Fawn is my daughters voice and piano coach and I could not be any happier with the instant results. We have tried many other voice coaches and there was only steady improvement. After One session with Fawn my daughter booked a voice over national job. She was able to apply all the tools Fawn showed her and it paid off.
As for the piano classes, after 6 months of piano at a traditional school she still had not learned the notes or much of anything, after 2 classes with Fawn she is now reading notes and playing songs off the book and she couldn't be happier.
I highly recommend Fawn

Fawn is very professional, experienced, and a lot of fun to work with. She's taught all skill levels, so she knows how to control the pace. I suck at all this so she's had to apply music theory on me to go along with the hands on teaching. I would definitely recommend choosing Fawn as a teacher!

Dr. Nupur is the best teacher ever, we feel lucky to have found her at takelessons.

Her background is impeccable and in addition, she is a teacher who cares. She cared about my daughter, her progress (high school, chemistry) and well-being. My daughter's progress in less than 1 month was amazing: she went from 'we're a bit concerned for your grade' to the point she was helping others in class.

Dr. Nupur is the kind of teacher you wish your kids to have. I recommend her highly.

I took lessons with Rahny last year. She helped me to refine my essay writing skills. I had never written an essay before. I’d never had a portfolio before either, but it has come in handy in more ways than I ever could’ve imagined. I’ve referenced the materials on vocabulary, pronunciation and essay writing exercises a dozen times.She still takes the time to answer some of my questions.

Thanks for all your patience even though I was running late. I was all ready to cancel my lesson, but you encouraged me to keep my goals in mind and keep moving forward. I loved that you adjusted the material accordingly and worked through the homework together with me. I look forward to our next session. :)

Rahny is very interesting in her approach. It is great how she goes about sharing ideas, extending the discussion and engaging with me and the content. She brings so much liveliness to the class. The texts are very good, practical and related directly to my goals of wanting better communication with my colleagues.

"Where to start. Alex is a just a great all around person. He makes learning fun. As long as you put in the time and effort he will guide you through to where you need to be. Never a dull moment, as his lessons bring out the best in you. I would highly recommend going to him, as his style is very different than other tutors or professors. He encourages you to engage in what you are studying; to be proactive and animated, which ultimately leads to results, while having fun in the process. His style is the way learning in general should be. His techniques will train you to remain calm in the face of adversity. You will not regret going to Alex. Again, as long as you put in the time, he will help you get the results you want."

5 Strategies for Developing Writing Skills

Unlike some other academic skills, the ability to write well is something that follows you from elementary school all throughout your life, particularly if you work in an office environment - so it's no wonder there's such an emphasis on it in school! From creative short stories and descriptive paragraphs in elementary school to lengthier prose and argumentative essays in high school, and then implementing those skills to write research and term papers in college, students spend a great deal …
