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.

Thorough and professional tutor

Chita's lessons have been extremely efficient and productive. For a working professional, this type of learning is critical. I would recommend her as a patient and highly knowledgeable teacher. She is very organized in her teaching style and a good listener.

Michele, 2 lessons with Chita

Extremely knowledgeable, focused, great communicator & fun!

GREAT tutoring session! Chita cleared up questions I've had and some I didn't know I had! Our session focused on Adobe Illustrator's Live Paint capabilities. Before our session, Chita asked me to send her questions so she could be clear on my issues. During the session, I shared my screen and she had me re-create a situation that focused on my topic. Chita watched me work in Adobe Illustrator, taught me skills and then we worked through what I had just learned to reinforce the skills. Because Chita has a deep theoretical understanding of Adobe Illustrator, she suggested tools and better workflows to increase my efficiency. It was a fun, and very productive session! I am VERY pleased with Chita's tutoring skills. I look forward to working with Chita again.

Thoroughly conversant in Photoshop! Clear and articulate teaching style. Warm, friendly and patient.

Being tutored by Chita was a real pleasure! Her knowledge and expertise with Photoshop was clearly second nature. It was wonderful to be taught by someone who knew her medium so well that I didn't have to suffer through the tutors own confusion of how to do what I was asking. As she was about to guide me through a particular process, she would pause a moment, give thoughtful consideration to which of many approaches possible was the best for me to learn, and then proceeded in a calm, articulate and efficient manner. Her use of analogies also made it easier for me to grasp some of the whys and ways of organizing in Lightroom and making sense of the flow of any given process in Photoshop. We covered how to take an image and completely change all the colors within, the differences between 'save' and 'save as', how to get the proper specifications for the kind of file (TIFF, JPG, etc.) needed for export to the printers, how to use 'finder' to locate missing images/files, the differences between 'adjustment layer' and 'layer' and 'fill layer', and the beginnings of how to build presets, in addition to a few other things. I am excited to practice the new skills she taught me. I can already see how they are going to change and expand my creative possibilities! I will be working with Chita again! She is a valuable resource for me and my work!

Jenny, 12 lessons with Chita

Chita was outstanding!

Efficient, patient, knowledegable, understanding, and certainly knows the Mac. Saving documents in the proper place; alphabetizing; enlarging and minimizing columns and what to do to highlight entire columns, etc.; printer help; Excel spreadsheet help, and assistance with different Apps. She's great!

Knowledge tutor

Chita was very descriptive in the lesson. She taught me some basics things I can use to edit my photos. I was overwhelmed with the thought of using Photoshop. I know feel comfortable navigating on site now and I'm eager to learn more .

Freda, 1 lesson with Chita

WOW - Super nice, super smart - great teacher!

Chita is so knowledgeable and very patient and effective in sharing that knowledge. Great follow-up to the lesson with notes too! I highly recommend her. Photoshop is a struggle - Chita makes it clear how to use it effectively!

Lynne, 2 lessons with Chita

Knowledgeable and friendly tutor!

I had one lesson, so far, with Chita and it was awesome! She was extremely prepared and had notes on everything I wanted to cover. I had barely used Photoshop before my lesson and Chita explained everything thoroughly and went at a pace that I could keep up with. She also took notes during our lesson so I could focus on what she was teaching me. I can't wait for another session. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Photoshop tutor!

Lauren, 4 lessons with Chita

Chita is the best!

My first lesson with Chita was great. She is very friendly, patient, and knowledgeable and is able to teach students in terms of where they are at. I have basically zero photoshop experience and she is great for someone who is a beginner. I am looking forward to working with her again in the future.

Maria, 1 lesson with Chita
