Donna was patient with me which helped a lot, as it takes a couple of examples for me to understand the material. I definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning astrology as she is well experienced. You won’t regret it. :)

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound
way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

Edward and I had a horrible time trying to connect via the Take Lessons interface. I could see and hear him but he couldn't hear me. This being interactive doesn't work. We futzed with it for about 20 minutes and then went to Skype, which worked perfectly. Take Lessons needs to get their act together on their interface.

Once connected via Skype, we had an almost instant "buddy" connection. Eddie is really pleasant and very good at working with what you have, which in my case is not much. We spent the first ten or so minutes with me hitting simple shots with the cue ball only so he could study my "technique." He immediate spotted about three flaws and we spent the next thirty or so minutes working on grip, alignment, open and closed bridge (left hand use for a right hander) and ball striking for an on line shot. From there he had me shooting a simple cut shot explaining how to aim it, hit the spot and pocket the ball. I must have hit that shot for him 30 times with only ONE miss. The whole time he was giving me feedback on minor corrections and positive reenforcement when I got something right. We finished the hour with him giving me practice instructions for the next week and a brief conversation about sticks and tips. It turns out I lucked out and bought what he called "an excellent entry stick".

I played a match with a friend right after the lesson and applied what Eddie had given me in our lesson. I made a lot of shots I would normally not have expected to make utilizing Eddies instruction. I still lost the match (my friend is highly advanced) but gave him more of a game than normal, and won two out of five. I'm very pleased.

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

About Ayana
Greetings! My name is Ayana! I have been sewing for 15 years and teaching for the last 7 years. I have attended sewing classes as a student in school as well as in the community to both sharpen my skills and gain experience to teach students. I know sewing can be a tedious task, however I make it fun and easy by teaching simple techniques I picked up over the 15 years of sewing. My lessons are customized based on the students level of skill and the desired project at hand. Do you just want to learn how to work a sewing machine and hand sew to alter simple tears, buttons, and sizes? Or perhaps make a prom dress or start a clothing line, either way I can be of great assistance. I travel to your home! And recommend at least 4-8 hours to cover the basics. So, Are you ready to sew? Inbox me for detsils and let's get started! BOOK ME NOW! :) Se
e you soon.

About Isabela
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teaching me that age is just a number and that learning can happen any day if we choose so.

I'm an enthusiastic learner even after 19 years of formal education (two Masters, one Bachelor) earned on two continents continued by US military education in various forms, and formally tested student who needed to document skills that were not formally captured on paper (like the foreign languages I know).

I love interacting with people and pass on my knowledge from five visited continents, instill love for learning and continuous curiosity for any subject out there.
Nothing is impossible when you set your mind to it. Failing once doesn't mean that you'll never win (proof in my athletic years and life ever since); determination, hard work, self-motivation and a good supporting system can bring to reality even the most insignificant dreams that we believe may not come true, and especially those in which we passionately trust.

I believe in breaking down a goal into objectives, assigning tasks to each one of them, and then sticking to achieve them.

I'm a Certified Instructor with the Department of Homeland Security. My hobbies include practicing foreign languages by speaking them, learning about cultures and slangs, etymology, watching foreign movies, traveling internationally, taking photos, reading (a lot), carefully planning with room for error and impulsive decisions (to take the boredom out of things), meeting with life long friends, drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors for inspiration.

I'm elated at the opportunity of brainstorming with you and giving you tools to be an independent learner.

With my family's trip to Italy quickly approaching, Isabela is helping me review all the things I have learned so far, as well as teaching me all the new things I will surly need in Italy. Now I am even more excited for my family's trip, and I feel that my vocabulary is as strong as it could possible be in four months. I can't wait to test it out! Today's lesson was super helpful and exactly what I needed. I can't wait for next week.

Hello,
As a custom designer & seamstress of many years, one thing that I enjoy doing is helping and teaching students with creating a finished project. Whether it is a basic top/ shirt, a jacket, a dress, pants, handbags, hats, etc.
One important part of starting to sew is the basic's . This will help you as a beginner to get through many obstacles even at intermediate and advanced.
Fashion and sewing is exciting. It is something you create with your hands and imagination.
Not only am I experienced with garments, I can help with interior design projects, such as window treatments and pillows.
