  • "Nicole was a great teacher. Before this class, I wasn't sure how to use InDesign. Now I have all of these great skills in a program that was completely foreign to me. She was always there to answer our questions, and went out of her way to help up build our skills."

  • "I had so much fun in this course! InDesign has become a new hobby thanks to Nicole's knowledge, experience, and challenging but viable currirulum. She's honed the communication and technology skills to create video tutorials that make us understand, practice, and assimilate the basic features of the program. "
