Mingla was professional but down to earth in her instruction. She was able to speak in terms that made sense about my camera and settings. I would take classes from her again! William

Instructor Mingla is awesome. She has been working with my 9 years old daughter for quite some time now. Ever since my daughter started her online math tutoring sessions with Mingla she is doing excellent in math. She was a B+ average student in math and now she is an A average. Mingla has a lot of patience to deal with kids and she makes sure they understand what she is teaching them. I can openly express this because I see how she is with my daughter. After each of her math sessions, my daughter always let me know how much she learned and how she is so happy she is able to understand math problems easier the way Mingla explains them. I truly recommend instructor Mingla for your children's needs in Math. She is a very dedicated individual who works very well with kids! Highly recommend her!

I was getting ready for a trip with my friends to tour all over in Russia this Summer and I found Sergey and he taught me a great deal of what I will need to communicate enough to get a round in Russia...
He is an excellent teacher Thank you Sergey for your great help in teaching me I know this will be a trip to remember thanks to you...
Patti C.
Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund
Janet T.
when I made an appointment, I asked if Sergey was familiar with my camera and they said yes. It seemed new to him. But after talking about my fijifilm x100F, I am returning the camera. So overall I did like Sergey and look forward to my next Hour

I provide classical instruction in portraiture, still life and landscape in your studio or mine. In this traditional approach to drawing and painting, what will be taught and focused upon are perspective, value and composition in order for the student to develop strong visual language skills. The program of study begins with a specific focus on drawing, since drawing is the foundation upon which all great traditional art is built. Throughout this training, emphasis will be placed on accuracy, or more specifically, seeing and rendering correctly such things as line quality, hard and soft edges, proportion, positive and negative space through abstract form and the use of the full range of values.

About Jeff

I'm a graduate of Dean College in Franklin, MA and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where I majored in art history and studio art with a focus on portrait painting and illustration. I continued further study at the Andeeva Portrait Academy in Sante Fe New Mexico, the Los Angeles Acad

First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.

I told her that these were my first formal lessons and she covered basic techniques and situations when they could be used to their greatest advantage. She listens closely and offered solutions to issues she was able to identify with her expertise. Complimentary and encouraging, she is a great instructor."
