Friendly, Patient and Expert Mac and Adobe Software Tutor
I have been an artist since I was a young child, and my BA is in Art. I formerly owned some retail printing shops, so I have a strong understanding about providing excellent customer service. I apply those principles with my tutoring clients. I have been working for myself since 1994 as a graphic designer and a printing broker, and over the course of the years, through formal education, self learning and actual experience I have learned a lot about how to use and repair a Mac and how to use...
I have been an artist since I was a young child, and my BA is in Art. I formerly owned some retail printing shops, so I have a strong understanding about providing excellent customer service. I apply those principles with my tutoring clients. I have been working for myself since 1994 as a graphic designer and a printing broker, and over the course of the years, through formal education, self learning and actual experience I have learned a lot about how to use and repair a Mac and how to use major graphic design applications. I recently began tutoring because I love sharing my knowledge! I guess it’s in my blood, as both of my parents were teachers. My personal style is friendly and non-judgmental, and I generally impart information at a fairly quick pace, however I am always very sensitive to the learning needs of my clients and I can tailor my style to suit your needs.

Great tutor with encyclopedic knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop plus heaven only knows what else.
I found Carl G. through a request I placed on WyzAnt. Several names were giving to me, but Carl was the only one to respond and I began two hour weekly sessions with him. His knowledge of InDesign and Photoshop is phenomenal and I have learned so much in our first three sessions that I am completely satisfied. Carl also instructed me in many keyboard shortcuts for operating my Mac computer -- a real time saver. Carl's manner is gentle, non-judgmental and patient. He adapts his instruction to your needs and desires and I look forward very much to working with him. I recommend him very highly as a tutor.David, 4 lessons with Carl
I love Carl's passion!
Carl has so much knowledge and is sincerely intent on conveying as much as possible. He is a very good listener and picks up learning cues from his student which helps to guide the lessons. After two lessons, I am feeling comfortable using InDesign to develop marketing materials for my company.Cindy, 3 lessons with Carl
Very knowledgeable, patient and thorough
Carl G. exceeded my expectations! I've never worked with a tutor before and having to do this remotely I'll admit made me a little apprehensive. Carl walked me through every step slowly and patiently making sure I was keeping up with every step. He never made me feel dumb or inadequate to do the tasks. In fact he had more confidence in me than I did. I highly recommend Carl G. and will use again should the need arise.Cheri, 1 lesson with Carl
Excellent in every way.
Carl is extremely knowlegable and experienced and passes on the gems he's accumulated. He literally opened up a world I didn't know was there. It was just about having the right guide. Carl is the best guide and very easy to work with. I will definitely continue to learn from him.Kate, 5 lessons with Carl
Good results and very helpful
My son who is in college in a design/architecture major wanted to improve his photoshop skills. He has learned a lot from Carl in a short period of time. I'm sure my son could go into much more detail but has shared the following feedback in conversation. He has learned more effective approaches to designing a project, has been introduced to several new tools and how to use them, has acquired a better understanding of managing files for storage efficiency and resolution...to name a few. His photoshop designs are noticeably more professional and complex. Both my son and I would not hesitate to recommend Carl. In addition to his photoshop knowledge, Carl is a friendly person and has been very patient, communicative and accommodating.Betsy, 13 lessons with Carl
Knowledgeable and encouraging computer tutor
Carl taught me how to maximize my computer storage, between apps and streamline functions leading to photoshop and drop box mastery. He discovered a problem with my computer while we were working and found the solution! He has a nice sense of humor and perfect personality to feel ok about being vulnerable with learning a challenging set of skills. I will definitely book him for more lessons!Debra, 2 lessons with Carl
He knew the processes and quirks of the Mac Pro and he was able to understand my needs and clearly explain how to solve my problems. What we did was to process the differences between the Windows and Mac systems and find solutions to make the transitions easier.Stephen, 10 lessons with Carl
Carl G. knows Adobe Photoshop!
After really listening to what I am trying to accomplish, Carl was able to suggest and demonstrate specific tools and techniques within the Photoshop program that will help me achieve my goals. And while I was initially hesitant to try online tutoring, Carl made it seamless and easy.Brenda, 2 lessons with Carl
Very Knowledgeable and an excellent tutor!
I am an experienced Quark user switching to InDesign. I learned so much in a very short time, plus how to get my project designed efficiently and to press. I saved so much time in the long run with Carl's help.Cindy, 1 lesson with Carl
Excellent, patient tutor. Extremely knowledgable & experienced in the applications I need to learn!
Carl began with getting some of my more rusty Mac skills up-to-date and desktop organization/flow set up in a more efficient manner. Covered different types of backup: internal, external and off-site. And began in-depth explanation of Lightroom, helped with file organization and imports. This was just the tip of the iceberg... He is very patient and engaging. Excellent tutor! Very glad he reached out from across country to tutor remotely, it works better -much better! than in personAnnemarie, 4 lessons with Carl
