"Great tutor with encyclopedic knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop plus heaven only knows what else."
David from San Francisco, CA on 7/31/11
I found Carl G. through a request I placed on WyzAnt. Several names were giving to me, but Carl was the only one to respond and I began two hour weekly sessions with him. His knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop is phenomenal and I have learned so much in our first three sessions that I am completely satisfied. Carl also instructed me in many keyboard shortcuts for operating my Mac computer -- a real time saver. Carl's manner is gentle, non-judgmental and patient. He adapts his instruction to your needs and desires and I look forward very much to working with him. I recommend him very highly as a tutor.
"Flexible, reliable, effective!"
Cindy from Redwood City, CA on 1/5/14
I've had two 2-hour sessions with Carl focusing on a variety of Photoshop techniques (among other Mac- and Adoble-related topics) and I have nothing but positive comments. Carl was incredibly flexible when it came to setting up a time to meet, he was (and is) available by phone regularly, he is patient, and he is very good at explaining concepts. I had some specific techniques I wanted to learn in a short period of time for a project on which I was working and Carl enabled me to understand them and immediately apply them in my work. I will absolutely set up additional sessions to deepen my understanding of "everything Adobe" and I may even set up a session with my son so he can learn new tricks in iMovie! I highly recommend Carl.

Very patient and conscientious; offered detailed explanations to all questions. I looked forward to our lessons and Carl made it fun and easy to learn a new computer skill.
"Enthusiastic, Knowledgeable, Accommodating "
Leslie from Redwood City, CA on 10/27/13
I run a non-profit and had many gaps in my computer skills. Carl has a wealth of knowledge in this arena and was able to teach me the skills I needed in a patient, clear and concise manner. I had many areas I wanted to work on, including photography, and Carl was able to assist me with all of my needs and never minded when I wanted to work on several different topics during a session. He always responds promptly when I require assistance and is flexible when it comes to scheduling a session. His positive outlook is refreshing and I plan on continuing to work with Carl in the future.
"Real help with tough problems."
Emily from Concord, CA on 10/16/13
The Mac is a beautiful computer, but it can be hard for beginners and even intermediate users to get past the "How do I ....?" stage. A couple of sessions with Carl have really unlocked the potential of the Macs in our small office. Not only did he solve some tough problems with patience and persistence, he's shown us how to do all kinds of things that make the Mac faster, easier and a pleasure to use. Carl communicates very well -- at our level -- without jargon and befuddlement. He listens, then digs right in with solutions from a vast store of Mac knowledge and experience. If you need a helping hand with your Mac, Carl may be the right tutor for you.

I am very happy with Carl as tutor. He is very well informed both about LightRoom and Mac operations, is clear in his instructions and is agreeable to work with.
"Excellent computer tutor, great graphic designer."
Juliet from San Francisco, CA on 3/5/13
Carl is a great computer tutor -- knowledgeable, personable, patient and reliable. In addition to helping me improve my computer skills, he's also a talented graphic designer who has helped me create posters, invitations and yearbook pages using In Design.
Josselyn from San Mateo, CA on 2/7/12
Carl helped me learn InDesign from scratch - I knew absolutely nothing and in a few lessons I was producing my own documents, able to create graphics, import pictures and text, align everything, and generate a 30 page publishable investment document. Very impressive! Carl was flexible on schedule, always on time, polite, and very patient.
Beverly from Novato, CA on 8/1/11
Carl is a great tutor - He has helped me with a cluster of issues that were so tangled I thought I'd never fix. With patience and expertise, he walked me through the maze and we got to a series of solutions together. My work flow has improved and I enjoy my digital photography once again. I recommend Carl as a tutor and a problem solver.
"Excellent instructor for Adobe Photoshop "
Rick from Orinda, CA on 4/19/11
Carl provided excellent training to start me on Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, after I had been using Apple iPhoto exclusively for several years. He introduced the key concepts and kept me on track during the session in a logical progression through the fundamentals of Photoshop. Importantly, because he also is a Mac tutor, he gave me useful advice on navigating Photoshop with my MacBook computer. I recommend Carl to anyone who wants to begin using Photoshop to organize, enhance, manipulate and share their photos.
