I am a graphic design professional and have been working with Photoshop for as long as it has been in existence. I can teach the application from a very basic beginner level and up.

Very good tutor

Did several Photoshop exercices that were very useful. Needed to learn the basics. She reviewed with me the basics and was patient and very nice. Would recommend her. Very good tutor.

Pascal, 1 lesson with Lauren

Awesome to work with

Lauren is brilliant with Adobe Illustrator. She answered all of my questions and was able to expand on each one, teaching me more than I thought I would learn in an hour. Highly recommended.

Walker, 3 lessons with Lauren

great teacher

The lessons with Lauren are great. Just after few lessons I am able to work on Photoshop on my own. She not only shows you how the program works, but also teaches you how to navigate when you are lost. I appreciate also her artistic input in my project. Approachable, flexible and easy to communicate with.

Monika, 4 lessons with Lauren

Wonderful lesson

Lauren was very informative, patient, and easy to work with. She answered my questions fully and taught me some great shortcuts . I hope to work with her again soon.

Impressive Tutor Using Everything at Her Command to Undo Years of My Fruitless Doodling and Stick Figure Drawing

I believe, and I hope I am right, that I have made a quantum leap in beginning to get that representing light is an extremely important key to more authentic pencil drawing. This could not have been possible without Lauren's patience, talent, and willingness to generously share herself and her artistic process. That she is highly evolved as a teacher, artist, and person is very evident. I am humbled to be her student.
