Andrea - Mother of an elementary student
Mrs. Jacqueline is a wonderful teacher. She is enthusiastic, caring and accessible. She used different reading strategies to help my son to learn the sounds of the letters and decode words, as well as to learn sight words.

Mrs. Jacqueline has high expectations for my son and he made a lot of progress in his pre-reading skills. She motivated my son to learn and as a result he was engage and eager to learn how to read.

Mrs. Jacqueline develop a good relation with my son and with me. She was always willing to send me updates on how my son was doing and giving me tips on how to help him at home. I am very happy with Mrs. Jacqueline teaching skills, I am looking forward for her to continue teaching my son in the near future.

Very helpful tutoring our son for spelling and reading during his kindergarten and 1st grade years. Recommended.

Ms. Jacqueline has been of invaluable help in assisting me in my preparation and analyses of reading selections for students in grades 6-12. She is very well read, and possesses insight into theme, plot, and character development in works meaningful to teens and teens. Her guidance helped me prepare materials I was proud to present to my superior.

30 Years experience. Areas: Editorial - Magazine, Photojournalism, News - Covers, Features, Lifestyle, Concert, Photo/Digital Illustration. Commercial, VIP, Celebrity, Red Carpet, Real Estate, Event.

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 ...

About Richard

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 Profession

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.

My approach to teaching Drawing is a non-traditional, non-textbook way to drawing lessons. I will nurture the inner artist in you while having fun with it. I know that it can be intimidating at first, but drawing is supposed to be fun! I'll show you how. :)

Or If you feel the need to something more than just the basics, I will instruct you to further your technique and skill in drawing, free you from the creative blocks you may have, and help unleash that inner draftsman!
