About Joy
I am a graduate of UC San Diego (bachelor of arts, sociology) and UCLA (master of public policy). As a child of immigrant parents, I value diversity and love learning languages. I read, write and speak Spanish fluently, and have intermediate command of both Cantonese and Mandarin Chinese in reading, writing, and speech.

Photography has been one of my main areas of focus for over ten years. I am trained in both film and digital formats and specialize in demystifying the DSLR so that you gain a good understanding of manual settings and how to use each to improve your photos.

Caring, compas
sion, and understanding are essential for learning and I strive to do my best in these areas.

About Jean-Luc
Dear Learners
My name is Jean-Luc, I am from the Loire Valley in France and have broad experience in teaching French at various levels (beginners to AP French, DELF and DALF) for numerous years. Based on the belief that a better world for all can be achieved through better communication, my mission has sought to improve language skills and cultural understanding for people of all ages and professions. If you want to learn or improve your French, I can help you with my French Language Training. I customize my classes and offer tutoring options to suit individual needs. My experience and skill
s combined with the Tutoring Live online enables my students to start speaking French from the very first session. I adapt the lesson to my student, even if sometimes it requires re-examining what was initially planned. I will be very happy helping you with yours needs.

My son really liked Michelle! He was all smiles after the lesion, excited about the homework, and eager to show us what he was working on. He was very very impressed, as was I, with her extensive musical background. Having the lesson in our home is a huge help in our family. Looking forward to the next session!

About Hadi
I am currently an active musician and performs with my band regularly 60-70 times a year (once or twice a week). I play piano and hammond organ mainly. With my band, I play Funk, Funk-Rock, New Orleans and Blues. In piano solo playing, I also play Jazz, Blues and Pop.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years, teaching piano/keys for over 10 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music majoring in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught adult and students as young as 5 years old. I welcome piano training for all levels. A baby grand piano is available at my
house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to tutor's location (see my Let It Be video to peek on my studio). I also have a home studio to accommodate audio recording/mixing lessons.

I am originally from Indonesia and already published two books. I can help with English-Indonesia tutoring. In recent years, I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian.

Note: I just joined takelessons in Jan 2017, therefore I do not have ratings yet.

About Laurent
Hi There!

My name is Laurent. I am French and have recently moved to the US from the UK where I spent the last 6 years working for a multinational fashion brand as a buyer.

I have a Masters in Fashion Logistics and Buying from France and in Fashion Entrepreneurship from the UK as well as experience working for small, medium and big companies. I also have created my own company in the past and have been blogging about fashion for 10 years.

My passions include food and cooking in general, so if learning about fashion is not your thing, I can also teach you how to make an amazing boeu
f bourguignon or impress your friends with some French crepes amongst other things.

Finally, I can also teach you my language, French. I have been speaking English since I was 6 years old and am completely fluent with full business proficiency.

I look forward to meeting you and sharing what I know!

A bientôt!

Laurent

Laurent is a great French teacher - he is patient, easy to get along with, and speaks perfect English so even if you don't catch on right away, he can help explain things from an English perspective. Very highly recommended!
