About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

I am a Freelance Graphic Designer who specializes in branding and web design, but is also trained as a hand letterer and calligrapher. I currently work for National Geographic Learning in Downtown Chicago and I will devote most of my free time helping you become super awesome at being a graphic designer and I'll give you a few tips on starting your own Graphic Design business.

About Moataz
I am a Freelance Graphic Designer living in Stamford, Connecticut. I love learning and teaching, like a lot. I teach languages, Lettering, branding, and the basics of Graphic design as well as the adobe programs that bring it to life.

My promise to you is that I will teach you everything I know in the time I'm given and provide you with all sorts of outside resources to get you on your way to fluency and proficiency.

I'll make sure to do my absolute best to get you speaking a new language from day one, learning a Design program immediately, or teaching you how to letter with the rules they don't teach you in school. And best of all, I'll even show you how to actually make money with all of these.

I have a very unique journey into learning where I experienced many places and got a fresh and different understanding to the many su
bjects that I teach. For example my knowledge of multiple languages and travel to different countries gave me an added knowledge of linguistics that I experienced first hand and confirmed in books, so now I know how languages work, and can relate a concept from one language to another even if the languages seem completely different.

My Design work has been very general so I've done a lot of different things before I specialized in hand lettering, so I've done it all from advertisements on billboards to website design and development, to copywriting, to branding from start to finish for companies big and small.

My love for lettering and Calligraphy emerged when I started getting more Logos for client work and my exploration of type wasn't the best answer most of the time so I would letter everything myself, and the rest is history.

I am really passionate about learning and even more passionate about sharing what I've learned. I am efficient, I know what works for different people since I taught in classrooms and tutored way before I knew about Takelessons, and I'm most proud of being praised as a very genuine person. A very common compliment I get is that I sincerely want my students to do well. And it makes me really happy every time someone says it, and I hope that one day you see that and tell me the same thing.

Feel free to find out more about me and ask me anything you want, and I really look forward to one day teach you something that will get you to achieve your goals! :)

Just so there are no surprises, I raise my prices very slightly every 3 months, next time it will go up is on March 3rd 2017. The reason for this is because I get better and more efficient at teaching as time goes by, so that hour that you get now is much more packed with value than the same hour last year or last month.

I've been designing for over ten years and I look for eager students to understand what they're doing as oppose to just memorizing. I will listen to your goals and adjust the curriculum to your needs. Whether it's working with Adobe for the first time to getting advice for a project you're currently working on, I can assist you with your needs. I have lots of energy and love students with a sense of humor! Let's start having fun!

About Blake
Greetings! My name is Blake and I can't wait to meet you! I have been practicing design in the corporate, fashion and entertainment industries for over ten years. I can assist you with your goals from learning a new design software to providing guidance one of your current projects. Whatever you want to achieve, I can assist you by finding the right path. I do not have a set curriculum because every student varies from age to experience. My only rule is to take fun seriously!

I have used Adobe Illustrator for the past 5 years for both academic and professional work. I also use it in my spare time for graphic design, tweaking logos coming up with new ideas for friends and co workers. Live paint, live trace, and creating outlines from text are a few features that allow me to create diversified logos.

About Steven
I'm a recent graduate of the Boston Architectural College, and employed by a large architectural firm in Boston. I am currently teaching a Rhino 3-D course at the BAC I tutor in all aspects of architecture including portfolio design, writing, software tutoring, design critiquing, and overall academic guidance. For software, I specialize in the Adobe Suite, AutoCAD, Revit, Rhinoceros, and V-Ray. I've tutored students of all differing ages and skill sets, ranging from novice to advanced user. Further, I have numerous references and reviews about my services that I would be happy to pass along, as well as past design work that I have done both academically and professionally. Lastly, I have numerous resources students can use after tutoring sessions are complete such as reference manuals, tutorials, and websites to visit for additional learn

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.

Learn about all the ways to manipulate images from pixel based images with resolutions to mathematical xml elements like SVG images that can get infinitely big or infinitely small!

GIMP and InkScape are the programs of focus but ask about Photoshop and Illustrator if interested in that direction! GIMP and InkScape are equivalent FREE software under the Open Source GPL License, you can use this software to do image editing to the professional level with no charge unlike Adobe and its expensive software, they are comparable.

About Christopher
With eight years experience at Valencia College and 2 years at University of Central Florida I have experienced a wide variety of students between the ages 7 to 60 years. This experience has enabled me to customize lessons in one to one sessions with each unique student and their unique needs.

My teaching methodologies include plenty of visual aids, simile's, and clear communication with a strong emphasis on Socratic questioning to stimulate critical thought in helping to understand and take control of the information to be learned.

Sessions include visual and auditory components to learning and for students who need kinetic interaction to fulfill their learning process assignments can be assigned or custom problems can be created to be solved with an overview process of what is understood and what needs to be better diagnosed.

About Jason
NOTE: Please check with me before booking as that my schedule changes frequently.

My educational background is in journalism with a minor in English and I've always been enamored with the literary and visual arts. I published my first book featuring poetry along with photography in 2006 and have since written four more.

My photography has been published in several magazines as well including the following:

Fahrenheit USA – Nov. 2015
My Belleza Inc. – April 2016
Tres Jolie – May 2016

In 2007, I started the business called Three Rivers Creative Arts providing creative service including photography, writing, editing and graphic design.

As a person who likes the opportunity to help others and to work with all of these types of areas, I thought that a great website like this one here at TakeLessons could allow me to do both

Jason is easy going and open to any format you need. He was patient with my learning style and went over things I was most interested in. I appreciate his honesty and his sharing of tools to simplify my design needs. All and all a good first experience for me with takelessons and instructor. ;)

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.
