I am a beginner, but because of Larry's different method of teaching music theory, it was easy for me to understand the fundamentals of music scales and consequently the origin of the chords and how they are formed. Larry goes the extra mile to make sure that you capture and understand the concepts.
Thank you!

Larry P has been an excellent starter piano teacher for my son. In 10 months my son is able to understand music and is on the road to being more confident in his ability to play the piano. Larry is patient and has a firm grasp on music concepts that he can easily transfer to any student who wants to learn.

Where to start. Alex is a just a great all around person. He makes learning fun. As long as you put in the time and effort he will guide you through to where you need to be. Never a dull moment, as his lessons bring out the best in you. I would highly recommend going to him, as his style is very different than other tutors or professors. He encourages you to engage in what you are studying; to be proactive and animated, which ultimately leads to results, while having fun in the process. His style is the way learning in general should be. His techniques will train you to remain calm in the face of adversity. You will not regret going to Alex. Again, as long as you put in the time, he will help you get the results you want.

Alex is a very good teacher. He managed to make things simple and was fun. He was even understanding when the Takelessons website made things difficult.

Qazi is a serious tutor; I like that about him. He is also very intelligent. What I like about Qazi is that he balances the simple and the complex very skillfully. We reviewed terminal commands and started with Python. He knows his stuff but he doesn't brag. He lets the results speak for themselves. I am proud to be his student.

As a complete beginner in computer programming I had no idea where to start. Rafeh was able to help me gain a better understanding of the numerous languages and point me in the right direction. Awesome teacher and nice guy.

I have been working with Rafeh for 6 months and the results are far better than I could have imagined. When I started, I was a total programming novice. I began an online Coursera class in R programming and Rafeh’s help was the only way I could have completed it. He is a flexible and patient teacher. I found that he was committed to my full understanding of foundational concepts. He was not merely concerned with getting the answers right and getting through the class. Together, he guided me through several online courses using both Python and R. He has given me enough of a programming base to be accepted into a master’s program for analytics. This wouldn’t have been possible without his help.

Rafeh is a pleasure to work with. He has a friendly demeanor and is flexible with his scheduling. He is very knowledgeable in computer science, yet is able to explain to a total beginner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I have a M.S. degree in Computer Science from Stanford University. Additionally, I have worked in the computer field my whole career as a programmer, engineer and project manager.
Java is a great language to learn Object Oriented programming concepts. It is also the language of choice for many university Computer Science Programs including Rutgers.
I have helped many Rutgers students with their coursework for courses such as Introduction to Computer Programming and Data Structures. I work with each student in as much depth and detail as required to ensure they come away with a better understand of Java and Object Oriented programming in general.

If you look me up on the web, you will find that I am a principal artist on the world's great opera and concert stages. Such a career is only possible by working with the very best people. Finding the right teachers and coaches is almost an art in-and-of-itself. Patrick, is most assuredly one of those teachers. His knowledge of the computer and several challenging disciplines is unmatched in that he knows how to convey that knowledge. I not only learned from him, I enjoyed my lessons.

Jean is awesome at teaching Excel! I had a great time working with him learning pretty much everything there is to learn about Excel. He prepared a great lesson plan for me. I'm proud to say that I went from someone having very little exposure and experience with Excel and now to someone with a lot of confidence in creating beautiful reports with things like charts and pivot tables all with Jean's help. I highly recommend Jean!
