Margaret K. - Excellent Tutor!

Wyzant has been so easy to use and I am very pleased with my Wyzant tutor, Margaret K. Margaret is very, very well versed in both Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop. Her teaching style is professional, patient and detailed. I would not hesitate for a moment to work with her again. She was as excited for my wins as I was, she was completed dedicated to my success. I could not have asked for a better teacher.

Super patient and knowledgeable Tutor!!

I've experienced many tutors and teachers and Margaret is VERY GOOD. I have found that people can know how to do something really really well, but those same people don't necessarily know how to teach someone how to do that thing. Margaret is a natural teacher - she's very patient, thorough, clear, kind and the sort of person who won't bat an eye at a "stupid" question. She does a fantastic job of taking the lead AND listening for questions and feedback - that's a hard balance to strike. Also, there truly is an art to tutoring online, especially with something like graphic design where the tutor has to verbally guide the student to various panels and windows - she did that really well. I am new to InDesign and wanted someone to teach me the basics and fast track me. Initially I was completely stumped because the program wasn't working as it should - I thought it was my fault, but after some strategic troubleshooting Margaret determined the file was corrupt. It was great to know what was going on and be able to move on from there. She knows InDesign backwards and forwards so tricks and tips to save time are easy for her to suggest. And to top it all off, Margaret is just plain a extremely nice person.

Patient and Knowledgeable

Margee is very good at building on the basics. She gives you just enough information to begin working on your own. She is good at working via Skype. Skype opens up a ton of time for lessons. I highly recommend Margee.
