I would highly recommend Tony Mitri as a voice and music instructor. My son takes lessons with Mr. Mitri and his progress has been astounding! He studies with other teachers previously without much success. My son has said he has learned more from Mr. Mitri than all of his previous instructors. He enjoys the lessons so he works harder at making progress and it shows. He helped him expand his range substantially, and increase his confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in music of any kind. Mr.Mitri is awesome professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. You won’t be disappointed.

Whether you have never picked up your DSLR camera before or are starting to become serious about photography, my lessons will help you get on the right track. I have been teaching Photoshop on Takelessons for 3 years now, and I am now deciding to expand my lessons and offer photography as well. We can go over how to use your camera, what gear you should bring, lenses, how to control: shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc. We can get into technical aspects such as printing, post processing, and sharing your images online as well. I am a "Canon guy", so that is my specialty!

About Sam

Hi! My name is Sam! This is my fifth year with TakeLessons and I couldn't be happier with the students that have come my way. If you're reading this, then you've taken the first step in finding a tutor that is right for you!

I completed two Bachelor's degrees at Worcester State University in Massachusetts. I have a B.A in Spanish and a B.A in Communication.

I love Spanish, and I believe that you can really get the hang of it after a little time and practice. With grammar review, practice, and vocabulary memorization, it becomes really easy to learn this language. I am more than happy to be here to help you learn this exciting language! Proper pacing is crucial to learning a new language. Therefore, I make each lesson customized for every student.

Every lesson, you will receive downloadable links with all of the content covered

in the lesson.

I also teach group classes. These are great for those that prefer larger classrooms and interacting with peers. Check out the Takelessons Live page and sign up for some of my classes!

Aside from Spanish, I also teach Adobe Photoshop & Photography. There are endless possibilities with Photoshop, and I am here to let you discover some of them. No experience? Tired of watching online tutorials with no feedback? Maybe you need a tutor to guide you through the process!

We will start off with layers and then go on from there, moving into the more intricate tools such as the pen tool, layer masks, and blending modes.

For photography lessons, I teach you the technical language you need to know when talking about photos. I will show you how to command your DSLR camera to get the exact photo you want.

My passion to expand my knowledge and expertise in the photography world allow me to take an active role in the journey of skill acquisition and effectively develop lessons that push the students to rapidly take their photography to a higher level.

About Harry

I have always loved the learning process and so I made it my mission to create a life of helping others to learn.

This life has mission has taken me around the world teaching various subjects in all sorts of places and my love for it grows more and more everyday.

I have seen from all my wonderful experiences that having a teacher working closely with you to guide and support you allows students to fly and achieve anything they want.

In the case of learning a language its such am individual process that immediate feedback and adaptation of the lesson is the key to quick acquisition and confidence in applying those language skills.

I believe my enthusiasm, patience and problem-solving skills are the perfect combination in helping my students to achieve their dreams.

I am excited to work with you.

Wanting to get out of using "Auto" mode and understand your camera? Are you looking to step up your game with composition or color theory? Maybe you are looking to understand post-processing better. I have been teaching and training for 5 years, 3 of those in photography with many more years in photography itself. There is nothing I don't enjoy shooting and there is nothing I enjoy more than teaching the art of photography to others. My entire family are all artists, from painting to designing, so I have lived art my entire life, all 35 years of it. My lessons are custom and personally built for you and will meet your expectation and accomplish what you want to specifically.

About Cory

It all started as a child, and I didn't even know it. I always looked for what I used to call "The Postcard Scene" in any situation. I kept an eye out for that in everything I did and every where I went. Slowly but surely, I came to realize I had been training my eyes for photography.

I eventually started getting into the technical side of it with Nikon and became Master Certified for Nikon on that front. I was a product and technical advisor for the local clientele from the news stations to portrait/studio photographers and even gallery photographers. I eventually started branching out on my own, creating my ow portfolio and loving every second of it, from designing shots to post-processing them.

I love all things creative and all aspects of photography, but if I had to choose a favorite style, it would be a hard choice between Landsca

pe and Nature. I love the unique, unusual perspectives as well as the problem-solving aspects of capturing what I experience during that Sunset, or that day of Trailblazing.

I want to share my thoughts and theories with you too, as well as teach you the technical side of it. Photography is very personal and a form of art, let me help you start or move ahead in your journey in this amazing world of photography.
