Very patient. We went through some technical issues that were a struggle for me and Jacob was very helpful and persistent in getting to solutions.
Tehila
I had a great experience with Jacob as an instructor. He is knowledgeable and his advice was relevant and to the point. He invested time to critique my work and even sent detailed notes. Highly recommend!
Jenn
I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

For six grade levels, I had handwriting as an official school subject. I was expected to print Roman letters correctly, write cursive script at the correct angle and form, and incorporate my own unique style into proper penmanship. I also learned how to hold the writing implement the correct way so as not to strain the hand or fingers and maintain a steady flow of writing. I later took calligraphy as an art course during one year of high school. I have helped elementary school and middle school students practice and improve their handwriting, manuscript and cursive, and I can assist adults as well.

About Natalie

During the past 9 years, my goal as a tutor has been steadfast: I want to help you help yourself. As the saying goes, you have to be open to accepting help before you can be helped. I understand that because we are all students our entire lives; I know from my own experience how hard it is to learn

Jonathan is without a doubt a talented professional photographer / artist. Yet he has adapted himself to working with a novice trying to navigate a new digital camera before a big Patagonia vacation of a lifetime. Whether you are a beginner like I am or a professional photographer looking to improve your game, Jonathan will exceed your expectations. I like his patient and calm approach to my questions and after only two lessons I have already improved so much.
Jeff W.
I have learned a lot from Jonathan so far. He has been very helpful in helping me understand PhotoShop and Lightroom. I would highly recommend him.

"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."
