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!

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her! I couldn't have been happier.

She was so happy to help. Very frustrating as I fell behind in Spanish over 2 quarters but Jackie is getting me back on track with compassion.

Stella as my first tutor on takelessons. She is not only an incredibly accomplished crafter and artist, she is a patient and knowledgeable teacher too. She really went the extra mile and I feel much more confident using my serger now. I will definitely be booking her again!
