first lesson

It was a great start to a very dense and interesting program that only deepened my enthusiasm to learn more about it

Patient, Knowledgeable, Helpful

Joe is helping me learn to animate in Maya! I’m thankful for the help. I’ve come to understand the program more since I started working with him, which in turn has made my life a lot easier :)

Claire, 10 lessons with Joe

Awesome Tutor

In only two sessions, Joe has been extremely helpful. We were able to cover the basics of Adobe Pr as well as more advanced controls. I would recommend him to anyone looking to further their video editing skills!

Excellent Tutor

He is so patience and easy to understand and I am so happy I was able to understand about Light (maya). I was so frustrated before I found him and now I am getting it.

Laura, 5 lessons with Joe

Patient, effective and personable.

Joe was an excellent, easy to understand instructor who listened and catered to my needs. Our first lesson covered a lot of material. He was patient with my questions and easy to converse with. Thank you, Joe! I'll be back for another lesson before long.
