About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

About Jacob
Hi there and thank you for considering me as your personal mentor in the world of digital artistry. A long time ago this world was just a hobby for me as well, and I hope to help you develop your skill set into something much more. I have over a decade of exposure to the rapidly-adapting professional photo and video world, with experience spanning from the smallest of freelance jobs all the way to mainstream feature film production and post. You can spend a lot of money in workshops or online training, but nothing comes close to the value of one-on-one personalized training. Because I enjoy teaching, I make an effort to keep rates affordable for the value of education given. If you're a photographer wanting to make your photos look like the pro photos you see online or a videographer looking to advance your work to the next level then wel
come aboard!

I look forward to meeting you.

I had a great experience with Jacob as an instructor. He is knowledgeable and his advice was relevant and to the point. He invested time to critique my work and even sent detailed notes. Highly recommend!

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

My experience with this teacher was great! She was very easy to talk to and she was very nice and straight to the point about each of the topics. She also talked about herself and what were my interest and goals that I wanted to get to with her lessons. I just wish that my screen could be shared like hers! So a tip! MAKE SUTE THAT YOU CAN SHARE YOUR SCREEN WITH THE TEACHER BEFORE THE LOSSON STARTS BECAUSE YOU’LL NEED IT... TRUST ME!!!!

About Stacy
Hi, my name is Stacy! For 4 years, I pursued a BS in Computer Science as part of my goal to become a video game developer. I received the Stephen P. Hepler Academic Award in Computer Science, the most prestigious award in the CS Department at Wayne State University. However, before I could finish my degree, I injured my hands from typing too much. During my recovery, I discovered that I really enjoyed helping others learn programming. My world has never been the same.

For the past 4 years, I've been mentoring students for the online code-learning organization Udacity. I've provided feedback on student projects, assisted students on the discussion forum, and worked with students 1-on-1 in video and text chats. Through these, I've helped thousands of students with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Python for Udacity's Front-End Nanodegree and I
ntro to Programming Nanodegree programs. Because of my experience, I've also assisted in training and advising other mentors at Udacity.

How would tutoring work? First, I want to know what you want to do and what your goals are. From there, I'll make lesson plans that help you work toward those goals. If you're not quite sure about what direction you want to go, that's OK, too. I'll help you figure it out.

That said, I empathize with my students in their struggles. I'm not going to talk over your head, instead working to break down complex topics to make them easy and fun to understand. Also, I'll help you shoot down those doubts you have about your own abilities. I want you to realize that if you can put in the time and the effort to do something, you really can pull it off!

So what do you say? Feel free to reach out with any questions!

About Serena
Hi! This is Serena. I have two bachelor degrees in filmmaking and media studies and history from the University of Minnesota. I have been working in digital filmmaking and live studio recording professionally for over 4 years. As of my second history major, my focused area of study is in Europe and I've done multiple research studies in the Middle East. I scored 5 on AP World History, AP European History, and 4 in AP American History. I will make history such an interesting subject for you to learn!

I have been learning Dutch at the University of Minnesota for 4 years and have a Dutch minor degree. I'm also certified in Dutch proficiency through the Department of German, Scandinavian, and Dutch at the University of Minnesota. I've lived in Amsterdam from 2017-2018. I know how to efficiently and systematically teach the Dutch la
nguage based on my own experience.

Ballet has been my passion for almost 18 years. I started when I was 3 (now I'm 22), and I only love ballet more and more each day. I was trained in the Vaganova style of ballet (Russian) until I was 14 in Minnesota. When I moved to Ohio for high school, the dance school in my area taught in the Balanchine style of American ballet. When I returned to Minnesota for college in 2015, I started dancing at the Minnesota Dance Theater. I recently moved to Florida and run my own home dance studio.

Hope to see you guys in class!

Serena was a wonderful instructor/tutor to my 12yr old son. He was able to absorb the material easily and retain the lessons learned in order to improve his performance at school. I would definitely recommend Serena if you are serious about learning a specific subject you or your children may be lacking in.

I took a film production history with Serena and to my big surprise the course was quite interesting. I needed help with Film production history so I wont have to retake the class and I'm glad Serena was able to help me. she made the class that was actually dreadful to me to something less challenging. Give her a shot guys you won't regret it. Thanks Serena
