Sylvia was great during my first session. She was very patient and understanding being that I was new to adobe illustrator. Her step by step approach was very helpful.
William
I took my first class with Sylvia this week and she is a very good teacher. She helped me learn a new skill on first class by showing me than having me do the same tasks. She is patient, straight forward in her instructions and a clear communicator. I have signed up for 3 more classes because of my first class with her

First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.

Roya was wonderful with my 11 year old granddaughter who loves anime. Even though anime is not what she normally teaches, she came up with fun lessons which my granddaughter enjoyed. She is very dedicated and an exceptional teacher. So glad I found her!

I specialize in film and digital photography, typically use The Film Photography Handbook: Rediscovering Photography in 35mm, Medium, and Large Format books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: film or digital camera.

"Matthew created an amazing experience for my wife & me. He was very communicative prior to the class, and he really took my input to heart to create a customized painting experience for us. On the day of the class, he scoped out to location in Central Park in advance, and set up our easels in a great spot. Throughout the class, he was engaged, engaging, gave us a LOT of helpful creative tips and instructions, but also allowed us to use our own approach and imagination. We had an absolute BLAST - amazing memorable experience. We would really highly recommend Matthew to anybody."

"My classes with Professor McNeil were amazing. While her courses are not easy, they are extremely rewarding. She has an uncanny ability to make otherwise difficult techniques achievable, easy to understand and fun to practice. While taking her classes, through her way of teaching I wanted to paint more, draw more and felt confident to do it. I cannot dream up a better teacher, she is patient, inspiring, and pushes you to try new techniques in a way that you don't realise until you're practicing them. If you take her classes you'll only want to take more."
