I cook almost every day. As a German, I am used to homemade food and I am sure there is a lot I can teach my students.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

I love cooking and I am very enthusiastic about it. I still get excited over a beautiful cut of beef or the perfume of fresh cut basil. My teaching stems from my natural joy of cooking and using fresh ingredients. I'm patient, fun and I truly enjoy teaching my students to cook.

I also offer small party cooking classes where I teach 3 course dinners. These classes are limited to groups of 3 and are booked by using 3 (60) minute sessions in one evening.

Groups between 4 and 6 are booked by using the 4 (60) minute blocks for one evening.

Teaching is more a hobby and pleasure for me than a side job. My students mostly have to remind me that the time is over and I have to let them go. ;)

In my classes you can learn how to make simple Italian family styles dinners for those evenings that you do not have a lot of time to cook or you can learn how to make a ...

About Lily
I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!

The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.

However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.

Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
techniques.

My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).

My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.

THE BEGINNER SEWER

In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:

- Sewing safety and how to use a machine
- Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using
- How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions
- How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems
- Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote).
- Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made.
- Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS:
- Pajamas
- Sewing Tote
- Basic Dress
- Pillow case

THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER
- Cement what you learned in the while a beginner.
- Learn to hand sew hems etc.
- Learn about different fabrics and when to use them.
- Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags.
- Learn about the different foots.
- Learn to do other stitches
-TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes
- Bags
-

THE ADVANCED SEWER
- Work on your own projects you choose with help.
- Work with harder fabrics.
-Use a zipper foot to sew an invisible zipper.
- Learn to do advanced stitches
-Learn about pleats and darts.
- TAKE AWAY PROJECTS
- Prom dress
- Suits
- Formal Coats
- Backpacks

Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.

About Dave
I owned my own deli and drop-off catering business for years. I have worked in high end Country Clubs, private schools and large corporations like Marriott and Sodexo. My food philosophy is food tastes best in its natural state and healthy food can be delicious. I am lucky to be able to express my artistic side in the creation of food and I am positive people can learn to eat well, happily. I love all the different classes and events I am able to create and teach as well as the food we get to enjoy doing so! It's so much fun to meet new people every day and watch them learn!

The class was a blast. My wife and I gave each other a gift to take a cooking class from Dave Hammer. The lessons weren't too complicated and even an old guy like me was able to do it. A great date night for any couple. Highly recommended.

Oh hi! I’m Ayesha, just your average next door girl who loves and enjoys great food & fun company. I’ve always enjoyed cooking and I specialize in Pakistani & Indian cuisine. my love for food and cooking was always there but slowly it turned into passion. Whether its watching food network, making my mom’s recipes, creating new flavors or just exploring new cuisine, I’m up for it all. Sometimes i feel so lucky that my family shares the same passion with me, they all love food, and are always up for trying new cuisines.

Hi everyone. My name is Odalys. I was born in Puerto Rico, raised in south NJ. My father was a cook in the army which is where I get my love for cooking. As for my passion for food I can not tell you.... I am obsessed. My whole childhood I wanted to be a cook. I watched all the cooking shows. Right after high school I attended Culinary school for a year and a half until I realized I did not want to work fifteen hours in a hot sweaty kitchen with a hairnet, no makeup on, and no finger nail polish. I did end up dropping out but I never stopped cooking. I show my love through feeding my family very delicious simple meals. I am a busy mom of two. Most days I get home at 5pm, go to the gym till 7, that gives me one hour to go grocery shopping and have dinner ready by 8pm. I want to share with you all, easy 30 min or less meals, super simple crock pot meals, 5 ingredient meals, and even using only what is in your pantry meals. Some of my favorites are shrimp and grits, buffalo chicken mac ...
