understand. Did I mention she was patient? Never thought I would make it but toward the end of the first level I was looking forward to the classes(for the most part). She was/ is flexible with scheduling and made a class that I was apprehensive about taking just slightly uncomfortable instead. If you’re like I was you need someone like Susan to help you compete in 2020

Etana is definitely good at explaining technical information to a neophyte in a way that can be understood, and without making you feel unintelligent. She is a great tutor."
