Had a great 2 hours private tuition with Helen who was just so lovely and welcoming, yet professional and VERY knowledgeable.

Covered all I wanted to learn for now with Photoshop in a simple yet effective way.

Left feeling very happy, great value and will definitely be calling her again in the near future.

Thank you so much Helen.
