In most cases I require my students to have a working knowledge of HTML before venturing into Dreamweaver. I've been a practicing graphic designer for more than 20 years.

Adobe illustrator

Dan was very patient and knowledgeable, I will definitely get more lessons soon. I will also recommend to my friends and co worker’s. This is for Wyzant you guy’s shouldn’t have a minimum on the words for reviews this is not fair to the instructors on here most people don’t want to sit here and write a book we just want to leave a short honest review..

Dan is all good!

Dan taught me Adobe XD. He was super patient and thorough. I was so intimidated by the program. No more. He helped me through that. Thanks Dan! Here’s to more days of learning XD!

Knows what's what

We are writing a very complex book with lots of photographs, paintings, drawings, and text. Getting it from a docx to an epub has been a mess! Dan W. convinced me that much of the problem is with Adobe and Microsoft and their inability to play nice together. He showed me some things that helped me get a jump on untangling the tangle. Much appreciated!

I trusted Dan my project, and he did a fantastic job. He is trustworthy and highly knowledgeable. He is an honest person who promised to help on time and kept his word. I would highly recommend him to anyone!!!

HTML5

Very very patient as all kinds of technical issues hit but once that was all ironed out it was really good to get a hands on look at everything. I often need to see something first to try to understand it. Yep, Dan has me walking a bit taller going into class this week.
