I have been doing ongoing classes with Rita to learn photoshop and create the first piece on my portfolio. Rita showed me how to use most needed as well as advanced techniques and gave suggestions how to improve my first creation and now I have a lovely ad for portfolio and know how to create it in Photoshop. Most importantly, I love how encouraging Rita is! It really helps me overcome some of my fears around being a designer and move with it as a new career path ??

With Rita's expert experience we are building a website. I learn as we work through it together. This will make it easier for me to make future changes to my site myself at no additional cost.

Great session. Rita has been a fantastic and patient tutor. I needed to learn the foundational elements to begin working in AI. Her sessions are quickly giving me the confidence to try new things in Illustrator. Looking forward to more advanced skills as we continue our sessions.

Rita is very knowledge and patient! I came to her been self taught in photoshop and wanted to learn Illustrator. In only a few lessons she has taught me so many great tips that I am already using easily, she identified problems and mistakes I was making while always being positive. I look forward to our sessions and the time flies! I definitely recommend Rita!

My first tutoring lesson with Rita went well. She showed me how to navigate through Photoshop, and taught me tricks on how to clean up blemishes on pictures. I recommend her to anyone who is using Adobe and needs guidance.

Rita helped me solve several issues I had with WordPress. She was punctual and easy to work with. She taught me a few things about html code that I never would have figured out on my own.

My experience with Rita has been beyond expectation, every step of the way. She is a master's level college design instructor and I'm receiving the years of her knowledge, experience and guidance one-on-one, every week. Coursework has built on principles of design and into comprehensive practical design application. Furthermore, she really cares about me, as a student and has been extremely supportive in supporting my growth and success! I'm SO glad I found her!
- K C. from Aurora, IL
I?ve had 5 sessions with Rita and she has been such a great help to my project. Im working on updating a logo and building a website. Rita was able to pass on her knowledge on logo design with a power point handy and show me how to use Adobe Illustrator. If she didn?t have an answer right away to a question, she would spend extra time outside of our sessions to find it. Rita is also very engaging and makes work on the project feel more like fun! If you give her a try, you won?t regret it!
- Crystal L. from Houston, TX
She helped me with a project of trying to digitize a cartoon from a newspaper clipping. It was far more complicated than I thought it would be and she helped me get to the point where I knew how to proceed going forward. I would never had been able to do that on my own.
- Steve J. from Birmingham, AL
She made it easy to understand and at the end, my dreams seemed within reach. She was very engaging and took time to teach me the basics. It was clear she enjoys teaching.
- Lota O. from Willowbrook, IL
Rita did a great job explaining complex functions in a way I understood. She was patient and very knowledgeable. I felt confident afterward to go ahead with the project I was working on. Highly recommend!

Rita and I reviewed things in photoshop that were relevant to what I want to do. I am working on a freelance career in design. I've been looking for someone to fill in knowledge gaps for me. And Rita is helping me.

Rita did a great job listening, explaining the field and what strengths can help me stand out. She was thorough in lesson planning and she was instructive and encouraging. Awesome!!
- Kimberly C. from South Elgin, IL
Rita is absolutely incredible at teaching. She explains complicated concepts down in a way a 6 year old would understand and that are unforgettable. She is a one stop shop for all your photoshop needs!
- Mark W. from Philadelphia, PA
She got me to where I needed to go in a short amount of time without complicating things. I feel I'm up to speed but can go to her for help in the future if needed. I appreciated her taking the extra time to simplify my process and then teach me how to do it. Thank you RITA!!!!
- Holly B. from Verona, WI
Rita has the patience of the saint and she's extremely thorough in her lesson plan. She let me work on creating graphics for my employer and let me repeat the practice enough times until I got it. She knew that repetition would be key. She took me through the basics of photoshop that will help me in my current role as a Community Specialist and I can't thank her enough for her tutelage. If you need a photoshop instructor -- look no further, Rita is the one!
