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.

I had a hard time booking Shamaya because of timing issues but I’m glad I did. She jumped into our first lesson at the exact spot needed (I’m trying to speak to my mother in law, not learn the aphabet). She speaks fast, but goes over everything in such detail and with repetition so by the end of the lesson I was repeating her. I haven’t learned a language before so thought I’d be intimidated, but she’s really easy to talk to. I recommend her to anyone trying to give it a go for the first time.

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.

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.

About Cynthia
I tutor general computer skills - both Mac and Windows, although I specialize in Apple products. I also specialize in digital imaging, photography, Photoshop, and web design fundamentals (WordPress in particular). I am a good instructor for an older student as well as a person who wants to improve their skills but may be embarrassed to ask, since I have experience with the technophobic. I work with a lot of small, often women-owned businesses who want help with all aspects of running a business including social media, preparing materials for clients, using online newsletters (Constant Contact, Mail Chimp), accounting in Quicken, general business strategies, and refining a brand.

If you're looking for a general computer orientation - naming conventions (important when learning to ask the right questions) or fundamentals plus on major ap
plications (Microsoft, Adobe, etc), I am happy to tutor you on those subjects. I have in-depth knowledge of most popular applications, and of iPhones and iPads and using iCloud synchronization effectively.

I'm a Cambridge based photographer who is well versed in all aspects of 35 mm film and digital photography as well as photo editing and post-processing using Photoshop. If it's related to digital images, photography or photo editing, Photoshop, or computer skills for these or other software programs, feel free to ask me a question.

I love images and the magic that is photography and I enjoy teaching photography techniques, skills and concepts. I also teach digital scanning and restoration.

Thank you,
Cynthia
