Had my first lesson. Great teacher, very informative on the subject, and very easy to talk with. Left the lesson feeling I learned more than before the lesson. Now I'm even more excited to work with my camera he helped me understand more. Definitely would recommend him as a teacher. If I decide to take another lesson, I will request him as my teacher. Thanks for the lesson.

These Psychology lessons are mostly focused on how to communicate, build confidence, and reduce anxiety.
Many of the principles taught will focus on how to engage in healthy conversations and read social cues.
Psychology will back up principles taught.
Elementary and middle school psychology focuses on developmental stages of school- aged children, and what their patterns of behavior could indicate. Please send specific goals to the instructor before signing up for this course to make sure this is the right fit for you.
*Disclaimer*
Lessons and insight are based on studies conducted and reported, but please realize that there are many variables that contribute to a person’s psyche, and if conclusions of student’s goals are not reached, psychologist, counseling, or even psychiatric services are recommended.

I was a little hesitant in my first class as I am trying to learn it at older age but Panagiota was very friendly and made sure that the environment is comfortable for both of us. I had the first lesson and I would say it was good but too early to conclude the overall experience. I would prefer to provide meaningful feedback at the end of my sessions so that it will be informative and helpful for others. Thanks

I have been teaching guitar since 2009. I teach in a therapeutic style, using my music therapy training to be as observant, adaptive and flexible as I need to be for the student's benefit. I teach at the student's pace and to their interests, while building their musicality, music theory, and performance skills. I often incorporate singing into lessons as well. 1-2 times a year, we work towards building a repertoire of 1-4 pieces (depending on the student) to play at a local assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility.

"I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!"

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos.
