Nelson was very relaxed in his approach and able to suggest alternatives to issues I had encountered regarding iMovie and YouTube. Absolutely recommend and should I have additional questions I will seek his advice again!
- Alex B. from Sterling, VA
Provided answers to specific questions I had. Only regret he will not be available for some additional work I had on building a new website. He suggested he might recommend someone for that job. He Nelson becomes available for certain additional work I would like to know. That's all I care to write now.

I had an introduction consultation session with Nelson. It's very helpful. I am very confident that Nelson will help me to achieve more in the future. Thanks Nelson!

Nelson T helped me understand some different angles when beginning my video production and I look forward to the editing process with him. Thanks again

Nelson was awesome! Explained everything well and has great technical expertise. One session and I?m making the videos I want with ease. Nelson was a great communicator as well. Ultimately I would do a lesson with Nelson again in a heartbeat.

I have had two sessions with Nelson learning the finer points of Zoom. He is very professional and easy to work with. I plant to have at least one more lesson to review touch on a couple of new points. Bravo ,Nelson!

Nelson was VERY GOOD at making sure I had everything I needed for the next step in my process of working with my tech equipment. He advised me on all the benefits of having my own scanner. The best advice was to not wait, but to start with what I have and move forward getting my illustrations scanned. I needed this lesson to help me get unstuck. I will now be able to transfer my digital illustrations to and from my Ipad to my computer and visa versa. Thanks Nelson for helping me get over the technology hump!

Nelson is coaching me through Premiere Pro and providing me with step by step information that ultimately should allow me to develop my own expertise. I highly recommend him.

Nelson is doing a great job at building my son's skills and confidence in video editing and production. My son is passionate about creating high quality and impact videos. He's learning how to transform his writing into visual essays, analysis, and commentary. Nelson is very patient, helpful, and inspiring.
- Angel G. from San Anselmo, CA
Nelson is extremely patient, helpful, and talented in teaching editing and all aspects of filmmaking. In only two lessons, I was able to master the basics of premiere pro, as well as learn many helpful tricks along the way. I highly recommend Nelson!
- halley B. from Oyster Bay, NY
Nelson was great at meeting me where I was. I have a lot of knowledge and experience as a film producer, but not as an editor. He has an organized process for guiding a student, but can also sidestep to answer questions on subjects that might not have come up until later, but that I wanted to understand as part of the process. Really enjoyed session one and will be continuing with more.
- Sarah S. from Newton Center, MA
Nelson is THE BEST... can?t wait to do another session with him. He?s extremely well-skilled in Premiere and I learned a ton of the basics during our first one hour session. Patrick

I am completely new to editing and it?s not something I ever thought I would need to learn. But as a composer and lyricist and teacher of musical theatre to kids, this pandemic made it clear that in order to survive and still make theatre fun for Kids, I needed to learn how to edit and take footage they give me and create something cool. I knew I couldn?t do it on my own, and I found Nelson. From day one he has been kind, and patient and prompt and helpful but more importantly, just as excited about the project as I was and I trust him to help me make it great. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn this new skill. I look forward to our time together and am so grateful at how he helped me organize and get my head around my project in a way I could understand, and in a way that would make it fun for me instead of tedious. He has given me inspiration to really challenge myself to grow. Five stars all around.

Nelson T. initially helped with transcoding footage in AVID. He was excellent at explaining the steps in addition showed me how to quickly navigate in AVID. The tricks he uses are very useful and save me a lot of time! Overall I would highly recommend Nelson as an AVID tutor. He was extremely friendly and efficient! I felt like I learned a lot.
- Arielle D. from San Diego, CA

- Mark B. from East Brunswick, NJ
Nelson is extremely nice and very personable, and he is definitely very knowledgeable about After Effects. He makes you feel comfortable and makes you feel as if there is not a bad question you could ask him. It will be great working with him!
- Jerry J. from Sparks, NV
Nelson helped me learn things I just could not pick up from YT video tutorials. His ability to convey and teach quickly is unparalleled. Would I hire him again? Well, I'll put my money where my mouth is; I just hired him for a third session
- John C. from Phoenix, AZ
just what a new film student needs when starting out: someone who listens, cares and guides super clearly, well and intelligently. Grateful for, most of all, his patience! Thank you!!
- C P. from New York, NY
Nelson helped with details of Premiere, how to use effects, how to animate scenes, and various shortcuts.
