SQL

SQL

I've been writing and training SQL throughout my 20 year career in corporate marketing. It's a powerful tool for uncovering trends, opportunities, risks, and relationships. Knowing how to write SQL empowers you with answers to your specific questions, without waiting in another department's queue or wading through reports built for other purposes. Lessons can start with simple joins and "where" clause filters, and progress to more sophisticated join strategies, derived tables/nested sub queries, and embedded calculations.

Great Lightroom assistance

Cindy is extremely knowledgeable and got me up and running in no time with getting LR working in my new desktop. I’ve been using the program for several years but wow did she show me some great things that I didn’t know bout! Super outgoing and a real pleasure to work with! Thanks, Cindy!

Craig, 1 lesson with Cindy

Knowledgeable and great communicator

I’m a small business owner and I needed advanced Excel help with an elaborate spreadsheet and Cindy was able to help me correct formulas and hide appropriate fields. Thanks, Cindy.

Michael , 2 lessons with Cindy

Extremely knowlegable

Cindy taught me how to evaluate a large group of pictures, save them so they are easily available and then to begin editing the photos. She taught me several new techniques for editing in Lightroom.

Howard, 33 lessons with Cindy

Knows her stuff!

We went over lightroom catalogs and their function, and recovered missing files. She also taught me the importance of where and when you backup the catalog. She answered every question I had...Thanks, Cindy

Donna, 4 lessons with Cindy

So knowledgeable and so patient

Cindy helped me untangle a difficult problem of my own creation in like Lightroom. At the same time, she taught me some tools to use in my on going work to prevent similar problems in the future.

Rebecca, 7 lessons with Cindy

Very knowledgeable

Cindy unraveled a months long problem which consisted of missing folders, duplicate images, etc. I wish that I would have found her months ago. As a side note: she was very understanding, and didn't make me feel like an idiot for creating such havoc!

Liz, 3 lessons with Cindy

Outstanding!!!

Cindy knows her stuff. I can’t imagine anyone more knowledgeable when it comes to Adobe products. She has worked with me on Lightroom and Photoshop. Give her a try, you won’t regret it.

Steve, 36 lessons with Cindy

Excellent tutor

We are extremely happy with Cindy and how she has been working with my daughter in helping her understand phonics. The lessons are well prepared and presented in a very kid friendly format. Thanks, Cindy!

Melissa, 7 lessons with Cindy

Talented coach who takes the fear out of learning

Cindy is helping me gain confidence that I can master aspects of photography that have been “black holes” for me. She guides me to what I need to learn, visualizes things I have never understood and shows me how to practice on my own. All this is done with deep listening and adjusting on the spot to my needs. She is incredibly open, sincere and approachable. I feel very lucky to have found her.
