Adobe Illustrator Knowledge

Devin knew how to create the effects I wanted in Illustrator and did a good job of guiding me through the process. We were able to accomplish the things I needed to know in one session about creating brush strokes. I look forward to working with him again in the future when I need assistance.

Great Tutor for Beginners

Indeed, Devin is a knowledgeable and patient tutor. He spent two hours going through the basics and building a sample work product. He did all of this on really short notice! Thanks, Devin. CLK

It was a pleasure to work with Will! I hope that he is doing great!

Just what I needed

Devin is not only a master of Adobe Illustrator, he also has an excellent teaching methodology, very conversational and easy to follow. I appreciated being able to ask about specific functionalities and instantly get instruction and best practice suggestions for them. Highly recommend!

Tutor responded:

Excellent! Happy to help Chris!

Knowledgable, helpful and experienced.

DEVIN SHOWED ME AROUND THE Basics of Cinema 4D. We went through what each icon does in the software and how to manipulate it. He helped me to put the pieces together since I was so confused by the software. Excellent Professor, he did not rush me. Instead, he took his time and answered all of my questions.

It was a pleasure working with you Tracey! Good luck in the future!

knowledgeable tutor

very skilled in both fusion 360 technically and how to teach it well such that not only are your exact questions answered, but the why, and they miss understanding that lead to the questions are also addressed, will be using his services again if ever needed. highly recommended

fusion 360 tutoring

Devin has been a major help with learning how to drawl with fusion, his ability to draw with fusion 360 is super impressive! 100 percent recommend using him. I've done about 5 sessions so far with different drawings!

Tutor responded:

Our lessons were lots of fun! Happy to help Jerrod.

Spot on instruction.

Being a novice at Solidworks, I needed help on the basics. That's where it started but moved into some complex efforts. Nonetheless, got the drawing completed and I'm off to the machine shop.

Glad we could get it done Joe. Let me know if you ever need more help.

Expert tutoring from Devin

Devin is not only an expert in Solidworks - Fusion 360, his ability to explain concepts and tools allowed me to get to my end goal more quickly than I imagined. I had a specific project in mind that entailed three interrelated pieces and Devin got me the results I was hoping for whiled learning what I needed along the way. I also appreciate Devin's patience as I stumbled from time to time.

Happy to work with you arnold. THis project is a lot of fun to see get finished. I even learned a few things myself while working on it!

Great Introduction

I have been messing around with Cinema 4D for about 14 years but have never progressed beyond very basic modeling but due to my working industry changing , I decided this year that I would set a goal to push myself to learn beyond the basics of modeling. I personally learn best from 1:1 tutoring, so when I found Devin's page on Wyzant, I thought I would give it a go. This introductory class for me, was to really see if I connected with Devin and see if what I wanted to learn, was something he was confident doing. I came to the class with some existing models that I had created, which Devin looked over and reassured me that my modeling techniques were going in the right direction. He also showed me some modeling tips and tricks which was really helpful to see. I really connected with Devin and can tell he knows a lot about the world of 3D. I will be booking in more sessions with Devin in the future as I know I will have more modeling issues and want to learn Redshift which is something he specialises in. Thanks Devin
