Had my first lesson last night to learn about night photography. I bought myself a fancy camera (Sony A7R4) and I had no idea how to use it or what any of the buttons did other than turning it on and having it set to auto. I didn’t know the first thing about photography other than point and shoot. Irina immediately had me change my camera to manual and told me to not use auto. I loved that! Irina also told me the lesson was going to be a lot of information for a beginner such as myself wanting to learn about my photography first. Yes, it was a lot to take in but, I can say that I left my lesson with Irina feeling way more confident about how to use my camera properly and I can’t wait to have additional lessons to learn more. Now I know the 3 basic settings of Shutter, Aperture and ISO and how they affect your shots and Irina even put together a booklet for me that explains the basics of photography that includes the need to know information on how to change settings depending on photography location, lighting time of day, desired effects etc. Fantastic job Irina and I can’t wait to learn more with additional lessons.

Great start to first lesson

I lost the "joy" of photography with Irina. Technically, she knows her stuff, but her sensitivity and people skills are lacking. Barely an encouraging word. I felt degraded, nervous, and overall shitty by the end of the second lesson. Hoping for a better experience with another teacher.

I can't really talk too much about how other teachers work, and also don't want to. But I know I have and always had many happy and successful students. From kids, adults, professionals, hobbyists to people who retired and finally have time to fulfill a life goal.

Marcel is an extremely capable German tutor. He has an extensive understanding of German and will out of his way to help you learn.
Friederike
I take lessons from Marcel for about 5 years now. We started with Accordion and I asked him later if he could teach me German as well. I knew he would teach German. No I am taking 3 hours accordion and mostly 2-3 hours German on the weekends and I am loving it.

I can truly say he is one of the best teachers / tutors out there. He is not only super patient but puts so much heart and passion into the lessons.

I know he is mostly super busy but if you have the chance to take lessons with him, I would say GO FOR IT! :)

Publisher is a user-friendly desktop publishing kit with a low learning curve and a lively, essential toolbox of publishing features, as text and object templates, graphical editing interface, and marketing upgrades.

My emphasis is on intelligible and transparent learning to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available. The most common requests are as follows: exporting/importing files and objects, arranging/coordinating text with graphic elements, applying visual effects, and allocating efficient marketing templates, along with variable, custom topics for an optimal, pertinent lesson experience.

I have facilitated learning for diverse age levels, as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. I have years of experience using productivity software and teaching Publisher at a private computer training school, web-conference platform, and to in-home seniors

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

"I've been taking lessons from Jason for a month or two now and I can definitely say that I have gained a lot more knowledge and experience working with him than I would have working on code myself. He knows when to help and when to have hands off which is extremely important when learning how to program. It definitely helps when it comes to actually learning how to do it myself instead of having someone do it for me. Have some patience going into it because programming isn't as simple as some would believe especially if you're trying to understand it. So if you want to learn how to program or need help with something he's definitely the guy."
