Well Informed and Patient

Rita was wonderful and helped me discover what I needed to do before I could set up my portfolio website. She is very patient and knowledgable. I would recommend her to help anyone needing help with a website project in Squarespace.

Adobe photoshop beginner lesson

Great overview of the layout of the menu as well as concentration on the key skill I was looking for! Very satisfied first-time customer. Will most likely book a future session with Rita after I’ve used photoshop a bit.

Chrissie, 1 lesson with Rita

Kind, Caring and Trustworthy Tutor!

Rita is SO sweet and knowledgable. 100% recommend her. She helped me better understand my business processes, and made me feel more confident in myself and my abilities. Will definitely book her again!

Sean, 1 lesson with Rita

Thank you for your encouragement!

I have been doing ongoing classes with Rita to learn photoshop and create the first piece on my portfolio. Rita showed me how to use most needed as well as advanced techniques and gave suggestions how to improve my first creation and now I have a lovely ad for portfolio and know how to create it in Photoshop. Most importantly, I love how encouraging Rita is! It really helps me overcome some of my fears around being a designer and move with it as a new career path 🥰

Knowledgable & Patient Tutor

Great session. Rita has been a fantastic and patient tutor. I needed to learn the foundational elements to begin working in AI. Her sessions are quickly giving me the confidence to try new things in Illustrator. Looking forward to more advanced skills as we continue our sessions.

In only a few lessons she has taught me so many great tips that I am already using easily, she identified problems and mistakes I was making while always being positive. I look forward to our sessions and the time flies! I definitely recommend Rita!

My first tutoring lesson with Rita went well. She showed me how to navigate through Photoshop, and taught me tricks on how to clean up blemishes on pictures. I recommend her to anyone who is using Adobe and needs guidance.
