I've taught at 3 colleges and over 20 companies and enjoy teaching. It is my calling. I've taught folks of all ages—from 6 to 76.Over the years I have developed my own teaching method for people who want to learn about computer applications and I call it the "C H I P" method:
There are five different ways to learn so I teach using the method that works best. Some students must read, some can only learn when they see, then do, and some learn in other ways. When I see "that look" and I KNOW that look, I will try another teaching method until my student "gets it."
I don't think any questions are dumb. It's okay for a student to occasionally have to run outside and do the "primal scream" because learning new concepts can sometimes be frighting or frustrating, but as a teacher, I believe that is unforgivable so I promise I will not lose my patience.
I am a proficient tutor using Illustrator, to Photoshop and Flash, to InDesign or DreamWeaver and other Adobe software—never fear Cher is here. Remember I am what I do teaCHER.

I haven't been so excited about learning since I was a kid! Cherie jumped right in there and gave me tools and ideas that will save me five times the amount I am paying for her lesson. I can't wait to work with her again!
I like that she was willing to teach me what I need to know and not just basic skills. Being a business owner is tough and learning tools to save money are what it's all about!
I really enjoyed working with Cherrie. I am sadly lacking in computer skills, and so really appreciated the time she spent reviewing basics before moving on to the specific skills I wanted to acquire. Her sense of humor kept things light and relaxing.
I have had several tutoring lessons with Cherrie. She is an absolute Photoshop Master and I would HIGHLY recommend her as a tutor. She has an impressive understanding of Photoshop and is equally skilled in teaching this information. If you are considering a tutor for Photoshop, you will not be disappointed in choosing Cherrie. The skills that I have gained from her have been priceless.
Thank you so much for the glowing review!
I am looking forward to working more with you. Your children illustrations are so cute and fun to work with. I can't wait to see your first illustration created entirely on the computer!
It has been a wonderful experience working with Cherrie. I have been utilizing her services for training on my new iMac desktop. For the past 30+ years I have worked in a Windows environment and found that I needed help getting up to speed in the Apple environment. Cherrie is calm, patient, and very knowledgeable in various areas of hardware and software. She is very easy to work with. My experience has been wonderful. I highly recommend Cherrie's services.
I've had a great time exploring your Mac with you. You're one of the most fun clients I've had the opportunity to work with. I look forward to delving into your new Adobe Creative Suite!
Excellent instructor! Cherrie really knew what she was doing and was to explain things in a very succinct manner without trying to show off her technical abilities. I strongly recommend her services and will call her again.
Cherrie sounded perfect on the phone. I told her I needed someone extremely patient as I am a full blown adult A.D.D. sufferer. I need to do things over and be able to write things down and navigate on my own. She was great and is very knowledgeable about Apple products and IPhoto which is what I needed her for. We covered a lot on our first 2 hour meeting and look for to her coming out again. She treated me with respect and was kind and patient.
Cherrie was a great tutor and very friendly. I had many questions and she not only answered them but allowed me to fully understand what she was doing and saying. Cherrie even showed me pointers and other creative ideas on what to do with the project I was working on. When I am in need of more help, I will be sure to call her!
Cherrie has been teaching a software program to me and she explains each piece in detail. She is easy to understand and talk too. Most importantly it is easy to ask questions if I get stuck. Cherrie shows her previous teaching experience in how she moves through the material and guides you along. She has a natural ability of demonstrating and explaining and helping people understand difficult material.
Cherrie doesn't waste your time and you get exactly what you are looking for out of each session. I have been fortunate to find Cherrie as a tutor, she understands my unique needs in scheduling, coming to my home and that I have a medical condition. I actually tried contacting other tutors, and Cherrie was the one to quickly respond to my request.
Cherrie is prompt to every session. She sends e-mails and communicates with you as a student in a very professional way. I am so lucky to have found such a great tutor! I would recommend Cherrie as a tutor for all the topics on her resume' knowing that she is a teacher at heart and will provide a wonderful experience for a student.
Cherrie is fantastic. I am taking lessons in Illustrator and she knows every aspect of the software. She really listens to what I want and tailor makes it for me. Her extensive knowledge of other design programs is very valuable. On top of all that she is patient and eager to accommodate her students.
Cherrie J. has been tutoring me in the transition from older software to Adobe CS5, including InDesign, Distiller, Illustrator and PhotoShop. She is experienced and patient. She understands my needs and learning style. I feel fortunate to have selected Cherrie J.
Thanks Kathy! Because you're such a great graphic designer and understand how the whole process works it's a joy working with you. You've actually taught me a thing or two about typography as we've ventured deeper into the world of "Adobe!"
Cherrie was absolutely wonderful!! I am a beginner and she was so patient and helpful. I feel grateful that she was my coach!!!
Thank you so much! I had a great time working with you. You're a good student and it was fun getting to know you. I look forward to continuing to teach you more about your Mac.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
