About Jordan
Well Rounded.

That's how I believe every man and woman should become.

Most people put more time in one field and neglect everything else, when they should be efficient in multiple studies.
Being truly brilliant, is being truly knowledgeable overall.

In my life, I gained experience in many different fields and believed that it would be best to share them all with everybody else, and help each individual become someone knowledgeable in many different aspects of life too.
Because you never know, sooner or later, someone may ask for something that only you can help them with!

My son is quickly learning to read and play notes, beats and chords - which was broken down into basics and explained well. I think this will also improve his math understanding.

Jordan was very patient and personable with my son's lesson. It was his first time learning to play his beginner acoustic guitar. Jordan began with the basics, explaining frets, chords, how to pick and precisely tune listening to an online tuner.

The tuning homework exercise was just right for his introduction. He brought along his electric guitar and explained things for us in a way that was easy to understand and pick up. He is looking forward to his lessons.

About Blake
Greetings! My name is Blake and I can't wait to meet you! I have been practicing design in the corporate, fashion and entertainment industries for over ten years. I can assist you with your goals from learning a new design software to providing guidance one of your current projects. Whatever you want to achieve, I can assist you by finding the right path. I do not have a set curriculum because every student varies from age to experience. My only rule is to take fun seriously!

Whenever I'm not at the computer, I'm acting, improvising or podcasting in Chicago.

I was skeptic at first to take online lessons, especially photography. However, Amira made learning simple and very interactive. She was able to teach me enough within a few lessons in order for me to be able to take photos of my children. I'm thankful for the time and money spent on lessons.

About Rush
I'm hoping to get to work with students who want to dive right into mastering their camera and all it has to offer, whether we're shooting on film or digital, both of which I can offer instruction in. Learning to be in absolute control of your camera and how your settings will affect your photos is key to creating your images & making sure they come out exactly the way you envision them. Our time together will be a full immersion into light-writing. Over the years, I have had approximately 4 years of cumulative formal instruction on the subject, and have been freelancing since 2011, for events such as weddings, anniversaries, baby/bridal showers, graduation and engagement photos, live concerts, and just about anything else you can think of. Previously a Photography student of Daytona State College in Florida, I made the move up to Chicago
in 2015, and am currently studying at Harold Washington College. In the spring I will graduate with my Art Studio AFA. I genuinely look forward to any time spent with someone with a desire to hone their craft, and hope to bring more inspiration to those wanting to bring forth their vision. Aside from photography, I also teach a handful of other subjects that you or someone else may be interested in!

Rush is awesome! He broke down the camera into easy-to-understand steps and focused on areas I was struggling with. I learned a lot in a very short amount time.

guitarist in a local Chicago band LOOMS. a year ago we asked Rush to design a flier for some of our upcoming shows. we were so in love with what he made for us, that I ended up reaching out on my own to ask for photoshop tips. we did one "formal" lesson (this was before he was registered on the website) and man we covered a lot in 45 mins. i was surprised when rush told me he is still in school. you would have no idea from the way he conducts his lessons.

As a seasoned takelessons teacher myself, I was enthralled with Rush's professionalism and deep understanding of photography.
Many of my own students are adults who now finally have the time to learn something they've always wanted to do. So, I decided to follow my little long-term dream of learning more about photography, and boy am I glad I did! Rush is kind and patient, and has a knack for lesson personalization. I can't wait for our next lesson!!

About Rose
I'm a professional fine art, portrait photographer and arts educator based in Winston-Salem, NC. I teach photography at WSSU and moved to the area from NYC, where I worked in professional advertising and fine art photography for the last 10 years. Prior to NYC, I was in London working in fashion and advertising photography. I have also worked in the non-profit sector in arts administration, specializing in education, programming and artist residencies.

I have a diverse background in all things photo and love teaching this absolutely invaluable skill.

If you are looking to learn the basics of photography, on either film or any digital camera, or mastering studio lighting, I can meet any student at any level and create lessons just for your needs. I can work with groups, couples, parents and children and teach all aspects of photogra
phy.

In addition to my professional experience, I have degrees in Photography and Art History from the City College of New York and Daytona State College.

When I'm not teaching I'm usually working on a photography project! I publish and exhibit my work regularly throughout the US and spend a lot time outdoors with my family!
