About Shelby

I've been studying French for 7 years and Japanese for 4 and have tutored in both subjects. I even received the language department award in my senior year of high school. I'm also majoring in English at the moment, and can answer any questions regarding that subject, including essay writing, reading, grammar, ect. Many of my friends ask me to edit their essays and it's something I really enjoy doing. I have also been a math tutor for a few years and feel most comfortable tutoring Pre-Algebra. *** Lesson Details *** I'm a laid back, patient tutor, and I like to go over concepts a few times with my students. I find it's best to provide plenty of examples and really take the problems step by step, especially for math. It's also very important to me to go over past quizzes and see ...

Extremely helpful

My son has been working with Shelby for a few weeks now and I can already tell there is a difference. He was not thrilled when using an in home tutor but he really likes the online aspect. Shelby tutors him in English and French and I'm looking to see some great scores on homework and tests in the near future.

My son's review of her is, "She is the best teacher ever!"

Renee is very knowledgeable, but also has the God given gift of teaching. She truly pulls the best out of my son. His diligence and focus are growing, right along side of his piano skills. We could not recommend her more highly.

I cannot tell you how many individuals have come to me and told me, "I have this sewing machine but I don't know how to use it." This is your opportunity to learn how to perform basic tasks with that sewing machine that might be collecting dust.

Being able to sew means being able to save money and make something that is unlike anything you could buy in any store.

I will demonstrate how to use your machine, how to care for your machine, how to read a pattern, how to preserve those special patterns that you use most often and how to be creative and make something that is yours and yours alone.

About Tina

I started singing professionally at the age of fourteen. I have had leading roles in semi-professional theatre productions since I was seventeen. I have also been assistant director, musical director, choreographer, costumer and writer for many productions from West Side Story to My Fair Lady to Camelot. In the theatre I have worked with and trained children and adults of all ages. I have also conducted summer camps that were theatre workshops for children. I was a school teacher at a Charter school for eight years and I taught music and drama to children from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I have been giving voice lessons for more than twenty years. I tailor my programs based on the needs of my students. I am passionate about music and I love being able to share that with other ...

Ms. Tina is the best singing teacher in the High Desert! My daughter loves coming to her lessons, and has vastly improved. She has had 3 other singing teachers prior, but they did not teach breathing and vocal techniques. Ms. Tina coaches and critiques without being overly critical. She challenges my daughter with different genres of music, which has helped her not only widen her interests in music, but also improved her vocal abilities tremendously.
So if you're looking to sing better just for fun or for a competition, Ms. Tina will help get you there!

Best Vocal Teacher Ever!!

Ms tina is an excellent vocal coach, her ability to cover the most important aspects of vocal instruction is very impressive. My experience with her has been extremely beneficial. I had been singing 5 plus years and after taking vocal lessons with Ms.Tina I realized I was singing the wrong way and damaging my vocal cords. After working with Ms tina for a little over 1 month I was able to identify correct breathing tecniques, pronunciation, as well as being able to stay on key. Ms tina is extremely professional, patient, reliable and very passionate about helping her student's reach their goals and aspirations in music.
Any direction that my signing career goes, I would love to keep her as a vocal coach!

Please see the Overview below for general information.

I have been sewing for over 30 years and was making my own clothes by the time I was in second grade.

I teach the foundation skills of handwork, using a sewing machine, finishing, hemming, ironing, measuring, pinning, cutting,and following a pattern or instructions.

I can help you make curtains, pillows, bags, aprons and other household items. If you want to make clothing, I will guide you through using a published pattern or basic garment.

My lessons are not like reality TV. Projects take longer than you may think they will. I will teach you how to properly create a quality finished project.

Please note, I do not teach pattern making, draping and advanced tailoring. My experience with serger/marrow machines and stretch fabrics is limited. If you have vintage clothing that you want to restyle, I can recommend other teachers.

About Kim

Teaching is a wonderful extension of my work as a professional crochet and knit designer and technical editor. A web search will reveal some of my published work over the last decade. As a craft teacher in the NYC area for over 7 years, I have worked with individuals, groups and classes of all ages and skill levels. Most of my experience focuses on working with older adults and people with special needs. Minors must have a supervising adult present. I do not work with groups of young children. I have studied the history and mastered the skills to make and teach a vast variety of textile techniques. Please see my experience. Private and group lessons or classes are provided in locations around the NYC area, in my space or via webcam. My focus is on providing an entertaining, relaxing

I had my first lesson with Kim and am so tickled to be able to learn from her via Skype. She was able to clear up every question I had; brainstormed with me as to how to alter a pattern since the yarn I was using did not fit the gauge; and generally made me feel at ease. I'm looking forward to having future lessons with the ever-so- patient Kim! If you have taken knitting classes in a group and been disappointed, this style of one-on-one interaction will feel sublime! Can't recommend her enough!

Lessons are given based on the students level and learning desire. Everything from extremely basic skills like learning how to use your sewing machine to more advanced techniques such as alterations of ready made clothes and creation of patterns.

I left a VM at TakeLesson's 800 number today and no one could help. My daughter and I drove 10 miles and arrived on time at the teacher's location only to find out, Angela Perez was not there. The appointment was for 2pm and I received a notification at 2:16pm. I called Angela and she informed me she sent the cancellation in the morning in which TakeLessons has a policy of 24 hour lead time!

We scheduled this meeting a week ahead and my daughter was excited, only to end with tears at the location when no one was available. I am not sure if this is either a technology issue in notification, the teacher's lack of attention or both, but this is not indicative of quality services.
