Despite what TakeLessons says about my location, I can come to you even if you don't live on the East side.

About John
I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for 10 years now. I also have experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ever wondered how musicians write music? Why do they make the choices they make? Why do those choices work? Why does music work the way that it does? I can answer all these questions and much more.

With me as your guide, I will unlock your musical superpowers and make you capable of things you didn't know were possible. I have many different methods for teaching not only technique, but how to listen, and ho
w to think creatively so that you can unlock your full potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my guitar, picks, and tuner and that's really all you will need as well.

I'll occasionally bring my laptop with me to use some music software to assist in my lessons.

I'll always have pens and paper so I can make notes or diagrams if needed. I highly recommend that my students have a spiral notebook so I can more easily cater to them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many musical genres including rock, ska, punk, progressive, jazz, folk, and more. Music theory is a big part of what I do as it's the universal language of music. If you learn enough theory, you can learn ANY instrument.

My son was new guitar player, he has now had several lessons with John. We have seen his skills grown exponentially. John really connects with him and keeps him engaged. He has taught him soo much in such a short span of time. John is a fantastic teacher!

John seems to customize his lesson to you. He teaches the basic, and theory behind why these chords go together and helps you learn the music you are interested in. He goes at a slow pace, so that you have time to practice and really pick up what he is showing you

History is far more than memorizing names and dates, and I don't think it should be taught like that either. We work at understanding what happened and why it happened while understanding when it happened.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, and have been a professional tutor for 9 years.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have a Master's Degree in Education (Higher Ed. and Curriculum Development). I have a Tutoring and Educational Consulting business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my specialization is geared in four areas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Science).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the
research for them), essays, creative writing - including citation & formatting.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including Shakespeare.

4) Test Prep: ACT, SAT, PSAT, ISEE, TACHS

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, and a willingness to learn and have fun.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

I have been tutoring academic subjects for five years, and history is a particular strong suit of mine. I minored in history as an undergraduate student and am now studying history as a graduate student. We will work on understanding historical events, as well as social studies concepts. We can work on projects as well work on analytical questions and Regents prep.

About Melissa
Hi there! I'm Melissa, and I am a fashion design and sewing teacher on Staten Island. I have been teaching children and adults how to sew since 2014. I've been sewing since I was a child, and I've been teaching since 2007.

I am mostly self-taught, and that, coupled with my youth, gives me a unique perspective when teaching. My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson- almost all of my students finish the first hour with a handy drawstring bag to keep their new sewing supplies in. I have a specific sewing curriculum for the first 3-5 lessons that helps lay a groundwork for making more exciting things.

After we finish those steps, I work individually with students to make whatever they would like, from Halloween costumes to memory pillows to peplum tops. The choice is
yours. I'm not the kind of teacher that is going to make you spend hours mastering a straight hem because frankly, that's really boring. I want you to learn while working on projects you care about

My experience includes;

-I worked in a tutoring school teaching kids from ages 5-17 in all subjects.
-I designed a program called Creative Studios for creative writing, fashion design and fine art. I taught these subjects to students aged 8-12.
-I teach sewing and fashion design (including fashion drawing) to various students in a one on one format.
-I teach fashion design and sewing to tweens, teens, and adults at SI Dance and Arts Center
-I am a resident costumer for Sundog Theatre.
-I taught at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund Saturday Academy
-I am pursuing a Masters in Adolescent Education in Social Studies

Please note that I am located in Staten Island, NY. I may be able to accommodate some Brooklyn students, but please inquire before booking. I have locations in 10306 and 10309 that can accommodate students if you don't wish to learn in home.

My studio space is located at Staten Island Dance and Art Center. It's a lovely, artsy space with bright yellow walls, four sewing machines, 2 professional mannequins, and a closet full of fabric and notions!

As a young professional, pursuing my passion for education has become paramount. Since graduating from high school, I have taken advantage of every opportunity to hone such skills. My drive and determination to pursue my passion for education are steadfast. To have the ability to shape young minds through meaningful yet exciting lessons in my very own classroom space is a responsibility and a privilege I will never take lightly.  

Furthermore, the knowledge I have gained through various jobs and internships have only further reaffirmed my passion for teaching young minds. As a result, I have garnered a sense of dedication and appreciation while working in such an environment. Therefore, I believe that my creative insight and strong work ethic could be of great benefit.

About Zach
As a current student enrolled at the Touro College of Education, I have taken a strong interest in pursuing a full-time teaching career.

For as long as I can recall, my curiosity to learn more propelled me to do my own research, so that I became informed enough to discuss such topics with my teachers throughout middle school, high school, and eventually college. Being able to speak candidly and intellectually with my teacher(s) brought me a feeling of accomplishment, satisfaction, and, of course, the desire to keep doing more. Keep doing more research. Keep bringing these lessons to light. Keep expressing my views. 

At an old enough age, I became responsible enough to supervise young children giving up my Sunday mornings to being a Hebrew school teacher’s assistant, or madrich, for five years taught me what it is like to work with child
ren in a classroom setting. 

In addition, I would spend my four summers at sleepaway camp as a bunk counselor supervising 10-15 campers at a time, to coaching lacrosse for boys and girls ages 7-17. Furthermore, these concepts of responsibility, leadership, and lesson planning have helped shape me into becoming the educator that I aspire to be.

I have my bachelor's degree in History and am excited to share my knowledge and passion with others. I can teach Elementary, Middle, and High School history including complete U.S. History, Civics, and Government. I also can teach more specialized topics such as Tudor and Stuart History, Middle Ages, Enlightenment, Protestant Reformation, and the Renaissance era.

My goal is to not only teach you the facts but also to help you develop your own love for the subject.

About Amber
I am a life long history lover and overall history nerd. I fell in love with history when I was 10 years old and learned about the Attack on Pearl Harbor in my fourth-grade history class. From that day one, I was hooked on learning all about the past and unlocking the secrets it holds.

I received my Bachelor's degree in history in December 2016 and I am currently pursuing a Masters degree. I have only a little actual paid teaching experience but I have been a tutor in both High School and College. I have the passion and knowledge to teach a variety of historical subjects, as well as assist with academic tests, research papers, and annotated bibliographies.

Amber is an outstanding instructor, and I would have to say without her help I would not have been able to pass my U.S. History courses. She was very helpful when explaining certain time periods, giving examples to remembering important names in history, and also helped when preparing for mid-term reports needing to be submitted. Whilst writing certain reports Amber also helped finding certain sources to use in my papers, and easily helped me with citing certain points in my paper. Truly recommend to other individuals who are seeking help with History!

Amber helped me to pass my college U.S. History course. She was able to explain the subject in a way that was easy to understand, and without overwhelming me with dates and names. She also helped me with my research paper, by helping me chose a topic that interested me, finding resources, and with making sure my citations were correct. If it wasn't for her I probably wouldn't have passed the class.
