"Tammy is truly an amazing, skilled and knowledgeable SketchUp instructor. Even though I came to her as a seasoned user, I learned so many new things from her amazing courses and one on one training. No matter what level you are, you will definitely learn the right way to use SU and benefit from her training."

"Tammy is one of those rare combinations of a highly skilled practitioner and an exceptional teacher. Her knowledge of and facility using SketchUp is impressive. She agilely and diligently works to explore and then impart upon us designers SketchUp’s functions and application. But it is her teaching skills which include precise, clear and kind communication that belies both an enormous patience and comprehension of this software. I was literally lost in the design software jungle until I found Tammy."
