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.

Marcel tutored my 6 year old daughter in German. He is very friendly and likable, and she enjoyed working with him right away! He even played "Filly's" with her (a German My Little Pony toy!" He is very patient and makes learning fun. He was punctual and also flexible. We had a great experience working with Marcel!

About Marie
I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator.

My other passion is Fashion Design. I am a Fashion Design graduate from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). I studied Fashion so I
could make my own patterns. I have been sewing for over 30 years and just love creating clothing or costumes for my children and I, with commercial patterns or my own patterns. I am pretty crafty, really good at modifying patterns, and I have a great knowledge of fabrics. I love fashion illustration and the whole process of creating a line.

I really enjoy teaching, and after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more hands-on, and I have been enjoying teaching sewing and fashion design. It is rewarding to pass on a skill that used to be taught from generation to generation, but that less and less people are learning nowadays.

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

Marie is great explaining any sewing questions that one may have. She takes her time to ensure that the student understands and will answer any questions. I selected her because of her background and I knew she would be a great instructor for me. She understands my idea and is willing to see that I accomplish my goal.

I have taken one on one lessons from Milad for almost a year and I have mastered so many techniques that I never dreamed I would be able to do. Milad is very patient, has amazing skills, is a wonderful teacher, and has given me so much confidence in my jewelry making abilities. He has elevated my skills exponentially. Nothing compares to the experience of learning privately from a master metalsmith and jewelry designer. Milad's lessons are a bargain when you realize that you are learning how to make jewelry from a professional jeweler who will devote his full attention to you and make sure that what you make is exceptional. I can't recommend Milad enough.

Adler is a teacher who I'm fortunate enough to also call a friend. He is very passionate about art, is a very positive influence, and fun to be around. He doesnt sugar coat his critiques on your work but isnt harsh about it either. He gives many good pointers and advice, knowing how guide students to better foundations and improvement.

Adler is not only a great instructor but an awesome person. He'll work with you one on one and really help understand the subject clearly. He helped me understand zbrush more than an actual school course did, at least for me.
