I just wanted to thank you formally
I just wanted to thank you formally for the exceptional training on Photoshop and Illustrator. As you know, I attended your class with little or no knowledge of the subjects. But, your teaching with clarity and your sincerity in sharing your years of experience and knowledge in graphic design helped me leave with knowledge, understanding and interest for the subjects.
I want to express my gratitude to you for patiently guiding me and offering great tips even after the courses. I owe it to you for my success in accomplishing a number of design projects for my company. My colleagues were impressed and many of them were interested in my know-how. In fact, my Corp Comms manager asked me where I had obtained my training.
This is certainly good evidence of your effective training. I will remember you as my trainer. You have motivated and built confidence in me. Many thanks for all your teaching and help.”

Sherman is up to date with the IT industry
Sherman is very knowledgeable in the concepts and application of the Adobe InDesign CS3 software. He is able to effectively deliver his knowledge to the trainees. I have benefitted from Sherman’s training.
Sherman is also very up to date with the happenings in the IT industry which he also willingly shared with the trainees.”
I am impressed with his after sales service
I am truely grateful to the Sapura’s lecturer, Sherman Cheong who was my coach in both Adobe photoshop and illustrator classes that I attended in 2008.
I have learnt a lot from Sherman who is very competent with his technique and hands-on knowledge in these graphic tools.
He has a keen eye of design and had given many valuable resources & additional information during the class which benefit many students like me with non-designer background.
I treasure every resource he shared and found them very useful (esp. Podcast learning of Photoshop, Mac, Before and After Magazine, Color elements etc)
He is also very patience with student and always make an effort to calibrate his teaching pace to suit individual needs.
I am tremendously proud to be his student. It is rare to meet a teacher who has the passion and skills that can match with his charisma.
Sherman’s love of learning & positive attitude has inspired me and many to be good artists.
Also I am impressed with his after sales service he has given me very good inputs about my marketing collateral design & newsletter layout.
I am sure he is a great asset to the company. Thank you for everything! You are a great teacher.”

I’d attended Sherman’s course on Adobe InDesign from 12 June to 13 June 2008. He gave us (participants) a preview of his portfolio before commencing the course. This was an eye-opener for us to the capabilities of what the software can really do.
I find that Sherman is very professional in his teaching. He is able to explain the concepts of the software tools clearly, as well as apply their different functions concisely in real-life examples. He encourages us to be flexible when using the software to get the desired results. When we run into difficulties, he is always there to provide technical support. He is also able to clarify our doubts effectively.
His experience as a designer is invaluable in the course as he is able to show us the standards of the design industry. While he was showing us his works, he was able to explain every technical detail he applied in his projects which is really remarkable. He also keeps in contact with the participants via email corresponds and answer any queries we may have.
The most memorable segment of his course is the final “test” where he showed us a sample piece of design and we were supposed to follow it as close as possible to replicate it. This is especially useful because it forced us to think creatively and be flexible in using the different software tools.
I have immensely benefited from his course because immediately a week after the course, I was tasked to design and layout a book project. And I managed to finish it in one week! I doubt that I could have achieved that within the timeframe if I had not attended his course.”
I attended a 2 days Photoshop CS3 course on 26 & 27 June 08 and found the course trainer, Mr Sherman Cheong, to be very knowledgeable and passionate on the subject matter.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and walked away with skills that are very helpful to my work. I would have no reservation in recommending him to organizations which are interested in conducting Photoshop as part of their training.”

You’re an ‘A’!
I am always impressed with your “after sales services”. I have been receiving emails from you. To be honest, I have not used the program at all after the course, and that is sad. We only have one photoshop program in this office.
If I will to give you a rating, I think you are A especially providing email tips after the course. I wish my other trainers for other software are like you. You are very professional and as you have been working in the advertising firm before, you know just what to teach and tips.”

Full of humour and interaction
I’m very happy with the Photoshop course that I attended. The course is very much related to my scope of work especially in designing pictures and photos for my company’s website. It gives me a clear perspective on how to enhance pictures in terms of colours, contrast etc and touch up on portrait photographs. The masking effects were certainly helpful in helping me to design posters and brochures for the company’s internal seminars.
Overall, it has been an enriching and fulfilling experience for me as I was able to apply the classroom concepts to my jobscope.
The course was also extremely full of humour and a lot of interactive and practical class participation has enabled me to grasp the concepts easily and make new friends along the way. It is probably one of the most creative, fun and enjoyable courses that I have attended so far.”

Fun and interesting
Having always had an interest in learning about the software Adobe Photoshop, I’ve always wanted to have a better understanding on the functions and tools of this popular program. Self learning just wasn’t enough to understand the complexities and capabilities of the tools. When I had to chance to undertake this course on Basic Adobe Photoshop, I jumped at the chance.
Sherman made learning Adobe Photoshop fun and interesting. When anyone lagged behind, he took the time to explain and go through the steps personally. Even after the course, Sherman took the time to follow up with us, giving us tips on the program, which was great.
It was a great learning experience and I’d recommend taking up this course taught by Sherman which made a difference in my understanding use of the program in my life.”

Adobe Photoshop for Digital Photographer
I am indeed very glad that I was given a choice to attend this course. Mr Sherman Cheong shared many related topics to give us a full understanding of what was taught which increased my knowledge level for Adobe Photoshop.
I just wanted to thank him again for making the course most enjoyable. His explanation to our enquires made it much more understandable and helped us to appreciate the course. He is a man for follow-ups and keeps sending any new updates he comes across to keep us with most updated information.
I felt very inspired to keep learning about Adobe Photoshop and have been trying to edit all my old pictures immediately after getting back from the course. I than began to realize that whatever I have learnt is amazing for photography. I plan to practice more of all the techniques he has taught me.
I really had a great time with the course, it was a great pleasure to learn from someone with the technical expertise, an eye for the unusual in daily life & above all a generous lecturer. I look forward to attending your other courses at NUS.”
