I learned so much in one session with Ron. It was amazing. I scheduled a session with him while I was visiting relatives out of town, so I am looking forward to setting up another appointment the next time I am in the area. He was able to relay a great deal of information without making me feel dumb.
I have enjoyed two sessions with Ron and as a busy Silicon Valley tech employee do not have time to waste and needed a tutor who had two basic qualifications:
(1) Expert knowledge
(2) Ability to teach
Ron clearly has both and I also must comment on his "flexibility" yet structured methodical approach to building a solid foundation, review to ensure comprehension, and jump to a topic of my personal interest and then back to building basics.
He has a tremendous personal presence and patience.
I will be taking many hours of instruction from him over this next year.
Very pleased with my decision and this review is after 5.5 hours of tutoring.
Confidently can recommend to anyone.
March 1, 2013 My third lesson with Ron continued to validate his flexibility and adaptive teaching style. It became obvious that I needed more attention to my camera skills if I wanted to benefit from the ACR and Photoshop capabilities.
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.
