James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

About Akib
I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.

I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and complete my bachelors by December 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experienced in working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also
familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.

An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working terms and contribute to your goals and objectives.
I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and believe will be worthwhile for us to meet. I have enclosed my resume and would gladly answer any further. Please feel free to contact TakeLessons using the details mentioned.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

About Lisa
After graduating from college with a degree in education I was determined to change the course of the education for my own family. I was the first on either side of my entire family (all generations) ever to go to a university and graduate. I came from very humble hard working (yes bullheaded Irish) people. As a naturally highly creative person the school system was not a nurturing place at all for me. As a deeply right brained visual person the left brained system was toxic for my creativity and I struggled to thrive and be myself.

For the past 21 years I've dedicated my time, energy, creativity to home schooling my own two children and supporting them in their academic quests as well as teaching them life skills. Thankfully, I had the opportunity not to put either of them in day care one day. My focused sacrifice has been int
ense, serious, determined and planned.

The ignorant verbal flack I encountered, during these years was insane, but I didn't waver. I believe in one on one education customized for each child and knew from the start what I wanted to accomplish with both of them! I wanted them to learn how to learn with their personalities, natural strengths and talents but I had to observe and implement very different parenting and teaching techniques with both from birth.

Yes, my hard unwavering work has paid off and is continuing to pay off. Both of my children walked into their first college courses at age 14...yes, real college classes on real college campuses! Both are honor students and my first will finish his degree in English Lit/Creative Writing at UNC Asheville in Dec 2016 at age 21!

All that to say...private piano lessons are nothing more than home schooling. I bring the same customized passion I used for my own children to teach yours! Not only do I have an education degree I have a proven track record of teaching children how they uniquely need to learn whether it's visually, audio, or kinetically etc. I know how to challenge them and make them work...even the super smart lazy ones!

After each lesson I take a few moments to consult the parent(s) about the lesson and what needs to be accomplished during the students next practice week. You need to be aware of their education because they grow rapidly and there is much to accomplish before they attend college! Do some research on the benefits of learning and playing music if you are not a musician yourself. It's incredible what it will do for the development of their brain little brains!

Apparently, I'm not allowed my customary studio "meet and greet" with Takelessons. I have studio rules that must be followed and if they aren't I will not continue to teach your children. You must have a piano or keyboard for them to regularly practice on and believe me I know when they don't practice. I know what method books I like to teach from so I'll be happy to share that information with you. If you don't have any I cannot start the lessons without them. They must be purchased before hand.
There are other rules so please message me first so that we can discuss them first so that there is no confusion about the studio policies. This isn't a hobby this is serious valuable education for your child.

I don't have the time nor the energy to deal with unprofessional parents because my time and energy goes fully towards teaching amazing students.

I look forward to passionately educating you or... those you love!

Lisa

Lisa is an amazing piano instructor. She has taught my 6 year old daughter since she was 4 years old and my daughter has learned so much. Lisa is very professional, nurturing, and loving. My daughter loves her and can't wait to come to her lessons each week. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone who is looking for a piano instructor.

About Gordon
Hello! My name is Gordon L. and I would love to help you or your child discover your passions and work towards reaching any academic or artistic goals!

Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, I am fortunate to have had an exceptional academic foundation. I attended Punahou School K-12 earning high marks and went on to graduate college from the University of California, Berkeley. I have a variety of expertise and tutoring experience in these subjects:

- Computer Programming
- Math
- Chinese
- Humanities
- SAT

Outside of school, I have also always been an artist and hobbyist, heavily investing myself in various forms of creative expression including:

- Dance (hip-hop/urban)
- Photography (DSLR, Lightroom/Photoshop)
- Card magic/Card flourishes (look it up :P)

Over the years, I have found that my enthusiasm for both people
and learning different things greatly enriches my life and those around me. If you're looking for someone who can introduce you to a variety of subjects, I'm your guy. I love learning about anything and everything and hope to encourage others to explore their passions. Furthermore, though my interests are many and varied, I have also committed years into training, have a solid grasp on their principles, and can confidently say that I am a qualified expert. I look forward to meeting you and helping you learn with me!

3 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 (See Below)

I’m an award winning photographer with great teaching skills who can teach you how to “Escape the Green Box” (get off of the Auto setting) and really use your camera and/or Adobe Lightroom to make and manage beautiful images. These are the highest quality and in depth, lessons taught one-on-one and should not be confused with quickie 2 hour overviews. I don't just tell you to "push that button" or "turn that dial", I teach you how the various camera settings impact your images. I give you the knowledge to fully understand, control and utilize your camera to make beautiful images matching your artistic vision.

I have a very easy going and relaxed teaching style, more like two friends chatting and having fun. But it's all about you and your needs. The first thing that sets me apart is that I listen t
o you. We then tailor your experience around what you already know, what you want to learn, what your photographic goals are and I cater to your learning style. This has been a winning formula with me for over 400 students spanning 6.5 years of private tutoring in photography, camera use and image editing.

These are private lessons - not a room full of people. My schedule is flexible but I do try to limit it to the hours of 10:00 am to 5:30 pm on all days of the week, however weekend time slots tend to fill up quicker. I've found that lessons of 2 hours each seem to work the best as it allows us to get into some depth each time but not so much at a time that it's overwhelming. If requested, I will do shorter or longer sessions. I have a 2 hr. minimum for the first session so book two back-to-back sessions for the first session. Lessons longer or shorter than 2 hours on weekends can only be confirmed a day or two ahead of time.

If you sign up for lessons, you can bring 1 or 2 guests (family, friends, co-workers, etc.) who can fully participate in the lesson at no charge, In other words, up to 3 for the price of 1. Just let me know in advance.

I took basic camera/photography lessons from Dan. He is extremely knowledgeable and detailed in his lessons. Few things I liked about his teaching approach -
* He had prepared a list of topics to introduce/teach based on my specific needs
* He asks good questions, so we actually think about logic and answers
* He is very detailed and approachable, willing to answer any questions

Found his class very useful and would definitely recommend him photography lessons!

Although I consider myself an organized person, after 3 months using Lightroom I had complete chaos on my computer. It seemed I had 4 catalogs, Images I knew I had were no where to be found and I seemed to have other images in 3 or more places. It as a mess and I know there must be a better way.

I found Dan on the internet (Yelp and Craigslist), scheduled a 2 hour session with and brought over my laptop. Dan was wonderful. He listened intently to my problems. He asked me about my workflow and things that I never thought of like how many cameras will be taking photos which will all be put in Lightroom. He then mapped out where my images were on my laptop as well as my catalogs (turned out I didn't have 4 I actually had 6 - there were 2 I didn't know about.

He then proposed an image storage file structure and naming pattern, showed me how to merge information to get down to one catalog, get rid of duplicates and add missing images. He walked me through each process several times till I felt comfortable doing the rest on my own at home.

It was so great that i came back 2 more times to get info on keywording, collections and on the 3rd session we went through the magic of the Develop module where we took some ho hum images I took at Yosemite and he showed me with a few slider moves who to make them worthy of hanging in the living room.

Later, when I got stuck he helped me out through email at no charge.

Dan's style is laid back but articulate. He talks in lay terms and works at your pace. I really can't tell you how happy I was with his style and the depth of knowledge he has in the product.
