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 Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Please inquire about rates for semi privates, group, and corporate training.

In studio lessons are available as well inquire for details.

About Danschnieder
Hello my name is Danschneider. I cannot wait to meet all of you. I have been teaching chess, singing, English, algebra, and basic Math since 2002. I am more than happy to teach in-home, or in-studio to anyone. I have been a martial arts practitioner since the age 15, in different martial arts reigning from Hung Gar kung fu, Karate, and my specialty the Filipino martial art of Eskrima. I have years of experience teaching drawing from basic line drawing, to shading, coloring, etc.. I write my own original poems. I am a voice enthusiast as well. You want to sing like your favorite celebrity I will gladly show you a trick or two, you don't even have to be a pro to do so. I have been working with two non- profit groups such as KIWANIS and S.I.P.A. Under KIWANIS I became more in tuned with different kinds of people.I'm also very good with the c
hildren and teens. S.I.P.A. was a program where I worked with children from ages 6-12. I might not be a parent, but I know how to keep the kids enthusiastic and cheerful . I am willing to teach and work with anyone.

About Belen
I'm a music composer/songwriter originally from Ecuador, who is also a life-long ice figure skater. I graduated with a masters degree from Berklee College of Music Valencia, in the Scoring for Film & TV program. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Contemporary Music back in Ecuador, as well I I studied piano and Portuguese (as part of my love for Brazilian Popular Music).

I'm teaching again because I'd love to contribute with my skills and connect with new people in their learning experience.

Ice skating taught me discipline, patience and perseverance in life. As I my body reached injuries from years of skating, I'm not training anymore, I hope to translate my passion for this sport through teaching and supporting other skaters. All ages welcome!

My love for songwriting and singing is combined with languages. In our language cl
asses we will learn from culture, history and research of the customs of different south American countries. We can also develop project that involve learning songs in Spanish (and/or Portuguese). We can also practice a lot of conversation about your favorite topics!

I graduated with B.A. and M.A. degrees in Philosophy and Literature from University of Buenos Aires in Argentina. After moving to U.S. over 20 years ago, I completed my M.B.A. with emphasis in Finance from Loyola University New Orleans College of Business. I love teaching kids and have been tutoring Spanish, ESL, Homework Help and Study Skills for the last 10 years. I have also home schooled students in Elementary and Middle School. I was an elementary and middle school Spanish teacher for the Louisiana public school systems and I currently teach several subjects at Halstrom Academy. I have taught Spanish to English speakers and English to Spanish speakers, which gives me a thorough understanding of both languages. My approach consists of adapting my tutoring technique to the child’s learning styles
and needs. I have a “you CAN do it!” attitude and effectively communicate this to my students.
