Nick coached my daughter, Ann, through her South Bay Teen Idol Competition, in which she was a finalist. Ann was competing against singers with more years of experience, but the superior quality of Nick's instruction enabled her to be competitive.

About Emily

I've been working professionally as an artist since 2009, making graphics and illustrations for clients and having worked for Disney Research for just over a year. I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in 2012. I'm currently a freelance artist, but I also love contributing to the art education community by inspiring and instructing anyone who wants to learn.

I specialize in drawing/illustration, digital painting, and 2D hand-drawn frame-by-frame digital animation, mostly in the context of video games (with 2D graphics). Many of my drawing/animation students have been interested in drawing/animating animals, especially furry/anthro memes. I've helped students complete tiny looping animations, creating memes as well as short films.

My hope and mission is to successfully distribute my knowledge,

skills and experience to anyone who wants to acquire them.

I'm capable of a large range of improvements, from goals as hobbyists to more professional goals. I have successfully helped students get admitted into their desired art schools through portfolio preparation, as well as helped artists get their first gigs as freelancers. I can serve as a mentor for an artist's early years as a contractor.

Lessons are taught through Google Hangouts video calls where I always share my screen to clearly show my demonstrations in real time. Students may also share their screens if they are working digitally. If students work on paper, they may take phone pics and message/email them to me during class, or hold up their work on the webcam if it's high enough quality.

Thank you for your interest!

This was my first introduction to animation. Emily was great! She was patient, and very knowledgeable. She taught me how to use my software and showed me different techniques I could do. Planning on taking a couple more classes

About Jacob

Hi there and thank you for considering me as your personal mentor in the world of digital artistry. A long time ago this world was just a hobby for me as well, and I hope to help you develop your skill set into something much more. I have over a decade of exposure to the rapidly-adapting professional photo and video world, with experience spanning from the smallest of freelance jobs all the way to mainstream feature film production and post. You can spend a lot of money in workshops or online training, but nothing comes close to the value of one-on-one personalized training. Because I enjoy teaching, I make an effort to keep rates affordable for the value of education given. If you're a photographer wanting to make your photos look like the pro photos you see online or a videographer looking to advance your work to the next level then wel

come aboard!

I look forward to meeting you.

I had a great experience with Jacob as an instructor. He is knowledgeable and his advice was relevant and to the point. He invested time to critique my work and even sent detailed notes. Highly recommend!

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

About Shaun

I am a Work Force manager for Chewy.com- The majority of my time is spent teaching analysts how to use Excel to plan and schedule/forecast and audit many different programs.

I did not have any formal teaching, and was forced to learn excel the hard way by researching online, so I feel like that makes me a good teacher to learn from because I truly understand and can explain the major uses of excel. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have!

Some of the things I can show you:
-Macros
-Index(Match())/Vlookup/Hlookup/Sumifs/Averageifs
-Conditional formatting
-Data analysis add-ons and Forecasting techniques
-Power Queries
-Mail Merge
-Various shortcuts and helpful ways to customize excel to fit your specific needs.
-Data visualization tools to help in presenting your information in effective ways, linking Excel to Power

Point in order to streamline for weekly reporting.
-linking Excel to Outlook in order to speed up data reception.

I would recommend Shaun to all professionals who want to further their Excel knowledge. The classes were informative and fun. He had endless patience to cover If statements, VBAs, macros and complex formulas. The exercises were all real life in order to represent the professional requirements in the business world.
Shaun skill and talent level is far beyond what I expected to find in a tutor.
I will use Shaun in the future and highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with Excel.

About Mitch

Whether you're completely lost, just need a little help, or need some test/note taking tips I can be very helpful. My patient, easy going, and positive mindset is very conducive to creating a great learning atmosphere. I can also be very useful to those that aren't motivated, I have a knack for finding the source of motivation for others.

Are you frustrated with the college application process? I can assist in this area and in aclimating to college environment. I've mentored many students through college, with great success.

Hope to work with you soon.

About Igor

Hi again,

(by the way, i'm writing this assuming addressing the person that i will work with, if you're a parent or somebody else reading this, please imagine you were the one that needs this service).

So in the previous section i think i described myself pretty thoroughly. I will use this section to let you know what you can expect from me, so you have a better idea of who i am and what i can do for you.

I will focus on YOUR needs

What does that mean? I remember when i was learning English and they were teaching me a lot of irrelevant stuff. I learned things like: " Sally likes apples and Bob likes cakes" It's all nice, but what i really wanted to know was what to say to a teacher when i want to go to the washroom. But nobody ever asked me what i want to learn, they just told me what i should learn. And that's fine, there is a plac

e for practicing things like "Sally likes apples", but if you have an area where you want to improve in. Tell me and we'll practice. We can roleplay! I will ask you questions and you will try to answer as best you can and i will correct you. I will talk with you in English like i would talk to a friend (like my friend did to me when i was learning English) and you will pick it up much faster! I will go as slow or as fast as you can handle. You can tell me about your day. Or ask questions. We will try a few things and find what works for you!

I am a fan of compound learning.

What does that mean? Here is an example! We can learn what the words: apple. Juice. I. Want. are individually. ORRRR we can learn a sentence of: I want apple juice. Instead of trying to make your brain remember 4 objects separately, you will only have to remember 1 object that contains all of those smaller objects. That speeds up learning a lot. Of course, it depends on your level. And we will start with the very basic stuff. But as soon as you get the basics, we will move on to this. And before you know it, you will start speaking in complete sentences. And once you speak, you will read, write and be on your way to think in English.

I will be patient with you!

I will go at the speed that you can handle. There will be homework too!
