If this sounds like what you need please [enkode]email Hugh[/enkode] with a description of the tuition you need, what software you are using and whether you are working on your own/work computer. I’ll let you know if I can help and we’ll arrange a meeting.

My fees are £20 per hour, with a concessionary rate of £16 per hour if you are a student, over 65, or if you are on a low income.

“Hugh is an excellent  teacher. He walks you slowly through the process of teaching (in my case sketch up ) and then throws you in the deep end to see if  you can swim….after a bit of splashing it worked”
Adrian Arbib

“Hugh tailor made our training session to suit my skill level and helped me to meet my work deadline. He helped with the creative side of design; offering ideas and artistic techniques at the same time as leaving me feeling confident to go on and work independently on a daily basis. When I have had the odd query after the training, Hugh has been happy to help. The training was good value and I would highly recommend it.”
