All my courses are directed to receiving practical knowledge and are under construction on implementation of some real project: games, website, program, interior, etc.

I am not the employed teacher. I have no purpose to lecture the hours and to receive for it a salary. I work for myself and I do what is pleasant to me. And I very much like to share the knowledge. My purpose to teach you. Therefore even you can ask questions about the termination of a course, I constantly keep in contact with the pupils.

I constantly study. I learn to create the websites, to model, animate, develop games, to do the presentations, to write texts, to draw banners and to program.

Приветствую, меня зовут Евгений Соловей. Почти 17 лет я занимаюсь трехмерным моделированием, дизайном, программированием и web - разработками. Но также я и педагог - практик с 15-летним опытом преподавания по личной, отработанной и зарекомендовавшей себя методике обучения.

Я часто веду актуальные, современные и высокотехнологичные онлайн и оффлайн курсы, тренинги и вебинары для аудиторий различного возраста, подготовки и специализации. Все мои курсы направлены на получение практических знаний и строятся на выполнении какого-то реального проекта: игры, сайта, программы, интерьера и т.д.

Я не нанятый преподаватель. У меня нет цели отчитать свои часы и получить за это заработную плату. Я работаю на себя и делаю то, что мне нравится. А мне очень нравится делиться своими знаниями. Моя цель научить вас. Поэтому даже по окончанию курса вы можете задавать вопросы, я постоянно поддерживаю связь со своими учениками.

Я сам постоянно учусь. Учусь создавать сайты, моделировать, анимировать, разрабатывать игры, делать презентации, писать тексты, рисовать баннеры и программировать. И вам рекомендую не останавливаться на достигнутом, ведь вокруг еще так много того, что можно узнать. Добавляйтесь в друзья в соц. сетях, пишите, спрашивайте, обязательно отвечу на все ваши вопросы!
