My goal as a young student was to become a teacher. As fate would have it, I became an early-adopter for using computers in the graphic arts and printing industry, and ended up teaching in the industry rather than in the classroom. From 1997 to 2007 I worked for a software development company, traveling extensively teaching automation techniques and programming for the newspaper industry. From there I have worked on specific projects such as catalog and book production. As the information ag...
Shirley has truly been an answer to prayer. Having paid two previous tutors for help with Illustrator, I had given up hope of ever learning what I needed of the program. Shirley was my last attempt and I am beyond thrilled with how our first lesson went. She was patient and incredibly knowledgeable. I was skeptical of how well an online lesson would go but the screen sharing ended up forcing me to learn alongside Shirley as I had to work on things myself with her directions rather than two people trying to sit side by side sharing one screen. She was fabulous at emailing me after our lesson with some tips and other information to help me. I?ve already scheduled multiple follow up lessons and am excited for where this will take me.

Shirley is teaching me Javascript. She is very knowledgeable and very patient with me especially I'm an absolute beginner. She's trying to make me understand this coding language as easy as possible by showing me some visual references so I can understand better, for example variables vs arrays. I really appreciate her way of teaching. You're the best, Shirley!

Shirley literally taught me all the stuff I really needed to know and I was getting so worried about it then I found her and she really really helped me!! I am forever grateful. I will 100% be reaching out to her again to further my knowledge in photoshop! Thank you again!!
- Megan M. from Cape Coral, FL
I was so stressed out with Photoshop before i signed up. Shirley taught me how to edit my artwork on Photoshop in less than 5 minutes and i tried for a week and still didnt get it. I took notes so i could practice. I really enjoyed talking to her as well. Very positive experience.. She was so patient and if you love to learn from someone who doesnt speed through the instructions and speaks clearly than Shirley is that tutor your looking for.

- Charmaine B. from Stovall, NC
She is giving lessons to my son and he is learning how to use the tools in illustrator and she would set up projects for him to do that would help him understand the subject
- Sonia G. from Miami, FL
She taught me how to Navigate the Effects Controls, how to use different tools, how to edit more efficiently, how to mute on/off audio and control sound, import a still picture, how to navigate Graphics, change out Colors, sizes. I still need more practice with fades and the Opacity tool. She is just what I needed for this class. I had 2 other tutors previously and they did not work out
- Kimberly A. from Cincinnati, OH
I am not the sharpest "tool" in the shed. This is why I come to this site to learn and Shirley does just that for me. Her expertise and industry knowledge coupled with her patience and willingness to help Me understand is priceless. How can she help you?

- Aislinn R. from Swords Creek, VA
She is teaching me basically from ground zero on how to use Adobe Photoshop. She was very good and I look forward to learn more from her. Afterward our meeting she even sent me a paper on what we learned in our first lesson.

Good solid background with the patience to teach Specifically Shirley gave me an easy quality work around for building a photo grid for a Christmas Card. Also worked on a new saved work area layout.
- John H. from Bloomfield, NY
We discussed and utilized Adobe Animate. Discussed file creation, basic tools, variety of output choices and more. It was fun and informative! Thanks Shirley!

I am amazed when I get the opportunity to work with an industry veteran who has knowledge and passion. Shirley will be my go-to for any Adobe issues I have, JavaScript questions and so much more.
- Scott R. from Oakland, CA
Shirley is a patient and very experienced tutor. I am glad to have her for my teacher!! She is also willing to take the time to do research to help me find the solutions I need.
- Eddie Y. from Long Beach, CA
I learned basic techniques and a few complex ones. Shirley has a nice teaching style. I highly recommend her to other students. InDesign is more complicated than it should be, so its an app that screams for a tutor.
- Robert A. from Napa, CA
Shirley helped me work through my frustrations with Illustrator and got me to a point where I feel comfortable and know my way around the program. Having her help was a game changer for me!
- Amber H. from Payson, UT
Shirley is extremely knowledgeable and patient. She seems genuinely interested in what she does--which makes it much better for the student. She helps make learning complex concepts in InDesign possible. I highly recommend her expertise!
