Excellent ability to teach and make info relatable

I am learning Adobe Illustrator for a college course. It’s obvious Dennis is a pro at teaching a very difficult subject. I’m in a Fashion Design program and Adobe Illustrator can be quite difficult to master. Dennis is able to translate in an understandable format. I highly recommend him.!

Friendly and helpful tutor

Dennis was a patient and friendly teacher. He listened to my questions and helped me slowly learn the tools needed to achieve my goals. I look forward to working with him again.

His knowledge of In-Design was great. He was very patient and supportive. We were able to accomplish a lot in just one hour. I would highly reccomend him as a tutor.

Susan, 2 lessons with Dennis

Easy to understand

Dennis is teaching me photoshop step by step and is really helping me understand the tools. He is really helpful! I have weekly sessions after my class to cement what I have been taught and so far so good. I understand a lot more after Dennis than before I used him for a session.

Ashley, 3 lessons with Dennis

Dennis is skilled with Adobe Illustrator, has a great eye and is clearly experienced in conceptual design. He's capable and offers a lot. I highly recommend Dennis.

Bina, 4 lessons with Dennis

Very easy to work with

Dennis has a personality and style that makes it very easy to work with him. He helped me edit a photograph in Photoshop. I am an amateur photographer with a novice knowledge of editing software. He gave me clear explanations and examples. I was able to understand him easily. I am excited to know that I am able to do simple post processing edits of my photos after just one lesson. I recommend him and I will use him again in the future.

Expert in the Adobe suite and in teaching

Dennis is not only a fabulous tutor but also extremely fast at solving any issue you may have with your files/projects. I've learned more with him than with any other tutor. I highly recommend him.

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

One of the most patient teachers i have ever trained with. I currently attend a rigorous art & design program. This college semester started off very rocky for me with personal emergencies which effected homework deadlines. However, Dennis off the bat helped from drowning with Photoshop. Very soon, with every single assignment completed, i felt my competency and confidence increasing. In photoshop we went over key tool topics such as, selections, layer mask, adjustment layers, & filters. He showed me how to break down and understand seemingly difficult ideas into easy steps. Dennis is always prepared and able to give me feed back on brand new projects i become stuck on. I can unequivocally assert that working with Dennis secured the ability understand Photoshop and to pass my design class. I plan on doing more lessons with him to strengthen my Adobe skills. Thank you so much, Dennis!
