Sessions are minimum two hours in Manhattan or Brooklyn. Appointments are first-come, first-serve.
I am a retired professor of art history and former dean at Rutgers and know good instruction. David qualifies and more.
I am putting together a website and am totally self taught. I needed to tweak the site as well as understand certain principles I could not master on my own. David K. was terrific. Most importantly, he understands thoroughly the two programs I am using--Dreamweaver and Photoshop CS6. He is easily able to analyze the problem and then suggests solutions. He will show you how to do it and then make sure you can do it yourself. And he teaches you the principles involved as well as to make sure it is the most efficient way to do it.
Something I spent hours trying to figure out on my own - he was able to help me solve the problem in 15 minutes.
I was impressed--but more importantly, I am delighted with what I learned.
I am looking forward to my next lesson. Bravo David K!
I really enjoy working with David. He is super intelligent and has a real mastery of the material. He is patient and makes learning the material fun and easy through conversation—not just him lecturing me on what to do. In addition, it never feels like he is talking down to me, which is great. He is a wonderful teacher.
I highly recommend David for anyone who needs one-to-one help and attention. He's very patient and can explain the small steps for you. I had several sessions with him and he was able to assist me with HTML, CSS, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Web Designing. Thanks to him, my website is finally looking like a website!
My son made more progress in two hours with David than he had in half a semester with his professor. He was proficient in all my son's needs, including HTML, CSS and Flash, but my appreciatiion stems more from his patience and communication skills with his student. I don't believe in miracles, but what David was able to accomplish is the closest thing I can imagine. I highly recommend him as a tutor.
I went to David K. after being stuck for months on creating a Wordpress site for my Music. David not only answered my questions clearly, he directed me and got me going and I now feel on much more solid ground to finish the Web site I started. I would very highly recommend to anyone who wants help in these areas, he is a highly knowledgeable and gifted teacher who takes a very technical subject and breaks it down so that it is clear.
David helped me both design and code a website for my grad thesis. I came to him three weeks before my deadline and he has helped me quite a bit to get the site on track and looking good. Very personable and easygoing.
I chose David K as a tutor for Adobe Illustrator / Photoshop and website advice and design. He is extremely knowledgeable and has written books on these subjects which was impressive - especially the ones "For Dummies". That appealed to me since I am super-novice at all things technical. He is very thorough and slow enough for a beginner. He listens to my ideas - advises various approaches - and helps me get to where I want to go.
I would recommend David to anyone who is looking for training at any level with Adobe.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
