About Akib
I am eager and equally interested in applying to offer my skill. With the academic and leadership qualities that you are looking for, I believe I would be able to contribute to the objectives.

I am presently enrolled in New York Institute of Technology as a junior in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and complete my bachelors by December 2015. I am thrilled to know that you are looking for a tutor and I feel that this is the perfect platform for me.
As a result of my previous work experience in the Learning Center in my college for the last couple of years, I believe I am well equipped with not only academic qualifications but also experienced in working in an energetic and dynamic environment. I have been also serving for a tutoring Center, Math Matters and very much familiar with the new Common Core Curriculum. I am also
familiar with Regions Curriculum I have also served as a Supplemental Instructor for Physics that adds to my leadership abilities.

An opportunity to be able to work will prove to be mutually beneficial. While I will be able to gain further experience about the real-world applications of teaching, I believe that will also be a great addition to the working terms and contribute to your goals and objectives.
I am very enthusiastic about this opportunity and believe will be worthwhile for us to meet. I have enclosed my resume and would gladly answer any further. Please feel free to contact TakeLessons using the details mentioned.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

This tutor does not fill the total time paid for. If the student has no more questions, rather than structuring the lesson like other tutors he will simply finish early! I am sure he is very knowledgable, but his accent is very strong, making learning a newer subject harder through trying to understand new words with a strong accent.
A fan was constantly ticking in the background, and he admitted his internet connection was poor.

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, Toon Boom Harmony, and 3DEqualizer.

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 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 Nick
My name is Nick and I am a freelance photographer located in Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. I am new to the TakeLessons platform but have many years of experience as a photographer and photography teacher.

I specialize in travel, fine art and sports action photography. I am a life-long photographer having worked for a weekly newspaper, a motorcycle racing magazine, as a wedding and event photographer, and as a sports photographer. Over the last 15 years I have photographed local town events, Middle and High School sports, college football, fund-raising events for non-profit organizations, motorcycle racing, bicycle racing, running road races, Rock ‘n Roll bands, and high school senior portraits. I am now focusing most of my time traveling around the world and making and exhibiting my photographs of the local landscapes and people. Many o
f my images have been published in newspapers, on various websites, and exhibited in many art galleries.

I enjoy teaching students how to "make" photographs, drawing from the skills and techniques that I have learned from my real-world experiences as a photographer. My students learn how to use their camera as an expression of their artistic vision. They will learn all aspects of workflow including research and preparation, camera settings, composition, post-processing, printing, and framing. The goal is for each student to create images that they would be proud to exhibit or display on their wall at home.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, please contact me for further information, to discuss your goals and objectives for making pictures, or to schedule a session. I offer both in person and remote lessons. Thank you.
