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.

About Stephen
I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston with a degree in Piano and Film Scoring.
I love many styles which include, Film scores, Pop, New age, Rock, improv, Classical and some Jazz.
I teach basic to intermediate. (Scales, finger exercises, chords, arpeggios, theory, simple songs, posture and breathing, etc.)

Last year, I taught an eight year old girl and three boys. I currently worked at Piano Playtime where I teach twelve Kindergarten to 4th grade group piano lessons. I am fun, easy to get along with, and very patient with kids and adults.

In the past, I scored a local film titled "The Times Were Never So Bad: The Life of Andre Dubus" who's son Andre Dubus III wrote the story "The House of Sand and Fog." In 2003 the novel was adapted into a film starring Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. The film won first place
at the Providence Film Fest in 2007. I also composed a jingle for the online college Capella University.

I have a car and can come to your location or you can come to me depending on distance. I look forward in sharing this musical journey with you!

About Eli
I am a professional artist, specializing in pen and ink landscape drawings and illustrations. I graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a BA in studio art, concentration in drawing in 2014.

I've since moved back to the Boston area, where I'm from originally, and have shown and hung my drawings in many different venues around the city. I've taught workshops at Northeastern University, the Brookline Library and the Newton Library, and led classes to elementary school kids, teens and adults. With kids I often teach comic book art, and for teens and adults, we go more fine, teaching basic drawing techniques. Students can expect to learn how to use different drawing tools like charcoal, ink, pencil, conte crayon, etc...

Students will also learn composition, perspective, and different ways to create dynamic and visually appealing images. light an
d shadow, shading, creating and fleshing out various objects and forms, and more!

Lessons can be tailored to the interests of the student! If there's an area you are keen to focus on or improve, i'm happy to address and focus on it with you.

Eli has been teaching my son (8) and he loves his drawing lessons! He helps teach techniques that we wanted to focus on and I have already seen an improvement.

Eli is fantastic and has a great rapport with kids. He seems incredibly knowledgeable, very response, nice and funny, and currently teaches in an amazing artists space. He challenged my daughter outside of her normal comfort zone in a super fun way and she immediately asked for more lessons after the initial trial. Will definitely continue with more lessons.

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 Amber
Hey y'all,

My name is Amber, I am a full time art studio major and I work from home. I really enjoy all mediums of art, however, charcoal and acrylic are my favorite to work with. I am willing to learn what I have to to help my students succeed.

Painting, charcoal work and drawing are my main focus points. I love to do many forms of art and try new techniques.

If there is something you want to learn that i dont have a wide range of knowledge, let me know and I can see what i can do to point you in the right direction.

Amber is always willing to help with any project and offers great advice, whether you’re just starting out in drawing or you’ve been working at your art for a while. She helps critique with an open mind and doesn’t talk down to you as she offers advice and direction with each piece, or even smaller section. Thank you for taking the time to sit down with me and work on my artwork, even if it was to just offer a few points on technique and style.

About Mary
I am a recent college graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. My main areas of concentration are drawing and painting, but I am also trained in printmaking, photography, sculpture, etc. Being an artist means being a lot of things. You are not someone with just a hobby; you are an engineer, mathematician, planner, risk taker, designer, scientist. The list goes on. I dedicate my life to problem-solving. This is what art is. I would love to share my knowledge and be able to continue to support my creative life by supporting the drive for success in others.

I have really no age limit in terms of students. If you are a parent looking for a teacher for a child/ren, that's great, we could have some fun constructing and working on anything from still lifes of their favorite toys to acrylic paintings that touch on color relationships. If you you
rself are looking to strengthen your drawing from nature or learn how to build a realistic self-portrait, that's great too. I'm willing and happy to do anything from spending time sculpting with a senior citizen to discussing and working on conceptual painting with a student in need of more outside fuel and support for their creative fire. I believe that teaching to think like an artist is just as important as teaching technical ability. I've become adept at both of these skills in my four years at the University of Dayton, and I am so excited to share with and learn from you in return!

I will first explain the creative variables in photography, aperture, shutter speed, focal length and so forth. Then I will show you how your camera allows you to control those creative variables. You learn to boss the camera around and have a great deal of fun. I have taught all ages, along with creating a robust teaching website that you can use for free.
