Great Teacher

Wow! William was a great teacher and broke down how to use Adobe Illustrator into easy, manageable steps. He was patient and thorough. He taped the session so I'll be able to review and practice on my own. I really appreciate that. We had a three hour session today and I'm going to book him again soon to learn even more. Highly recommend!

Bill, great tutor, exactly what I needed.

Bill, did a great job of assessing my skill level and the work I needed to get done. Creating a very well organized and focused lesson that was perfect for my needs. A born teacher, I look forward to working with him again soon.

Great Teacher

Bill takes you through the process in a logical manner. Understanding the the fundamentals is the first step, followed by successfully learning important tasks in the creation of a design. All this was achieved in the first session. I'm looking forward to learning even more next time.

Extraordinary

Bill is an extraordinary teacher, coach, mentor, and tutor! I thought I just needed PowerPoint help, but I found I also needed Adobe Photoshop help as well. Finding someone well versed in all these areas has helped me develop a very professional presentation for my dental colleagues! Kudos to Bill!!

John, 8 lessons with William

Bill is excellent at building a firm foundation for students and their projects!

Bill was immediately able to correct fundamental problems with my publishing project. He has a tremendous amount of practical knowledge and was able to teach me the correct approach to Adobe In Design software that was both interesting and fun! I feel that now the "mystery" of page setup is gone and my book project has a completely new momentum. My first lesson exceeded all expectations!

Great tutor - Learning so much

I have had a few sessions with William and so far I have learned so much about Photoshop and Illustrator. William has extensive knowledge in the Graphic Design field and will teach you helpful tips of the appropriate coloring, file, and sizing for print, digital print, and web.

Excellent teaching skills!

As a tutor, William rates at the top with 5 stars! He is very knowledgeable and makes the Adobe Creative Suite easy to understand and grasp. He is quick to respond to a tutor request and to set up appointments. William was very patient. This was important to me as a complete beginner with little knowledge in this area. He organized the class material in such a way that made everything come together. I will continue to utilize William as a tutor and would recommend him to everyone.

Great Tutor - would highly recommend him.

Bill is very helpful. He responds promptly to emails and is reliable. He took care to assess what I needed to learn to understand and get a handle on Dreamweaver. He explains things clearly. I would highly recommend him.
