About Alex
I have been teaching private lessons since 2001 and I am currently available to teach lessons online or in my office. As a professor , I have helped students in a number of computer science and math oriented areas including standardizes tests, as well as helping them have the confidence to overcome struggles with difficult subjects.

I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, and that no one perfect method exists to teach all students. During our lessons I try to take note of whats working and whats not, and when I find types of examples that work, I keep using them to help you accelerate your learning

Alex, being well seasoned in academia and founding an analytics company has provided him a broad knowledge in statistical software (E.g. R, Minitab, etc.). His approach to learning is simply holistic. With all seriousness, it can only be said that Alex walks on water. Alex can vividly describe the story behind the data, giving you the frame of reference needed to retain what you had learned. Discussing his abilities and his willingness help, it would be more accurate to compare him to Yoda, than anything else. He is one with statistical software. Having an hour session with him is like three days of studying on my own.

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

About Katya
I got my first students in high school when I helped teachers and gave classes to the kids from primary and since that time I've been teaching different people different things.
I graduated as economics specialist & teacher of economic theory
and it gives me a great knowledge of how to build classes what method to choose etc but I prefer to teach more practical and useful things.
I enjoy sharing things I know to help others live better simpler life. It's so exciting to see how my student starts practicing things she learnt and how it influences her life. Small excel tip helps to finish tasks in 5 minutes instead of hours of work. Yoga asana which gives you joy and balance for the whole day. Receipt of healthy no-sugar dessert which is more tasty than anything in Cheesecake factory. Small things change your life.
I'm friendly and ea
sy-going person and I know how to make classes efficient and interesting.

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

About Joey
Hello Artist-in-Progress,

We are all artists-in-progress because, no matter how good we are, we can always get better!

I'm Mr. Joey and I love art and I love teaching art! I am a graduate of The Art Institute and an artist and animator that creates art in pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolor, and digital mediums.

I recommend that classes are *at least* 1.5 hours (and I really recommend 2 hours!) because that's what's needed to critique homework assignments, warmup, and do the work for the class, and not be rushed.

Classes I teach are:

• Drawing Fundamentals
• Advanced Drawing
• People and Anatomy
• Portrait Drawing
• Cartoon Characters for Animation
• Character Design
• 2D Animation
• Digital Painting in Photoshop
• Digital Animation

Please view samples of my work and contact me with any questions you may hav
e.

I look forward to helping you develop your art skills and express your creativity!

Mr. Joey

About David
My name is David and I've been shooting photos and videos since I was a teenager. I've watched the amateur photo and video scene explode as I went through high school and college, learning just as much online as I did from going to film school. Now, I want to help others by imparting some of my knowledge I've gathered through my varied experiences.

I'm currently an in-house content creator for an independent K-12 school, but I've freelanced for musicians and non-profits as well as worked in a boutique Los Angeles production studio. I've learned and seen a lot over the years that has informed not only what I do but also how I advise others in my field.

While staying current with trends and technology is vital in the digital arts, it's important to study the classics that brought us to this point and understand the foundations that vis
ual art is build on. My lessons are not just about teaching you how to use a camera or software, but also design and composition principles.

I am a full-time freelance graphic designer and photographer with 6 years of experience. I have a passion for mentoring and tutoring teens and encouraging their creativity, and I have led photography workshops for youth in Los Angeles and Beirut, Lebanon.

I can teach graphic design principles, including web design, and how to use industry-standard design software including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

As a professional graphic designer, I use Adobe Creative Suite on a daily basis to create design projects for my clients. I am an expert user of Adobe Creative Suite programs including InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. Adobe programs are very robust with features and can be intimid

I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Northeastern University with a concentration in photography, and am working towards a Self-Designed Certificate from the Los Angeles Center for Photography.
