About Rick

An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers, computer programs, websites and on the Internet ~~~ this section is about how "my experience" can serve you.

I created my first website over 25 years ago. In the 1990's, I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. (That means I'm good at trouble-shooting and putting out fires!)

Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor, web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller. My latest interest is creating and showing video.

From that first day, decades ago, I've been teaching. I've taught one-on-one, taught small groups of 5-20, and addressed a full auditorium. I was an adjunct instructor for MS Office products at a community college. When I complete chapter 3 of something then I'm prepared to shar

e what I've learned in chapter one!

We will work together online, and maintain follow-up contact by phone and email.

Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, our first session can be held the old-fashioned way: face-to-face! (I actually prefer that.) We'll meet at a study room at a library half-way between us.

I like to use analogies, and they work best with an over-40 audience. Many millenials today have never seen a dimmer switch on a car floor or carried a digital pager.

I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, on your local network and on the Internet.

_____
PS: At the end of the last century I was assembling computers by hand, but don't tell anyone. They will want to use my trouble-shooting skills to help fix their hardware, too.

Rick was great to work with. I had specific issues I needed help with and he was able to steer me to the proper techniques and answer all my queries.

This morning I have completed my lessons with Rick for Word Press. I’m ao excited to get started applying everything I learned with Rick. Can’t say enough about Rick and his teaching methods. Truly patient and his step by step teaching is excellent! Now when I view YouTube tutorials, I have an idea what is being spoken about! Was lost before Ricks classes. He goes above and beyond! Highly recommend! Thank you Rick!!

About Etana

Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas

sion of Design with you.

I came into this not knowing a single thing about Java and after our first lesson, I had such a better understanding. Collin was able to help me to relate to the different terms and vocabulary and I am excited for our upcoming lessons. It was a great first experience.

About Nick

My name is Nick and I am a freelance photographer located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. I am new to the TakeLessons platform but have many years of experience as a photographer and photography teacher.

I specialize in travel, fine art and sports action photography. I am a life-long photographer having worked for a weekly newspaper, a motorcycle racing magazine, as a wedding and event photographer, and as a sports photographer. Over the last 15 years I have photographed local town events, Middle and High School sports, college football, fund-raising events for non-profit organizations, motorcycle racing, bicycle racing, running road races, Rock ‘n Roll bands, and high school senior portraits. I am now focusing most of my time traveling around the world and making and exhibiting my photographs of the local landscapes and people. Many o

f my images have been published in newspapers, on various websites, and exhibited in many art galleries.

I enjoy teaching students how to "make" photographs, drawing from the skills and techniques that I have learned from my real-world experiences as a photographer. My students learn how to use their camera as an expression of their artistic vision. They will learn all aspects of workflow including research and preparation, camera settings, composition, post-processing, printing, and framing. The goal is for each student to create images that they would be proud to exhibit or display on their wall at home.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, please contact me for further information, to discuss your goals and objectives for making pictures, or to schedule a session. I offer both in person and remote lessons. Thank you.

Nick was awesome. Helped me choose the proper camera settings to optimize conditions and maximize the quality of the image. Educated me on controlling settings for various light conditions and depth of field. Very helpful and well worth the drive. I will definitely call on him again to fine tune what I've learned once I have a chance to practice.

"As we had just started with quickbooks, Liz is a very informative instructor with a great deal of knowledge towards the program. She has an answer to any
question you may ask and is very clear with her response."

"Donna is a wonderful instructor. She is very patient and does everything she can to help you understand the material. She makes learning not only fun, but
interesting as well. I would highly recommend her as a tutor or instructor."

"He was very patient and knew exactly what to do."
Chris
"A while back, I decided I wanted to start an investing blog. The problem was, I had no idea how to do it. I knew Word Press was one of the most popular
programs for building web sites, but that was about it. I was able to secure my URL and get a hosting service, but I soon learned that Word Press was not going to be something I could efficiently learn on my own. After having a couple false starts with other instructors, I found Etana, and she is fantastic. She listened to what I wanted to do, and today I have a web site, which includes a blog, and I am able to post blog articles and pictures and do many other updates to the site. My regular weekly lessons with Etana are coming to a close, but she's only a click away if (more likely WHEN) I run into the next obstacle and need some help."
