"Timothy was such an amazing tutor. I started off knowing absolutely nothing about SketchUp. After just a few sessions, I was on my way to creating a professional design that ultimately made a huge impression on my client. He was so patient and accessible. I really appreciated his custom lesson plans that specifically fit my project needs. Thank you Timothy!"

Tim’s willingness to teach and enthusiasm to help me create my dream. Or at least help me bring it to life. "Liked everything. Tim was easy to work with, went above and beyond."

He is very good at explaining steps and can explain one step multiple ways. Tim's communication skills are excellent!! So happy that he is able to teach me. I would recommend him to anyone. I have had one session with him and have already learned so much more than I ever expected to in just one hour. I learned some sketchup with youtube tutorials which can be helpful but it is just not the same when you can have one-on-one tutoring and can get very specific questions answered on how to do something immediately with out having to search for how ever long on the web to try and find a video with the answer. Before starting these sessions with Tim I was feeling unmotivated and confused and wasn't sure how I was going to really learn sketchup and now I am really excited and eager to learn. Thanks Tim!

Tim has a great way of using analogies that help you get a clear understanding of the tools used in Sketchup. By helping you build an understanding of each specific tool used, I was able to get a better understanding of the potential possibilities a program like Sketchup has.

My wife and I own and operate a shed building business. We wanted to upgrade the service we provide for our customers and adding sketchup fit the bill.We would be able to show our customers what their custom shed would look like as well as providing documentation to help them obtain homeowners... association permission.In addition, sketchup in combination with layout, would enable us to create construction documents for permitting, and for clarifying details for our builders.The only problem is not only did I not know sketchup, I was barely computer literate. Not only did Tim teach me enough sketchup to get started (you could spend years building sketchup skills), but he also taught me basics of how to create files and folders for saving my work. It probably sounds crazy to some of y’all but I really had(have) very minimal computer skills. Didn’t matter though, Tim patiently took me through it.Long story short, if Tim can teach sketchup to a fifty year old construction worker with no computer skills, he can teach you.Five out of five stars.Rob PowellCarolina Yardbarnsread more

Tim was my tutor teaching me how to navigate through Sketchup. He made it super simple and easy to learn. In my first lesson he taught me all the basics and from that I have been able to do SO much on my own already. I am excited to learn more from him, I already scheduled two more lessons. Thanks... Tim!read more

I've been interested for a while in finding someone to walk me through the Sketchup with instruction and pace tailored to my intended use for woodworking. I wasn't really shopping around, but I saw this tutoring service and inquired. From our initial conversation it was clear that Tim understood... exactly what I was looking for and, having now completed a couple sessions, that's exactly what he's provided. Very pleased.read more
