Recommendations of my work by people who know it well
Drupal was a complete mystery to me before I watched your Lynda courses. Everything I know about Drupal was gained through watching your courses, which enabled me to build several Drupal websites.
Your Drupal courses on lynda.com really broke a logjam in my understanding of Drupal. I’d read several books but really wasn’t getting it. Your pace and explanations were perfect for me.
I watched your Drupal 7 Essential Training and fell in love with Drupal. Now I want to take Drupal seriously and find it as my feature career. I just want to thank you for your awesome tutorial at lynda.com.
As a long time WordPress user, your tutorials are amazing and incredibly helpful to a novice.
Your lynda.com courses are like my mom, who knows what I need.
Watching your course on Lynda, “Writing Articles” — amazing. Thank you!
Tom is a strong creative and technical writer, and quickly captured the voice we needed for the launch materials. He was open to input and changes, highly responsive, and readily available throughout the entire project, even on nights and weekends and when separated by continents.
Learning Drupal has been a big learning curve, and I’ve been able to fast track it through your Lynda tutorials. Your advice was terrific – all worked and saved me a shed load of time and ulcers.
Tom’s become a key ‘go-to’ guy for us when we need the highest-quality work delivered on time, and he’s always a pleasure to work with. I give him my highest recommendation.
Tom is easy to work with, writes clearly, and accepts editing well.
I love your videos! You’ve got ‘good voice’ which makes listening to them more enjoyable, and you do a fantastic job taking folks through the process of setting up a Drupal site. I’m confident I’ll be a major Drupal fan after the training.
I’ve been working through your Drupal videos on Lynda, and just wanted to take a second to say they’re great! Most learning/tutorial videos I watch get annoying pretty quickly, but yours have made learning Drupal a lot easier and exciting. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
Thank you for the effort you put into [your video course] Freelancing Fundamentals. I appreciated your honest presentation, as well as your instructive and kind manner of speaking. The videos were well organized and gave great examples and resources for further learning.
Your course [about bitcoin] is phenomenal at explaining everything in plain English.
I am totally addicted to learning more about Drupal thanks to your videos!
Your Drupal courses have changed how I work and build sites. Thanks for making the content easy to understand and fun. Keep up the good work.
Your tutorials on lynda.com were really helpful, they make it really easy for non-programmers.
I’m relieved the site was launched within my 1-month self-imposed deadline. Meeting that deadline is a testament to your [Drupal] teaching skills.
I have watched your videos on lynda.com as my bible — you are an excellent trainer.
I hereby knight you the Mister Rogers of Drupal! You calmly accept all newbies and give awesomely clear instructions. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned from your videos!
Tom combines the ability to describe technical matters clearly with a gift for finding just the right phrase to highlight a product’s advantage or intriguing quality. I’m looking forward to seeing more from Tom in the coming months!
I wanted to congratulate you on your lynda.com training videos. I can’t remember that I’ve ever had such a great “kick-start” into an unfamiliar technology.
I just bought your Drupal Essential Training from lynda.com and would like to thank you for the great videos. You’re a super teacher!
Your courses really make learning Drupal a joy!
I just wanted to say thank you for your lynda.com tutorials. I’ve been a content/project manager for the past four-plus years and I’ve always worked with Drupal — but only recently I have had the opportunity to be on the admin level. It’s been such a pleasure getting to know these new privileges through your approachable tutorials.
I want to thank you for your job for lynda.com. Your trainings are just perfect and you definitely have a strong talent to train. Keep going on!
I saw the video you set up [of my work], and it is really great! All the people who saw it found it particularly pedagogical in explaining
the reasons why we need such [programming] languages.
Just a shout out to say I enjoyed your tutorials on Drupal 7 on Lynda.com. You were very informative and you helped me get a grasp on a very steep learning curve for Drupal.
I was just a plain-old PHP, JS, HTML designer-developer, until I was introduced to Drupal 7 from your videos. They got me up and running quickly, and so I thank you for that!
I learned Drupal with your course on lynda.com, got so excited that I told my boss that in six months I would quit my job and become self-employed building web sites with Drupal. And here I am!
I love your videos. Your voice is very pleasant and you explain everything precisely. I am mostly a self-learner because I often find that courses too slow for me, but yours are just perfect!
Tom Geller is a wonderfully natural and informative presenter.
I LOVE your teaching style!!!
Tom’s work ethic and passion are evident in each of his productions. He has the unique mixture of extreme efficiency and an innate knack to hone in on the most dynamic aspects and nurture them.
You are by far the best Drupal trainer I have had the pleasure of learning from.
The video is really great! We loved the framing and were clapping in the lab earlier today when we first caught wind of it.
Thank you for an excellent, easy-to-follow course. You give out the feeling of ease in a somewhat difficult subject.
The article looks great. I think it’s the best I’ve read on the subject so far.
