    Linda, my instructor, was great! Very patient, flexible, and extremely competent in the material. Linda is very knowledgeable in the Adobe space and always went above and beyond to explain tougher concepts. She also was always readily available outside of class to answer questions as I was working towards finishing my portfolio or working on "homework" assignments.

    I found the Intro to Adobe Illustrator course helpful and worthwhile. Laura, the instructor, was professional and knowledgeable on the subject. She was able to answer any questions I had and made learning the content easy. I enjoyed the flow of the course. I knew a few self-taught basics before this course, but Laura helped me fill in the gaps and gave me a sturdy foundation in Illustrator. I have a lot more confidence with using the software now.
