First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.
I am from a musical and visual arts family from Brazil and my background ranges from classical, pop, rock and a jazz solo and group arrangements.

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.

I can cover just the photo/camera end for you. And, or, can teach you the digital computer skills you need to bring you images to the next level.
I will teach you how to reveal your own photographic "eye". That is, now to use the camera as an extension of your expression, how to take what you see, and put inside a frame.
I teach photography concepts from the art form, and from basic through advanced technical and aesthetic.
You will learn how a camera lens is much much more than just a zoom closer/farther tool for your scene. The lens you choose is vital towards helping you achieve the vision you are bringing to your work. Camera exposure is similar.
I will also teach you how to "see" your scene or subject as "values" of shades of black, white, and the grays between. This ...
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.
Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.
When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.
Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

Richard got me off to a great start with my new camera.

Thanks again for your time and info yesterday. I will email you soon, and we will figure out when we should meet for our next class.
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!
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.
Hands on instruction on manual camera settings (ISO, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, etc.). Framing the subject from different angles. And most importantly, how to see light the way your camera sees it.
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.
Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.
Caring, compassion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.
I am a professional photographer with extensive experience in Photoshop retouching and Lightroom editing. I can help you to refine your editing skills, so you can enhance your creative abilites!
Hi! My name is Alex, and I have a degree in Italian modern literature from the University of Turin. Apart from being a native Italian speaker, I am also fluent in English. I currently live in Portland, Oregon and I enjoy music, photography, hiking and food!
I am also a professional photographer with extensive experience in digital retouching and Lightroom editing. So if you are looking to improve your editing skills or understand how to use your camera in manual mode, feel free to get in touch!
All levels, from absolute beginner to pro – at the convenience of your own home and at your own pace! It’s just you and me – so everything’s relevant.
As a photographer, I like to think that I’m efficient at finding the holy grail of documentary photography, the “decisive moment” – every single time. I’ve been perfecting my photojournalistic style for decades and reached the point where the skill of “blending in”, becoming ubiquitous yet invisible morphed into a habit. My working style gravitates towards documenting the natural flow of your event.
But there’s a flip side: every once in a while, merely capturing what’s in front of me just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I have to shatter the ambience and create a peculiar mix of light and shadows, divergent colors, delivering a brand new reality. I do all this at the set, not in Photoshop – so we’re creating a reality, not faking it.
Is it possible to learn this power? Of course, that's why I'm here!
"I have taken about six classes so far from Julie and each time I go away with better knowledge of working my camera and processing photo's. Julie always
takes the time to help each individual during class so they understand the concept. She always comes prepared for class and she always asked the students for their input on how to improve the class for the next group of students."
"Julie is patient and explains the subject clearly. Lessons are a joy!"
"Sarah is a delightful, smart and talented photography teacher. She went to the trouble to read up on my particular kind of camera so she knew could tell m
e all the details. So helpful! Totally recommend her to anyone who wants to learn photography!"
"I am learning so much in just my first session. My instructor Julie is amazing, very easy to follow and has a very upbeat and positive personality. I am v
ery much enjoying this class!"
