Client and Student Testimonials

David Casuto is the computer professional we'v e all been waiting for.  I've been to two of his six-week classes, I've engaged him to set up a highly-rated power-point presentation for me, and he's helped this two-computer family out with problems at home several times.  He explains the concept behind what he's doing, he knows intuitively whether you just want him to do what needs to be done OR whether you waht to learn, yourself, what to do.  

He comes when he says he's going to, he doesn't waste time but he doesn't rush, his fees are very reasonable.  And best of all, he's engaging, he's personable, and he's the oppositive of a nerd stereotype.  You can't go wrong!

I hired Dave to teach me a sophisticated piece of software called InDesign.  He was very efficient--he showed me only what I needed to know--not all the bells and whistles.  I found him to be extremely patient and he has a good teaching method--he shows you and then he lets you do it yourself and that's the only way to really incorporate it.  He doesn't jump in and do it for you and he doesn't do too much at one time.  

I took flying lessons once upon a time and I had to tell my instructor how to teach me--very frustrating. I feel that Dave really likes people and that he is more interested in teaching than in the showing off his technical prowess.  He doesn't seem to be doing this job to support some other venture, he seems to be doing it because he loves it.  He loves seeing people master this content.  

I highly recommend him and wish you well.

David is great!  He is extremely professional.  He helped me out immensely when I needed to "ramp up" my Powerpoint skills for a presentation.  I work in a small office and don't have to use PP/Excel that much in my job so whenever I am asked to do something like that, I am essentially starting all over again.  He's a great find and I will always feel better knowing that he is only a phone call away!

I can't recommend him highly enough!  You won't be disappointed.  

Dave S., San Francisco, CA

David's flexibility and turnaround time when I need assistance with Adobe Flash is tremendous. He solves the coding and design problems I have and advises me well on the look and feel of my projects. Moreover, when he doesn't have an answer, he will tell me beforehand. I think his rate is quite reasonable and most importantly, he is positive and engaging in his assistance.

Christine E., San Francisco, CA

David is excellent.  He is very easy to get along with and knows his stuff. He is on time and professional.   I find that rare these days.  I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn flash.  He can also troubleshoot with you around your computer  and e.mail issues.  Now that's handy...

Gloria B., Berkeley, CA

Since I've been involved with David my technologically challenged self has gained confidence in trying different things on the computer. I always know David is just a phone call away and always has a solution.I recently told him he should rename his business lifeline . I would highly recommend him to anyone who is having problems navigating cyperspace. His easy going personality makes you want to pay attention to what he is saying.

John B., San Francisco, CA

I got the job!!! I can honestly say that I owe David Casuto a huge heartfelt hug for his exceptional teaching skills. I was given an opportunity to interview for a life changing career (away from the volatile mortgage business), only hitch was I needed to know Excel and some aspects of Microsoft Word I was very unfamiliar with. In 4 short hours, David turned me into a knowledgeable pro. I was able to complete all tasks given and was offered the position at the end of the interview.

David, you rock! Finding you on Craigslist has made me a believer. There is a God. I would definitely recommend David Casuto. Excellent Teacher, with the patience of a saint and the skills of a master. Worth every penny.

Thanks again, David and best of luck.

Angela F., San Francisco, CA

This guy is your man if you need any type of computer help!!!

I came across his Yelp reviews and checked out his website and have hired him to help me out with various projects.  He's made my life a lot easier on projects dealing with web design, Photoshop, Flash, and general computer troubleshooting.

David is professional, savvy and gets the job done!  He also has a flexible schedule that can fit your needs.  All his reviews are excellent for a reason.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful class on digital storytelling.  I have been wanting to do this for a long time and your class went way beyond my expectations.  I now have the tools necessary to continue.  I was an educator for forty years and as you can imagine I have seen many, many teachers.  I can honestly say that he is a gifted teacher and here are the top ten reasons why:

    1. Great sense of humor
    2. Enthusiastic
    3. Encouraging
    4. Made everyone welcome by learning and greeting us by our first names
    5. Class is hands-on and interactive with peers

    8. Fantastic resources
    9. Highly skilled and knowledgeable
    10. (the digital storytelling) projects themselves
