Illustrator can get a bit tricky.
Many people don't like to use it because it's not very user-friendly.
But with the help of some useful tips, life can be made a lot easier in Illustrator.

Attention: Illustrator is like sports - only 10% is theory, the remaining 90% is practice. For every hour of class, you should practice on your own for about 8 to 9 hours.
Skipping or significantly reducing the practice time will be equivalent to throwing your money away: if you don't take the time to repeatedly apply what you have learned in the class, I can guarantee you that you will forget everything you've learned and will not be able to make progress.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class: A desktop computer with Adobe Illustrator CC. Good internet connection.

Please read all Terms and Conditions on my profile main page in the "About" section.

Tricia O.
Ana has been an amazing Photoshop teacher. What I am most impressed with besides her in-depth knowledge is her passion to understand my goals and build a custom path to get there. Ana is very patient and goes the extra mile. I haven't been impressed with whatever TakeLessons software is provided for screen sharing. It's problematic getting to a place where it's functional and the screen sharing is blurry which is not good, Ana - AMAZING! Software - Needs some fine tuning for Photoshop type lessons. It may work well for guitar lessons but when details are needed to learn it's just not there.
Susan
Ana is an extremely patient, highly knowledgeable teacher with great communication skills. I was starting at a very basic level with no previous knowledge, and she made sure I understood each concept before moving on to the next one. She also came very well prepared to teach me exactly what I needed to learn. Highly recommend.
Susan
Ana is absolutely amazing; I explained that I am a slow learner and she went through Photoshop steps with extremely clear instruction at my own pace, making sure I understand the concepts, not just memorizing steps. Also sent me links to instructional videos to prepare for my class. Among the best instructors I have ever had in my life.

Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him.

Whether you’re a local wedding photographer looking to enhance your final images, a graphic designer working for a major advertising firm, or just someone who’s interested in sharpening up some old family photos, Adobe Photoshop can get the job done.

But like any tool, Photoshop is only as effective as its user. If you understand the ins and outs of this powerful editing suite, you’ll be able to perform magic on photos and videos alike. Without this knowledge, however, even opening a file correctly may be a struggle.

That’s why my Photoshop class is essential for anyone who wants to know how to use Adobe’s premiere image editing software effectively.

Whether you’re a complete newcomer or someone who merely needs to brush up on some of its more powerful (and complicated) features, this class will offer everything you need to take your Photoshop game to the next level.

And since this class breaks everything down into simple, easy-to-find categories, you can even treat it ...

Junia is very professional, encouraging, and patient. We conducted our session in French only. This helped me to "absorb" the language. She also was very organized in her methodology of teaching. I look very forward to our next session (class)!
Emma
Excellent teaching. My daughter had her first lesson today and said "I now understand a whole topic in Chemistry that I haven't understood all year in school." Very clear instruction that was very helpful. Highly recommended.
