Baking is a hobby of mine. I will teach you a few organizational tricks regarding effective ways of laying out the ingredients ahead of time that expedite the mixing processes and make putting them together a smooth and enjoyable experience. I will reinforce the importance of keeping the wet and dry ingredients separate for as long as possible. I will also introduce some clever ways of dusting an oiled pan with flour before inserting the batter.

We have had the pleasure of knowing Sam Bean for many years and would give him an A+ for his singing, guitar and performance skills. In short, Sam is awesome and an exceptional person.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

Stella is a wonderful teacher. What I had been unable to teach myself, she taught me in no time. Patient, thorough, funny, interactive and did I say patient? And in seconds, she knew my machine better than I. And who knows, I may decide to learn a new craft just so I can continue working with her.

What do you want to bake? I am a graduate of the MATC-Truax Baking and Pastry Arts program, and I have worked in all aspects of scratch bakeries. Whether you want to bake a lot or just enough for 2, I've got you covered!

I specialize in teaching baking with yeast. I can also teach cake decorating, cookies, cake baking, and various ethnic pastry techniques.

Depending on your level and what you'd like to learn, I will build on any existing knowledge you may already have. I also do my best to utilize the kitchen items you already have, so you don't have to break the bank buying new "toys" all the time...!

**For my baking and cooking classes only: I only perform these classes in the student's home, not online. If you are interested in a baking or cooking course, you will need to be in the Phoenix / Laveen, AZ area. Thank you.**

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

Dave has been very helpful and patient. As a busy mom that I am I had never had the time to learn and master any skill in the kitchen. He has share with me skills that I had been able to implement in my life to facilitate and expedite my time in the kitchen. My family is enjoying the cookies, and cakes and I am able to prepare myself.

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.

I am a professional Pastry Chef with 30 years in the business. I have worked in all sizes of bake shops, from the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, Burks of Santa Clara, and small bakeries.

My teaching experience spans 20 years. I have taught at the Art Institute in San Francisco, as well as the Cordon Bleu, also in San Francisco. Also, the Mission Valley ROP had me create a culinary program from scratch, as well as writing curriculum. I mention this to show that my teaching experience spans all ages.

I am available for private home (yours) lessons, party baking demonstrations/classes, and online instructions, and answering questions. Even if your in the middle of a project and not sure what happened.

Had a great time learning the basics of pie and bread making with Chef Stephanie. She is very knowledgeable, patient and hands on. She helped create a curriculum that I was interested in and was well organized, so I was able to have everything I needed before the class to ensure it's success.
