I won't try to dazzle you with how much I know, but in turn will teach you what you need in order to work effectively with any of these programs. You will learn real-world application of the program features.
And, most importantly, you will learn what you want and need in order to accomplish your goals.

My students have ranged in age from high-school age to 87 years of age.

My approach will take you through learning material that is relevant to your needs, as well as the ins and outs of topics that are important to you. You will become familiar with the "what if's", shortcuts, surprises, and tips that help you work smarter, faster and confidently in the the knowledge of your newfound skills.

Desktop Publishing

I have worked in the Desktop Publishing field since 1990, when I got my first Mac. Since then I have created numerous documents: newsletters, brochures and manuals, for clients and myself. I have created the layouts for several books, designed and created posters, calendars, web pages, as well as worked with clients on designing the interior text and graphics contents of their books. This included editing and formatting text and creating or editing graphic images. I have a bachelor's degree in Architecture and am a Certified Interior Designer, where we are taught the elements and fundamentals of design. These transferable tools helped greatly in the field of Desktop Publishing. As a current instructor at Schoolcraft College, and consultant, I work regularly with graphic programs like Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and Acrobat to create training and supplemental documents.

Knowledgeable and patient with a calming voice.

I had been struggling to teach myself photoshop for the last three weeks. In 1 hour Chita was able to share her knowledge and calmly walk me through an initial assignment. The entire time explaining the step by step processes that I will be using in the future. She also showed me how to record our session so it can be viewed when our session ended. I've gone from an doubting Patti to an online tutoring convert that can't wait for our next session. Chita is a wonderful teacher!!!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Chita was incredibly helpful as we worked through some general questions about Adobe InDesign and challenges in organising files across multiple programs. Thank you for a great session - I learned a lot and am already applying it to some current projects!

THE BEST tutor!

Chita's expanse knowledge allowed her to jump right in to where I needed the most help. She took the time to listen to my questions and provided instruction based on information I sent her ahead of time. There are many tutorials out there but nothing beats talking one-on-one with a knowledgeable, friendly, and patient person who will explicitly meet your needs! Worth every penny. Thank you, Chita!

Knowledgeable and patient

The most important thing I like about Chita is she is clearly knowledgeable about Adobe and takes her time with making sure you understand. Adobe is not an easy program to master. It helps tremendously with having a tutor who has patience.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Chita and I accomplished everything I set out to learn! She was great. I hadn't use InDesign for a few years and needed a good review - she was awesome and I'm on my way to working in InDesign again!

Diane, 1 lesson with Chita

Chita is knowledgeable and patient...I couldn't ask for a better tutor!

Today everything that could go wrong with my computer did go wrong. I was not able to learn how to use photo shop, but Chita was so kind as to show me what to do to get to photoshop installed. She was interested in what it important to me in order to grow my business. Her suggestions and homework assignments have given me life.....I believe that I can do it and I will because of the detailed knowledge she shared with me.

Informed. Patient. Quick. Focussed.

I have been working on a long - form project with Chita. She is a joy to work with, keeps me on track, and is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Photoshop. Highly recommended.

She saved my life (AKA my job)

Chita is an amazing, patient, intimately knowledgeable and thorough instructor. She literally taught me how to do my new job, which included a brand new responsibility of publishing booklets. She used my document as the learning platform and took me step-by-step through what I needed to do. She was a like a surgeon who masterfully understood what my problems were and taught me step by step how to fix my document. She's is Dr. inDesign, master designer.
