Comprehensive and Personalized

William was an exceptional tutor. We were able to accomplish much more than I anticipated. He individualized the session based on my experience and needs. Bill was professional and responsive; I highly recommend him!

Brooke , 3 lessons with William

Knowledgeable and easy to work with

He showed us some short-cuts and work-a-rounds to issues that we were having trouble with. Helped us design and use proper templates. Leared how to use space off to the sides of publication to keep frequently used items - color blocks, text blocks, etc.

John, 1 lesson with William

I highly recommend him !!

I met Bill yesterday. He came 10 minutes before we started the lesson. He taught well organized structure about the HTML and CSS knowledge. So now I could have better understanding about the coding. He explained very well with various types of examples, so I could understand more easily in his instruction. If you want to learn about the web coding from one of expert, I highly recommend Bill!! He is awesome!

Sara, 1 lesson with William

Very helpful, knowledgeable, and patient the entire tutoring lesson

During my lesson William went over the HTML template with me in detail. He also helped me to install Notepad++ on my computer, helped me with my homework, and answered all of my questions and concerns that I may have about my class so far. We also went over CSS, different tags, ordered and unordered Lists, and he showed me different shortcuts on the computer to make navigating easier. Overall a great session and I feel a lot more comfortable with the material.

Excellent instructor and very knowledgeable

I learned more about photography in 3 hours with Bill than I had learned during all of the group photography classes I've taken over the years. The hands on approach and receiving direct answers to my specific questions was invaluable . Bill has a wealth of knowledge & has the gift of conveying that knowledge and experience in an easy to understand manner. I highly recommend Bill Shea to share his photography and Photo Shop skills with you. In my opinion it was money well spent .

Excellent Experience! I highly recommend Bill & will hire him again.

Bill was so helpful. I explained my goals to him and we were able to focus our time on learning these skills. I'm starting up a small business and he was able to help me with my website design and also learning Photoshop software. HIs was quick to respond to messages. We discussed via message what my goals were prior to meeting which helped us be able to focus right in on these specific areas when we met. He was very patient and incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him as a tutor. I definitely plan to schedule another time with him. Thank you so much Bill!

Fantastic teacher, highly recommend!

I went to Bill for help learning Adobe InDesign in preparation for a new job. When he started tutoring me I was completely clueless about this software and graphic design in general. After two sessions with Bill I feel so much more comfortable with it and am even having fun! Bill is a terrific teacher--very patient and great at explaining things in ways I can understand. In just four hours he taught me what probably would have taken me months to learn on my own. I highly recommend him if you need help learning InDesign or one of the many other areas he is an expert in. Money well spent!
