Frances is a patient teacher. She encourages R to work hard on her basic skills without sapping her of her love of art. She gives her assignments to work on at home. At first our daughter avoided these assignments, perhaps because she was afraid she wouldn't be able to do as good a job on them as she thought Frances expected. Once R realized Frances wasn't judging her and just wanted her to practice in order to improve her skills, she began to work on these assignments diligently.
At our first meeting I was thinking I knew some things, but quickly realized that before I could start with Excel I needed to back up and work on Microsoft Office skills first. Joshua was very encouraging when I realized my lack of skills. After a few weeks I have finally gotten into the Excel. Joshua has given me a lot of good study skills. He reenforces to me to "make the computer work for me so I can work less". I am finally getting it. It's been exciting to learn.
Of course, I want to play the piano, violin, and understand Solidworks as well. (I do not have skills in any of those skills). But, unless you are A VERY quick study, the muscle memory needed to master the shortcuts to be proficient in these programs may be a time investment better spent by subletting my work instead of doing it all myself. However, I still wish to have better Photoshop skills. Our lesson went very well, and I now have a good grasp of Photoshop LAYERS.