Finding knowledgeable, evenhanded writers is hard enough. But finding one whose writing is as clean, precise, on-time, and well-crafted as Tom’s is almost unheard of. A keeper!
Tom provided strategic advice along with professionally crafted text, giving me more than I expected — but exactly what I needed.
Drupal 7 Essential Training is a game changer for me: I could not have asked for more or better. Anyone learning Drupal should buy this DVD. Just get it.
Your training tutorials were a great primer for learning Drupal.
Tom, your style is perfect. You explain things concisely and perfectly, and I never get bored watching anything you create.
I just wanted to say thank you for your easy-on-the-ears videos on lynda.com about Drupal. I watched them over year ago and am now making a lot of Drupal sites, and am also passing on my knowledge to my classroom and employees. Today I was wondering, how did I get here? And I remembered, it was you and your damn videos. 🙂
I just finished your Drupal 7 Essential Training on lynda.com. It was very informative. I also bought your Drupal 7: Visual QuickStart Guide book from Amazon. I’m about half-way through it. I know there is overlap in the information, but I find that watching the videos and reading the book helps it stick. I have a MODX and WP background, so your training really helped me with absorbing Drupal. Thank you.
It was a pleasure to work with Tom, as he has a collaborative spirit and gets along easily with others. The product launch was a great success due in no small part to Tom’s work. I highly recommend him!
A quick note of thanks for your videos, especially for the point about putting aside time for doing stuff not related to work. Great reminder. Thanks again.
Thank you for your outstanding contribution to the world of writers through LinkedIn Learning. I must say, it inspired me to keep writing.
A HUGE thank you for your training products. I’ve followed a couple of your lynda.com courses and have found your talent in explaining new concepts with such clarity a huge help — I’ve managed to save many weeks (perhaps months) of my life!
I can’t say enough how impressed I am with your and the other lynda.com tutorials that I have watched. I am a former math teacher, so I’m a pretty tough critic when it comes to teaching techniques. I have recommended the course to others in our company who are using it too.
I’ve looked at other Drupal training, but have remained loyal to yours. Simply put, it’s THE BEST! Your style is both respectful and comprehensive: It gets me through the tougher parts without diluting the content. It’s a great value.
We engaged Tom to write the marketing materials for a large and important product launch. It was one of the best decisions we made in the entire process.
I love your videos. They are so clear and easy to follow, making the most difficult of concepts understandable. Please keep up the great work!
I learned Drupal entirely from your videos. Last week I got my first contract role as a Drupal developer and it’s great. I’m working for a bunch of highly intelligent guys, yet even they have been blown away with what I’ve been able to do in such a short time with Drupal and what you taught me. Seriously, mate, thank you. I think the fact that your videos are so easy to watch and enjoy made a huge difference.
Thank you! I only wanted to tell you that I throughly enjoyed your course. You are an amazing public speaker. You just earned a follower. I went through your course with a pen and paper to take notes of the great ideas. I had 3 full pages! By the time I am done adding my views I will likely have about 9-12 pages.
I watched the entire Commerce video on Lynda.com and thought it was stupendous. What an incredible contribution to the Drupal Commerce community. You nailed it. I wish everybody would watch that. Should be a prerequisite. I’ve been promoting it every way I know how.
Just wanted to say that so far I am finding your Lynda courses delightful!
I found your Writing Articles course on Lynda.com and it provided me with all the things I needed to get started now. I simply wanted to express gratitude and let you know how much I got out of the course. Thank you.
I’ve enjoyed your lectures/lessons on Lynda.com. You have a great delivery style as well as very interesting background! Thanks for the help, coach!
Drupal 7 Essential Training had me creating sites within hours.
I loved your Freelancing Fundamentals course. It gave me exactly the information I was seeking to move forward if this is the path I decide to take.
Your article is easily the best piece I’ve read on Bitcoin, and its safe to say I’ve read a thousand or more. Here’s to hoping there’s more great stuff coming.
I just wanted to thank you for a great, informative presentation. It’s people like you who give open source a good name.
I’ve had a look at the article and it’s terrific! You got into exactly the kinds of things I wanted to know about… Excellent investigative reporting!
Your videos are the main source of my Drupal education and they are well presented, informative, and example-filled to allow me to get content out and new sites built very quickly. Thank you for all of your work and I look forward to more videos as Drupal continues to develop.
I sense your sincerity and desire to actually give of your knowledge. Your desire to help others is a very worthy character trait (a gift actually!). It’s appreciated by many.
Geller has a knack for covering a large volume of information in a condensed space without making the reader feel rushed. He manages to take what could be a technical ‘bible’ of information and distills it into a practical guide.
One of the big mysteries of Drupal is how to adapt themes to your needs. Your section on theming was great: Short and to the point, it got me started.
We’ve had positive feedback about your article, and they only made a couple of very minor changes. Good job!
Your articles were well crafted and researched, and written in a way that targets our audience well. I’d be happy to contract you for future assignments.
