Wesley is just wonderful. I felt comfortable with him as soon as we met and I learned so much in just the first 30 minutes. And I already feel so much more confident that my speaking engagement will rock now that I have Wesley as my coach!

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.

I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.

I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

If you need beginner Photoshop lessons. Milda is awesome. She is patient and caring. When I didn't know how to do something she was able to break it down and walk me through it step by step. Highly recommend her to anyone who is new to Photoshop.

About Marie
I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a grea
t knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.

I really enjoy teaching, and after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more hands-on, and I have been enjoying teaching sewing and fashion design. It is rewarding to pass on a skill that used to be taught from generation to generation, but that less and less people are learning nowadays.

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

My daughter, Valerie, is 7 years old and has had two lessons so far with Sarah. Not only does Valerie love the lessons and looks forward to them, but I love the way Sarah talks to her and is caring and compassionate. She explains the exercises so well, praises Valerie when she does well, and gently corrects her when she misses the mark. Sarah communicates with me regarding Valerie's lesson and it is very easy to schedule lessons as well. I would highly recommend Sarah as voice coach for younger students as well as older ones!

I have now attended 5 lessons with Sarah and after one month, I learnt the correct techniques to breathe & sing. Certainly realized there's less to no pain in my throat compared to before lessons, and also have increase range comfortably. Sarah has different exercises to really help. Looking forward next to project my voice and singing consistently with the right techniques!
