About Austin

Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound

way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin

Austin is an excellent instructor. He was very patient with me and helped me to work on the areas that I felt needed the most improvement, developing new techniques and skills to take my game to a higher level. I highly recommend!

I've used Athan for several lessons now and he's become a friend. Happy to write this review for him (though I secretly don't want other players to get the same coaching :)). I can't recommend him enough as he's saved me tons of money and has made me much more. Athan is so smart and analytical. I already knew how to play before we started but I wasn't winning much if at all, in my home games and in casinos both in cash games and in tournaments. Athan came with a completely custom lesson plan and helped break apart how to think about the game in general, how to play players, the math, specific leaks/weak spots, and different situations. Just try one lesson and I think you'll see the same.

Tyra is amazing. It was a bit hard to see virtually. We had to do FaceTime because your platform did not work which I believe was not a problem on my side but yours. Nonetheless I am looking forward to my next lesson. She’s a gem

Tyra is a wonderful teacher. My son (10) does lessons once per week. He has struggled in the group setting at school, but with Tyra he looks forward to his lesson every week and loves his time with her. Tyra has great methods of instruction, she knows her stuff, she's funny, kind, straightforward.

We love Tyra. She teaches in a selective high school for the arts, so is used to getting the best out of kids. And I love that she comes to our home!

About Hans

Hello there!
My name is Hans and I am the quintessential do-it-
yourselfer. I’ve loved woodworking for about 20 years now and have finished my first tiny house on wheels (see photos below). It's a beauty if I do say so myself. Before I devoted full time to the design and completion of the tiny house, I apprenticed under an expert cabinet builder and trim carpenter to hone my skills in the trade. My ideal student may be somewhat or completely new to woodworking and wants to dive in with their first project. Maybe you have already gotten your hands dirty with a few projects but want to progress to a more difficult task but need guidance. What would you like to build? Whatever the case, look no further.
At your service,
Hans
P.s. I only teach lessons over the internet through the video classroom feature on TakeLessons platform. I do n

ot teach in person at present.

Bruce P.

Bgcheck Background Checked


About Bruce

Bruce learned the game of chess in the late 60's, becoming a "Fischer Kid" during the 70's. In high school, he easily captured the team championships and represented his school until graduating in 1976.

He taught some of his fellow students to play and improve in their games during this time and enjoyed sharing his joy of the game with others. Although life has sent him in many directions career-wise, he has never strayed far from chess.

In addition to chess, Bruce has played semi-pro football and is also now a dance instructor. His understanding of working with body and mind to create the best you makes him a unique choice in mentoring young students about chess and life in general. His enthusiasm for life and the activities he teaches are contagious and he hopes that each of his students enjoy the time with him enough to "pass

it forward" to others!

About Bridget

It's a great day to learn something new! Hi my name is Bridget and I would love to be able to assist you in learning the art of sewing. whether you are a beginner or not, learning is fundamental in everything we do. all you need is a sewing machine, sewing supplies, time, and a big dose of patience. and we will hit the sewing room run running.! Lets enjoy what we do and how we do it, by bringing forth your skill set and my love and passion for teaching and sewing, to the next level. I have 30 years of sewing skills and 19 of those years I have taught people from all age groups to learn how to sew. No I had no schooling, in sewing my education was in commercial art and advertising design but I had always wanted to know how to sew. so one day I was gifted a sewing machine and made all the dresses for my wedding and haven't stop sewing since

. so I hope we can enjoy each other's company as we explore the endless gifts in sewing.

Shelby D.

Ballwin, MO 63011


About Shelby

I learned to sew when I was 9 years old and it has proven invaluable in my life. Whether it was bonding with my grandma making things for people at church or making my own costumes for plays, I was always ready to learn something new. I was lucky to get the opportunity to work in the costume shop in my college theater, and learned many new techniques (not to mention getting to work with much higher quality fabric and machines).
I was introduced to crochet by a friend in high school who taught me, and have learned from various online tutorials and books to create the things I wanted since learning. Though I know how to knit, I'm always drawn back to crochet because it's much faster to master and, I find, much easier.
I would love to pass on my knowledge in a fun, carefree environment. If a student isn't having fun, they're definitely not

going to remember the lesson. I make sure that students feel respected when they ask questions, and if there is still confusion, finding a new way to explain the concept.
I look forward to meeting new students and sharing these wonderfully freeing hobbies.
