Chris taught one lesson to my son, then he cancelled the following week's lesson and never returned numerous phone calls, emails, and text messages. He didn't respond, then the following week at our next scheduled instruction he called me 30 mins before the lesson asking if he could move the date.

Needless to say, it was very unprofessional of him, and we intended to end our relationship with him as my son's instructor.

The thing got worse when he proceeded to schedule my son for a weekly reoccurring lesson for the next year. I've had to manually cancel each lesson, at least until Jan 2015.

I would strongly warn you against signing up with Chris if you expect an instructor who is reliable and responsive to your communications. I'm sorry it didn't work out, but the other problem is that this was my son's first experience to music lessons, so it was a bad first experience.

We're giving 3 out of 5 stars since that seems fair. With regards to the lessons themselves, Chris certainly met our expectations with our son's violin lessons. However, with regards to communications and scheduling, it could have been much better. More than once my son was waiting on Skype after receiving the "You have upcoming lessons" email from TakeLessons. Chris needs to learn how to cancel the lessons ahead of time. He rarely responded to emails (was trying to get him to stop showing our email openly to all his other students, really needs to learn how to use BCC). He never returned phone calls. Due to the canceled lessons, our TakeLesson pay date came prematurely, and since I waited until our son's paid lessons were completed before paying for new ones, we got dropped from the schedule and lost our time slot. Too many frustrations led to finding a new teacher.

About Erol
***AREAS NORTH OF CENTRAL SANTA CLARITA ARE DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY/ ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY***

My style and attitude toward teaching tends to be conversational, reflective, and interactive, along the lines of current research on effective education. I have developed a talent with certain creative arts, such as imaginative writing and electronic music production; as a result, I am computer literate, capable of assisting with computer assembly, maintenance, and design, as well as productivity software. Due to my limited funds, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. I also have formal education in the field of English, innovative leadership, and Education.
My current level is ABD or PhD candidate for the terminal degree in Education. I am member of the Association for Language Learning, located in Leicester, UK.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

American-English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (AEPP-ESL):
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. My emphasis for pronunciation is a scientific, comprehensive overview and treatment of the various sounds, rhythms, inflections, and patterns the spoken language integrates. I encourage practicing and mastering both the sounds themselves, as well as how the sounds are connected and contextualized. I use contemporary sound recording and .wav editing software to involve audio feedback and self-monitoring.

Sources: Burkkowsky, Mitchess (1969) Teaching American Pronunciation to Foreign Students. New York: Warren Green, 1969.

German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recording*****

I have grown up bilingual English and German, attending an international school from a very young age. I attended, also, a German public secondary school, where I earned a diploma, and I completed college-level German credits. I taught German in the language lab of a community college, for special needs students, and for private agencies, such as Tutor Doctor. My emphasis is on a comparative introduction of the language to draw out a common ground and familiarize possibly daunting differences. I also enjoy asserting that German is often underestimated as a rewarding second language to study.

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

This spreadsheet and data management software program is of crucial, pivotal importance in any business and financial environment. The program enables efficient and prompt development of arithmetic and statistical calculations of vast data sets. It also helps to visualize and juxtapose related or even discrepant variables. My approach to teaching the program is cumulative and holistic, starting with an introduction to personal inventory management to the processing of large data sets using pivot tables, charts, and dashboards. My emphasis is on making the program as intelligible and transparent as possible to avoid frustration and intimidation. I use a lot of examples and visuals that are readily available.

Typing:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

I teach the touch-typing method that is the convention for most journalistic and input-intensive organizational settings. I teach the home row, proper finger and hand positions, proficiency with left and right hands, as well as posture and concentration methods. I enrich the teaching with resources from the web, such as speed-building and error reduction.

Erol is a great teacher
He understood my weakness, the points to ameliorate very quick: his technical of learning is very efficient (I'm only at my 3rd session). Since he has an European background as well he knows exactly the difference of pronunciation between French (that I am) and US pronunciation.
He is also very devoted and patient, I recommend him no matter your background !

Steve did a great job, was thorough and patient. He knows the program well and is equally adept at explaining the concepts behind what he's doing. That's a difficult thing for a teacher and Steve did an excellent job of it. Highly recommend!

About Ana
I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school.
After receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, willing to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer, I decided to join Takelessons and become a weekend teacher here.
If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place.
You can discover the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, Each lesson will be customized to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started in Photography, Photoshop or Graphic Design, you have likely tried those
You Tube videos and gave up in frustration, as most of these videos are too fast or too advanced.
No worries, we can go through the basic at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels.
If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.

Attention: many hours of extensive work go into creating comprehensive student-specific learning content for each individual student at beginner level.
When booking a lesson, bear in mind that your teacher will be working on developing these materials after the lesson has ended.
I will do everything in my power to develop, complete and send them out to you during the same weekend.
With that in mind, please plan for taking lessons on a Saturday.
Sunday students will most likely not be able to benefit from same-weekend newly developed learning content.

About Steve
Hello,
My name is Steve and I've been teaching for over 30 years in high school and college. My main field was Algebra and Geometry but nothing has excited me more than teaching Excel and watching people understand what it can do for them and their business. Excel is very powerful but also can be very simple - it all depends on what you want to do with it. You don't have to learn it all and I will work hard to give you just what you need while pointing out possible topics you might be interested in. Also, I will help you after the lessons are over with creating formulas and/or troubleshooting. I have taught classes in many of the businesses in East Tennessee as well as two community colleges. I hope you will give me a chance to help you!

Steve's 2.5-hour Microsoft Excel 2016 introductory course was time well spent. He is not only a subject matter expert but also a highly skilled teacher. His teaching style is effective and efficient, and yet he pays careful attention to each student and provides thorough answers to all questions. Highly recommended.

Steve has been our go to Excel instructor at Cleveland State Community College for any Excel Training's we schedule at the college. He is not only a great instructor but an even more amazing person! He is very knowledgeable and know's Excel like the back of his hand. He can teach anything from beginner to advance. Steve keeps his training fun and engaging all while learning the in's and out's of Excel. We have received nothing but amazing review's on Steve from every level of Excel he has instructed. I've even had companies tell me they aren't interested in any excel training unless Steve is the one teaching it. If your looking for someone to show you the ropes of Excel, Steve is your Man!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

About FanonX
Hello everyone! My name is FanonX (Fa-non-X) and I am a music DJ, Producer and aspiring software developer/Data scientist. Music and coding are truly my passions and I hope one day I can combine both to create applications for the world to use. I'm truly fascinated by machine learning and its capabilities. I realized the best way to educate myself is to educate others.

Developed and built multiple applications using HTML, CSS, swift, java and python. Since I'm an aspiring data scientist, I've changed my focus more to python based applications. But if you have any questions on any programming language or any programming concepts please ask them away.

I make my own personal music and mixes. I use Ableton live 9 to create my own personal beats and I use serato Dj whenever I'm djing live. I've dj'd at multiple events, clubs and even concert
s. I would love to share my experience with anyone that is interested.

I'm currently still learning and hope I can learn from you all as well. Join me in this exciting opportunity and lets learn from each other.
