I care about my students and clients: that they have a great experience, feel confident and leave satisfied. I enjoy relating to them and learning what they require. I’m patient with students who are struggling.
I love teaching other people and I want the environment to be the most suitable. This is why I limit the class size to 6 and think that the relevance of the training can only be enhanced if the whole day is about you and your company. One person is enough, so classes are never cancelled for being too small.
Attending a public class may be a bit cheaper for 1 person but you could be in a class with 8–15 students. I aim for having time for each student, and when there are 2 or more you can even be saving money compared to public classes.
I love InDesign for everything from writing a letter to laying out a book. It's the best. And with all the interactive possibilities, it's just becoming amazing. I could spend all week just using Illustrator. And Photoshop, with the possibilities with colour, blends, masks and more. I love creating animation with Flash and could spend a whole life creating stories, games and interactive activities. And now that Dreamweaver has CSS, I love it too. And now there's Muse with its scrolling and interactive options and Edge Animate creating animation for any device. The only real problem is the amount of chocolate that gets consumed in the process.
