About Marcel
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,
Marcel

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.

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

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.

Mariana was a great tutor. I am an adult with little experience speaking French. I enjoyed our conversations and she made learning the language very enjoyable. I hope to continue.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

I have been sewing ever since my wonderful Auntie Anne lent me her manual sewing machine one summer when I was a teenager. I sew clothes for myself, clients and even have an online store where I custom design clothes. I can teach you to make whatever you want. I will go at your pace so fear not even if you don't know how to use a machine. Let's have some sewing adventures together.

About Ainslie
I am an intuitive, Jungian-based astrologer. A life-long yoga practitioner, I presently run a yoga nonprofit. Daily meditation is essential to me. I had my astrology chart done on a whim in the early 90's and immediately became enthralled with the art.

I began my daily blog, featuring Street Art from around the World, in April of 2013. I published two of my novels, written in the late 90's, this year as well. With an MA in counseling Psychology, and a PhD in Philosophy and Religion, I bring a psychological and philosophical perspective to my work. My PhD, from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, concentrated on symbol systems and Jungian Psychology. With over twenty five years experience in astrological counseling, I impart a unique, artistic vision, to my workshops and readings.

Ainslie is equally patient and dynamic in her teaching style. Moreover, the breathe of her astrology knowledge is unparalleled, and she effortlessly imparts a thorough knowledge of the subject in terms that are clear and concise. After my own lessons, I would enthusiastically recommend Ainslie to any student interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of astrology.

Ainslie has given me two astrology readings.. both of which have given me a deeper understanding of astrology and myself. She is meticulous with her work and very patient while explaining all the information she gives, you can clearly see this in her weekly blogs. What I loved most about Ainslie readings is that you really feel how passionate she is about Astrology and this makes the experience so much more meaningful and fun! Thank you Ainslie!

About Heather
I fell in love with theatre and European history as a young girl and have spent most of my life either on stage or with my head in a book. When I started college, I struggled to decide which one I wanted to pursue in an educational environment and professionally until I realized there was nothing stopping me from doing both. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine in 2016 Cum Laude with a B.A. in European Languages and Studies with an emphasis in Early Modern Europe and a B.A. in Drama. Since graduation, I have spent most of my time working in childcare, but I recently decided to take the plunge and pursue acting professionally. Since this means I have a much more flexible schedule, I decided that I wanted to share my love of both European history and theatre here in the form of teaching.

I've been tutoring in various su
bjects since 2012 and love helping my students discover their talents, reach new levels of understanding, and find joy in learning. I am committed to not only helping my students retain and understand the material but also find and master techniques which will allow them to continue successfully without guidance in the future. I am very patient with my students and do my best to create a fun, positive, and encouraging learning environment, but I hold my students accountable and expect a good work ethic as it is a waste more of my students' time than anything else if they are not prepared or engaged. I want them to succeed and flourish, and that only works if both parties are motivated and ready to work.

My schedule tends to be very flexible, and I am happy to offer lessons at your home, at my local library, and online. As a result, lessons are scheduled to best fit the student's needs whenever possible. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you feel like we would be a good fit. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and flourish!

About Kodjo
Most people simply call me Joe. I have a bachelors in Fine Art, an MBA and been making clothes for my clients for over 25 years. I taught many people sewing and they've gone ahead to tackle various projects on their own to their own disbelief. Creativity comes to me naturally and with a background in figure drawing and painting, my knowledge of anatomy of the human figure helps a lot in translating it into designs for all figure types and sizes. I have handled many interior design projects also, so all these experiences equip me with immense knowledge to transfer to those who want to learn all about sewing, whether as a beginner, an intermediary or advanced student.
