About Detrece

DeTrece "Dee" Lavender is a native of Miami, Florida. When her family moved to Sarasota, she was afforded the opportunity to study music and the performing arts as a student of the Westcoast School/Henry L. Porter School of Music. It was then that Dee began to understand the power of the creative arts as an effective form of emotional expression and release. By middle school, DeTrece began fine tuning her natural talents by studying classical voice which earned her several starring roles in the Sarasota Youth Opera, The Aslo Theater and the Players Theater. She is also a proud former member of the Westcoast Black Theater Troop in Sarasota, FL. Under the caring leadership of these opportunities, she was able to combine musical and life experiences in order to offer a more well rounded educational and musical experience for her students.



She was awarded a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, where she received a dual Bachelor of Music degree in Music Therapy and Vocal Performance (Class of 2003). It was through her service as a music therapist, Millieu (residential) counselor and music teacher in the Boston City Public Schools/Greater Boston Metropolitan Area, that she began to feel the call toward a greater understanding of the gravity and role of the socio-emotional needs of students (and their families/villages) in urban settings. This call brought her to Baltimore, MD where she enrolled in the Pastoral Counseling Masters of Science program at Loyola University. In addition to her studies, she currently teaches Elementary and Middle School choir/ Musicianship teacher in the Baltimore City Public Schools through the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's OrchKids Program. She also serves as Minister Of Music and Arts at two local churches.

I had such an amazing experience training with Detrece! She always has such sweet positive energy. I was so happy that with me being more of an advanced singer she was able to teach me about my voice and tips that I never knew! I only had 5 lessons and still had a vocal breakthrough where she helped me realize my range is wider than I thought. She gave me more confidence and is always seeking to share opportunities with me. I’m so grateful to her!!

I really hit JACKPOT with Joanne. Joanne is very technical, yet explains things in a manner to make you understand. I had a great first session with Joanne and look forward to many more, as my budget permits. She helped me with exactly what I needed help with and taught me a few things in the meantime.

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

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 Nicole

I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on

your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

About Joshua

Hey future students!

A while back, I taught myself photoshop. Since then I perfected my craft and have had hundreds of clients in my own freelance business.

Yes, hundreds.

And they always love my work!

But what was more important for me was being able to create anything I could imagine and share that with the world.

Photoshop is a tool that lets you bring your thoughts to the screen and being comfortable in the program is like having a super-power.

So how do you get this ability?

I’ll tell you...

I will teach you everything from the ground up so you become a Photoshop master. Starting with the basics and then moving to advanced concepts.

You will know all the tips, tricks and hot-keys that will have you buzzing about the app like a wizard. . When you are able to utilize Photoshop like this, people are so impres

sed they might hire you or share your work with their friends… i.e. you end up going viral. You might think of the next great business Idea and now you will finally be able to create your vision.

This may just be the most powerful course you take to date.

So click the link and let's get started right now…

It’s going to blow your mind when you learn how much power Photoshop actually gives you.

Now, with this tutoring, I am giving you something valuable that took me a long time to master. Not everyone is willing to invest time and effort into improving themselves, but you are so you deserve the best.

In my course, you’ll learn:
Photoshop core and advanced functionality
+
Why certain graphics look perfect while others are doomed from the get-go

The 3 simple traits that all great designs have in common

How to easily edit and retouch photos to make flawless or surreal content

And so much more...

About Maxwell

Hello!

My name is Maxwell Nelson a passionate web developer and teacher of all things tech. I started my web development journey while working security and taught myself Java and Ruby - from there I jumped to JavaScript and have been using it ever since. I have 6+ years in the industry working for large multi-billion dollar tech consultancy firms to tiny tech startups consisting of 5 or less employees. I have taught web development to friends and worked for a bootcamp teaching students the basics all the way to advanced web development. It is my belief everyone should learn to code as it comes with fantastic benefits and ensures outstanding success in their future. I have experience building websites, web applications and mobile development all using JavaScript associated frameworks and libraries such as Angular and React. These lessons

are specifically designed for the student and I change the teaching style on a case-by-case basis, it is absolutely necessary to merge the experiences of the student into the curriculum and translate those experiences into code with examples.

About Gustavo

I know what it's like to go from knowing nothing to making a career in computer science. I felt like I was really behind everybody else in my age group but I was able to pick it up quickly and learn what was relevant from the get go. I teach the most important things you need in order to advance your computer programming skills and skip over anything unnecessary. Without a guide, it will be hard to figure out what is and what is not relevant to becoming a good programmer. I will teach you the most important concepts as fast and efficiently as possible even to a complete beginner who hasn't written any lines of code. I hope you give me a shot and you will definitely not regret it.
