About Amber
I have been a performing singer-songwriter/graphic artist for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs, released several CDs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am both easy going and goal oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons and enjoy every minute.

I provide the syllabus & handouts needed initially
but will may assign a book after the first few lessons. Students should have an empty three-ring binder handy or iPad in addition to owning their own guitar or piano/keyboard. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if needed.

Within 6 months*, the student should know and be able to play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow basic sheet music. Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning.

Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

* results will vary with each student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Each student needs a guitar or piano/keyboard and a 3 ring binder.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting: Folk, Rock, Blues & Country.

About Jonathan "JC"
Hello! Bonjour!

The way I teach is simple and fun! I am patient and dedicated to your success.

My name is Jonathan. I am a 33 year old French-American man living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minnesota in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 15 and 13 (11th, and 8th grade this year).

I have been a professional photographer for more than 14 years now. It is my full-time job. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan SunYoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases in 4 different countries (USA, France, Serbia, India).

In 2015, before I moved to the USA, I was the President of a Non Profit Organization called SUNYOGA France, French branch of the main
NPO from India called UNIVERSAL PEACE CENTER, for yoga, research, education, and humanitarian programs. I am now working on creating the American branch of the association. It will be called SUNYOGA AMERICA.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. I also believe each person is UNIQUE and should be treated in a unique way with unique lessons.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent, passion, and love for his work, the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

As a photographer my motto is
ENLIGHTEN YOUR EVENT, BRING LIFE TO YOUR STORY

About Scott
Although beginning my professional life in the Information Technology industry for nearly 10 years with a degree in Computer Science, for the past 8 years I have been working as a professional photographer shooting everything from Portraiture to large scale commercial projects.

Photographing people however, has always been my passion. My work has been featured in many national photography competitions, as well as being published in magazines including Lucky, InStyle and Westchester Magazine.

I also facilitate and teach photography workshops on a variety of topics for beginners all the way through advanced artists. My photo studio also provides mentoring services to up and coming photographers to help focus their artistic vision and keep their technical skills razor sharp.

I'm also available for computer tutoring as well to improv
e your technology skills and get you comfortable with the latest hardware and software applications.

About Chris
Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.

I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year.
I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years.
I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.

Learning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will
need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.

My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels.
The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.

As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.

I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

As a Software Developer I am very competent with basic computer programming. I have a very good knowledge of HTML, Javascript, CSS, JQuery, Angular and other front-end languages. I also teach about content management systems such as Wordpress and Magento.
Having worked at an IT help desk, I also have very good knowledge of computers in general such as Macbook and Windows based computers.

Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

About Austin
Lets have fun and learn! Ever wish you could create awesome work, but lack the technical skills to do so? After being self taught for 11 years then going to art school and working professionally in the creative industry for 7 years I've worked on a lot of cool projects and love sharing my experience in the field. I can honestly say I love what I do and teaching is just something I do for fun on the side because I enjoy helping other creatives develop the skills they need to produce awesome work. (For a tiny fraction of the time & money I spent acquiring skills.) I can teach you exactly what you need to know.

Choose to learn from me if you would like to learn about a bit more than just the topic selected. I have mentored a lot of successful artists and entrepreneurs and would be stoked to add you to the list.

The 5 star rating isn't an overstatement. Austin is seriously the best instructor/teacher/mentor you could ask for. He is extremely motivated to help people learn and understand. He has a ton of passion for video and graphic design work. He has expert knowledge of the subject and is extremely thorough when teaching. 100 percent recommend.

I was moving data from a former FrontPage website to a WordPress/Avada one. There was a steep learning curve. I tried to teach myself using books and videos, but it was taking a lot of time. Reggie worked with me for an hour on the final problems. He is an ideal coach with excellent skills and great patience (which was much appreciated). This is a big website with almost 100 pages, including sound, videos and maps. His support made a big difference to the final product. I recommend him wholeheartedly! He is a punctual and courteous young man. Thank you, Reggie!

About Cass
Hello, Prospective Students!

I am formally educated in Graphic and Web Design, and Internet Marketing, as well as other web services. I have my own business offering the same, and have had many success stories. I've worked with clients and students of all backgrounds and needs, and am confident we can create a great learning experience for you.

I genuinely love helping people, and have worked in teaching roles for a variety of subjects, from special education, k-12th grade assistant teaching, sports coaching, to training my clients how to manage their website and design needs.

I personally believe in encouraging my students and clients to be self-sufficient, and empowering them to be successful on their own. This means I will work WITH you, not for you, and really make sure that you feel confident with your skills when we part, s
o that you may be able to tackle any challenge you may face on your own.

I also know how hard it can be to manage a business, and how many expenses can add up quickly! I always try to help my clients find the best solutions for their needs, with the lowest cost possible to them. For example, identifying and configuring tools which may accomplish their needs, without having monthly fees if possible. I have been able to save my clients hundreds of dollars each month, allowing them to put that money back into their business (or pocket!).

Please don't hesitate to reach out, and I look forward to working together!

Some example areas I can help you with:

*Setting up web hosting and domains

*Setting up wordpress, installing themes & customizing

*setting up social media accounts for personal or business use

*setting up e-commerce/online store solutions

*building a website on Wix or Volusion

*integrating social media with your website

*on-page SEO (search engine optimization)

*establishing a blog

*photoshop -- making logos, editing photos, flyers, & more

*selling items on Amazon

*selling items on ebay

*setting up email accounts

*improving website performance

*Google analytics & web tools

*Google adwords, adsense, grants

About Steve
Hello,
My name is Steve and I've been teaching for over 30 years in high school and college. My main field was Algebra and Geometry but nothing has excited me more than teaching Excel and watching people understand what it can do for them and their business. Excel is very powerful but also can be very simple - it all depends on what you want to do with it. You don't have to learn it all and I will work hard to give you just what you need while pointing out possible topics you might be interested in. Also, I will help you after the lessons are over with creating formulas and/or troubleshooting. I have taught classes in many of the businesses in East Tennessee as well as two community colleges. I hope you will give me a chance to help you!

Steve's 2.5-hour Microsoft Excel 2016 introductory course was time well spent. He is not only a subject matter expert but also a highly skilled teacher. His teaching style is effective and efficient, and yet he pays careful attention to each student and provides thorough answers to all questions. Highly recommended.

Steve has been our go to Excel instructor at Cleveland State Community College for any Excel Training's we schedule at the college. He is not only a great instructor but an even more amazing person! He is very knowledgeable and know's Excel like the back of his hand. He can teach anything from beginner to advance. Steve keeps his training fun and engaging all while learning the in's and out's of Excel. We have received nothing but amazing review's on Steve from every level of Excel he has instructed. I've even had companies tell me they aren't interested in any excel training unless Steve is the one teaching it. If your looking for someone to show you the ropes of Excel, Steve is your Man!!! You will not be disappointed!!!
