About Daniel
I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.

Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning abou
t you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!

For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.

This is my fifth lesson with Jose. In that time he showed me how to read, write drum notation/score, play fills, and tightened up my overall playing. I am very pleased with my sound and I can't wait to learn more.

About Erol
***ADDRESSES WITHIN REMOTE AREAS (no public transit or bicycle access) DIFFICULT TO SERVICE PHYSICALLY. Lesson cancellations and schedule changes need to be submitted through Takelessons.com student website, relieve busy teacher from multiple informal requests***

My style and attitude toward teaching is a balance between subject delivery and reflective, supportive interaction. I seek to enable current research on education for busy, yet goal-driven student interests. This is done through customized online lessons coordinating the experience with optimal resources and tools: ESL and Speech students learn to monitor their own phonological issues with dedicated software/feedback, guiding German students through conversational dialogues, and ensuring relevant resources for Excel and related productivity lessons.

Due to my limited funds
, I do not have direct experience with the Adobe suite, but I have extensive knowledge of related, free distributions that are transferable. Possibly the only PhD on Takelessons server from a regionally accredited university, I am a member of the American Council on Foreign Language Learning and the Association for Language Learning.
My most popular subjects are as follows:

North American English Pronunciation Practice for ESL (NAEPP-ESL) or Accent-Reduction:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 recordings, and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Carefully following Burkkowsky's (1969) multi-media method, I have taught this subject for over five years for public and private causes, such as library, individuals, and language schools. German Language and Culture:
*****Each Online Lesson with Free Video & MP3 Recordings and about 50 GB onedrive folder for lesson files*****

Microsoft Excel:
***It is recommended students own or have regular access to a personal computer after 2002 in order to get the best benefit***

About Jeremiah
I am excited to begin teaching lessons in music, Bible, and academics. I have the knowledge necessary to teach my students beginning and intermediate levels of music and Bible as well as offer help with academic needs.

I am a graduate of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Music and Bible. Whether my students want to develop an interest and love for music, Bible, and/or academics, I want to be an example, mentor, and friend and show them that learning is fun and has value. Within professional standards, I do not intend to convert students, however I would be glad to share my faith and knowledge to those who express interest in learning more.

Though I have limited experience in teaching, I have the knowledge and skills necessary to explain concepts. My future plans include becomin
g certified in multiple instruments (piano, voice, and possibly clarinet and guitar) through the Music Teacher National Association (MTNA) so that I can possess more credentials and better credibility in my future teaching endeavors.

Please consider me as your instructor so we can begin this learning journey together.

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.
