Adam is a really great listener and excellent source of thought provoking, well timed input that has really helped me develop and improve my story organically without changing its intention with strong suggestions as most people's feedback often attempts to do. If you're looking for a hand in finding your own voice and to strengthen your writing skills or excellent constructive feedback for your story then look no further.

Adam Gaines is a godsend. I was really lucky to have his guidance over the years which helped my craft and dedication to the art of writing greatly. He is a proven writer with legitimate credits but also, he actually cares. He is always ready to help and takes your material seriously which is most important when you want honest feedback and guidance. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of films, screenwriting, and the industry that is both impressive and beneficial. He is a wonderful friend and mentor who will always have a great recommendation or suggestion ready for your work and/or career. Adam is an extremely open individual with an immense passion for film and the craft of screenwriting which becomes infectious. That trait is crucial since it keeps you driven to keep learning and grow. He is also an excellent conversationalist with his own voice which is truly refreshing. Highly recommend.

With more than 7 years of teaching Psychology and metaphysics I am here to assist those who are beginners/intermediates in the field seeking practical and effective lessons on Psychology. My lessons are unconventional in the sense that you will not be bombarded with boring textbook information that has been collected by past notable Psychologists and scholars. Instead, in my lessons, you will actively explore into the actual reality of the human psyche by way of direct observation of your very own psyche/mind.

"Marta is the reason I graduated High School. The amount of effort she put into helping me graduate really showed me the power of having a good teacher. By giving her students the right tools and the right space to do their work and really understand their subjects allowed many kids in my school to graduate with their diplomas. For her I will be forever grateful. Oh! She also made biology and history fun!"

"In our limited time together, Colin effectively helped me to prepare and be ready for the AP Calculus exam. He was able to cover any topic that I had questions on, and in great detail; he always explained each step of every problem thoroughly, not leaving anything out of the picture.

Another thing worth mentioning is Colin's passionate approach to teaching. He would always go about each lesson with unmistakable enthusiasm, showing that even calculus could be fun, if you were willing to see it as so. He was also always willing to go all the way with any problem, even if it went over the time limit; he wanted to make sure that I had no questions or concerns about any topic, no matter how complex it might have been. So, all in all, if you are looking for a suitable calculus tutor, Colin is certainly a very worthy option!"

She took my information and helped me formulate a plan according to my needs. She took my old presentation and helped me to change it to make it far more powerful and compelling. My presentation went from mediocre at best, to a solid well accepted presentation. In fact, when my presentation was done, I had two separate decision makers ask me to present with their companies."
