About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

Taking weekly lessons at the high-intermediate level - Tatiana is a fantastic teacher - very good explanations of grammatical concepts and nuances of vocabulary/language - I've noticed great progress in my Russian since starting a few months ago.

Taryn first started teaching sewing to displaced youth at Hollywood Arts 10+ years ago. She taught "R'ashion" (recycle fashion/sewing) at Environmental Charter High School for 5 years. She headlines EcoFashion workshops all around the world including Zambia, South Africa, and recently at the Green School in Bali.

She encourages people to think of fabric like ingredients and does whatever she can to relate food to fashion including making nutrition label T-shirts to show what's actually in the tee. Due to multiple allergies, you can learn healthy alternatives of what to put in and on your body.

She is on the Advisory Board for Fashion Revolution USA, and the Fashion Department at Santa Monica College AND LOVES TO NERD OUT ABOUT SUSTAINABLE FASHION AND HEALTHY FABRICS.

My 7 year old daughter had been asking to take sewing lessons for months. She's learned so much in a short amount of time. She’s learned both hand sewing and machine sewing techniques and is looking forward to her next lesson.

Taryn is incredibly patient, professional, knowledgeable, and fun. She’s answered all my questions and let me learn at my own pace. I get excited to complete sewing projects and then show them off to my friends.

About Erin
My name is Erin Smith,

I am the owner pastry chef and sugar artist behind Sugar Inspired LLC right here in beautiful Boise Idaho. I custom design, bake and create Sculpted 3D character cakes and Wedding cakes, that are truly a bit different then the rest. I have a artistic approach in my work & decorating style. In addition to a professional background in Pastry and cake decorating.

My professional background and experience have lead to positions at our local downtown Bardenay restaurant where I accepted their position as lead Pastry Chef for three years time, creating and designing custom desserts for their locations in Eagle and Boise. I taught pastry assistants and student interns the cake decorating and baking skills needed to master their cake decorating and baking skills. I also produced desserts and Wedding cakes for the
ir B-Side's events. I continued in my path as a Pastry Chef by accepting the Executive Pastry Chef position for the City of Boise's Boise Convention Center. Leading their baking department in catering to large corporate and private events.

I ultimately decided to leave the busy culinary world and focus back on family, where I focus only now on creating custom cakes and teaching cake decorating classes exclusively. This has allowed me to create on a much different scale. These cakes not only look amazing! they taste even better! With all the years of cake decorating, sugar art, assembling incorporated into each Sculpted 3D & Wedding Cake I create.

I'm certain you will learn and master these steps in taking your cake decorating skills up a whole new level in cake decorating and designing. Start creating one-of-a-kind-cake.

Oh my gosh! Erin is AMAZING!! Seriously amazing!!!! I have been decorating cakes for a while took some private lesson through cake instructors through Micheal's and hobby lobby to up my internship skills but wanted to learn more advanced skills then what was offered in Boise, so I searched this site and found Erin with Sugar Inspired in the Boise area YAY!! Anybody who is familiar with the culinary world of cake artists knows who Erin is because of her talents! She is known by so many cake artists around the world so to find her in Boise and schedule a lesson with in her person was truly a dream come true! And she made me feel right at home! Her steps in building custom cakes was so eye opening alone so much the other teachers didn't teach correctly. I am so excited thrilled to learn more and take my skills beyond what I have achieved so far with learning Erin's technics and decorating styles!! As a students of the Boise State I am so grateful to have her here! Thank you Erin!!
