About David

My name is David S, and I have been a CG artist and animator for 8 years. Computer graphics is a passion of mine, and I consider it a joy to pass on what I have learned to others. In 2014, I graduated from Huntington University with a B.S. degree in Digital Media Arts - Animation, so I possess a very good understanding of the principles of animation that spans just about every medium. I have also worked on multiple independent projects ranging from shorts to feature films, which has given me a wealth of practical experience.

If you consider yourself a fun and creative person and have an interest in animation or design, then I would love to work with you to develop your skills. Perhaps you're more interested in Hollywood-style special effects, in which case I can teach you many of the secrets of the trade. Regardless, I can provide soli

d training to get you started in any of these great fields.

Software Taught: Blender, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya, The Foundry NUKE, Blackmagic Design Fusion, mocha by Imagineer Systems, and 3DEqualizer.

About Adam

Hello there! I help people make the transition into a tech career. I myself made that journey and have mentored many people successfully into a tech job. My most recent spent 30$ on a course I recommended and followed my advice and mentoring. After 4 months he landed his first software developer job.

When I learned to code I doubled my salary in less than a year and have had lucrative job offers since. If you are driven, hungry, and want to learn the craft of software development AND how to break into this field, I am happy to walk with you and see you launch on a fulfilling, rewarding, and lucrative journey!

This was my first time using and Take Lessons and my experience with the instructor Adam has been amazing. Adam understands how to explain very technical concepts in way that anyone can understand. Software development is new territory for me and I really appreciate how patient Adam has been. He is a highly skilled developer and an excellent instructor on the Take Lessons website. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Adam has been a wonderful teacher/mentor! He helped me decide which was the best online programming course for me, and has been patient and knowledgeable through the process of my learning. I have even obtained my first job in IT since working with him.

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.

Jocelyn is an excellent teacher. She was always responsive and flexible. She made learning fun every time we met. She was always in a chipper mood and made me feel like my priority was to be a better teacher

I was unsure if I wanted to go back to school. I was unsatisfied at my job and I didn't know what to do next. Jocelyn was great in that she listened to me but allowed me to make up my own mind. She had a lot of experience as a student and as an educator. She helped me to pick the right program, school, and prepare me for the GRE. i'm now enrolled in a program I love and I look forward to graduating and going into my new career.

About Jonathan

Since I began my professional career 9 years ago, I went from not knowing a single thing about Microsoft Excel to teaching individuals within a 5,000+ person organization. Many tutors have computer science degrees or have technical backgrounds, but I learned Excel from a non-technical perspective. This key difference enables me to relate to students with differing backgrounds, and I teach Excel the way I learned; with fun, easy to understand, real world examples. I will not talk over your head, and my mission is to help you master Excel tools so you can solve any business problem that you encounter!

Additionally, I have been working in the data and analytics industry since 2009, and have an MBA in Finance and Competitive Strategy.
