« I had Jill as a tutor for a digital design class and she helped me improve tremendously. As a science major I have never been super artsy and knew nothing about Photoshop but I learned so much from Jill. She was very patient during our tutoring sessions. I ended up getting an A in the class and now I use the skills I learned from Jill to make thumbnails for my youtube channel ! I would highly recommend Jill as a tutor. »

I had Jill as a tutor for a digital design class and she helped me improve tremendously. As a science major I have never been super artsy and knew nothing about Photoshop but I learned so much from Jill. She was very patient during our tutoring sessions. I ended up getting an A in the class and now I use the skills I learned from Jill to make thumbnails for my youtube channel ! I would highly recommend Jill as a tutor.
