Rachael was patient and knowledgeable. She was easy to work with and well worth it! I recommend Rachael. She came prepared and followed through on each aspect of the lesson. She was prompt and professional while still easy to work with.
Rachael did a great job of helping me with my questions about InDesign and Illustrator. I brought work that I already had in process, and she patiently sat with me to figure out what I had done for the setup and how to help me understand the tools to move forward more easily. Thanks!
Rachel was great to work with and had an innate ability to make challenging programs seem simple and not so intimidating. She pivots well from teaching basic principles to applying more advanced techniques with real life industry examples. She is also extremely friendly and has a fun personality to go along with teaching her graphic design talents. She made the work not seem boring at all.
Rachael is very alert, engaging and warm. I had an excellent lesson with her and left with a sense of confidence.
Rachael met all my expectations. She is very knowledgeable and has great command of Adobe Illustrator. She quickly showed me so many helpful steps in the use of AI.
I needed to learn basics of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator asap for my work. I contacted few tutors, and I decided to have a lesson with Rachael.
She is very nice and easy to talk to. I had 2 lessons from her so far and I'm planning to have more. I've already learned a lot and my co-workers are very surprised how much I can do now.
Rachael is superb!
I reached out to Rachael to learn the basics of InDesign and Photoshop for my work.
Coming to Rachael, my proficiency with the Adobe Suite was non-existent. I mean, Photoshop can be daunting; am I right?
Rachael is an extremely friendly and delightful person. Simply watching her work (or 'play') on InDesign and Photoshop not only gave me the building blocks to get started on these programs but also the confidence to approach each with enough playfulness to make it fun.
As a teacher, Rachael was very interested in catering the sessions precisely to my needs. She's a terrific listener and I felt welcome to steer the tutoring sessions in whichever direction I felt most relevant to my work. I was also encouraged to provide constant feedback regarding the effectiveness and usefulness of each lesson.
Finally, Rachael has the most charming work studio in Echo Park out of which she can hold lessons. This made our sessions incredibly efficient.
If you're looking for a working InDesign and Photoshop tutor, I strongly recommend snagging Rachael now before her schedule fills up and her premium increases. I will definitely be scheduling more sessions with her whenever I need to increase my skills on Adobe Suite!
I had a lot of fun with Rachael H. She is a great tutor and helped me master the tools of Illustrator. I will definitely recommend her if you need help on any Adobe programs. She has great knowledge of Illustrator and Photoshop and is very patient. Great experience overall!
Rachael is a true life saver. She's always punctual and gets right into the lessons. She's very thorough in her explanations. All around, she's a very good teacher. She's very dependable and super knowledgeable in every form of graphic design!
Rachel is the most patient tutor I've ever had! I walked in not knowing anything about Illustrator and she taught me so much. Thank you Rachel!
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.
