I started with Macromedia Dreamweaver in 1997 after it became available and have viewed it as a aide to coding and not a replacement for.

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.

Yaakov, 3 lessons with Dan

Very helpful, patient, flexible

Dan helped walk me through a Photoshop assignment that I was struggling with and was extremely patient, as well as telling me tips and tricks that I don't think I would have ever found out about in my class. He responded to me immediately after I messaged him even though it was very late in the night, was free to tutor me 8 hours later when I had booked the session, and gladly accepted to tutor me weekly when I asked. I definitely got my money's worth, and the stress of not knowing how to use Photoshop is gone now because I'll have someone to help me on a regular basis. I highly recommend that you choose Dan as a tutor.
