Patience Overload

I'm so happy that I hired Curtis. Unlike some tutors who know so much but have a hard time teaching, Curtis is a wealth of information and knowledge, yet knows how to deliver. I am overwhelmed with the thought of graphics but Curtis answers my questions, shows me how certain things work in Adobe and makes sure to say, "write that down". Right now, we are working in InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. We are working on creating maps and I learned how to use the scan feature, see how layers work within a document and being able to use the commands. While I am still overwhelmed with learning something new, Curtis makes it fun and I look forward to my lessons with him.

I was totally overwhelmed with trying to understand InDesign. Curtis showed me simple tricks to make the program less intimidating. I'm anxious to practice everything I learned!
