I used Aperture for years to adjust my photos, but when Apple stopped supporting it, I subscribed to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. LR is comparable to Aperture, but neither does a good job of fixing a blown out sky; PS offers several methods of dealing with this problem, none of them particularly simple. PS is a complex, daunting professional tool and I was stymied and discouraged. Nick taught me how to use PS to solve my problem and gave me confidence that I could, with study and practice, learn how to use PS to solve other problems. The important thing is that Nick listened to me as to my goal and directed his teaching to that goal. He showed enormous patience as I interrupted him with questions every 20 seconds. To sum up: it's unrealistic to try to learn PS in three hours. I needed specific knowledge to get over a difficult hurdle, and Nick taught me what I needed to use PS to solve my problem. I believe that I can now go forward to do a much better job adjusting and developing my photos, and that I have a better grasp on how to learn more about PS. Thank you, Nick.

About Jessica

Hi. This is Jessica H. Currently I just graduated from San Francisco conservatory of music with Masters degree. I am a very patient person who has huge passion about working with kids.I have been teaching piano over 15 years. Since I have been teaching a quite long time. I have had students who past the highest level of ABRSM exams. I can be more serious and push a student to get ahead, or simply teach to have fun - to appreciate and enjoy music. I have learned, is to expect the best, pay closest attention to the students - to what they are ready for, what they want, what they are struggling
with, and have a good sense of humor. Inspiring and developing students passion into music.

About DeAnna

Hello! I have been teaching piano since 1982 when I finished my degree in piano performance. I also have a Doctorate in Piano Performance, and have an artist diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Salzburg, Austria. However, I think what makes me special is that I combine a friendly approach to teaching with high standards. My students do well in competitive and non-competitive events. And, they have fun!

I started taking lessons from DeAnna about a month ago and I can really feel myself fall in love with learning to play Piano again. I am looking forward to practice every night and lessons every week with her. DeAnna is a very patient and encouraging teacher. I really like that her lessons are structured and she has very specific tasks (that are obtainable) for me to complete every week. I am really looking forward to taking many more lessons from her!

Before taking lessons, I had picked up some chords and strumming patterns from the Internet. Over the 10 lessons with Andrew, I learned music theory fundamentals, how to practice the guitar on my own, how to pick out chords from any song, and even got to participate in group lessons. Even though I had to stop taking lessons because work got too busy, I learned a lot and now have a better idea how to improve my guitar skills.
