I can teach you the basics or advanced techniques of cooking/baking, or learn a new way of doing things! I focus on creative cooking and also by learning how to deal with food sensitivities if you deal with them and work around it by finding substitutes and modification to make wonderful recipes and creations!

I teach cooking to all levels, starting with some basics through more complex methods. Simple or complicated dishes are fun when you have the understanding of the process and ingredients. The best part of it is that you will take home a delicious, healthy meal cooked from scratch. You will cook in my well equipped kitchen under my guidance and eat a delicious dish with my family. We are fun, easy going and love to laugh; join me for any cuisine and let's take your cooking skills to a next level. You will go home with recipes of the dishes we cooked and extra food for a few meals!

Our first "lesson" was more of a "get to know each other" and "painting goals" lesson in my office.

Renata has a fantastic life story and based on our mutual first interview and philosophy comparison I believe she will be an excellent teacher to help me reach my artistic goals!

I look forward to much further work and discussion with her!

I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

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!

Cooking techniques (frying, boiling, broiling, baking, braising, smoking, grilling, etc.), tools needed to cook well, pans/pan types, spices/herb review, fats/cooking with different fats, heat sources (oven, grill, stove top, microwave, etc.), "make a meal" where the student chooses it and we make it together...

I am really enjoying working with Robin. He is extremely knowledgable and experienced, and has already taught me a lot. He is assessing what I already know and what direction I want to go in, and he is making this totally individualized to the coaching i am looking for. I appreciate his efforts, expertise and thoughtfulness.

Robin is a natural teacher. I have had several golf lessons with him and was impressed by his knowledge of the sport and passion for the game. He often went about and beyond what I expected. I am looking forward to more lessons soon.

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.
