About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

The online AutoCAD class was very helpful. Steven answered all of my questions, and provided good practice tips for starting new files that I didn't even know I needed to know. The hour went by quickly, he kept a good pace, but was sure to answer all the questions so I could take notes and be able to do on my own.

Collyne was so helpful and worked at my speed!

I had a basic understanding with Photoshop but was fuzzy on a lot of topics. She cleared up my confusion and took my understanding to the next level!

I plan on booking another lesson with her next week!

Collyne was great! I had used Illustrator before for small tasks here and there but had some big gaps in my knowledge of the program. Collyne has really helped me fill in those gaps and in turn produce some great work!
Collyne is patient and extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend Collyne to everyone.

About Joshua
Hey future students!

A while back, I taught myself photoshop. Since then I perfected my craft and have had hundreds of clients in my own freelance business.

Yes, hundreds.

And they always love my work!

But what was more important for me was being able to create anything I could imagine and share that with the world.

Photoshop is a tool that lets you bring your thoughts to the screen and being comfortable in the program is like having a super-power.

So how do you get this ability?

I’ll tell you...

I will teach you everything from the ground up so you become a Photoshop master. Starting with the basics and then moving to advanced concepts.

You will know all the tips, tricks and hot-keys that will have you buzzing about the app like a wizard. . When you are able to utilize Photoshop like this, people are so impres
sed they might hire you or share your work with their friends… i.e. you end up going viral. You might think of the next great business Idea and now you will finally be able to create your vision.

This may just be the most powerful course you take to date.

So click the link and let's get started right now…

It’s going to blow your mind when you learn how much power Photoshop actually gives you.

Now, with this tutoring, I am giving you something valuable that took me a long time to master. Not everyone is willing to invest time and effort into improving themselves, but you are so you deserve the best.

In my course, you’ll learn:
Photoshop core and advanced functionality
+
Why certain graphics look perfect while others are doomed from the get-go

The 3 simple traits that all great designs have in common

How to easily edit and retouch photos to make flawless or surreal content

And so much more...

- Josh

About Dana
Not sure you have the brain or the background to be a world-class developer? Sick of your current job and dying to try something creative, challenging, and rewarding, all in an industry that's growing? I know exactly how you feel, because I was there too and I have seen and helped dozens of people break into software development with confidence and a clearer understanding of the skills involved.

I specialize in Ruby on Rails, which is a web framework that incorporates the Ruby programming language, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and database technologies--all of which you can learn quickly and master. I have been a professional Rails developer for over three years and a web developer for seven years. My background in teaching English abroad, as well as software support and mentoring developers makes it easy for me to adapt to your level of know
ledge, your pace of learning, and most importantly, your STYLE of learning.

I came from a non-technical background and thought for sure that I was too "right-brained" to do this work, so I know that the struggle is real. More than anything else, I want you to know that If you are interested in programming and you are willing to work hard to understand the tools involved, then you already have what it takes. Let's get started!

About Eric
Greetings! I am a 2D and 3D Animator, Designer, and Director of Animation who has been creating computer graphics professionally at a Boston production company for nearly a decade. My regular work includes animation and motion graphics, 3D modeling and rendering, compositing, visual effects, graphic design, and film/audio editing.

My work can be seen in museums across North America including the National World War II Museum, the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico, the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, and the Canadian History Hall in Quebec. I have also created animation for documentaries such as the Emmy-nominated "Birth of a Movement" and "Give Me the Banjo," narrated by Steve Martin.

I am passionate about teaching and love helping folks with their computer graphics endeavors, regardless of age or experience level. As a
teacher I am patient, articulate, encouraging, and committed to helping students reach their goals.

I am experienced with many digital tools including After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Autodesk Maya, and V-Ray.

I think computer graphics is a fantastic area to get into. It is the core foundation of many modern career paths, and a great supplement to many more. It's also a ton of fun, and enables you to tell any sort of visual story you can imagine, given the proper tools. If you're interested in growing your computer graphics capabilities, whether you're an industry veteran or absolute beginner, I would love to share my experience and help you on your journey.
