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.

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.

About Sandy
Having taught Chinese Language Skills in the private sector, primary, secondary and college institutions for a number of years in China, has not only given me great confidence to teach in a classroom setting, but has inherently brought an instructor comfort that feels natural to me.
In addition, finding an opportunity where I can assist the kids, middle school and high school students and adults who love to learn Chinese college staff while maintaining my teaching proficiency in traditional or simplified Chinese characters is both welcome and rewarding to me.

I'm certain that my rich knowledge and years of experience in classroom practical application of Chinese Curriculum / Culture coupled with my love to teach make me a professional, responsible and patient teacher.

In addition, I can teach you Chinese in your location which
is no more than 10 miles away from Vista where I live. I can also teach you how to play badminton and cook delicious authentic Chinese food.

Ms. Qi is a very accessible and diligent teacher. My son can be difficult, but she found ways to quickly connect with him and get him to open up. She accommodated his need for assistance with his regular work, but encouraged us to "start again" with Chinese which is probably a good idea. Very much appreciate her experience and enthusiasm.

About Jackie
Hi! My name is Jackie, and I have 15+ years of experience in teaching, tutoring, and training. Currently, I am enjoying managing two small businesses while teaching students part time.

All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help ALL my clients reach their goals!

A couple years ago, I returned to San Diego after living in Peru for several years where I taught English as a second language. My students ranged from adult business people and academicians to primary and secondary school students. I really needed to utilize different teaching methods depending on each student’s needs. Some students wanted more business-related conversation, so I had to be able to teach business principles in marketing, communication,
logistics, interviewing, and so much more. Critical thinking was an area that I pushed my business students to improve. Other students needed to work on the basics of grammar, reading, and writing, and we had a lot of fun in class, whether going through the interactive lesson or improvising by playing fun games to emphasize thinking on their feet in another language.

The feedback I often received from my Peruvian students, as well as my students in Mexico and the U.S., was that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they wanted to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience!

Before I left for Peru, I worked at St Vincent de Paul Village (part of Father Joe's Villages) in downtown San Diego. There I focused on Health Education. I built the Villages' first Health Education department and helped start its innovative Health & Wellness program. As part of these two programs, I taught homeless and low-income adults with and without learning disabilities, as well as children from preschoolers to high school students. Teaching such a wide variety of students how to improve their health while living in sometimes precarious situations without much income or stability pushed me to think creatively and come up with memorable ways to engage the students and help them apply what they had learned in their daily routine.

In high school, I took all AP and college prep classes. I went to a liberal arts college in Virginia where I focused on social studies and biology. I spent a few years training business people in Microsoft Office, Photoshop, InDesign, as well as presentation techniques. In grad school, I specialized in applied anthropology and public health. During that time, I tutored students in web design. In between, I've worked in Communications and Training in international health and development, so I have a lot of experience to bring to teaching.

Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helping kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.

Right now, I'm writing two textbooks to be used in my Spanish classes. I've also written several academic articles published online. I love traveling, cats, and learning!

About Swetha
I love cooking. I generally cook for friends and family. They were asking how did you make this recipe. I was teaching them how to make those recipes .That's when I got the idea to teach online. I grew up in southern part of India . The culture is we cook our food everyday. I grew up learning my mom's cooking. Once i got married and moved to America that's when i started my own cooking. I explored different foods and tastes. My habit when i eat anywhere i try to explore the ingredients.
It's basically my nature. I have this deep enthusiasm for cooking . I am sure i can share what ever i have learnt and i can help all those who are willing to learn. I can spend extra time explaining the basics of Indian cooking. You can contact me with related questions anytime and i am happy to answer. I am looking forward to this opportunity to teach Ind
ian cooking.

About Ari
I am a guitarist, bassist, writer and composer based in South Brooklyn. With international touring experience, songs licensed to film and television, and a degree from The New School, I have an approach that is both holistic and comprehensive. I am easygoing, adaptable and excited to approach music education from an inclusive angle!

I teach students of all ages, and have given an average of 40 lessons per week in a variety of formats (private, group, after school programs, online). My tastes in music are as varied as my experiences - nothing is off limits and everything has the potential to teach us both something.

I own and operate an independent music collective/label with a focus on thoughtful rock, pop and R&B. We are adept at finding the right team for our artists, and have had success in music and video production, national tourin
g, marketing and branding, and licensing. I'm currently a member of 3 original bands and have continued to do an array of session work on both guitar and bass.

I am endorsed by Lakland basses and am a member of SESAC. I love coffee, chocolate, and like my eggs over medium.

About Kristina
Hi there! I'm Kristina. I've been passionate about cooking since I was a kid and have been sharing this passion with my friends and family for years and now I'd love to share it with you!

I've been teaching cooking classes for over ten years and love opening my student's minds to new flavors, ingredients and methods. I spent most of last year traveling so a key influencer in my cooking is incorporating the flavors I experienced abroad into my recipes.

I specialize in healthy, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan cooking. I can teach you how to make a variety of meals, from a nutrient packed green smoothie to a vegan shepherd's pie to chicken souvlaki with fresh tzatziki. I truly believe that food and cooking are cornerstones of life -- it brings people together, it can heal the body, it allows you to learn about the world around you and i
t is fun!

Whether you're looking to just get a few new recipes under your belt or you're looking to make a dramatic lifestyle change and need some coaching along the way, I'm here to help. I'm excited to begin this journey with you!

About Hardik
Hi, my name is Hardik Shah, founder of Roadside Treats. I am Indian, born in Northridge California but raised in Mumbai (Bombay), the city that never sleeps.

Cooking has always been my passion. Since I was a little boy, I loved to cook, spending hours in the kitchen with my mother, making a mess but learning delicious traditional Indian recipes, using authentic seasonal, fresh ingredients and preparing everything from scratch. Today, I am still the same little boy who is in love with spending time in kitchen and experimenting with different tastes and textures. However, I am faithful to the authentic Indian traditions, flavors and ingredients.

I love cooking Indian food at home all the time and I find the process of creating a home cooked meal to be unwinding. For me food is not only nourishing but also comforting, loving, fun, an
d pleasurable.
