My third lesson was all about drawing pictures and taking notes as Tony went through the exact steps I needed to edit my photos in Photoshop and PS Lightroom when I don't have Tony standing there guiding me. After explaining what I wanted to do, he was able to just show me the steps needed. In other words, he's a Pro at Photoshop. Like I said before, I can't ask for a better teacher and coach than Tony.

Tony is awesome! He has extensive knowledge of photography, cameras, lenses, lighting, photoshop and has his own studio right in his house. I couldn't ask for a better or more cooperative teacher. Will be returning this week for my second followup appointment.

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

Marlisa is an awesome teacher. I took a pottery class at Glen Echo years ago and was very disappointed, but with Marlisa's excellent teaching skills and enthusiasm for the art, I left her studio feeling like I wanted to buy a wheel and start throwing. I appreciate her hands-on approach and always felt taken care of attended to. Marlisa is a true artist and excellent teacher!!! I highly recommend her.

Marlisa is an excellent teacher! She was patient and kind and very helpful! I went to her house for a pottery lesson a few days ago, and I was very apprehensive going into it, because I tried pottery a few years ago and had a less than satisfactory experience. However, I'm so glad that I did this lesson anyway, because I had so much fun! Marlisa is an excellent and patient teacher, and she first shows you exactly what you need to do, and then helps you with every step as you do it yourself. She gives you the chance to practice, but really knows what she's doing so she can help you correct your mistakes, also. I live in California, but if I lived in the DC area, Marlisa would definitely be my #1 choice for a ceramics teacher!

He was great! He was able to drive to us and we learned the basics of Photoshop. I would highly recommend him to other co-workers and friends.
