Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, in my studio and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.

I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.

I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

Sylvia is an excellent teacher. I was starting from scratch, and she was able to quickly teach me how to do numerous important tasks relative to what I was looking to accomplish. I recommend her without reservation.

Sylvia was excellent! I came to her class with very little knowledge of the subject but she was patient and taught me step by step on the topics I wanna learn. She was very knowledgeable of Adobe software, professional and very understanding of my schedule. I am confident now on using the program after our classes. I highly recommend her! Thanks Sylvia!

Sylvia was an excellent teacher. She was forthcoming and shared any resources that she had and explained the topics spoken about very well. She has experience with producing garments and can teach the steps beautifully.

I loved this lesson with Silvia. As an experienced fashion designer she could introduce me into certain steps that are required to produce my own clothes. This was very interesting and helpful. Thx a lot!
